As bad as it gets. The Scotch Eggs we had were disgusting, even after eating only half of one I became sick and my boyfriend felt nauseous all evening afterwards. The owner was very smug, and seems to be struggling with "little man's"

What a charming surprise this restaurant was. I know my friends were pleased as I was with just how good the bar food was. The hamburgers we outrageously good and my blackened chicken sandwich and steak fries were deliciously good. I can

I almost didn't go to Mac Nivens due to one bad review. What a mistake that would have been. If you want a laid back, comfortable place to grab a local beer and enjoy some unique and tasty PUB food, Mac Nivens Restaurant is the place.

The review from the gentleman who likes Delerium Tremons is partly true. They were asked to leave; for being extremely rude to one of my bar guests. His 'friend' who sat down on a bar stool did so at the expense of the person who was

I went to this bar because it was one of the whole two places in town that sold Delerium Tremens, one of my favorite beers. I walked in with five friends and we were immediately given bad looks. The server refused to serve us or seat us until we showed our IDs (even though we are all in our 30s). Then she called the manager because one of my friends had sat down on a bar stool while waiting. The manager decided that it was rude to sit down without being asked to and told us we needed to be polite when coming into his bar. He told us to leave and when we started asking questions (keep in mind we are all doctors and just curious about what was happening) he told us he was going to call the cops. He did. And he told us that he didn't need us and didn't need people like us. Unbelieveable experience. The owner acts racist and the staff couldn't have been less polite. One of the worst experiences in Indianapolis. I would never go there again.
Just terrible.

Pros: Good selection of beer

Cons: Terrible service, dirty bathrooms, slight sense of racism

This is the perfect place to start the night. The service isn't the best but I've never really had a bad experience. The high prices do make it easy to run up a tab here. The atmosphere is very relaxed and chill with the low lighting.

Visited Mac Nivens with two others to celebrate a birthday. The waitress was not attentive, and was very impatient with us - she wanted to take our drink order immediately. We indicated we wanted to take a look at their listing of beers, so she went away (for about 30 seconds). We all ordered the fish and chips (which I understand they are known for), and quite frankly it was a REALLY big disappointment. The serving size was quite ample, but the quality was just not there. The batter on the fish was tough and not at all tasty. The chips were just ordinary steak fries - the kind you would by in the freezer case at the grocery store - nothing special at all.

When I asked for a refill on my diet coke, the waitress said OK, took my glass and never brought my drink back. She did, however, return with the bill (very promptly, I might add).

If you want GOOD food, don't go to Mac Nivens.

A group of friends met for dinner. The server was delightful and the food was good. When another group of friends arrived to join us, the hostess very rudley told them they were not welcome. When a member of our party tried to talk to her the hostess and manager called her a bxxxx. We were talking to some people at another table and were told we weren't allowed to talk to anyone at other tables. The manager bad mouthed us the whole time we were there and told us we could leave before we got our food but we had to pay for it. We were not loud or rude at any time. I will never go into that place again and I will make sure all my friends stay away also.

This popular Mass Ave pub/restaurant is the place to go for a rare selection of beers and the ONLY place in town I know where you can try Scottish food. Beer may bring you in but the scotch eggs, haggis on bread (order extra bread) and their beef stew will keep you coming back. They also have a variety of more standard fare and bar food. Safe to say it is THE BEST Scottish themed pub/restaurant in Indianapolis!
