Haven't been back to this restaurant for some time because of the smoky bar. Since smoking is not allowed anymore the restaurant is beautifully decorated in Old World German ambience. Had their Wienerschnitzel and was not disappointed. They have an extensive menu with a great beer selection. Everything from hamburgers to steak and great salads make this a great choice... More

We actually went for dinner to Mack's Golden Pheasant because we had read all of the reviews that talked about the German food, including spaetzle. What we didn't count on was that a lot of the German specials were for Oktoberfest and not in November. Located on North Ave., just west of 83, it is easily reached from eastbound North... More

Felt like a real local bar with a cozy environment. The menu was 50% German/ Central Europe and 50% All American. Highly recommended, not too expensive not too fancy, but cozy, especially the bar area.

I love the food at this place! It reminds me of childhood. Schnitzel is the best and the desserts are all made in house. The atmosphere is old and tired but the people and food make up for it. Even their hamburgers are the best. If you're in the mood for good food and a relaxed dining experience you will... More

Mack's Friday night fish fry is one of the best around. The ambience of an "old school" dinner club is warm and relaxing. The service is great and they always keep your plate full of fish.

Great food options! The Czech beer was a great choice to go w/the dinner. The dumpling was more of a roll. I was expecting a knoedl. That said, save room for the fried cheesecake. That one was added & checked off the bucket list on the same day!

Loved the decor of this restaurant. Food was good but soup was bland. My husband didnt like the fish fry because the breading reminded him of sweet and sour chicken. Service was fantastic and wouldve loves to sit on the beautiful patio but it was too hot.

We went as a family of 9 to this family restaurant for Sunday brunch. What a wonderful day we had! Well worth the trip! We had a 2 hour trip (each way) which was a trip we will make again! This restaurant is family owned and family run. Those employees that are not family by blood are family by design.... More

I love a restaurant where there are candles on the tables (okay, they're small oil lamps, but you get the picture!) and a staff that really cares about the diners. We got there at a busy time on a Friday night, and had no wait for a table but a short wait for our server. The hostess pitched right in... More
