There are two Mac's - an indoor sit-down restaurant, and a beach side shack.. Don't mistake the two. For a beach side shack, Mac's is GREAT!! We wnet twice in two days and were never disappointed - raw oysters (yay!), lobster mac and cheese (wow~),...More

You really can't go wrong on a sunny day at Mac's on The Pier. You order at the window, wait for an outdoor picnic bench on the ocean, and then get your food when they call you. This isn't fast food so it takes a...More

Eat al fresco at Mac's on the pier. Excellent clam chowder. Friendly staff. Plenty of seating with amazing view of harbor. Good for vegetarians too!

The perfect menu and location for an authentic, old-school Cape Cod lunch. Excellent oysters, lobster rolls, and clam chowder, with a great view on the water. It's not fancy -- not even close -- but it's tasty. Just what the doctor ordered.

Mac's has great fresh fish -- something I don't eat. They do, however, cater to vegetarians with a number of choices. They don't care if I bring my own tofu salad to their picnic tables. The staff is friendly and efficient. The food is fresh....More

Always reliable, consistent Cape Cod fare. Someone always orders the whole belly clam roll. This visit we also ordered fish and chips. My daughter said Gordon Ramsay would give his blessing to that dish. My grilled scallops were juicy and grilled to perfection. It was...More

We stopped for lunch here on a Sunday. It is outdoor seating only but even on our cloudy morning the view made up for the clouds. We waited about 10 minutes for our food and it was very good! Definitely worth the visit at least...More

Great Seafood and More. Something for everyone. Incredibly fresh seafood. Highly recommend the Scallops and options for Fried or Grilled. A little pricey but worth it. Seated tables and we ended up sharing one with a local which was lovely to have an insiders knowledge...More

Food was delicious and the atmosphere is nice. The service is slow and part of our party had to wait over half an hour for their number to get called

Order at the window. Send the kids to scout a table on the sand. This is the place for a plate of fried clams with a slow summer sunset on the side. Steamers with broth and drawn butter, a lobster roll, a fried fish sandwich, onion rings--they're Cape Cod classics for a reason. There may be nothing better. But here's satisfaction for those who might crave something else: grilled tuna with summer vegetables and ponzu, a scallop burrito, fish tacos, Caribbean fish stew. And ICE CREAM, of course: sundaes and frappes, soft-serve and scooped - served every night until 9:30 pm. Our honest-to-goodness clam shack. Right on Wellfleet harbor, next to our original fish market.
