My family has been a loyal patron to the Mac Gregor since it opened, until 2 years ago when we noticed the food and service going downhill. I don't think the menu has changed in years, and there is no pride in their food. Tried again for

Best place around to watch some sports, have a good beer, and chow down on some great food. We love it here.

My second time there will be my last time. My son's PB&J was old and horribly stale - like it was made the day before and left out for a while. My daughter's mandarin orange side "tastes old daddy". When asked how everything was I (in a friendly, but straighforward way) pushed the uneaten PB&J plate to the server and asked her to take it to her manager to see if he/she would eat it. It was so bad that someone in charge needed to know about it. Instead of a visit from the manager, I got a return from the server with a message "he/she took it off the bill for you". I'm sure this is exactly what my son was looking for, since all 7 year olds really care about is the restaurant bill when they dine out. No "let me get you something else". No "sorry about that, no excuse, our bad". Just a smug look like we were nuts for not eating the absolute crap they put on a plate for my child. Serving a hockey puck is one thing, but catching an attitude when it's brought to your attention makes you a bunch of 'kheads. Two thumbs down and one finger up for the draft house, maybe even a shocker. Don't go there.
There's a place with a much better draft selection and all the better things this place is lacking that is only 4 miles further down the road just past 55 near Borders.

Pros: decent draft beer selection

Cons: crappy food, service, and management

.

The service was terrible. The good was ok, nothing great but the prices was ok too. The selection is pretty good but not worth waiting forever for someone to notice your glass is empty.

Pros: Beer Selection, regular food

Cons: Service

.

Food was okay, not stellar. A decent price, for the amount of food we got. However, the atmosphere was lacking. Perhaps it was the cloud of cigarette smoke that hung in the air.

We've always been fans of MacGregor. In the last couple of years there have been a lot of changes including a huge non-smoking area. We now have children and it's great to go to a place to eat where DH can watch the game while the little ones color. They also have a great children's menu. Seldom have we encountered anything but pleasant staff. Highly recommend trying the pickle chips.

MacGregor Draft House has a reputation for good food at good prices. The food is still good, but the prices have really gone up.

Beer used to be 2.50/draft on Wednesday, it has now increased to 3.00/draft - and they now exclude the pricier brews.

There have been a series of food price increases, and they now charge for substitutions and extra sauces (which they never used to). The waitresses are under instructions to not tell the customers of these new charges, so the first you know about it is when your bill arrives at the end of the meal.

I know that times are tough and their costs must be up, but the way they are trying to sneak price increases on their loyal customers may not be the best solution to the challenges that they face.

Pros: good food, lots of beers on tap

Cons: 'bait and switch' pricing and hidden add-ons

.

Pretty good food and service and prices are ok. I would strongly suggest you not go to this place on a Sunday afternoon unless you are a Panthers or Bills fan. If you are, you will love the place. The manager seems like a pretty good guy, but not to bright. I can understand turning up the volume of the Bills game, because there a fail number of Bills fans there. But they will but the volume up on the Panthers.......the game that is on regular TV. Oh well, I guess you can't have it all.

Great place for a burger, fries and cold, draft beer. Service is always fast and efficient. Owner/manager is almost always there, a guarantee you will get great service.

Nachos some of the best in the Triangle.

Tip-All day on Saturday's, pint of draft is $2.50

Pros: Service, prices, smoke-free, draft beer

Cons: Non smoking side could use some fresh paint

I've been enjoying their food now for over 4 years and it is never anything but the best. It has to be one of the most versatile places to eat as well of anywhere I've ever been. Where else can you walk in and ask for fried jalapeno chips, an item that isn't even on the menu? Or a buffalo style grouper sandwich? If you enjoy soup, the potato soup is divine. If you enjoy salads, the Kentucky Fried Chicken salad buffalo style is awesome. No matter what you order, you can't go wrong.

PROS: Very large selection and everything is good.
CONS: Lunch can easily take 1.5 hours, depending on the crowd.
