My 90 year old mom has spring fever and was craving the coconut shrimp and a glass of wine. My daughter and her beau, my son, Mom and myself had a fabulous time. Amy was the most amazing waitress. I hadn't had her wait on me in awhile and she is still as fabulous as she was the last time I had her. I don't think I have ever had bad service there.

Made reservations for 7: 30 pm. Arrived at 7:20 pm. Ordered the cowboy cut medium rare garlic mashed potatoes and baked beans, my fiance ordered a hamburger. 2 couples that arrived 20 minutes after us receieved their food before us. After an hour of waiting we left for the front desk I offered to pay for the drinks we had and the woman at the from have us our meal to go and drinks for free as well as a $10 off the next visit. I was very impressed with that. Wouldve been perfect if our food came out quicker. It was a simple order that's what irritated us. Other than that would love to come again soon beautiful restaurant and really good steaks.

Wasn’t impressed that I had to send my drink back twice bc it was made wrong. I specifically asked for Malibu rum not any other rum and the first two times were perfect. Third drink had Bacardi in it, fourth one had parrots bay and then finally the 5th drink (sent 3&4 back) was made correctly.

We've been coming here for years due to the great food (steak in particular) and attentive waitstaff. Please note that if you make a reservation for a Friday or Saturday night, be patient and plan on NOT being seated at the time you requested. The place is hoppin'!

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.

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

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...

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!!!

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.

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.
