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.

Busy

I've only been once but it seemed busy and kind if rushed. The food was delicious and they had great options but It was little expensive. It's a nice atmosphere and the burgers are huge . A good resterant for a couple

The steaks were sort of okay surely not the Texas Road house or steak house quality. The mashed potato seemed homemade although the gravy appeared to be straight out of the can. cute little cornbread and a little bread and butter , Salad was okay but over all not worth the price or the time.

My wife and I went for drinks and appetizers with another couple. I have not been to Mac's for quite some time and I was very impressed and will definitely be going back, as well as recommending it to others. I love a good red ale and they had gearys peacemaker on tap, that they serve in frosted glass' perfect... More

Met friends at Mac's during ME Restaurant Week. Food was very good, service was excellent and the servings were more than ample. My only disappointment was that I ordered the wings as my appetizer choice. They didn't compare at all to the other appetizers. They were not very warm, were heavily fried and were only marginal. My dining companions opted... More

We are very picky health nuts. The grilled chicken breast and haddock was really good. We sampled all the rubs & sauces and liked the teriyaki sauce (not salty at all) great taste. The parmasian haddock was very tasty and not oily at all. The bartenders were VERY attentive, all making sure we had everything we needed/wanted.

When you first walk in, the place has an awful awful awful smell. The layout is pretty weird too where the entrance is off the parking lot. The food is not worth the price. Although the prices are average, the portions are small and unfulfilling.

This place delivers on quality. The steak cuts are plentiful and the menu options are robust. Food is consistent most of the time. Service is usually good, but almost always slow. When we were here last week, we were seated immediately at 8:30 PM, but our food took more than an hour to arrive. We ordered a to-go meal which... More

I local innkeeper recommended Mac's Grill "if you like a good steak". I was a little skeptical - Auburn Maine isn't exactly Chicago, Kansas City or Calgary - but I was very pleasantly surprised. The steak was excellent and the price very reasonable. The place is noisy, but the crowd friendly, as is the wait staff. I would recommend it... More
