Best Oysters on the Cape!

Amazing seafood, sushi, raw bar, but, by far, the best oysters on the Cape, hands down! Can't stop dreaming about the Russian oysters (oysters, topped with creme fraiche, caviar and a shot of vodka! yum!!!). If only there was a way to have them delivered to NY! Great cocktails, fun atmosphere... read more

We dined here on 12/30/14. There were six of us. Four adults and 2 college age. We all enjoyed our meals . The group ordered a variety of different meals and all were excellent. The service was friendly without being fake. We were greeted nicely on entering and on departure at the front door. Whether it was Sushi, Scallops, or... More

Usually I shy away from any dining establishment that offers a mix of standard fare and something as specialized as sushi, but we had heard good things about Mac's Shack and attended events (beautifully) catered by them so we decided to give it a go when we were on The Cape in June. We had an outstanding late lunch on... More

We were advised to visit this restaurant by an American friend who went to Cape Cod every summer for 15 years. We stayed 3 nights in Chatham and after trying Macs Shack on our second night had no real choice but to return the next night. All the fish looked fantastic but the lobster was just superb.

The food was great. The service was great. The menu was interesting. It was so good, we found ourselves in the area a week later (with so MANY other dining options), and we went BACK! The oysters are amazing, large, flavorful, soft, buttery (try the Russian version with vodka!). If you are in Wellfleet, your are missing out if you... More

While a bit on the expensive side, this informal restaurant has superb food, great drinks, a fine beer list on tap, and friendly and professional service. Easily one of the top several restaurants in Wellfleet!

excellent gluten free selection, excellent cooking and excellent service. This is a seasonal restaurant open April through the end of October. Luscious seafood, gluten free clam chowder, and gluten free grilled scallops with risotto! Rustic seating with wait staff who appear to have an outstanding grasp on menu options!!! Wish it were open all year!

The best thing is the incredible view. It's a great place to grab a bite right on the water. There was a fairly long line, and wait to get food, but it was pretty good. Hubby loved the salmon sandwich, I had a lobster roll and clam chowder, both pretty good but not amazing.

One of the things that I look forward to is the seafood on Cape Cod. We had steamers and Wellfleet Oysters (one of the best oysters in the world) at Mac's Shack. The steamers were great (NO sAND OR GRIT ) IN THEM AND THE OYSTERS WERE COLD AND SERVED WITH A GREAT COCTAIL SAUCE,

We took a wrong turn when trying to find the Mass Audubon Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Preserve on Cape Cod and found ourselves in the little village of Wellfleet instead. It was lunch time so we headed to the water and stumbled upon Mac's Shack. What a treat. Great fish tacos, chowder and lobster rolls. We opted to eat outside which... More
