Great food and good service but slow. We go here before theater and this time allowed 2 hours and 15 minutes and we were strill driving like madmen to get to the theater on time.
Had dinner on St. Patrick's day of 2017. Didn't order corned beef and cabbage and regretted it! Made a point of going this year. The corned beef dinner was spectacular!! We frequently dine at Macs and have never been disappointed.
Delicious as always! Carrie was fabulous and made our visit exceptional!
Always a great meal. Been many times and never had a bad meal.
Always a treat to eat at Mac's Grill; never disappointed. Great local restaurant for steak! Easy to make reservations through Open Table!
thanks! great steak/seafood and excellent service!
Very great food and great service
my reservation was for 7:15 we got there at 7:20 my table was ready and waiting for me in the quiet corner that i requested.....my waitress(sorry forgot her name) was very attentive from the very start....we ordered appettizers and while all of us browsed the menu our waitress brought us some rolls and some little cupcakes that had jalapenos in them,,,yummm..i must say something about the broccoli slaw...what the hell is that being served for????....broccoli slaw in my mind...and im a very good cook....would mean maybe some coleslaw finely copped with small pieces of broccoli and a nice coleslaw dressing...so stupid me i said to bring out three dishes so everyone would have enough...instead they brought out this ramen noodle crap that was totally disgusting and had no broccoli in it....anyways i saw through that no problem....i had the bourbon maple salmon which was totally excellent cooked perfectly and totally delicious...it went perfect with the dark porter beer that i ordered...the sides though need to be larger....this is maine and people need carbs in the winter....i ordered mashed potatoes and the beans for sides and while they were totally excellent they could have been larger portions...anyways i cleaned my plate and combined with the apps (broccoli slaw excluded) and good beer and great company it was excellent....by the way who is the bar creep that goes around hugging all the girls????...that is kinda creepy especially in the times we live in... but overall 5 stars...thanks
Food was very good. Everything was fresh, hot, tasty. Waitress was excellent, very attentive but not over the top. Good meal.
Never had a bad meal here, Service great always. Choose this restaurant for a great steak dinner and a fun, relaxed atmosphere and you won’t be disappointed!
Our food & drinks were good in the restaurant. Everyone very nice! But we ordered a burger to go for my son & when he went to eat it (shortly after we got home), it was crispy burnt. He ate the fries and a few bites of his burger. I ordered a cheeseburger and got a hamburg. Disappointed. So I say if your going to get food from Mac’s to eat it there, takeout wasn’t good...
Glitch between restaurant & open table as Macs Grill did not have my reservation . Hostess had quite the attitude . Amy, our server was great. Steaks were very good
Mac's was outstanding! We were up in Maine for a HS hockey tournament, so we asked at the hotel for a good place to get a nice steak dinner. Wow! This place didn't disappoint. Extensive steak choices, plus chicken, pasta, fish, sandwiches, etc. The cuts of beef were equal to or better than what you get at Capital Grille, Morton's, Ruth's Criss...At half the price! It was so good, we went back the next night! Plus, choice of bar or dining room seating is a nice option. I would highly recommend Mac's when you're in the area. Great meal at a great price!!!
Mac's is always a reliable option. There have been VERY few times that we haven't been 100% satisfied. If we weren't they took good care of us. My wife's and my meal were great!!
Excellent service and excellent food! The waiter was very attentive and gave great suggestions. Food was very good even on such a busy night.
Unfortunately this visit wasn't as good as in the past. My husband and I have visited this restaurant on 4 different occasions. The first two visits a couple of years ago and then twice more recently, in the last few months. This visit was not as pleasant as the earlier ones. It was downright cold in the restaurant. Not sure if that was a result of customers coming in and out or just the outdoor temperatures had dropped and the building was not as airtight as it should be.
