Simply the best.

Yeah, I know. It's on a commercial stretch in Auburn and you may pass right by. But Don't. Excellent seafood. Fantastic fried clams and chowder. Once a month we try to make it out.

Had been told about the freshness of their seafood and the fact one could get Baked Stuffed Shrimp, which is difficult to find on local menus. Called in an order and was told to pickup in 25 minutes - arrived early and was able to watch the process while sitting at the bar area. The two young ladies were working... More

We were traveling and looking for a good restaurant – so we turned to Tripadvisor reviews. Everything sounded great but our group thought we were misled when we pulled in the parking lot. A very small joint that looks to be more a seafood market than a restaurant. We took two of the few tables that were there. First off,... More

Can always count on Mac's for delicious, fresh seafood. Fish, shell fish, lobster, .. doesn't matter it's all been fantastic.

We've had a few lobster bakes prepared for 6 people there, with steamed clams. They do a good job with that, at fair prices. When the market was down, it was ridiculously cheap! We've eaten in, as well. Their lobster rolls, both lobster "salad" and clear meat, are great for the price. Homemade French fies and onion rings - superb!

This is the place for fresh reasonably priced seafood. It is no where near the ocean, well about 45 minutes away, but they are connected and know how to cook up lobster. We always get it here to take home. You pick and they cook it for you and put it in a styrofoam container to take home or charge... More

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 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. I ordered a lobster roll dinner ($13.00) which had a small lobster roll (not that small), fries,... 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
