Everytime we go to the beach at Port Stanley, we inevitably become patrons of Mackies, simply because they're right on the beach, they sell all the cheap foods you're looking for (hot dogs, burgers, fries, etc.) and at cheap prices. The food is actually pretty good, considering what you'd expect from such a busy place (the line-ups came be loooooong).... More

I visit this place many more times than I review it. Food is always made fresh on the spot, and is always tasty. This place makes you feel at home, come in with your shorts and flip flops. You don't have to be fancy. They have been in business for many years for a reason. Love that secret sauce.

Always make a stop here during our visits to Ontario. The famous Orangeaid is the best. Line ups might look long but they serve everyone through quickly & always with a smile.

My mom came to Port Stanley when she was young. She left her office job at noon and hopped on the London - Port Stanley train. The service men would ride the same train. When I was young she would tell me the stories of Mackie fries and Orangeade on the beach. As an adult we would go together. She... More

They have been there for 50+ years for a reason! The frys are as good as frys get, the signature 'Mackie sauce' is great on the fry's. The Orangade drink is the other 'signature' item and always refreshing. Good ice cream and fresh made milkshakes with real ice cream!! The rest of the menu is typical and rather ordinary, burgers,...

Made my regular visit to Mackie's while visiting home and as usual it did not disappoint. The fries were delicious, the onion rings perfectly seasoned and of course I had the famous Mackie's orange-aid. It's got a great location on the beach and if you go during a weekday there are barely any lines. I highly recommend this place! One... More

Mackie's is not trying to compete with McDonald's but those of us who grew up around here and ate there everytime we went to the beach have invested memories of their "special sauce" and delicious Orangeade. This was before McDonalds and families eating out on a regular basis. It may not be gourmet dining but every summer I have to... More

This place is historic and has long been a favorite for beach goers. Unfortunately the food is basic awful stuff you would expect to receive from a high school cafeteria. The kids will love it, you wont. Great Views though

So I read all the reviewers and decided to try famous Mackie’s food and I was extremely disappointed. I ordered fries and burger. Fries were very dry . I noticed that they put big pieces of fries on top and small and burned pieces on the bottom. Burger was very thin and NOT tasty. Even McDonald’s burger is better. The... More