Also, I purchased a steak and requested it to be medium, after asking if that meant there would be some pink. I was told it would have pink and then I agreed to the medium. (Would have asked for rare otherwise.) When the rib-eye arrived, it was charred on part of the outside and had no pink whatsoever. Very disappointing this type of steak is not exactly cheap. The flavor was good in spite of not being cook to my preference.
The cornbread is always a treat and the waiter was pretty good.
In spite of the service, we will not probably go back again...not even for the cornbread.
We’ve visited twice in the last few weeks. Great service and great food both times. New owners, I think, since the last time we tried Mac’s 6 years ago? Despite it being busy evenings both occasions, we were promptly seated and waited upon. It’s now a go-to place for us! We were a party of 6 and a party of 4...everyone both evenings was very pleased with their meals.
Got seated late, even with a reservation. Took well over an hour to get our food. Food was luke-warm, at best.
Ribeye was grilled as requested and meat was flavorful delicious fries. Salad was just "ok", could stand more variety in the greens and maybe some croutons. The salad dressing (Italian) tasted a bit on the acid side. Bread was good. Enjoyed the cornbread with peppers. Overall a good meal.
Great steak! Prepared perfectly!! Wait staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of menu. This place met all our expectations!
great food. I highly recommend reservations as they are usually busy. the bare is less noisy than the dining area though
Always good food and service. It's my go-to whenever I'm in Lewiston/Auburn.
I took my wife here to have a night out and it was awsome. The food and service were excellent and delicious!
Love Mac's Grill each and every time I go in. The food is amazing and the service the same!
Great night out with the guys made even better with delicious dinner and great service! Thanks!
Great as always. Food and service were good. Not that busy and love using the open table app to make reservations. So easy and handy.
We enjoyed sampling the grill flavorings and then extremely enjoyed our steaks with our choice of grill flavors. Steaks done to order. Presentation was excellent. We had an excellent Birthday Dinner with our son. Thank you to our waiter for outstanding service.
Versatile menu but beef choices are the best!! Good food in a casual atmosphere.
Good food sports bar atmosphere great waiter.
Great food!! Went 2 nights in a row after golfing all day with friends. Great steaks and great appetizers. I only wish they still had prime rib!! Put it back on the menu...it's the best I've ever had!
Food was excellent! Service was better! Can't remember our waiters name, but he was fantastic!
A busy popular place....make a reservation so you don't have to wait! New bar area is nice but very loud so sit in dining area for any kind of conversation. Great steaks but lots of other options for non red meat eaters. Good service from Jeff!!
We were somewhat disappointed on this visit as the food was not as good as we are accustomed to for Macs. Steak salad greens not as vibrant as usual and the steak was under seasoned. My wife's haddock was over cooked and fishy. Her broccoli was undercooked although some people may like it that way. Service was excellent and the server comped us for the fish. Not up to usual standard and I hope we recover on our next visit. I've had some unbelievably good meals at macs so hoping it was just an off night.
Table next to us was very rude. They were saying horrible things about Mac's, yet we love it there it's one of our favorite places to go.
Nice place, have been many times before. Sat in dinning room, but bar is very good to be in as well. Lots of TV's and lots of folks.
Had not been in a while and was glad we went back. Delicious food, great service, all out pleasurable evening. Not far from our home so convenient for a work night.
Excellent and very consistent. A favorite place of ours when in the Auburn area.
The only problem we had was that we had to get our own menu's. Not sure if the waitress was stressed because of the size of our party or not. Other than that, she did a great job. Everyone in our group enjoyed our meals. My wife just mentioned that her salmon was a little dry. She ordered it with no glaze because of food allergies. Other than those two issues, everything was great.
We frequently go to Mac's Grill because we know we will get a great meal! I loved my Parmesan crusted haddock and hubby really enjoyed his bacon wrapped steak. The sides were great (broccoli, herb buttered carrots and a salad) and the bread basket is great (cornbread muffins!) The table right behind us was very loud with one guy doing stand-up comedy routines but luckily we were almost done dinner so we skipped dessert.
