Nice Lunch with Friends

Following a five mile hike in nearby Silver Creek Falls State Park, we decided to eat at Mac's Place before returning to Salem. I had a really nice burger, enjoyable and tasty. My friends split a bowl of turkey soup (HOUSEMADE!!!!) and they liked that as well as the sandwich. I had a beer from a... read more

We ate here after a hike at Silver Falls. The building is neat, and the menu is large, but the service was pretty awful. The waitress took a very long time to serve us, and kept telling us she was "slammed", which was weird because there were four servers for a small restaurant with more than half the tables open....

Atmosphere is lacking as it is just a generic bar, but the menu is huge. I had one of their mac n cheese dishes : dirty shrimp mac...quite good. My friend had a salad that she enjoyed. I wouldnt rush back but I wouldnt mind going again.

We had drinks, dinner, music, pool and an awesome time with my daughter on this particular evening. Everyone was very friendly. The food was excellent and delivered in an appropriate amount of time. We were not in a hurry and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Thank you!!

We happened upon this place while strolling downtown Silverton and I was attracted by the sign advertising a Blues Jam that night. Being that it was lunch time I convinced my wife that it was a safe place to rest our feet. Mac's is a large space, half bar and dining that restricts minors and half with a stage, a... More

So I have heard this from other people and then it happened to me!!!! We were charged for drinks we NEVER ordered! And the worst part is that they were drinks that we would never even drink. When we confronted the waitress and bartender they were extremely rude and kept arguing with us. So if you go to this place... More

Not much to say about a pub, or maybe closer to a bar, than it has typical burgers, salads, and beer. Service can be a little slow at times. But there are times when the live music is fantastic. Across the street is the famed movie theater, The Palace, which makes the short trip to Silverton worth it.

A little bit noisy for some but the food is great and many beers on tap. Service is excellent with VERY pleasant staff Have had breakfast lunch and dinner there in the past. No complaints at all.

Slow service and terrible food. Wait was not worth it, we waited over an hour at a slow time of day. Fries were white ( totally undercooked ) in salted and only warm. Burger was chewy and tasteless. I won't be returning.

We were probably the only people not "locals" in this very basic bar with generous pours and friendly folks. We played pool, had a couple of drinks, sat and enjoyed the jukebox music. Just a really pleasant experience and great way to wind down from our 7 hour drive. Plus we were able to ride our bikes back to the... More
