Our meals were great. My wife had the Buffalo Shrimp and I had the bone-in pork chop with a bourbon glaze. Our service was well handled. A great dining experience.

Our waitress was nice. She took our drink orders and left when she brought them we told her we wanted to order appetizers. She took our dinner order at the same time. Another waiter who was in training showed up with our meals. We told him we had ordered appetizers. While he did apologize I would have expected him or his trainer would have told our waitress or the manager. Nope. Our waitress found out after we were half way through our meal. The food was ok. My husband and I had shrimp with rice and beans. I didn’t think the beans should have been hard. As we were leaving another waitress who apparently was in s big hurry knocked my arm with the bottle of wine she was carrying. When I said owe she asked if she hit me. Really rude

For a restaurant that I have loved, service and food on this visit were lacking. The bar and food service was slow, and the drinks and food that we ordered wasn’t as tasty as it usually is. In the years I have dined here, the service and food quality was always good. Maybe it was the other restaurants in the area being closed this evening or lack of staff around the holiday that led to my group being disappointed. The drinks were too staring and without flavor, oysters weren’t shucked properly, the pecan crusted fish was soggy, the swordfish was over cooked, as was the salmon. We didn’t opt for dessert based on our drinks, appetizers, and dinner.

I’ll look forward to a better experience next time.

Nice and relaxed place. But no a/c? Fans were going, they need more. 94 outside, so was hoping it would have felt cool inside. If a/c wasn't working the waiter never mentioned it.

Our lunch started off with a very pleasant welcome from our server, Kevin. He walked us through our menu options and patiently repeated as necessary. The meal was delicious, atmosphere great and we never felt rushed to "clear out" as sometimes happens at other restaurants. We chose Mac's because we've enjoyed so many visits in the past.

The food was unremarkable, and the cocktails were too poor to rate...but the service was great! We had a reservation, but when we arrived, no one asked our name (when we told them we had a reservation) therefore, OPEN table listed us as a no show... the prices are inflated, but no mor so than any other seafood restaurant in this area. I would not go again.

Hostess was rude and not helpful. Didn't want to honor our reservation as it was "made the same day". Also did not want to honor the request for outdoor seating and claimed there was no way thru Open Table to communicate back to the customer about our reservation. Food was just OK. Table service was slow and inattentive. Won't be going back!

Really good food at reasonable prices. Love restaurants that bring rolls/grain to start! Added that all baked goods (including the rolls) are from local Zingerman's - so known to be delicious. It has been awhile since we have had a chance to drive there for dinner, so glad we did!

We were in Ann Arbor for our son's graduation and found Mac's for dinner. We were pleasantly surprised. Our food was wonderful -- swordfish and Great Lakes whitefish -- fixed perfectly and seasoned just right. Our waiter was very personable. It was an enjoyable evening. We will definitely return on our next trip to Michigan!

We had a nice waitress, the food was ok, but for $14, I expected larger and more shrimp on the po boy. My friend felt the sausage ravioli tasted fishy and the sauce was too rich. The calamari is rubbery and not freshly made. They look like tires. They used to be so much better. For the prics, the quality of the food should be much better.
