Every bite was delightful

What a fun place to have dinner. Crowded but worth the short wait. We went there with my uncle and aunt and had a delightful time. I ordered the fried clams which were delicate and bellies were light with wonderful flavor. My husband had the lobster tortellini which had wonderful flavor but he... read more

Great assortment of seafood, burgers, Mexican, ice cream in a great beach setting along the pier. Picnic tables on the sand, walk the beach, and great harbor views. Kids will live the sandy setting.

This place is great. The menu is mainly Japanese type entrees and appetizers with raw seafood bar thrown in. Nice selection of drinks as well. The place has an outdoor area with the raw bar and a drinks bar. Very casual, just off the beach, atmosphere. I had pork belly buns for an app and they were super. Two biscuit... More

The wait was over an hour but very well worth it. The food was excellent and the star couldn't have been any friendlier and accommodating. We have a 1 yr old who was being a little fussy and our waitress tried her hardest to please him. It worked!! The food was delicious and I highly recommend Mac's. Have a summer... More

Our third time back was not a charm. When you first enter you face the raw bar where a gentleman stands and shucks oysters and clams. My friend tried to ask a question and this unsmiling shucker just turned and walked away...not a great welcome. This year neither the food nor the service was up to snuff as we just... More

They redid the chowder a few years ago (left out the delicious herb - we think thyme) but it is still one of our faves. Hot and not too thick - very tasty. We shared a scallop burrito and asked them to leave out the rice. The scallops were so tender and juicy. And their is something so refreshing about... More
