I'm helpless in front of a plate of Wellfleet oysters, and this place had the freshest, briniest, and tastiest of the 8 dozen or so halfshells that I ate during a week at the Cape. Fried & steamed clams, fried and broiled fish also classic. No sitdown service - you order at takeout windows and can eat at outdoor picnic... More

We ate our food at the picnic tables. We came early so did not have to wait too long. Everything was freshly cooked and I loved the calamari. Great value for money.

We have been coming to Wellfleet for years and Mac's is a tradition not to miss. The fried seafood is lightly coated and cooked to perfection. We usually order it to go & take it to Duck Harbor for a sunset picnic. Yummy! Be sure to head there one night (or more) to get some ice cream and walk around... More

Great to pick up food or eat at the handful of picnic tables on the pier. The service is a little slow but the hot lobster roll is huge and excellent although VERY pricey.

Located right at the harbor in Wellfleet. Order at one window, pickup at another and then sit at one of the many picnic tables at the edge of the pier. All kinds of fried seafood, reasonably priced and all very tasty. Plenty to pick from for all tastes and ages. A very good place to take the young children without... More

Love their scallop and lobster rolls! Their lobster chowder was not so good, really thin and only one piece of lobster...and luke warm. Everything else I have had there has been great!

Hands down, this is our kids first choice on our annual trip to Wellfleet. The food is consistently good. My favorite is the salmon, swordfish or tuna sandwich. If ordering lobster roll, I suggest requesting no lettuce. Otherwise, the lobster is skimpy. One treat for our family is having lobsters steamed and cracked by the market in the rear and... More

We have a boat in Weelfleet harbor and love to stop by Macs either before or after a day of boating. I think the best food here are the burritos. This trip we had the fish burrito, but we have also enjoyed the chicken and the jerk pork and loved them. Someone in out party had the grilled salmon wrap.... More

Nice location, so-so food. The Cape needs something to raise the bar as this little place demonstrates. The menu offerings are fairly standard as is the resultant product. As we were a family of eight, none of us left with a "can't wait to return" take on the place.
