We went to Mac's Shack over the Columbus day weekend. It was steady with people but not crowded. We started with tuna maki and we were delighted. The rolls were so good and fresh. The tuna melted in your mouth. For my meal i ordered the fish tacos. I was not disappointed. The fish was fried but was so light... More

After a long day of cycling we stopped here for dinner. Fresh oysters. Succulent lobster. Great staff. I loved the ambiance and location.

I've eaten many clam chowders during my four months of the Cape, but Mac's version is outstanding: medium thick, filled with lots of clams, thinly sliced potatoes, topped off with delectable spices. Excellent! I heard about this place from a family member, so decided to track it down after a bike trip in the area, and am glad I did.... More

Upon my annual September visit to Cape Cod my son and grand daughter joined me for what is considered the best local Oysters. Two dozen 'Wellfleet Oysters', and without a doubt they are the best. Now let me also share our earlier stop in Brewster at Cobie's Seafood Restaurant for their large, 'Fried Clams', these are the very best I... More

Last spring I set off on a quest to find the best raw oysters on the Cape. Although I did not manage to hit every restaurant on my seafood bucket list, I did manage to try many of the top rated restaurants in the area. The result thus far? I've tried some darn good seafood in the past six or... More

The outside might not look like much but the food inside will convince you otherwise. This is a great place to eat. We both had whole lobsters, me with a side of steamers and my wife the oysters pictures. Everything was wonderful. Our server D.J. was delightful and very knowledgeable about the menu. This is a place to make a... More

We stopped in the Mac Shack after the beach for a drink at their great outside bar, and are we glad we did - We came back that night for dinner! They have great drinks that are a lot of fun. We both had the Blueberry Vodka (Only made in Nantucket) and Lemonade over ice - heavenly and so refreshing!... More

Glad we decided to stop at Mac's Shack for dinner. While we had to wait about 30 minutes it was well worth the time. From soup to entree to dessert, everything was well prepared and delicious. The bar scene is also very vibrant!

Having not found the old tavern while hiking the Great Island Trail, my buddy and I were in search of local beer and local full-bellied fried clams. Mac's did the trick. Best clams in memory plus a delicious amber made in Dennis. BTW Mac's is batting 1.00 Visited three locations over two days! I'll be back at Mac's.

Admittedly we haven't tried a lot if sushi places on Cape Cod, but Mac's Shack is a good one! We've had great sushi elsewhere, Mac's is fresh and the variety is good. I had the poke dinner and and salmon maki roll, my wife had the High Roller and New York roll. For fun we had onion rings too -... More
