This was the first time I have visited Mac's. I enjoyed my "Red fish" entrée. My wife also enjoyed her scallop meal.

Had a great evening dinner. My wife had her favorite Lobster pasta and I had the premium sirloin steak meal. Both were perfectly prepared and served. Service was well handled. Place was really busy and active. Wait staff did a really nice job dealing with the business.

I am from the area originally but live in Dallas and travel quite a bit. I love New Orleans-cuisine and this is very good but not what I’m used to getting. The gumbo has a cream sauce instead of the roux sauce I’m used to. But the oysters on the half shell were delicious. I have to ask for crackers and the first time I came all they had were oyster crackers for the raw oysters. They had some this time, only a couple though so I had to ask for more. They are trying to accommodate my style and the service is good and it is a very popular restaurant that looks like it has once been three shops now all converted to one large restaurant. A very popular dining spot in the small town of Saline on a major artery near Detroit.

My boyfriend and I have enjoyed Macs numerous times. I have also taken clients there for lunch and dinner meetings. It has always been fantastic. However, we went on Valentines Day and my dish (that I always get), was awful. I was so disappointed. However, that is the first time I have walked out unhappy. Typically a great place.

I love going to Mac's! It's over a 40 minute drive, so I don't go there as much as I'd like. Their food is always great and the prices are reasonable. This is my #1 seafood place -- Better than Real Seafood in Ann Arbor (which is only a 30-minute drive).

Also, they have a rewards club that is free to join and gets you a free appetizerjust for signing up. Sign up with your phone: Text "MACS" to 55678 . ( you will recieve a txt back, leave the card number "blank" and fill in the form to register.)

The folks at the door were friendly and sat us right away. It has a nice open feel with sparse fish decor on the walls. The menus were digital tablets with most items clickable for a description and picture. So far so good. Once the soft drink was dropped off, we were basically forgotten about. Bread was dropped off (tasty) but we still hadn't placed our food order. When our order was finally taken, I felt rushed. The food came out fairly quickly after that and the presentation was very nice. Good use of plate sauce and garnish which made it all the more disappointing when the flavour didn't hold up the expectations. It was instead sweet, bland, and mushy. I was really looking forward to finding another location that serves good fish so I may have to give them another chance but this was not and very promising experience.

Enjoyed special lunch pricing during restaurant week!

Unfortunately, bread wasn’t very hot and soup was barely warm. Coleslaw was ok. Tuna melt was delicious & friend’s club looked very good.

Waitress was ok—had to ask for some things a couple times...

Mac's is a wonderful restaurant in downtown Saline. I had not been there in years, but it remained remarkable. Many great, fresh seafood selections. I had the Fisherman's Catch on pasta. The shrimp. scallops and particularly the calamari were perfectly cooked. We will be back much sooner that our last hiatus!

Food was good but service was horrible. It took forever to get our drinks. Waitress never brought any bread. We had to constantly ask for drink refills. Waitress was more interested in what other wait staff was doing, maybe because she’s younger? We were there for my mothers 70th birthday. I had to tell the waitress to fix the bill for the birthday promo. For what we paid, I didn’t feel we received our money’s worth. We’ve been there before and didn’t have issues with service. We will go back again but will request more mature waitstaff. Just unfortunate that we had to experience that on a special night.

We were very disappointed in the food, especially after reading all the four and five star reviews. They had to have been fake or written by people who do not dine out very often. My new york strip was very thin and very overcooked. The calamari is inedible. My husband had the etouffee and he described it as "meh". The coleslaw is drowning in mayonnaise. We do not mind paying a lot of money for excellent food at a great restaurant -- this is not one of them. The ambiance is very nice and the service was very good. Dan's Tavern across the street is much better food and a way better value.

We visited this time for my husbands birthday. They have a great birthday deal which is really nice but even without it we would enjoy going there. The food is excellent (and consistently so) and the staff is helpful and friendly. The food is delicious. Options for non-seafood eaters but definitely a go to for seafood. We are in love with their lobste poutine appetizer. Gator is fun too. All of it is good.
