In my group of four, we each ordered something different. All of us were very pleased with our choices. The restaurant is very attractive, and service was excellent.

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.

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.

Super dry burger - fiod was delivered by a busser that kind of just slammed it down haphazzardly. Fried shrimp was ok but again very dried out shrimp. Gaspacho was ok but did not taste homade.

Bathrooms were really dirty which always makes me wonder about the kitchen cleanliness.

Won’t go back - not worth the drive.

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.
