Okay. I wanted this place to be good; great even... I live pretty close to Victory (the shock and awe brewpub), and I thought to myself "self, wouldn't it rule Earth if there's a second great brew pub near you?"

So I drove the icy roads of February to try out McKenzie's.

I walked in and was immediately told by the bouncers that the only dress code there is 'no hats'. No hats? Wacko. Who sat around and thought of that one? I'd like to see the minutes from that meeting... There's even a picture of a guy in a hat on the web site's front page... I respectfully removed my 'Beer Advocate dot com' hat... It was only a shadow of the lameness to come.

The place was packed with frat boy look-alikes and the girls who follow them... I must say the frat rats looked weird without their hats.

Anyway... there was also a band playing. Loud. Real loud. So loud in fact that the bar tender couldn't hear me ask if "there are any cask conditioned beers on tap"?

During a momentary break in the cover bands crap version of a crap song by a crap band, the bar keep heard my question and asked me what a 'cask conditioned beer' was... the shadow of lameness now loomed.

I ordered 'Abbys Oatmeal Stout'. Should have been named 'Shabby: we'll cross it out' (of our list of good beers that is)... it tasted like someone got a hold of 'powdered stout flavor crystals' and mixed them over gassed waters and didn't stir enough. Weak would be one word to describe it... another word: Anemic. For more words, go here:
http://thesaurus.reference.com/search?q=weak

With each sip of the stout I had hoped that I would get to the flavor layer or something, but it didn't happen... it stayed away from delivering any taste at all...

So, after one beer I bid goodbye to McKenzie and hurried back to Victory for some real brews, with my hat on...

Okay, I'll throw a little cold water.

Maybe I shouldn't review a pub after a visit on New Year's Eve (although I was there early enough that it wasn't all that crowded and the music hadn't started yet.) Maybe the downstairs game room is not where to enjoy ales, but instead to enjoy bubble-boy hockey and pinball, which I did. It felt like a church rec. room with metal post holding the ceiling up. Bathrooms were some of the poorest attended I've seen in an operation this size: wet floors, glasses everywhere, paper overflowing the trash.

The beers were very light tasting, right through the saison which is not one-fifth as good as DuPont. I appreciate the attempt at Belgian style; it just didn't happen. Anything my companion and I oredered was like a pale version of its namesake, not enough hop character here, not enough alcohol warmth there.

Service (again, on New Year's Eve) was more interested in talking to friends and regulars than actually serve. Jukebox was filled with middle of the road blue collar pop, rock, country. Next time, if there ever is, I'll try the upstairs.

Visited McKenzie in September 2011 while in Philly for a wedding; this is actually where the rehearsal dinner was held. Anyways, the service was slightly above average for a busy Friday night, but the beers here were not so good. I tried the Oatmeal Stout, English Brown, Wit, and Pale Ale and I'd say the average of all four combined couldn't be above 2.5. Either way, such goes life with a small joint like this. The food was fairly decent for a buffet-type spread, but I could get over how simply off the beers were. I guess some places stay in business because people don't know what the quality of what they are drinking. Maybe their lines were unclean or something was funky with their taps, but I just thought the beer was off. The bar area was a decent size and the dining room seating area was quite large as well. Worth a stop if you want some quality food, but maybe skip the beer unless your just looking to tick some stuff.

This review is based on my latest visit (7-13-07). I didn't think I would be back after the Dude was released from his duties. My wife and I were going to go to Firewaters but after being told I couldn't come in with out dress shoes on (are you f'n kidding me? it's attached to a Hooter's!) we headed back down the road to McKenzie's. As far atmosphere goes it's the same as always. The place is too big and open, imo. Dining area is to the left when you walk in and the bar area is to the right. Huge rectangular bar with a bunch of TVs hanging all around. There are tables and booths on the bar side, also. The waitress we had on this particular evening was very difficult to find. She would disappear for 15-20 minutes at a time and didn't clear any glasses or plates away. "I'll be right back to get them" she kept saying. You would have thought there were ten people sitting at our table. The beers seemed to have fallen off a bit, too. I was afraid that would happen. The IPA I had was good, but fairly average. The Honey Maibock I had was horrible. Tasted like I licked the underside of my lawnmower and then drank the gas that was left in the tank. Yuck. We did have an appetizer, which was barely average. I haven't had much luck with the food in the past for some reason. Not sure if I will ever be back.

