We serve Choice Black Angus beef which is hand cut daily on the premises. Whether you are looking for a full course meal, or just out for a cold beer and a great burger, you are sure to feel right at home. So, throw on your most comfortable jeans and join us for a great meal and lots of laughs.

Diner Reviews
  • "A step above the typical grill. Food is better than expected, service was memorable, ambiance was nice. No complaints here. I would recommend this jewel to everyone visiting Auburn/Lewiston."

  • "Although we found the restaurant to be a bit noisy, the food was worth the visit. The mussels were very good. I found the filet wrapped in bacon with garlic butter to be one of the best I have eaten out. It was nice that it came with green beans sautéed with almonds as well as a potato choice and a salad. The desert are plentiful servings for sharing and delicious. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. It seemed to be a local favorite(or perhaps a well kept secret) - mostly Maine plates in the lot. Make a reservation."

  • "Used open table to make a reservation for our anniversary dinner and waited only two minutes to sit at our table. Our server was friendly and able to answer questions. Service was quick and the food was amazing. We enjoyed the B.B.Bullets for an app and the Blue cheese crusted short ribs over pasta was delicious. We will be back and will bring our kiddos. The fast service and atmosphere is exactly what we need when dining out with our three year old."

  • "My first visit to Macs in over two years. Quite disappointed overall. The lobster roll, while tasty, was well short of the two lobsters advertised. The steak tips were the worst I have ever had at any restaurant. They were tough and tasteless. I sent them back and ordered a mini-mac that arrived 15 minutes after everyone at my table was done eating. The mini-mac was very good. I was charged full price for my meal despite the unacceptable tips and inconvenience. The atmosphere was that of a very loud sports bar. Our waitress was the best part of the whole experience. I will not be returning to eat there and if the food quality doesn't improve, Macs will not survive. There are many better options out there at better prices."

  • "We visit Mac's Grill on a regular basis. The ingredients in their dishes are always fresh, the meals are flavorful and the wait staff is attentive to their customers. What else could you want in a good restaurant? We give them an A Plus!"

  • "We sat in the new addition and the energy was great. Our server made the night so enjoyable. She was fun, energetic and extremely knowledgeable of everything on the menu, from the cuts of beef to the bar libations. The food was also fantastic. We all had something different and it was all cooked to perfection. Go, enjoy....................you won't regret it!!!"

  • "Chairs are hard (for us old folks); restaurant is noisy (again, us old folks have a hard time hearing with background noise); food is excellent; menu is varied--something for everyone, though not a large selection for vegetarians (the grilled veggie wrap was very tasty); wait staff very accommodating to tastes, offering sides in place of fries. You can pay a lot or a little. Good place for a gang to go have a great time!"

  • "Food was excellent and offered a little something for everyone. They also had a fairly good size beer selection, in addition to the plain ol' domestic standards. The staff was very friendly. No complaints here!!"

  • "Always a hit! I have tried many menu items and have never been disappointed. The Mac's Filet is one of my favorite items. Melt in your mouth tender and always cooked to perfection. Highly recommend the onion rings for an appetizer and the French Onion Soup. My husband can't get over the burgers. You will thoroughly enjoy Mac's Grille."

  • "Wanting a smaller portion, I got the 6 oz. sirloin, medium well. It arrived looking like a piece of shoe leather. It took a while to get the server back to the table, but to her credit when she saw the steak she knew it was overcooked. But rather than taking the whole plate, she just took the meat. It took quite a while to get a replacement, and by that time, the rest of the food on the plate (mashed potatoes and corn) was cold. When the new steak arrived, again it was an odd cut - half was of appropriate thickness to be cooked properly, but the other half was thin and therefore cooked like leather. My Mom ordered the prime rib sandwich, but it was also overcooked. I did not get charged for my steak which was a nice gesture. "

  • "Mac's is a great neighborhood restaurant. It has wonderful food, great ambiance, and great service. We were a large group and the staff got everything right -- they even had to deal with 2 young children. The steaks are always so tender, the fries are the best around, and the buffalo chips top the scale for the best appetizer. The newly expanded area is great -- a large bar with a variety of choices and big screen television. This place has something for everyone."

  • "We had not been to Macs for some time. And, thought we would spend an early valentine there. We were craving ribs. So we went with high expectations. We were quite disappointed. The service was only ok and we remembered it to be great. The food was not acceptable. One diner's ribs were only fat...and the explanation was that it can happen with ribs. One diners sweet potato fries were cold. The bread was only passable. We mentioned all this to our wait staff and to the manager?, but was told that they were short of staff. We will not return."

  • "We made reservations at Mac's online, and I'm glad we did! There were 4 of us wanting to eat at prime time. It's a nice homey place, kind of like the inside of a log cabin. Lots of locals go there, so the place seemed to die down around 8. Casual atmosphere and kind of noisy, but it just made for a fun evening. Very good steaks at a fair price. (it's not cheap, but it's certainly not as pricey as some places)"

  • "The food was great, the service was ok (very busy and had to wait for meal to arrive). Loved the new room as there is more room and you can talk without feeling like everyone around you is listening. Also, it is aesthetically pleasing."

  • "Although seating regardless of reservations was delayed, it was a short while and not problematic. Food was great; service very good; ambiance fine. A little crowded with seating, but it was a Saturday evening at "rush hour." Always enjoy the food and dinner out with family, friends, or "just the two of us" at Mac's. Thank you."

Food was fantastic; wine was delicious; staff was interactive and very patient; but most of all, meeting friends and being able to hear our conversation was the best. I always enjoy the food when I go to Mac's Grill, and I've never met a person who hasn't been there without wanting to go back. Nice job! Great food! Thank you."
