Mac's Shack is a great spot to grab a cocktail and a bite to eat. Menu items include sushi, as well as a variety of other food choices. Although this is not fine dining, the bar is lively and it is a good place to people watch! We prefer to sit outside at the covered patio/bar.

This is my favourite restaurant in Cape Cod. We have been coming for years and always buy seafood from Macs and visit his various restaurants. Wellfleet remains our favourite as we enjoy the bar and setting. The food is fresh, delicious and imaginative and we have always had good service. The only downside is the queue but if you are...

Snobby hostesses didn't hold us back. We figured "boy this is crowded so it must be good" So we got some oysters and a few drinks and waited. So 10 minutes after the quoted time we went over to the "not so pleasant" hostess and asked if it would be much longer, and after she rolled her eyes she said... More

I recently took 10 family members to Mac's for dinner. We went early (5:15 p.m.) so we would't have to make the young kids in our group wait too long for dinner, and were seated immediately (inside). Our waitress was phenomenal-cheery, well informed and speedy in delivering our drinks. We all agreed that the Wellfleet oysters we ordered on the... More

We were here on a busy August Saturday but the service was excellent!!! From the parking lot, to the hostess to the amazing server Angelica our first stop on the cape was a great welcome back. There was an impressive outdoor bar but we were too hungry to wait for spots to open outside. On another day it looks like... More

We are all happy to sit and wait 45 minutes sans reservation (they don't take 'em) to get a table at Mac's. We went last night - husband and two kids, 10 & 6. Treated ourselves to the pork belly after some delicious Wellfleets. Holy crud, that was good! I know it's a seafood place but the combination of flavors... More

For the freshest seafood, this is the best choice in Wellfleet. Loved the Sashimi especially. Tuna and salmon are superb. Oysters are tops!

Have been there twice in the last 2 weeks. Love the scene. Staff and clientele are friendly. Get there early or be prepared to wait. That's just the way it is at popular no reservation places all over the cape in the summer. Food and service during our first visit was fantastic. Oysters were fresh and tasty. Kamikaze roll was...

Great atmosphere, delicious food, great options. The place has a shack setting but restaurant par food and pricing. Would recommend this place for a night on the Cape
