The food is quite good. However, the staff needs some professional training. When I had completed my meal, a waiter (not ours) came to our table, set a plate of empty oyster shells from another table right on top of my dinner plate. For a second, I was confused...what had just happened? Then she picked up both plates and left.... More

Great Food but should get a 3 dollar sign rating. Good beers on tap, sit at the bar to avoid waiting a long time for your table. Lobster poached in butter was delicious and beautiful but pricey. Cheapest entree $20 but worth the cost.

We had a late lunch at this Wellfleet charmer. I had the clam plate (whole bellies) and it was delicious. The french fries were plentiful and delicious. They have outdoor patio seating and indoor seating as well. The service was friendly and fast. I can recommend this place very highly.

This is the perfect spot for a summer night out. It has a laid back beachy feel with excellent seafood and sushi.

I can't say enough about Mac's. Ingredients are fresh. Recipes are innovative. Service is top notch. 5 star food with no attitude. For what you get, the prices are more than reasonable. I typically order Sushi for an appetizer or while waiting outside for a table. Once seated I'm more likely to order one of the specials knowing that it... More

Mac's offers delicious fish appetizers and entrees, no question. But it's their sushi that is amazing! Very creative combinations and freshly made right in front of you if you are at the sushi bar. Don't miss the Wave Roll, the Yellowtail Sashimi and the Spicy Tuna Tango Martini!

On our rainy day in Wellfleet we decided to give the famous Mac's Shack a try for lunch. What a great choice. Half of us had sushi and the other half had sandwiches and salads. Everyone was happy. Also, great service. Will go again for sure.

Decided to give it a try after a nice opening at Left Bank Gallery of abstract painter Kate Nelson. This is a very busy place. Happily got to park and checked in with 1.5 hour wait! Enjoyed some nice wines and Wellfleet oysters and little necks while enjoying company with other dinners in the queue. When seated our server Jaime... More

We have been coming to Mac's Shack as long as it's been in existence. We have a fond spot in our hearts for it, since it's been the traditional kickoff dinner to our Cape Cod vacations for many years. Their mojito is still the best we have ever had ANYWHERE. I'm ashamed to admit I let our not quite legal... More
