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 were there on New Year’s Eve. The service was slow and our server seemed overwhelmed. He did not attend to us as we expected based on reviews and other dining out experiences. Our meals were tasty and the brownie dessert was very good.

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.

The food was great as usual, but the service was terrible. The waitress did not seem interested in serving and more interested in leaving for smoke breaks. 20 minute minimum waits between her visits and had to ask to finally order. The plates were delivered incorrectly which understandably happens but there was no urgency in bringing the correct items. Overall we have always enjoyed Macs but this server defenitly put a damper on the meal on this occasion.

This was my first time here and it was delicious! The fried alligator was my favorite- it tasted as good as any Texas alligator I have had in the past. Drinks took a little due to the bar being busy, and a bit pricey but they were worth the wait.

Service was OUTSTANDING. It has been a tad uncertain over past several months and seems to be lot of turnover. One person is consistently excellent, however: Jennifer is amazing. She is efficient, friendly and makes us feel special every time she serves. Thanks, Jen! You rock.

A bit over priced for what you get. Ordered the Jambalaya and it was just ok. Not even close to Fishbones in Detroit. Waitress was ok, place was not busy and she still wasn't around much. To present itself as an upscale restaurant? NO. I would call it a nice Joe's crab shack...

We had a an early dinner with our UM student son and two of his friends. The food was really good, loved the renovated dining room since our last visit with the new ipad menus with photos. The hostess gave us a perfect table and our waitress (Hailee) was super nice and efficient. I highly recommend all Mac's great seafood dishes. I grew up on the Chesapeake Bay and usually avoid crabcakes anywhere west of Maryland. Most of the time they're never close to the east coast quality but I was pleasantly surprised. Thanks Mac-we had a great evening.

Continue to love Macs and bust very regularly. Just wish they could keep staff and lower turnover. In a neighborhood gem it’s nice to have familiar faces.
