MacKenzie River Grill & Pub, Columbus, Ohio
Imagine spending an afternoon in the outdoors, fly fishing, hiking, kayaking, or skiing, and then strolling into a picturesque eatery with the look and feel of a Montana ski lodge, and settling down to have an afternoon drink at the bar complete with a frosty rail for your glass. It sounds like the perfect vacation spot, except that it’s nestled inside the Polaris shopping area north of Columbus, Ohio.
MacKenzie River Grill & Pub serves handcrafted pizzas with house-made sauces and fresh vegetables, alongside burgers, meatloaf, flatbreads, salads, and more!
The gourmet pizzas are made to order with fresh, flavorful toppings on the original, thin, or gluten-free crust. The namesake, MacKenzie River, is a tasty combination of olive oil and garlic, spinach, roasted zucchini, mushrooms, tomatoes and mozzarella, dusted with feta. On the lighter side of the pizza-calorie spectrum, it’ll leave you feeling satisfied without feeling cheated.
The MacKenzie Alfredo is almost too pretty to eat with its seasoned chicken, prosciutto, tomatoes, and broccoli, tossed with alfredo, penne, and parmesan. The home-style MacKenzie Meatloaf comes complete with bacon, cheddar, and a sweet and smoky glaze, topped with fried onions and served with mashed potatoes and a veggie side.
There are plenty of non-MacKenzie named items on the menu as well that are equally tantalizing, including the starters, salads, soups, and flatbreads.
Happy hour is from 3-6 PM Monday through Friday and features 75-cent wings, $3.50 craft pints, $2.50 Yuengling Pints, $1-off glasses of wine, and $3 well drinks.
New to MacKenzie River in August 2018, Sporcle Live Trivia kicks off two games of general-knowledge trivia right after happy hour every Monday at 6:30 PM.
MacKenzie River is the place to check out after your next Polaris shopping spree. We’ll save a seat for you at the bar!
