We stayed 3 weeks on the Cape - & it was our first experience there! - so we spent lots of time going from great restaurant to great restaurant. This is one we'd have returned to all the more often, if only we'd had the time. Great food, fun atmosphere, get there early or late. We heard that you should... More

We loved this place last year and made it our first restaurant visit of this trip. They told us it would be 1hr 20 to 1hr 45 minute wait for a table even though when we phoned and asked what time to arrive for a large party (7 people) and a short wait, we had been told 6:15 was good.... More

Great seafood, Mac's has that real Cape Cod summer atmosphere. From sushi to a raw bar your tastebuds will be jumping with joy. You can walk from there through Wellsfleet's quaint village. Believe me Mac's is a must.

We were a party of five for a late night dinner, each one of us loved our meal! The steamers were fabulous and quite large. Our seafood dishes were each prepared uniquely, poached lobster with a sauce and balsamic tomato type salad was delicious! Also the scallops were amazing. If your looking for something a little different, this is your... More

We have been in Wellfleet several time each season for years and have relative in town but had never tried Mac's Shack until this summer. It was very good. I had broiled cod and my wife had a Lobster dish. Both were excellent. With a glass of house wine each the tab with tip was close to 3 figures. The... More

The burger and flounder BLT were very good, flavorful and ample portions. Sadly, the fish tacos both fried and broiled fish were terrible; the fried fish was mostly breading and little to no "meat", the broiled fish tasteless. Both were small portions of fish (which was ok due to poor quality) Presentation of the additions to make the taco so... More

This is our third summer that we have had the pleasure of dinning at Max Shack. It is a beachy easy going atmosphere but the food is Five Star. The freshness of the fish is second to none. We had oysters and sushi, my entree was bluefish over risotto, my son had linguini with a macadamia nut pesto OMG!!. This... More

Can't miss the variety and simple pleasures of this small chain. Love the lobster bisque and the chance to sit outside at picnic tables and enjoy the harbor view. Also went to Mac's seafood market in Truro, where the quality of the fish was just beautiful. Because our last name begins with "Mac" we had to buy T-shirts for the... More

Excellent place for sushi and poke. Unusual combinations and the fish was fresh and tasty. My Mom had the fried fish sandwich and she loved it! Really special - lobster beignets. YUM!

Smoked Bluefish Pate is the best I have ever had. Caesar salad with added grilled salmon was absolutely delicious. Salmon melted in my mouth. Cooked perfectly! Visited here several times before and will be back

Mac's Shack is all about the pure goodness of the season's local harvest. Your taste buds will shout "hello summer!" Ice cold Wellfleet Oysters, tender lobster dripping with butter, mouthwatering sushi, and the freshest seafood served on the Cape - made exactly how you like it. This is the kind of food that makes you happy.
