So I'm a Chicago native, naturally I am biased to Chicago themed bars, but this place is incredible. Floor to ceiling, wall to wall Chicago memorabilia. Awesome place to hang out. If I lived In Charleston (as a friend of mine does) this would be my go to place. Definitely doesn't have a touristy feel, drinks are affordable, and the... More

Favorite bar in Charleston, hands down! Lotsa Chicago sports paraphernalia with a Midwest flavor to its menu. Great bar food, friendly staff and owner, terrific beer selection. Always stop here when in Charlestown.

Outside view is deceptive - looks grungy. It's much better inside. Usual fare on offer but no complaints from anyone about the food. Service good.

Have always liked Macs Place since moving to Charleston 4 years ago. But, last few times it seems like something is off. Made a special trip there today for the cheese stuff pretzel. Unfortunately, today it wasn't so good, very hard and hardly any cheese inside. Usually it comes with side of ranch or marinara sauce. Since we ordered 2... More

The wings are the best, very meaty and sauces were tasty (I had Carolina gold and hot barbecue). Drinks were very reasonable and I was lucky enough to be there during a Cubs playoff win.

The atmosphere is all Chicago sports teams. Have no fear they play all teams on request. My favorites are Italian beef and the Chicago style hot dog.

This is a Sport's Bar folks. Nothing wrong with that, it's good food at a reasonable price with plenty of TVs for every game playing. We were there on a Saturday and they happily found the football game we wanted to watch and put it on next to our table. Good service with happy bartenders and waitresses. Booths were a... More
