Diverse menu, delicious food, good service, nice atmosphere...our group enjoyed it all! Was also nice to be able to sit outside on a lovely summer evening. I look forward to returning and trying more of the items on the menu.

Consistently good enough to draw us back regularly. Wait staff has lots of changes, which concerns, but...oh well. It’s a highly recommended.

Macs was a wondering find! There T-shirt motto is appreciated and came true “simple seafood with Cajun Fire”! We enjoyed every dish served and the staff was friendly and attentive. We’ll be back when in the area.

Perfect outdoor dining area. Lots of spots in the shade on a hot day. food is a cut above the regular burger and a beer. BBQ salmon with mango chutney if you see what I mean. Delicious. Attentive waiter. Nice experience.

Although we have had some good dinners here in the past, the birthday luncheon was very poor... both food and service. For example, the avocados were rock hard, the orders brought out were not accurate, the service slow, and the billing all confused.

We both had our favorite entrees; my wife had the lobster and shrimp fettuccine and I had tge New Orleans Shrimp with Red Beans and Rice. They were perfect. Michael's service was wonderful. Will be back soon.

My wife and I have dined at Mac's on numerous occasions. It's always been a good experience. We both enjoy seafood and Mac's is one of the best in the area. This past visit happened to be on my birthday but we do eat there several times a year. Saline has some excellent restaurants. We have been to several but are most likely to return to Mac's.

My husband and I had a great dinner there the other night. We shared the gumbo yaya as an appetizer and it was the best I have ever had. It was perfectly seasoned. For dinner I had the pecan and cajun whitefish and my hisband had the shrimp and crav pasta both were cooked perfectly and delicious. Our service was great as well. We can't wait to go back.

Food was good; children's salad plate was excellent; my Caesar salad came with a side anchovies for those who like them which was a nice touch.
Service was slow ~ folks around us who ordered after we did received their drinks before we did.

We had four for dinner on Friday night and enjoyed it quite a bit. The restaurant was really empty probably b/c it was the beginning of the July 4 holiday period. Our husbands had oysters that looked good and fresh. Two of us had fish and chips, I had fried shrimp and my girlfriend had the white fish. All was good. The fried food is on par with fried fish at any restaurant -- nothing special. We had a nice table and were able to lower the blinds as the sun was barreling in the windows at dinner time. On balance, we had a lovely dinner with terrific friends and were not distracted from our enjoyable evening with any food/service issues. So, I consider the evening a success. I love the close proximity to my house and the ease of getting a reservation. This is a great neighborhood resource.

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.
