MacKenzies

Location: 4151 LakeShore Road.  Hamburg, NY  14075

Phone:716 627-6792

Price: $  9.99

Ambiance: This is a quaint family run restaurant with two dinning rooms separated by a mid size bar area.  The view of Lake Erie is delightful and watching the sun set is a nice bonus.  The decor is very well done and comfortable.  The general "feel" of the restaurant is inviting.

Service: The service was prompt and friendly.  We arrived at about  7:30 and had about a 20 minute wait.  This wait time is about average for most places we have gone.    We went to the bar and enjoyed a drink at a nice bistro table with a great view of the lake.   Our waitress was friendly and took our orders efficiently.  She told us about the specials and highlights of the menu.

Food: We were offered bread and butter while we waited for our dinner.  At this time we knew we would not be having the traditional slice of Rye bread with our fish.    Our meals arrived very quickly.  I chose to have seasoned fries and my husband had regular fries.  Our fish look like it was breaded to be but when I cut into I realized it was battered.  It was very crispy, moist and very very tender.  It was excellent.    The fries were very hot and crispy too.  We had coleslaw and it was very good.  There was no potato salad or macaroni salad.

Recommendation: I would recommend going to MacKenzies for a fish fry.

Ambiance: This is a older building that was reminiscent of circa 1950.  It appeared to attract a older crowd and it was quaint.

Service: Friendly and there was no wait for a table.  Definitely a plus on a Friday night in Buffalo.

Food: The fish fry was excellent.  The fish was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.  It came with coleslaw, macaroni salad, french fries, and a slice of rye bread.
