We read all the reviews and had high expectations for an awesome meal. This place is small and friendly. A very local place. They sell fresh raw or cooked fish . The reviews said they have great chowder. So we ordered the sandwich/soup special. $12 lobster roll and a cup of chowder. The lobster roll was with lobster salad. I... More

Food was good and definitely the fish was fresh. Service was excellent and staff very friendly. Portion of fish was substantial and fries were fresh not frozen. Coleslaw deemed to be the food service standard. The only drawback for me and it's just a personal preference is that the fish is breaded where I prefer the batter method on my... More

We keep returning for the delicious haddock sandwich, lobster rolls, cooked lobsters, scallops, mussels,etc! The haddock fillet is ALWAYS larger then the bun, made to order with the freshest ingredients. Lobster roll is ALL lobster and delicious. Orders are always spot on and quickly received. Staff are friendly and efficient! This place gets hopping, but there's never been an issue... More

They have added a few tables but we still prefer to eat at the bar. This is a retail seafood store with outstanding, fresh, market priced product. Sandwich or plate of great haddock, shrimp, scallops, fries, chowder, and slaw. Service is fast and friendly, serving hot, generous portions, No dress code, comfortable, friendly.

Mac's seafood is a small little place on Minot Ave. Don't let that deter you. Their lobster roll is fantastic. Their chowders wonderful. While I try not to do fried foods, friends tell me theirs can't be beat. One of the best parts about Mac's is the FRESH seafood counter where you can buy salmon, haddock, shrimp, scallops, coleslaw, seafood... More

Mac's is in the conversation about the best lobster roll on the planet. The pros are that they serve fresh fish in a corner of the restaurant/store, and they have their own lobster tank with live lobster for sale. So, it doesn't get fresher than that. I'm not a fan at all of the "gussied up" lobster roll, and Mac's... More

Yeah, I know. It's on a commercial stretch in Auburn and you may pass right by. But Don't. Excellent seafood. Fantastic fried clams and chowder. Once a month we try to make it out.
