I told the bar tender if he would make change for me to feed the parking meter we would come back for lunch. He made change but I'm not sure he believed we would return. We returned for a very nice lunch. The Chicken Noodle Soup was hot and full of chicken and vegetables. The Ruben was just what a... More

Mac's has a laid back atmosphere and wonderful food choices. Mostly fried foods, but they serve salads and other items for the more reserved eater.

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.
