Diner Reviews
  • "Our pasta dinners were really great -- my wife had the Chicken with creole sauce and I had the linguini with Florida rock shrimp in a tomato sauce. Tammy did a great job as our wait staff. We will be back!"

  • "Nicole's service was perfect; she even ordered our drinks for us before we were seated! My wife had her favorite pasta dish with Cajun sauce and I had the Fisherman's Wharf linguini . A great dinner date!"

  • "We stop at Mac's whenever we are in the area and have never been disappointed. The food and service are excellent. We love all the seafood choices and Cajun touches. Any special that is offered is worth trying as the menu is very creative. This restaurant is a gem!"

  • "My wife and I had a great dinner experience Saturday after church services! She had her favorite pasta dish with lobster and shrimp and I had a great sirloin steak with a blue cheese sauce on top of the fillet. Nicole's service was outstanding. Thanks Mac's!"

  • "Dinner has been delicious every time we have eaten there. From appetizers to entrees to desserts - all very good."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "We really enjoyed our evening. We were a party of four couples who hadn't seen each other in quite awhile. We had a fantastic meal and we weren't rushed out. We were able to sit and visit for as long as we wanted. The food was excellent and so was the service. We're already planning our next get together there!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We had a Friday night meal of Salmon and Shrimp pasta and the deep fried cod fish dinner. The pasta dish was great (but my wife prefers to have the shrimp tails removed in the cooking process) and my fish dinner was OK -- the breading for the cod was soggy. Service by Tammy was excellent."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Nicole did a great job serving us. I had the Michigan Chicken which was perfect as always and my wife's Lobster pasta dish was also outstanding. It was a bit cold sitting in the booth closest to the entrance door."

    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Both our dinners were outstanding -- Diana had the Buffalo Shrimp and I had the Cajun Pasta dish. Nicole's service was perfect and we enjoyed the opportunity to chat with both Gus and Wally."

  • "My husband, best friend, and I dined on Saturday, 3/1 in the evening in celebration of my 59th birthday. It was the first time we've been there. Our food was really awesome. Our server were amazing. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and very attentive. We have only one negative comment, but's an important one. This venue does not have a handicap accessible restroom. All of the restrooms, including that of the employees, are located in the lower level which is only accessible via stairs. For us, this meant that I had to go outside the restaurant and into another business nearby and beg to use their facilities - on my birthday."

  • "My wife had the pasta and chicken dish with cajun sauce. I had the sirloin steak and both dishes were perfectly prepared and served. Nicholas did a nice job given he is relatively new to Mac's."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Nicole's service was perfect; we were well taken care of and enjoyed having Wally stop by our table. We celebrated my wife's birthday and had a great time. Diana had the Lobster pasta dish with Cajun sauce and I had the linguini Fisherman's style. Had a great time!"

    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We went on Valentines Day and it was great. I wanted something that was on the online menu but was taken off the paper menu. The manager came over and informed me I could get it. It was delicious. I didn't expect that and was planning on getting another meal, but I was able to get what I wanted!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "A busy night is not a great excuse for fair service and so-so food, but it no doubt contributed to our experience. Mac's has been highly recommended to us in the past so we gave it a try. SERVICE: Waitstaff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Alcohol selections are okay but nothing to write home about. Service was very slow, but the place was absolutely packed for a special holiday. It took 20 min to get drinks (besides water) and bread. But service improved through the evening. FOOD: Halibut dish with light lobster sauce was dry on margins and could have used a true sauce reduction. Mushrooms were flavorful. Blackened swordfish steak was spicy with a nice searing. The fish was a bit dry for my taste."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My husband and I dined here for Valentine's Day. The food was wonderful. We were disappointed in one thing: the menu stated that the featured martinis were half off. I do believe we paid full price for the two we had. Otherwise, we had quite an enjoyable experience and will probably return at some point."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We had a great time with a "light" dinner of soup, salad and Buffalo Shrimp and the Sea Scallops in a truffle cream sauce. We also had w wonderful experience because of our wait staff person Nicole. She did a really great job!"
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Nicely done the renovation.Food and service was very good. Little expensive, but you only go there once in a while, so it's okay. We went there on a Saturday night and the place was packed. Since we had a reservation, it only took 5 min. to get a table."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Really love the new decor and the renovations recently made. Our food was perfectly prepared and served. Anna did a great job with the heavy customer load with the recent reopening."

  • "Our meals were perfectly prepared. My sirloin steak was as requested (Med rare) and my wife's Chicken pasta dish were a joy do eat. Larry's service was perfect considering he was handling a party of 12 next to our booth! Well done Mac's!"
    Dined on 1/11/2014

  • "We meet here every year with my parents who have mobility and hearing issues and it is their favorite spot. The food was great and our server was very patient."
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "Service was good, but two of our meals were over cooked (lobster tails and steak). Quality of ingredients was good, but preparation should improve for the price."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "Our dinners were perfectly prepared -- my wife's pasta dish had lots of cream sauce and my shrimp scampi was wonderful."
    Dined on 12/8/2013
  • "My husband and I visited Mac's early on a Friday night. The restaurant was already half full! We took that as a good sign. Our waiter, Jason, was great. Very friendly and informative. I had their specialty... The pan seared cod over lobster mashed potatoes. It was amazing. My husband had the shrimp and chicken creole. It was just ok. Both dishes could have been a bit warmer. Diners should be aware that happy hour pricing and free mussels apply ONLY in the bar area. We sat about five feet outside the bar in the main dining room and were denied happy hour pricing."

  • "We had great service, the food was awesome, best Scottish salmon I have had anywhere? the raw oysters were very good. I have food allergies and they accommodated me on every account."
    Dined on 11/29/2013

  • "We had a great late lunch. Service was perfect and waiter gave us plenty of time to catch up with an old friend. My pasta dish with baby clams and white cream sauce was wonderful. The burger and barbecued shrimp were also delightful. Thanks."
    Dined on 11/12/2013
  • "They have awesome gumbo. We had the crab cake app. it was canned crab and that has a funny flavor to me. We also ordered the sword fish steak and they did not ask how we wanted it cooked which was odd.. it came out WELL done. So that was a complete bummer. I ordered the sampler and it had over done shrimp that were hard and rubbery and the scallops too were over done. I also ordered a "spicy" bloody marry. It was not spicy at all, it was just made with pepper vodka. I saw no seasonings in the bloody marry at all. I felt it was just plain tomato juice or maybe clamato. All in all I was very let down by the food. I would no go back. We ordered nothing fried.. and maybe they do fried food very well."
