Great value and delicious seafood

This is a small hole in the wall seafood shack with just a couple tables inside and several picnic tables outside .If you're looking for ambiance, this is not it but if you're looking for fresh seafood, you've come to the right place.

For several years we really enjoyed getting fried seafood here. Clams are great. Always bought fresh lobsters. Last year and then again this year we bought the haddock sandwiches, which we always had loved. However, we found it was not haddock. He was giving you another fish, hake is my guess. The filets were at least 1 1/2" thick. No... More

Fresh, perfectly done seafood at a great price! Tiny place, though plenty of outside seating during the summer. The shore lunch special was the choice for most of us -- small lobster roll (hot dog roll packed with meat -- no fillers), cup of chowder, fries and slaw for $13. My fish chowder had plenty of chunks with a delicious,... More

This little gem is worth a visit. Owned by father and son, Paul Sr. and Paul Jr. They are friendly, clean and have an obvious passion for their business. No frozen fish here. Fish is delivered daily. Your lobster roll will be right from the tank. You can have it "clear", meaning no mayo, just lobster, or you can have... More

Excellent fried clams and lobster rolls. Ample portions too. The fish chowder is very tasty and has plenty of fish and not too much on the potato side.

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

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 lobster roll came on a... 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
