We are a high energy restaurant with a vibrant neighborhood bar and grill appeal. Though we are known for our steaks, you will find there is something on the menu to please anyone in your group. We serve Choice Black Angus beef which is hand cut daily on the premises. Whether you are looking for a full course meal, or just out for a cold beer and a great burger, you are sure to feel right at home. So, throw on your most comfortable jeans and join us for a great meal and lots of laughs. Just a couple miles from downtown Auburn, you can't miss our log cabin featuring a comfortable deck for outside dining.

Unexpected Gem

We were looking for a good, local, non-chain restaurant and Mac's was advised by a sales clerk. From the outside the place looks like your typical steak house, but were we surprised! The staff is friendly and professional. The house drinks were creative and delicious. We had their Ice Tea which... read more

We were looking for a place to grab a bite to eat after we left the casino in Maine, so I used Tripadvisor and found Mac's. Well it kind of looks like a big cabin from the outside and when we walk in, it had pine board ceilings and a lot of TV's. To me, it was more like a... More

Mac's has great steaks. Excellent variety to choose from. Always expertly prepared. Great selection of sauces, rubs and toppings so you can really customize. Ask for the rub/sauce sampler tray before picking what you want. It's fun to try them all and pick. Friendly staff. Fun atmosphere. Choose the dining room for something a bit quieter, the large bar area... More

First I ordered a Daiquiri, but they had no LIGHT Bacardi rum. Then I ordered a gin & tonic but asked that they go easy on the tonic. It arrived in a large tall glass. Server said it should have been in a short glass. Then it came in another tall glass but smaller than 1st glass. I tasted it... More

Mac's has good steaks. I had a special: steak and haddock. The haddock was bland at best. The rice side was okay. They have a good selection of draft beers. The wait staff is attentive and helpful.

We have been coming to Mac's for years, and have never been disappointed. Our most recent visit earlier this month was no exception. We arrived early on a Sunday evening and were seated promptly. Warm bread and jalapeno corn muffins were a great start while we scanned the extensive menu. I don't know why I bothered--I always have the "Mini... More

Happened upon this place by chance, although it's not far from the new Oxford Casino. Enjoyed our meal. I had a prime rib that was perfectly cooked. My wife had the lobster Mac and Cheese. Service was impeccable. Food was served hot and in the proper order (appetizer, salad, soup, entree). Nice restaurant albeit a little noisy.

So the back of the servers shirts say.."where the Locals eat." Which appears to be true. Mac's is north woods lodge looking inside with plenty of room at each table so you don't feel crowded. There is an extensive menu featuring hand cut steaks that turn out to be just perfect. The service was prompt and friendly and the food... More
