I had lunch today at Mac's Diner in Rochester. This was the first time I had frequented the restaurant. I ordered a salad, Dimitri's Famous Village Salad. In a heartbeat I'd order this salad again. The Greek dressing that was served with it was creamy and delicious. Tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, green peppers, kalamata olives, Salonika peppers and Feta cheese. Delicious... More

Very good food and cute outdoor patio. Greek owned and several menu items are greek dishes. Chicken was very flavorful and tender. Had the chicken gyro and the chicken on rice both delicious. Service prompt and attentive.

Had the Greek omelet and it was delicious. The gyro was really good. One plus is that they had gluten free bread.

Four stars for the oatmeal cake! Different and good. But, had to ask for extra hot water, and no plain black tea. I'm not a tea snob, but I know Earl Grey isn't just plain black tea. Everything else is great. They just need to tune it a little...water with meal, and better tea selection for breakfast. We will be... More

If you are visiting the Mayo Clinic, this is the right place to unwind and have a healthy dinner. Prices are very reasonable and the service was excellent.

We sat outside waited 15 minutes and nobody came to help. We went inside and they said someone would come to help us. After 10 more minutes we left very poor service.

I've been eating at Mac's for over 25 years. For a long time it was consistently good - one of my favorite places. Lately, however, I've become consistently disappointed. Breakfast is still good, but my favorite used to be their Greek entrées for lunch/dinner. It used to be that their baked hummus and gyros were marvelous - served with nice... More

Three of us had lunch on the patio in great June weather. The food was average but fresh and the service was OK. Prices are reasonable. Good for getting out of all the Rochester buildings and people watching.

Thank FriscoScott
