We have alternated between cooking at our rental house and going out to local restaurants this week, so this was my night off from kitchen duty. I wanted good food, dress casual, comfortable place (read NOT fancy) and out the question to several full and part-time Wellfleet residents. Every one of... read more

Mac's is a permanent fixture of most of our trips to Cape Cod. Based on the last two visits, I can say, without hesitation, that this place: 1. Has some of the best seafood I have ever had - and I grew up living near the ocean and have a fair bit of experience on this topic. 2. Has the... More

This is one of the few places in Wellfleet I would consider for an adult night out. The outside bar is vibrant, crowded and has a good assortment of specialty drinks and wines by the glass. We had sushi as an appetizer and it was very good. We also had the steak which was excellent. Expect a long wait if... More

This is a very busy restaurant and you should plan to have a wait to be seated. If possible I would suggest asking to sit outside as it can be crowded and loud inside. I had a beet salad which was very good and steamers. The steamers were delicious. Our waiter was helpful and friendly. I can't wait to come... More

This was our second time coming to this spot for lunch while visiting charming Wellfleet and enjoyed it even more. Very good food, very good service and a lot of great Cape Cod atmosphere.

We've been to Mac's many times before. It's a grand place--an up-scale sort of clam shack. They do good sushi, etc. but I almost always go for the scallops, which are simply broiled and are delicious. Rare and wonderful, even. Salads and sides are good, too. Fish and chips reliably tasty. Drinks are a little on the pricey side but... More