Have been a here a few times, but recently visited last week for lunch. The beers regularly on tap are pretty tame. Obviously, this is mostly due to attracting as large a crowd as possible. The beer is good...found nothing unpleasant with any of the brews that I tried. The food, however, could use some improvement. Portions are big, but the taste is somewhat on the "eh" side. Service is fine. Atmosphere is a grey area- I've been here on a Friday night in the downstairs where it was so smokey I was disgusted to even sniff my clothes the next day. The upstairs has a circular bar- okay, but nothing that really attracted me all that much. Overall, not a bad place although I think it still lacks something. Maybe in the food or beer category. Basically, there's nothing that really draws me to this place.

Review from 12/18/2012: McKenzie Brewhouse in Glen Mills, PA was in a fork in the road and hard to pull into at night, but walking up and seeing the tanks made it worth the trip since I was in the area. It's a big place with a decent sized bar area, as well as separate dining areas so this could handle big crowds. Overall it looked clean.

Atmosphere was very laid back and casual with an after work crowd lingering on a Tuesday night. Music was playing, TV's all had games and ESPN on and it had an open feel to the place. Very basic sports bar decor, perfect to just sit at the bar alone and drink.

Bartender was OK with the personality of a stick, and didn't offer up any beer explanations and seemed to care less, but he was attentive so that's all I cared about since it's a brewpub and explains all the offerings in the menu.

Food was edible; had a bowl of gumbo that was decent and a crab-cake dinner, which both went well with the Application IPA. The gumbo was the highlight of the meal, so I would not make this a food destination. They had 6 standard beers on tap representing all of the basics and 2 seasonals, so the variety was decent. They also had a bottled winter old ale which sounded very interesting. The IPA I had was average in every way.

Overall it was better than sitting in my hotel room, but I'm doubtful I would come back here. The place was boring. The patrons all seemed boring, the bingo announcer was boring, the music was boring and I almost had to check to see if the bartender had a pulse. Beats going to a funeral or old age home, but not by much. Don't mean to offend anyone, but this is an honest assessment of my night at this place.

(Reviewers' note: I've volunteered as a brewer with Scott here, but I'm writing my review based on a recent visit, when I came with a friend for lunch here. Scott wasn't there, and we didn't go into the brewery to say hello to anyone, so we did not recieve any special treatment or other considerations. In this way, I think that this review could be considered as if it was written by any other patron, and nothing more).

McKenzies helps prove the old adage that you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover.

Pulling up to the building (which resides just north of the DE/PA border on Route 202), it looks like any other chain-restaurant, from the dated 90's font of the sign up front, to the almost cookie-cutter look of the building itself. All in all, it appears more like where you'd go for jalapeno poppers and other "fryolator" foods, not a beer mecca.

Inside, again, there's nothing particularly distinguishing about the dining room, except for the fact that it looks incredibly sterile - another restaurant with no soul of its own. I might have thought I had been standing in an Applebees or a TGI Fridays, if it wasn't for the top of the mash tun and brew kettle that I could see from one part of the dining room. The bar to the right has a lofted ceiling, which was nice, but we'll get there in a minute.

Service was not bad, but not spectacular either. We ordered a sampler (regular beers, and special one-offs), and, when it arrived, the young man serving us did make a nice attempt to explain each of the kinds of beers. He did, however, fall back on a few unoriginal chestnuts ("This is a stout, it's a lot like Guinness, if you've ever had that."), but I'll forgive him for the effort, and I'm sure, for someone trying their first flight of beers at their first brewpub, it would have been a nice intro. It should be noted that the beers in the sampler were not mind-blowing, but definately solid -- something has to pay the bills, I guess.

Food was not bad, and reasonably priced. The brie and crab bisque, I should note, is a must have. Delicious.

It took a while to get a check at the end of our meal, even with only three other tables in the dining room filled, but that's not a big deal.

After eating, we went into the bar area to get some bottles to take home. The bar is slightly more attractive, but again, built more to be a "party" bar, then a place you'd go for some serious beer appriciation. The bartender wasn't familiar with what varieties they had, but since I had previous knowledge of what varieties were in stock, I was able to give her the names of what I wanted. She was able to find all the bottles we needed, which was nice, but it should be noted that every one of them had to be 40 degrees at the warmest. Cold, cold, COLD beer, my friends.

I noted that all of the beers were in different coolers, along with other items. If they consolidated all of their bottles into one cooler (definately possible), and kept it at a more reasonable temperature, it would go a long way in terms of service. I can only imagine that drinking a 750 at the bar there, one would need to let it warm up for a good 30-45 minutes.

