Will never come back. While visiting several restaurants on first Friday in Leesburg my friends and I all over the age of 55 decided to try MacDowell’s for a drink and listen to the band. After waiting for nearly 10 minutes to get the attention...More

Excellent, ever changing beer selection. Actual sand and palm trees outside. Everyone who works here is a cool kid, and will make you feel like one too.

This place has a nice laid back feel right in the middle of Leesburg. We had the chance to try a few delicious beers and then shared a brisket sandwich and fish tacos. The brisket was very good but the fish tacos were insanely delicious!...More

Most outdoor beach seating in the sun, hot if it's sunny. Wanted a beer sampler.They offered samples but only sold by the glass.12 or 15 beers on tap, OK assortment. Food looked like typical bar food.

If it's a nice day, and you like to sit on a beach and have a snack, then this is 5 stars because it's the only beach bar in Loudoun County! They have lots of craft beers. Food is average: chicken tenders, fries, quesadillas, sandwiches,...More

As you might guess, the focus is on craft beer. Very cold and a nice selection. Cheeseburgers were really good. Outdoor seating area is pretty cool and this day they had a live band. A very relaxing and enjoyable experience. Will go again.

The staff was very friendly and pleasant. We came to MacDowell Brew Kitchen based on the wonderful experience family members had during a summer visit. It appears that it's a different place in the winter. Obviously there is not a backyard beach in January, but...More

MacDowell isn't going to be super fancy. But the food is always good, the beer selection is always great, and the customer service is always fantastic. Walked in on a Friday night with a party of twenty. They were more than hospitable and we had...More

I've had decent experiences and fair to poor experiences. Some of the beers on tap I've tried are horrible to average for the stuff they brew in house. The food is fairly typical pub grub nothing special. Outdoor beach area is the biggest draw here.
