I had my baby shower here in their semi-private room and it was perfect. The staff was very attentive and there was just enough room for our party (about 35 of us). We had a brunch buffet and the food was fresh and everyone commented especially on the yummy Vermont Maple salad- very good! I would definitely recommend their side... More

We had soup of day, 3 sandwiches and a salad. Delicious. Everyone ate every bite! Friendly staff and no crowds. Rewards card is a must because you will go back!

Delicious food, large menu. A lot of beers on tap, including local favorites. We enjoy sitting out on their patio. Service is always friendly & prompt.

Six couples go to dinner one weekend every month. At Christmas each couple put two "mystery" restaurants in a bowl and we draw a new restaurant each month to eat at. February was McAllister's. Everyone agreed they would be back to eat here again. Orders ranged from Goat Cheese Chicken, to Pot Pie, to Fish and Chips. It didn't matter... More

Went with my son after golf and was disappointed to the Fish and Chips which out wait person started was their signature dish. Fish had a heavy batter and was over cooked. Fries wear nothing special and again, a disappointment. Slaw was good, but you only received a tiny amount. Good draft beer selection and friendly wait person. Would recommend... More

This was my first time visiting Main Street Lakewood ranch. The atmosphere was new and sophisticated but being a foodie the majority of the restaurants seemed mediocre until we reached Macallisters. Although it was an Scottish restaurant it gave me the feel of an Irish pub meets fine dining. We started with the spicy fries (which were amazing). I don't... More

We enjoyed a neighborhood brunch in which MacAllisters opened their restaurant just for us for Sunday brunch, not normally open on Sunday mornings. The buffet was plentiful and the food was good. We eat there frequently for lunch and it is always great! Their New England chowder is one of the best! The servers were very attentive.
