 (Phoenix)·Dined 5 days ago

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.

Ugh. Seated next to super loud large table, long wait for food, wrong salad (mine), extra small piece of salmon on husband's salad, no service, had to ask for check, long, long wait for charge...we were anxious to leave.

Was disappointed that some of their menu items were not available. They did not have the shrimp n grits and they ran out of rainbow trout. Instead we orders the lobster dinner and broiled scallops, that came with side. Both weee good and at a relatively fair price. Was disappointed they would not give us happy hour deals even though we were adajacent to the bar. The crab sliders had a little to much filling when that small should be lump meat.

We decided to try Mac's based on the reviews on Open Table. We both love calamari and have eaten it at many restaurants across the country. This was the worst we've had--tough, not well fried, and with a poor choice of sauce. A bad start. The rolls were hot and reasonably good. Caesar salads were quite good. The seafood gumbo and jambalaya were both OK--nothing special. We don't plan to go back.

Eaten at Mac's several times and the food and service are consistently good. The night we went they had an awesome salmon special. Another person in our party ordered the salmon from the regular menu. Both were delicious. Wine list is average but they do offer some fun cocktails.

Great dinner. My wife had the summer seafood pasta dish with lots of extra sauce. Could have been a little more lemony ! I had the Porterhouse Pork Chop special with potato pancakes. Both were really well prepared and very tasty.