All in all, if you're within a two hour drive of this place, go for the bottled selections and maybe a little bisque. Luckily, with the majority of the good stuff in bottles, you don't have to worry about the lack of atmosphere here -- just take it home!

P.S.: If The Dude is here when you visit, do say hello to him. He is quite awesome, and incredibly friendly. A brewer's brewer.

A: Typical micro, nice and clean, bar, dining, and outdoor porch area. Big place, can easily accommodate 300 or so customers.

Q: Good brews, good food, nice place. Their oatmeal stout was especially good.

S: Service was average.

S: Selection was also average, about 20 different food choices and about 8 or so homebrew choices.

F: Food was good, above average for sure. Went nice with their brews.

V: It was a bit pricey I thought at about $20 for a meal and $6 a draft. Probably not bad for that area, but more than I'm accustomed to.

After visiting Iron Hill Brewing Co. in West Chester on December 1, my wife and I made the short trip over to McKenzie Brew House for some after-dinner brews. We pulled in to the huge parking lot, and it looked pretty busy. My wife commented that the building looked like a “chain” brewpub, which I think it is.

The atmosphere was just that – a huge, chain-type brewpub with lots of TVs strategically placed around the inside bar area. The bar itself was quite large (and full of people), so we found a nearby empty raised pub table and made ourselves comfortable. Overall, this brewpub was a bit too spacious and impersonal for me, but still comfortable.

After perusing the beer menu, which was at our table, we were greeted by a friendly female server who was also able to answer some questions about their beers. I decided to try their seasonal Funf Smoked Dopplebock on draught. I asked about the ABV%, and she wasn’t sure, but found out for me, so that was cool. By the way, it was 7.2%. Their dopplebock packs a pretty weighty malty aroma combined with roasted, nutty and barley overtones. Not much of a hop presence here, but it did have a tinge of alcohol. There was also a very strong smoky aroma, giving it more of the characteristics of a porter than a dopplebock. It was served in a 16-oz. pint glass with a single finger creamy light brown head that virtually disappeared. Not a bad selection. My wife had their Unicorn Amber Ale, which she did not care for.

I decided to try another selection, so I went with their East Kent IPA, another seasonal draught offering from McKenzie. I went with a 12-oz. glass this time. It came to me in a tapered beer glass and appeared somewhat hazy with a blonde/light amber color and nice carbonation. There was a moderate hoppy aroma with citrus notes, but not as strong as other IPAs I’ve had. It boasted a white frothy head that mostly diminished, but retained excellent lacing as the beer went down. This is an unfiltered IPA made with East Kent hops, as the name implies. At 67 IBUs, this offering had a decent spicy, biting hop flavor that stays with you at the back of your throat. It was definitely more spicy that fruity. Not a bad IPA, but not one of my favorites either.

Overall, I wouldn’t go out of my way to go there again, but would likely stop in if I was driving through. The beer was pretty good, but we didn’t have any food, so I can’t comment on that. The service was very good and the atmosphere was just a little too cookie cutter for me to make a special trip there. But I’d rather go to a chain that actually served decent craft brews that the typical American swill found at other restaurant chains.

Went to McK's with some BA's - first time at the place. Had a nice atmosphere - the kind of laid back attitude I like in a watering hole. Wood and other dark tones were much in evidence, giving a nice comfort feeling on entering the establishment. The quality of the beers was good, if unremarkable for the most part. (Perhaps that is the idea - to focus on the food...) Foodwise though, the jambalaya I had was very, very good - spiced just right, with a large portion to be sure. Service was slow at first - it took a while for someone to come over to the table to begin taking orders, but after that things picked up. Overall, a nice place to visit - I just wish the powers that be would let the brewer be more daring with his recipes/choice of beers.

This is an "imitation" of your run of the mill Friday's Bennigans, Applebee's etc. with one exception, Scott "The Dude" Morrison who is the brewer.

The atmosphere, menu, and ameities are standard to those described above. The food is passable - nothing to write home about. The service is average and the several times I've had the opportunity to dine there non of the servers knew spit about the beer. The bar-tenders are also underwhelming about the brews Scott turns out.

The Dude's specialty brews (especially the european inspired ones) are defintely top notch and have won medals at the GABF. Scott has finally been allowed by the owners to condition/age his brews appropriately.

I highly recoments the beer, but don't expect too much with a standard menu and uneducated servie staff.

