How would you rate PepperSoup?
We enjoyed our meal and I enjoyed the beer selection, however I give a one star rating due to the slow service we received. If you have some time on your hands and don't mind waiting around, this place would be ok.
Had a good time and a Philly Cheese Steak. Interesting place.
Went here for the first time on a Friday night recently, with some friends. Our server was a lot of fun. Beers aren't overpriced. The burgers are GREAT! But call ahead and make sure that the upstairs ping-pong is open if that is a big draw- they sometimes close it when it's not busy.
Good prices good food and great bartender
If this place had decent happy hour food i would come again. The food selection consists of popcorn, pretzels, and chips.
Always have great beer and (beer) knowledgeable staff. Nice patio in the back. Good (recently added) bar food.
Went here last night with a group visiting from out of town and it was amazing. Not only was our server really nice but the food was amazing. Everything was cooked to order and all 25 of us ate at the same time. Will definitely be going back and recommending to my friends.
While many servers and cooks here are great people, blonde girl server that puts her hair up is incredibly and relentlessly racist. Completely singled out the black guy we were hanging out with solely because he asked someone on the back porch for a cigarette. I did the same thing a second later and of course being white there was no issue whatsoever. Good place but please consider your staffs respect for all races when hiring, out of control lack of discretion.
Finished a bachelor party night out here and had the Mack's Cuban sandwich. It was the best sandwich I've had in years. I will be definitely returning for the great service, the chill atmosphere and the amazing food.
Great downtown business. Love the rooftop bocce ball. It's fun to come here for big soccer games too. Don't expect a cozy Irish pub though
Great bar, friendly staff, and ping pong. I always have a good time!
Tons of local beer and a great menu. Perfect for before events downtown.
This down to Earth bar is full of a wide variety of craft beer, scotch whiskey and great people. It has an diverse mix of selection and no pretentiousness. If you like drinking good beer and playing big buck hunter in HD go to MACs.
Great atmosphere and fun waiters and bartenders. A good place to meet up for a few beers after work. Good selection of beers too.
I love the bartenders. They're great. I wonder if any of them play roller derby.
Great bar food, good prices. The specials are always revolving, so it's always something new to try. Typical beer selection. Usually the tap lines are dirty and the beer tastes crappy. The toilets smell and look like they haven't been cleaned in ages, but this place is catering to locals, not tourists.
Great beer list. Nivce place to hang before a show at First Ave.
We to a show next door at the Orpheum. Decided after to stop and get a bite. We were pleasantly surprised! Waitress and food were great! She said they smoke their own meats. Smoked pork was very good!
Visiting Minneapolis stopped by the pub for a burger All I can say is WOW, then I took a few coworkers (11 of us) for drinks and dinner, everyone of my coworkers couldn't believe how awesome the food was. See you again Macenzie
3.5 Atmosphere was ok. Drink selection was good, bartender was friendly and informative. Would try again and hope for a more festive atmosphere.
Cool Scottish vibe in a nice pub. Friendly staff and a nice back deck.
Drinks were great, service was good despite being busy after the Timberwolves game.
Convenient location for Orpheum pre-show drinks and generally good staff but a couple jerks taints the experience
Really good food and beer selection.
Easily the greatest Browns bar on earth. Best flat bread, period.
Excellent food and reasonable prices!
Some of the best food downtown Minneapolis. Awesome staff and the prices for booze/food are the working persons dream.
Best tap selection in downtown! Seriously. George curates the rotating taps, and his beer knowledge is Yoda-worthy. They have a full menu with really decent food, friendly, competent, unpretentious staff. It's even family friendly.
Great pub, delicious food.
However, I had noticed that it seemed a little lax in there and sure enough I became very ill after eating here one night. I'd still eat here again but I think no matter how comfortable and cool the staff can become with Paris-- they should always keep food safety standards.
This is definitely a nice place to chill. They got solid service, good prices and darts.
Easily the chillest place downtown. It's a nice place to get a little variety down here.
Good food, nice staff, decent prices. Creative specials to boot.
I love this place. The food bar food is great, staff is awesome, great price for downtown. I always say yes whenever my friends suggest Mackenzie.
Can always count on the food being great the prices are great the staff is great I love coming here
We'd never really noticed this place until last weekend so we stopped for a drink and a snack. Service at the table was really slow, but the smoked wings TOTALLY made up for that. We went with the jerk dry rub and quickly wished we ordered 12 instead of 6. The meat falls right off the bone. Well priced menu and looking forward to trying more of their food!
