    Food was great as always. Sat in the very back, away from the noise of the bar. Unfortunately, the people handling the dirty dishes were making so much noise with the dishes, we could barely hear ourselves talk. Won’t sit back there again!

    The food at Mac's never disappoints. It's a great relaxed atmosphere for friends, family and business meals. It can be noisy, so take that into consideration if you're trying to have business discussions here. Special requests for drink and food was done correctly. You don't find that often these days.

    The food and service are always great. The CFS is always spot on. The étouffée, which has been the best in town for the 35+ years I’ve been going to Mac’s, was lacking the great flavor I’ve come to expect.

    My wife often enjoys the fish at this restaurant but I cannot get away from ordering the prime rib with the bone in. It is possibly the best prime rib in DFW. Our waiters Reza always gives great service.

    Server not very attentive. Salads were ready and sitting in a tray which we could see. They were just left there until the food was ready to come out. All of it was brought out at the same time and we had to hold the salads up off the small table because there wasn’t enough room. Then the food , the potato was good but the chopped steak I ordered at medium rare was so dry and over cooked I just didn’t eat it. The other guests at the table had the same experience. One ladies steak looked like charcoal. Worst experience ever at a laundry’s restaurant.

    Restaurant was very busy and our waitress forgot to bring us more salad until we were about finished our meal and only checked on us once. That’s not the usual service at Mac’s. Two of us enjoyed our meal but our third guest did not enjoy his ribeye steak. Again, unusual for not all of us to be very satisfied. Hoping it was just a bad night and maybe a newer waitress who will improve with experience.

    Food was kind of Bland. I asked to taste the Etoufee sauce to see if I liked it before ordering and the waiter brought me the gumbo instead lol ignored it and ordered the sea bass and it didn’t seem to have any flavor except butter. Couldn’t taste the difference between the fish or the crawfish topping. Needed citrus or salt or something. I eventually seasoned myself and asked for lemons. Calamari was interesting but the marinara was actually delicious. Also really enjoyed the Gumbo, ended up ordering a cup after tasting it, and it had excellent deep roux flavor. Cheesecake is nothing to write home about. Tasted more like sour cream than cheesecake. Would go back but definitely get something else.

    Enjoyed a birthday brunch for my sister. Our server Zoe was fabulous and the food was excellent! Unfortunately, the noise level was incredibly loud and we struggled to hear one another a bit (might be due to all-tile flooring and low partitions throughout the restaurant). FYI: The mini-cinnamon rolls are beyond belief delicious!
