Wonderful lobster shack

Fresh fish and harbor view - what more could you want? It's a well done version of the classic lobster shack.

We had just had a couple of dinner experiences that were "sub-optimal" so we were doubly delighted with everything at Mac's! It's a casual seafood restaurant right on the harbor and it seems to do everything right. Our welcome and service throughout was very friendly and efficient. Our steamed lobster, salmon, oysters and scallops were all very fresh and perfect.... More

There are a number of restaurants with the same name. They are all a bit different, but the same owner. This one has an outdoor raw bar with dining as well as indoor dining. We had a late lunch here with friends on a very rainy day. It was pretty quiet, and we received great service. When I asked some... More

This is literally a shack right near the Wellfleet Harbor Marina. You order your food, then pick it up and eat outside at picnic tables. The food is the traditional cape fair with some daily specials. I had the fired scallop platter but it was not as good or as bountiful as other nearby places. Plus it was more expensive.... More

Got freshly shucked oysters from the fish market and enjoyed them as we took in the wonderful view. The experience reminded us of a similar experience on California, but without the champagne. Next visit, we will come prepared in that regard!

Having a perfect late September day certainly made our meal experience even better. Easy to order - ready fast - fair market value. They only offer outdoor seating. Very casual but a fun way to soak up the atmosphere in Wellfleet harbor

*Note- this is a review of "Mac's On the Pier" which is the restaurant extension of "Mac's Seafood" located on the Wellfleet pier. "Mac's Seafood" itself is a distributor of fresh seafood to consumers and restaurants.* As a person who has been vacationing Wellfleet for a month every summer for over 20 years, I have some experience with Wellfleet restaurants....

One of the best lobster bisques, nice chunks of meat and the right amount of cream. Enjoyed a shrimp quesadilla, cool mash up of Mexican and seafood. Clam strips not shabby either.

I want to like this place (the one at the pier) but it always comes up short. The seafood is okay, but I always feel like I pay too much for not much food. I got burgers once and they weren't good. I also don't like the picnic tables in the sand and it's not very well lit.

Very New England setting, with seafood galore from local waters. Oysters, clams and fresh sword are only 3 of many excellent dishes. Comfortable room, outside dining available.
