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

The fries are always great, the burgers DELICIOUS, and their fry sauce is amazing...... I go for the Orangeade but always find myself eating the food and looking through the wall of fame. Truly an amazing place and still a classic. Never change!!!!

Went to Mackies on the advice of an older friend. Maybe in its day it was good. I am sure she has not been there in QUITE a while. HORRIBLE. Had two orders of Perch. Smallest piece of fish I ever had.Two pieces were a joke. Dry coating and over cooked. Fries were dry and tasteless, and my guess over... More

Typical fast food menu but sit outside and get a beautiful view of the lake. Good service with little wait time,

Just came in this place early this morning and after a great walk along the shores of Port Stanley, we thought of dropping by for something to eat since its almost lunch. We ordered one hamburger with fries and the 2pc yellow perch with fries and the orange juice they are famous for. Spent $20 in total for a very... More