Ah MacKenzie's. When I worked at Solera, this was the place to go. Many a night was spent sitting in a bar stool talking to the bartender and the staff and complaining about work and life. Their beer selection is top-notch and the food is pretty good too. Derek the bartender is always super friendly and always has a good recommendation for you as soon as you sit down. The prices are fair and the atmosphere is good. The place is always clean and the employees seem to have a good time working there. If I could give six stars to MacKenzie's I totally would. Keep up the good work and I will continue showing up after every shift!
Good selection of beer, good staff too. Nice rotation of food specials
Great food! Amazing service! Great beer! And a wonderful patio to drink said beer on.
Staff was very nice and the ambience was supremely comfortable. Food was very good I highly recommend the poutine.
Discovered this place walking downtown Minneapolis nice Scottish style pub with lots of drink options stop on in and this nice quaint pub.
The food was really goo and the beer selection eas even better. We went rhere before a play at the Orpheum, Mackenzie's had several special the reflected what was currently play and we thought that was cool.
Been going for the last five years. Good keeps getting better. Drinks and service are great.
Great bar, great staff, great tacos! And Daryl is a cook here so that's awesome! Check this place out for sure!
I go there all the time for their top notch RJs. A+++++ best spread in town
I went to Minneapolis on a spur of the moment trip with nothing but a back pack and basically a toothbrush and credit card. Stumbled on to this gem with a great selection of great beers and absolutely amazing food. Seriously, what a great stop for a meal, drink and and friendly staff. Will definitively so back here on my next visit to to Minneapolis. Cheers.
best service by crystal. she really knows how to work with a table to get food and drinks out quickly in a pleasant way without sacrificing customer engagement. i had a great sandwich and fries, as did our other friends. perfect lication next to orpheum theatre, near many venues including brave new workshop - fabulous entertainment with the danger committee (must see).
Definitely a decent bar. There is some riffraff that spills over from the bus station and homeless shelter, but they keep it mostly under control. Nice smoking area out back.
My wife and I stop in here whenever we are in the area. Love this spot! Great drinks and fantastic service.
Great bar, delicious food, amazing beer selection, welcoming patio and an incredible staff.
Great beer selection. Great food. Great service.
The best chicken wings in the Cities! Smoke chicken wings fall of the bone! Amazing! Great beer selection.
Nice place to get a beer and play some Golden Tee.
Great every time we go! Awesome staff and delicious food. If you're looking for a bar downtown thats popular but not too crowded, this would be the place!
great food, beer selection, and atmosphere. Love the staff, pricing is good for downtown. BBQ wings are a house specialty
The beers are good selection ans some nights have music if I recall right solid good restaurant too
Friendly staff. Food was hot and quite good. Very much surprised. Will definitely visit again when in the area.
Great place to visit before or after show at the Orpheum. We had the Cuban with tots & a couple of beers.
Maggie was great!
Dry rub wings and soft pretzels and a full bar brought to you by a very attentive staff. Right next door to Orpheum Theatre. 5☆'s
George was great! Food was amazing as well! Will make this a must stop every time we're in town!
Nice little spot to get a drink or some cheese curds late at night or before the night starts. Drink prices are super reasonable and the food is good staff is pretty friendly and it's always a good time. The food is really good you should definitely try it
Very convenient for a quick bite bite before a show. Staff was friendly & efficient.
Fun place to grab a drink ans play darts. Staff is not very friendly but a good atmosphere
Was there by myself... Nice laid back vibe ( on that day at least ) .
Loved their beers.
The wings with the dry rub and blue cheese dip was heavenly.
So, this place is one of those great corner bars. In years past, the food has been phoned-in. As of the past year, they have employed a chef to completely revitalize the menu and it shows. Come in and try their taco of the month. Or the flatbread of the month. They are changing the menu often and seasonally and it's extremely fun and delicious to come in and see what's new.
Met a friend for drinks and enjoyed the ambience as well as the beer selection. It's the kind of bar I could get used to and go often if I lived near there.
Very friendly! Good food, good service. Enjoyed ourselves.
Stopped in after show at the Orpheum. Great friendly service. Great beer selection and delicious appetizers. Will definitely be back!
Close to the theaters, really good food and good service. Great place to go before and after a show.
We LOVE this place! We go here before all of our shows at the Orpheum. The service is good and the food is great! Some of the best fries I've ever had and the Caribbean street tacos are to die for. Definitely worth a visit!
If you believe in hope, or the purity of the human spirit then this is the place for you. Love is just a series of electrical and chemical reactions. But this place makes you FEEL again. If you are wanting for REAL human interaction and a belief in what it means to be human, come join the people at Mackenzie's, we are waiting for you...
Best wings in Minneapolis period. Smoked, great options. Bigger juicy wings. For the rest of the place it's pretty standard bar. They have pinball, so extra points for that.
