Good service good food.

The food and service were very good. We sat outside and were greeted promptly. The staff was friendly. The food came out warm and everything came as we ordered it. I would eat here again.

Of quite a bit of things. I tried to order a Greek salad but they were out. No beer either. But my husbands gyro was delicious. If it's a windy day I suggest not eating outside!

Very diverse menu from which I wish I had a chance to try more options. Unfortunately, allergies prevented me from trying the baked hummus cake. It sounds very interesting. I had the village salad with gyro meat and Greek dressing. It was different than what I have had at other restaurants, but very tasty. The waitstaff are conscientious about the... More

Ate outdoors here one night. The spanikopita was good and the side dishes were decent. The service was good, but not really great. The location is convenient to the Mayo Clinic campus.

Very nice Greek Diner. The gyros were delicious. The desserts were a over priced and not that good to be honest. Superior service!

Came here for lunch while visiting Mayo. Beautiful outdoor patio attached to the courtyard. I ordered a Greek salad and paid extra to include gyro meat. The salad was $16 so that did seem rather expensive...but it was delicious. Came with a warm pita. My husband had an original gyro plate...he said it was average but expensive. My son had... More

I was in Rochester 4 years ago for several days and after paying exorbitant prices at several local downtown restaurants - I stumbled across Mac’s Diner. I live in New Jersey and I truly know a good Greek Diner from a mediocre one. It was not mediocre four years ago – it was outstanding! So, when I returned to Rochester... More

I loved that you can eat a late breakfast here and the options are good. The meal was served fast and it was very yummy.

This was my first time having lunch at Mac's and was so impressed. All three of us would go back there in a heart beat. The service was wonderful also. Shelby was a great guy with plenty of stories. Good food and fun people.

I ate at Mac's largely because I wanted to sit outside. I ordered a Greek sampler platter, and it was small given the price, and the salad did not match the description on the menu. (No olives, peppers. Also, I am used to Greek salad having lettuce as a component.) Baked hummus was new to me, and it was fine,... More
