We actually went for dinner to Mack's Golden Pheasant because we had read all of the reviews that talked about the German food, including spaetzle. What we didn't count on was that a lot of the German specials were for Oktoberfest and not in November. Located on North Ave., just west of 83, it is easily reached from eastbound North Ave. or southbound on Rt. 83. There is plenty of off-street parking. We were seated by the fireplace in the dining room which was really nice. The interior decor is that of a German-Austrian chalet or a supper club in northern Wisconsin. The staff was very friendly. When we were seated, they brought us a great tasting loaf of warm bread and butter that was easily spreadable. We went with the breaded pork tenderloin which is a Bohemian favorite and was served with red cabbage & mashed potatoes. Our second entree was the Austrian wiener schnitzel which were two large cutlets of veal lightly breaded & sautéed until golden. They were served with bread dumplings & sauerkraut. It certainly was a nice touch that they brought a gravy boat to the table for extra gravy on both entrees. Each of the entrees came with soup and salad, so we each chose the baked French onion soup and a salad. We left room for dessert and decided to split the homemade apple strudel with a scoop of ice cream.and dusted with powdered sugar. Everything tasted great. The portions were ample. The prices were reasonable. Our server, Evelyn S., was very personable and very efficient. Even the busboy was friendly and efficiently helped her, as well. We will certainly go back.

Felt like a real local bar with a cozy environment. The menu was 50% German/ Central Europe and 50% All American. Highly recommended, not too expensive not too fancy, but cozy, especially the bar area.

I love the food at this place! It reminds me of childhood. Schnitzel is the best and the desserts are all made in house. The atmosphere is old and tired but the people and food make up for it. Even their hamburgers are the best. If you're in the mood for good food and a relaxed dining experience you will love Mack's!

I had the opportunity to have brunch today at Mack’s Golden Pheasant. It was amazing it had everything from Ribs & Chicken, Mac & Cheese, Breaded Pork Tenderloin and Dumplings, Biscuits and Gravy. Cooked to Order Waffles, Omelettes, Pacakes and French Toast.

Then there is the treat table with homemade Kolachky, Chocolate cake, Red Velvet cake and a new feature the chocolate fountain.

So if brunch is one of your favorite things to do on Sunday Mornings then you have to stop in to Mack’s Golden Pheasant the best brunch I have had and in the western suburbs. Not to mention after 11 a.m. you can enjoy Mimosas with your meals as well.

Mack’s is the best family owned restaurant around and the best place to bring your family and friends for dinner. Just for drinks at the Bar great service, great atmosphere, very welcoming.

Mack's Friday night fish fry is one of the best around. The ambience of an "old school" dinner club is warm and relaxing. The service is great and they always keep your plate full of fish.