This is our go to restaurant in Minneapolis whenever we take a show to the Orpheum theatre. Their food rocks! !!! They understand the time pressures of "showbiz" and go the extra mile for all of us. Very much worth the stop highly recommended!
Cute little place. Excellent service. The BEST smoked wings! All their other food we've tried has also been really good! But, man, those wings...
Would like to see this place when it's packed. Atmosphere is typical pub; enjoyed the Scottish motif. Kitchen is super small. Food is typical pub; menu not especially creative, but food is good. Scottish ale quite good.
Good food with great weekly specials. Stopped in before a comedy show at the State Theater and it wasn't too busy. One star off as the bathrooms could use a little work.
My favorite place downtown. Hands down the perfect place to spend your time. Especially in the Summer. The back deck has plenty of space. The taps are solid. This gastro pub holds a special place in my heart. And the food is excellent.
They had pinball and Golden Tee! Food was super tasty - we had the special Thai peanut burger and the gouda burger. Service was awesome - they're cooler than me but not stuck up about it.
The service (Chris) and everything about this place was fantastic. One of the best, if not the best, service, food, and drink places I’ve been! Highly recommend.
Was in town for a Sox/Twins game and I stopped in for a drink after dinner. Great staff, great beer selection, great atmosphere. I would recommend to others, and come back my next time through.
Had a nice drop in on a hot day. Patio is ok but being downtown, I personally prefer a rooftop as a patio like this one feels a bit squished between tall buildings, and you don't really have a view.
Bar tender was nice.
Our favorite place before concerts. Decent bar food, good drinks, fair prices. Casual joint.
Great service with a "rolled up sleeves" atmosphere. Great selection of libations and centrally located to all the hospitality and entertainment the city has to offer.
This is has now become MY PLACE! It's not crowded, great service and food better tasting then any reaturant I've ever eaten at. Beef was super fresh and tasty. Amazing drinks.
One of my downtown favorites. The patio is divine. Scotch eggs and smoked wings with a neighborhood vibe.
Our server was great! Friendly and prompt and fun. We played darts and had some fun drinks before the Twins game. We were especially happy that it was kid friendly. We had a 7 year old with us for the game so it was a great place to hang out. An easy walk to Target Field and our hotel.
They have an awesome happy hour, and I recently found our about their early Friday special. The staff are great, and so is the food.
Stephen is a great server. This place is a classic bar with a option to enjoy your stogie with a good brew. Looks like a decent menu too. Excellent music. Cool people.
Employees are good about checking on patrons. Not a hole in the wall. Grab a drink or two before going to the orpheum for whatever show they've got. Nice back patio
Even if it's packed; you'll get proper professional service at this joint. Try the menu. Great belly fodder.
Food is good. Service is a bit slow. Atmosphere is good fun.
Great laid back bar...plus it's a Browns safe place 😁
Wandered in on a weeknight for a late dinner and stumbled upon a new favorite spot. Beer selection was great and our server made solid recommendations on both beer and food. The real shining gem was their food. Everything is made in house and all four of us loved both the appetizers and our entrees. The poutine gravy is to die for. The sloppy Jose pulled chicken sandwich was unique, tender and flavorful. Smoked wings, fried chicken sandwich and Thai flatbread were also outstanding. The only smudges on our experience were: 1) the server forgot to enter one entree so everyone else in the party was finished eating by the time that food arrived and 2) one of the bartenders kept walking into the entryway of the bar to vape, leaving a fog of vape smoke for everyone to walk through. However, the food made up for the service blunders. Two in our party actually went back the next day for the fried chicken and mashed potatoes and they also loved that! Will be going back.
One of the few chill yet high quality bars left downtown. I REALLY hope the don't sell the space for condos like most other cool bars have done! Love this place!
The food was really good. I had the Caribbean pork Street tacos and my partner had the gyros with the fancy fries. The fries were delicious and had a great garlic flavor, maybe a little more parmesan and it would have been perfect. The Caribbean pork tacos had a wonder sweet and spicy flavor that was amazing. The prices were great! The wait staff were very friendly and knowledgable. Loved this place and will absolutely visit again
This spot is fantastic and roomy, the food was delightful and the prices were very economical. rapidly, efficient service and very amiable staff members. Will definitely recommend this restaurant.
Love the patio, but didn't feel safe during covid because it seemed like too many people were seated too close.
Great service and a friendly staff. A great place to grab a drink, a bite to eat, and watch the game.
Bar food and the atmosphere at this location is super good. Service is always awesome even when they have a full house. I had a cousin come into town and asked me to take him back here.
Good food. Great staff!
This little counter-service restaurant has a simple format with big flavor menu items! I had never eaten West African food before, so I asked the young boy...read this and 13 more