I have been here a number of times but most recently about a week ago. The beers are usually average but easy to drink. I am usually here in the afternoon so the crowd is light and it is not noisy at all. They have about 8 TVs around the bar area. It is a large place with a bar area, separate dining area, downstairs bar with pool tables and other games and an outside deck during the Spring and Summer months. The food is usually pretty good and consistent. I do have to say Saison Vantour is excellent and I will always stop in when that is on tap. I believe this won gold at the 2009 GABF. Great beer.

I've only been once, but I'll give it a shot. Nothing stood out to me in any way other than the very friendly service. Selection, to me, was very basic. (light lager, pils, raspberry wheat). I did try a Belgian Pale Ale that was nowhere near spicey enough for me. Seemed watered down. I will be going back soon, so I'll re-review.

this place is a good half hour from my house

its a great place to stop at if you are going back to philly on your way home from de

right on 202

big place, giant bar in the middle. They have tvs and usually have the hip sports games on. Its non smoking inside (which I love)

the beer is very reasonable, I cant remember the names of any of the ones I have had off the top of my head but all of the ones I have had I have enjoyed. They have a very specific beer menu, including abv and gravity.

Like most Bops around, I feel like the crowd sways more towards people who could care less if they brew their own beer, they just wanna drink and or get drunk.

Occasionaly they must get people that are really interested, but this is a place that I usually go to by myself or with a lady friend, so I never really know anyone else there.

The head brewer has won some awards( I forget his name)

the food is very good, and ecclectic. I think last time I was there I had some calamari and kobe beef sliders

def worth checking out

The first thing we noticed as we got out of the vehicle and started towards the building was the smell. Wow, something smells really good. This place looks very clean, even the floors look like they are new or were just buffed. The walls are painted with a bright and lively arrangement of colors which works well with the lighting. Relevant and amusing pieces of artwork decorate the walls. There are many tables, booths and a "roundabout" rectangular fully stocked bar area that has many wide screen panel TV's hanging on the wall. The open kitchen is a nice touch. We are early today, it is slow and quiet but they are well staffed and this looks like a place that could get packed.

Their website is outdated. It advertised they were open for brunch at 10, we showed up at 10:30. Hostess greeted us and explained that since it hasn't been busy lately before 11 they don't do food until then. We were seated, placed our food order and it was served all before 11:00 anyway. Very fast service from the time the order was placed to delivery considering the kitchen supposedly wasn't open yet.

While we waited, we enjoyed a couple of beers, in particular an ipa in the 7% range. It was served in a 10oz glass and the hostess continued to seemingly pest us and explain why the serving size was so small. "You know, that's a very strong beer so we have to give you a small pour until you get some food in your stomach." Really? Are you serious? We did not even complain about the glassware and it seemed like she was making excuses. She was trying a little too hard be funny, if that's even what she was trying to do. Strangely enough, our waitor was constantly apologizing to us for the hostess' actions...strange.

Both a brunch menu and lunch menu were made available to us. A vast selection of food is there for the picking. We opted for Eggs Benedict on one plate and a burger and fries on the other. Both were cooked perfectly and were very enjoyable. The beer selection consisted of 6 of their staple brews and 2 seasonals, one of which was a dark wit that was barrel aged. The beer I tried was not all that good, it was nearly flat and tasted off.

Towards the end of our meal, more people started coming in and we were pretty much neglected. No offering by our waitor if we wanted coffee or anything else for that matter. The check just arrived at our table. I asked about a certain beer gift pack that I wanted to pick up for a friend. They adjusted the check, I paid and then they informed me that they were out of one of the beers in the gift pack. The hostess asked me which bottle I would like as a duplicate in the gift basket and before I could answer, she left again "to make a call." By the time it was all said and done, we waited for an extra half an hour after paying to get the gift basket with unlabeled bottles...

I fully intend on going back to this place to give them another shot outside of breakfast/brunch time. Perhaps the hostess and/or waitor were new. The food was excellent and priced very reasonably...the beer on the other hand was not.

After two trips to McKenzie Brew House (and six years of being a waiter) my review is ready. Here is my starter line: Any brewpub that can’t offer info about their beer right away is lame! Nobody in McK’s garb could answer my one question: “What are ALL the beers available?” McK's is a flower in a mud puddle (to quote Crane) beset by 202 N & S. Upon entering, the restaurant is to left, and the fun part is to the right. There is an enclave bar surrounded by drinking floor and a few scattered tables about with plenty 'o big t.v.s to watch sports. The table we picked rocked back 'n forth like a presidential voter campaigner. Downstairs is cooler, but it was closed this visit to snaggletooth some bottles. Overall, it's clean but needs a boys room in the basement. Could you take Mom here? Yes. It’s decent.

