Let me start by saying I’ve been here 100’s of times and stopped going about a year ago. Now I remember why.

Between the waitress basically doing nothing besides messing up my order and the food being burnt it was a terrible experience.

Ordered French onion soup as an appetizer. Well guess what never came. As my food is being brought out the waitress says “oh my bad” do you still want it. NO I don’t still want it. So the food is out down on the table. As I said earlier I haven’t been there in a while so maybe I should’ve asked but steaks no longer come with any sides like they used to. I’ll put that on me, the steak being burnt and the baked potato being burnt on the outside and cold on the inside is on them.

This place has gone down in quality over the years and continues to. I figured I’d give it one more chance but that was quickly blown.

My husband and I were looking forward to a much needed, romantic dinner on Valentine’s Day. In addition to it being the holiday, my husband finally received great news after battling cancer for a year, so we also wanted to celebrate that. This was a big night for us
When we walked into the restaurant, the area by the hostess station was lovely. However, as we were escorted to our table, the impression we first had abruptly changed, as the surroundings now looked old and unimpressive, to say the least.
The tables around us were extremely noisy. I’m not sure if it was because the music in the restaurant was playing too loudly and so people had to talk over it, but it created an ambience that was far from romantic for our Valentine’s Day night out.
My steak was pretty good, not the best. My husband ordered shrimp and lobster risotto. The lobster was terrible. It was over cooked and dry. The shrimp was ok. Our side order of mashed potatoes tasted like they were made From potato flakes, rather then real mashed. Whether that’s accurate or not, really doesn’t matter, as they were nothing to speak of.
I also have to stay on a gluten free diet. As far as desserts went, there really wasn’t much to choose from that was gluten free. (Another disappointment)
I honestly wish we had stayed home. The meal would have been better and we wouldn’t have had to practically shout to speak to one another.
We will NEVER return to this restaurant, and am sorry we picked this location to spend our very important evening at.

this restaurant needs major updated. I have visited in the past about 6-7 yrs ago and it was nice and well kept.

bathrooms are dirty, Place looks dingy specially the second floor and food was far from tasty. The lighting and decor looks like they are in need of a serious decor update as everything look either old, outdated or dirty.

We were very excited to spend New Years Eve at this beautiful restaurant, which we had been to several times before.
A bit disappointing. Starting with unfriendly staff at the bar. Its New Year’s eve... smile.
Waited a bit for a table, which we didn’t mind, and understand its a busy night.
Our server was, also, less than friendly and was quite rushed. Entrees we were looking forward to having were sold out (before 9 pm on a busy night).
Salad had soggy croutons and was less than average.
Steak was excellent. Salmon, overcooked and dry. Creamed spinach, not creamed at all. French fries, better at a fast food drive through.
Unfortunately, if we return, it won’t be for a while and certainly, not during a holiday.

I was extremely disappointed with our New Year’s Eve dinner at 8:00 pm. I understand that the restaurant was busy but that is not an excuse for terrible food! After all, NYE is an annual event! Our wedge salads came without bacon, we had to ask for it separately. My husband and I ordered a rib eye to share, which was overdone for medium and tasteless. The au poivre sauce seemed like an instant mix. My daughter had the seafood risotto. It was dry and looked like regular rice, not creamy as a good risotto should be. My son in law ordered the skirt steak, medium, with potato au gratin. His steak arrived quite a bit after the rest of us were served and looked steamed, no visible signs of grilling, pouring blood juice filled his plate. The au gratin potato was also not creamy or cheesy. It looked more like pastry, flakey and cut into triangles? Probably made in huge trays days in advance and allowed to dry out while being reheated. We think his order may have been overlooked in the kitchen and then rushed out when they noticed there was no food in front of him. We spent last NYE at Mac’s and had a great meal. This year was terrible. We will not be returning any time soon.

The place is outdated, my wife and I walked in to an almost empty dinning room and we were the only people under 60. The steaks was cooked to the temperature I asked for but there was zero seasoning on it. My wife and I wasted a night out with no kids on this meal. We won't make the same mistake again.

I was extremely underwhelmed by this restaurant. Despite the negative reviews I read online I gave Macs the benefit of the doubt and I decided to dine there with family and friends. The reviews were indeed correct! The only bright side either than my company was our server. She was personable and professional. The food and cocktails were not upscale quality. I will not recommend this establishment to anyone.

Crowded Saturday night. No hostess when we arrived. Seated at table that had no chairs, no silverware and seemingly hadn’t been cleaned. Obviously short-staffed. As fellow diners left, tables were left dirty and unattended. By the time we left, more than a half dozen tables littered with dirty dishes surrounded us. Food was just average, nothing particularly amazing. Filet mignon just ok. Baked potato over cooked and dry. Overall, a fairly unpleasant night out.

You are 100% right. We had a few unexpected snafus on Saturday, including an unexpected death and, to put it lightly, it wasn't our best showcase, at all. Our staff did the best they could with the circumstances they were handed, and we're so sorry that was the showcase you experienced. We would love to invite you back for a real Mac's experience: the experience so many have spoken about over the last 10 years. Please feel free to e-mail me directly: macsparties@gmail

It was a very busy Saturday evening and the servers must have been overwhelmed and understaffed. We had a table of six and waited a while just for enough menus to be available. Then we waited a long time just to give our drink order. We sat down at 7:15 and didn’t leave until 10pm. 45 minutes after we ordered our food the server told one of my friends that they had run out of his dish. There were no bus boys either so the dirty dishes and glasses weren’t cleared from our table even when our entrees were served. Our tuna appetizer was literally gray and we sent it back because it was clearly over cooked. The entrees were mediocre at best. Not worth the prices charged. Our server had a bad attitude and when we questioned the 20% added gratuity she threw down a new bill and walked off. Making us wait once again just to pay and finally get out of there. It was also incredibly noisy and we were seated at a table for 8 (even though there were only 6 of us) making it difficult for us to have conversation. We have been to this restaurant many times before and it was NOT our first bad experience. We’ve given it several chances because we live locally and like to support local businesses. we will not be back. Ever.

You are 100% correct. We failed Saturday, and the only thing we can do is take accountability for the day. There were a number of unexpected snafus that we were hit with, and, as management, I feel terrible that this was the diners experience. We are making internal changes so a night like this never happens again. Thank you for your honest feedback, and, we are so sorry again.

This was our fist time visiting Mac’s and unfortunately it will be our last. We came in to try the Long Island restaurant week menu. My steak was over cooked and our meals were under seasoned over all. The lobster bisque appetizer was good and our meatball was flavorful but nearly cold.
Unfortunately we will not be back.

Both of our steaks were tasty but overcooked. My wife requested medium rare on her fillet and it was medium-medium well. I asked for a rare bone in rib eye and it was medium-medium rare. The mashed potatoes tasted like boxed potatoes. The steaks while not cooked to our desired temperatures were good and the wine was good. Overall a meh experience with a more than meh price tag.

Hey there- we're sorry you felt this way. We pride ourselves on the fact that all of our products, like mashed potatoes, are made in house.
