Stopped by for lunch on a scorching afternoon. Was very pleased with the shaded seating at picnic tables and only waited 5 min for a table to open up. Time from placing order to actually eating was brief- maybe 7-8 minutes. Clam strips were so...More

Took a trip down to the harbor to get what was believed to be delicious seafood.... Unfortunately it was not. The clam chowder was more of a clam broth with as little flavor as there were clams. We tried the stuffed clams and wished we...More

Great food mid-day with a view of the harbor. Inexpensive but delicious. Picnic tables with umbrellas for shade.

Mac on the Pier is essentially across the street from the pier in Wellfleet. The seafood was good. We ate outside with a nice view of the bay. The prices were what you would expect for Cape Cod.

It is almost hypnotizing to watch the oystermen (and women) walk out into the bay and harvest the oysters that you are already enjoying, and one gets a ringside view from Mac's on the Pier. And, if one loves oysters, the Wellfleet oysters are really...More

Best casual quality dining on the Cape with wide range of fresh seafood and non seafood fare. Always highest quality seafood prepared in many ways. BYOB at picnic tables on the beach overlooking the Wellfleet Harbor...are you kidding!

We were vacationing on Cape Cod recently and needed some seafood for lunch. We had heard great things about Mac's and decided to try it. Boy were we happy we did! It was great! We would go back again and again.

It doesn't get any better than this during the summer (spring or fall too) - come to this place as you are. Lots of fish dishes, great chowder, lots of sandwiches and lots of salads, along with tall cold beverages. You place your order and...More

We went here several times. Food and service was very good and nice hours if between meal times. Also lovely location on the water. Got ice cream at the stand. It was a disaster. Hard ice cream but way too soft. Cone melted all over...More

After a day at the beach with the kids we love to get in line at Macs On the Pier and try to decide what to order for their long menu. The scallop burrito with clam chowder was excellent!

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 10pm. Our honest-to-goodness clam shack. Right on Wellfleet harbor, next to our original fish market.