We care about the beer, eh? The brews are average at best on the sampler. The "dude" has extraordinary talent that is lost making light beer and other basic brews on the menu. His talents lie elsewhere. The Czech Pils is passable and the pale has some hops.

Service? What service? We had to inquire to four different barkeeps to finally get a beer menu. McK's waitstaff doesn't care about beer! They should!

Regular dinner and pub grub is the standard here. Don't expect to order a steak or lobster. McK's is burger, and appetizers. The nachos were ok, and this is from a nachos freek! The Thai pizza was good.

Last swigs: Don’t bother traveling here for the regular beer and food. Our only redeeming quality is when Scott Morrison bottles. Period! If you live more than 15 minutes away, save yourself a trip. Not that it is bad, just not special for beer lovers.

Stopped here several times because it is halfway between home and a regular work trip. Others have adequately mentioned the atmosphere. The bar gets a little loud and always appears filled with people on every night that I've stopped. In fact, last night there were even multiple tables of ladies enjoying brews on a random Thursday.

Quality: Has always been top notch. Their standards are as expected and the seasonals are interesting.
Service: Generally quick and affable. Even the regular waitresses have a good handle on the brews, which is always a plus.
Selection: Have about 5-6 regulars, my favorite of which is the IPA, and 3-4 seasonal brews. I think they usually have a guest, which was recently framboise.
Food: They serve pub grub, neither bad nor great. I'd suggest pulling a Gordon Ramsey and cutting back on the six pages of stuff and focusing on what they have, but we've never been disappointed.
Overall: Quality beer in what appears to me to be in the middle of nowhere. Even without the old fabled brewer, I've never been let down.

This is from a visit on May 13, 2006 to the Glen Mills (Chadd's Ford), PA location.

Atmosphere: The restaurant has a wide open bar and several diffferent dining sections, with tasteful decoration throughout. There is also a bar downstairs, although I did not venture there.

Quality: The quality of the restaurant was good. We were the first to arrive (at the 11:30AM opening) and were only there for a few rounds. Despite that (and a local graduation that would most likely swamp them later), the staff was friendly, even with my hellion 16 month old.

Service: Service was just above average, nothing bad to say about them (this was reflected with a good gratuity).

Selection: Five house beers and three seasonals gave me plenty to choose from. The beer ranged from pils to stouts, so there is something for everyone.

Food: We only ordered nachos with chicken, but damn they were good. You know how a great plate of nachos really brightens your mood? Well this plate fits that bill. My food rating is somewhat incomplete because we only ordered nachos, so I guess I have to go back.

In terms of value, 3 beers, a plate of nachos and a growler set us back $30, so I call that reasonable.

This McKenzie Brew House is located in either Glen Mills or Chadds Ford, PA. My GPS says Glen Mills while the McKenzie beer coaster says Chadds Ford. Either way it's located on 202. It's in an odd location. It's located in front of a fork in the road across from a Nissan dealership on the northbound side. It doesn't what side of the road you're on because they have an entrance on both sides. When you walk through the double doors, the dinning room is on the left and the bar area is on the right. I'm not sure of the size of the dinning room, but it looked pretty big from the door. The bar area is very open with harwood floors, a wooden square island bar, and a handful of tables surrounding it. There is a basement to this place, but that's only reserved for parties.

The service here was good. When I sat down at the bar, I got my beer right away, but the food menu is a whole another question. That took awhile to receive. I don't remember waiting too long for my food after I finally got to order off the food menu. The blonde hair waitresses here seemed to know their beer and they were always there when my glass was empty.

They have a nice sized food menu, but it looked like all of it was either bar food or your typical family restaurant food.I wasn't hungry at the time, so I ordered the chip and salsa. For $5 I recieved a big plate of multi colored tortilla chips and a saucer of homemade salsa. Just make sure you have a glass of water handy when you have any of their salsa.

For their beer selection, they offered 5 to 6 main stay taps that ranged from a Light Ale to a Red Ale and then up to a Stout. On the other side of the beer menu they had 4 to 5 seasonals which ranged from a Hefeweizen to an IPA. All the beers I had here were pretty good, especially this year round Black Lab Stout. I thought they had a nice range of beers. It alos seemed like all of their beers had kooky names to them. I can't remember off hand right now on what so of those names were.

In the end, this brewpub didn't knock my socks off, but it's still a pretty good brewpub that makes some really good beers. That's all that matters! Would I ever visit again? I would if I was in the area, but I wouldn't go too far out of my way to visit this McKenzie Brew House again.
