Great Lobster Roll - fresh seafood options

I went with a group from work for lunch. The building is small with a few tables inside and outside. I ordered a small lobster roll ($9) and a pint of sweet potato fries ($3). Others ordered the fried haddock sandwich ($6) or shrimp roll ($10). Our order was ready in about 10 minutes. The... read more

I love seafood, it is definitely one of my favorite foods. And oddly enough, there really aren't a lot of restaurants that specialize in seafood in the area. I'm not talking fancier places, just a place to get a quick bite. And Mac's is definitely the best for that! You can get takeout or eat there, they have a few... More

Had a very nice meal at a reasonable price. We had a large group of 14. The waitress was able to manage all of us without any issues. Food was tasty as well as attractive.

I swung in with a client for lunch. We got the Mac Shore Lunch which included a lobster roll, coleslaw, fries and chowder for 13 buck each! The lobster roll has a bit more mayonnaise then I was used to, but still very good. This is a small establishment with limited seating in doors and picnic tables outside. I would... More

I mentioned that previous order ( a week earlier) was somewhat rancid he got very hostile. I was in for a new take out order so I wasn't looking for a refund --I just wanted to give him infi. I will never go there again.

While in Auburn, ME for the holidays we talked to a few locals about the best place for lobster rolls. We kept hearing about Mac's Seafood (not to be confused with Mac's Steakhouse). We ordered 2 clear meat lobster rolls each. They were incredible, the best I have ever tasted. The amount of lobster and the size of the bun... More

Although it is a small place, it is comfortable and welcoming! Paul cooked to order and was very nice. Alison took our order and was sweet and informative after I asked a dozen questions. This is the place to go for fresh seafood and lots of it with hometown charm. We will be back!

While it's just a small place that looks like it only sells fish to cook, they in fact have a pretty deep menu of food cooked on site, and seating for 15 or so to enjoy right there (And rumor has it they are expanding?). Seating includes inside and outside which is nice when inside can get a bit loud... More

Not a great atmosphere but really great seafood. My wife and I both had the lobster salad roll and we both thought it was one of the best we have had. If you are in the area and want good seafood but without the fancy surroundings try Mac's.

Ate lunch on a beautiful fall day. Loved the outside picnic table option, especially with kids. Deep fried Maine shrimp and scallops were wonderful! Even the home cut fries were a treat. Took fresh seafood home for supper. We'll be back!
