- Good for the areaHew06Dined on 8/20/2014We had high hopes that this would be a great restaurant find that we could use in lieu of having to drive into Ann Arbor to find an all around quality dining experiece. The food at Mac's was ok, but if you are from the coast and/or are use to high quality seafood you will be disappointed. Our server also put us off a bit with her chatter that just didnt seem sincere. The icing on the cake or I should say the whipped cream on the key lime pie tasted like Redi-whip. Really? Allegedly the key lime pie was made there at the restaurant, so why not real whipped cream? And then when the server came by she said "it tastes like real key lime pie doesnt it?"....huh?I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great for seafoodDickFDined on 5/23/2014We have been going to Macs for over a decade because they prove over and over that this is a place to drive to if you want to casually relax and have a great meal. The staff is great, the food is great, the ambiance is casual - just a great restaurant nestled in the town of Saline, Michigan.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice but boringOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 5/11/2014Pretty bland food. Also, when I tried to order the salmon, they said I could only order it with a gross maple glaze. Refused to serve it to me without the glaze. Really?
- Good food but.....OpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 5/11/2014We came here for a Mother's Day lunch. We were seated right away, and the waitress was attentive. The problem came with getting our food. It took almost and hour for the main courses to come to our table. I understand that it may have been busy, but it shouldn't have been any busier that a normal Friday night. It doesn't help that I saw the head chef strolling around the dining area while we are sitting, waiting for our food to arrive. I gave this restaurant a yes for recommendation because they do have very good food, but I'm I won't be making reservations here again for Mother's or Father's Day.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- WildbillVIPDined on 5/4/2014My wife and I had a good dining experience on Sunday, May 4th. Not as good as in the past; the quality seems to slip a bit on Sundays for some reason. My wife's Chicken pasta meal was only warm when served and not as spicy as in the past. My Lobster salad was really good; especially the sherry vinegaritte dressing. Tammy's service was excellent! We'll be backSpecial Features:
