Haven’t been here in about 5 years. Overall, a satisfying experience. I will admit a bit of disappointment in the limited menu and wine list. I would have expected a few “Fresh Catch “ options from a restaurant with a seafood theme. My wife had the crab cakes;I had the New Orleans shrimp. Both were excellent. Our server did a great job considering he was also taking care of a party of 16-20 simultaneously.

My wife and I both ordered the walleye. Mine was the deep fried special and my wife's fish was broiled. Both were excellent! We don't ever remember having a bad meal at Mac's.

Very friendly owner and staff. I am partial because they cook the lake perch exactly as I love them (deep fried with a light crispy batter, served hot), so it is my go-to meal here. My wife is fond of the salmon. We will make it a habit to return.

From the moment we were seated, the service was excellent and very helpful recommendations were made to help us choose delicious appetizers with our drinks to start. After reviewing the menu, we chose Lake Perch, the Shrimp with Red Beans and Rice, and also the fresh Walleye. All were prepared perfectly and service was excellent. We can’t wait to go again and try other items on the menu.

Crab cake appetizer was very good except there was very little of the red sauce. The dish needed a small container of remoulade for the crab cake. The calamari was just OK. Nothing special and kinda chewy! The maple glazed Salmon was good and the other two dishes,linguine and shrimp, were average. Sweet potato fries were excellent. The best anywhere we’ve been! Service was very good this time. However, during our previous visit the server was rude, food was served cold, wrong wine, etc... not even the manger could correct it. We really do love Mac’s. But they are so inconsistent! You can’t depend on the quality or service. Most times we eat at the bar which helps with both!

My wife and I had a reservation for Valentines day. They were out of both items we ordered and forgot our coleslaw. Some of the tables around us were complaining about how long it took for their food. The table next to us waited an hour for pasta.

I'd recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for good seafood, but come on slow days. The waitstaff didn't seem prepared for crowds. One of the hostesses was wearing what looked like sweats and her hair wasn't done. Not too much attention to detail by the wait staff, but excellent food.

Waiter was ignorant of which whiskeys were available except for three. He did not remember who ordered what. He was nice enough but inexperienced and not very familiar with the menu. Overall we had a good time though when we arrived the hostess was not up-to-date on the additional guests we added through Open Table about an hour before the reservation time so there was a bit of a wait as they scrambled to be ready for us.

We went to the Seafood Shack, and everyone enjoyed their meal, but myself. I had the catfish, which was overcooked and not seasoned well. The waiter was very lackluster, and was not friendly. You could tell he was annoyed and didn't want to be working.
