We were exploring Wellfleet on a disappointingly rainy, windy day. Stopped at Macs on a whim. We sat at the covered and heated outdoor bar. It was fantastic! We managed to sit with outr feet on the sea shells but stayed dry and warm. The oyster flutes were awesome, craft cocktails delicious, and the bartender was fun and friendly.

We were seated at the Sushi bar because the restaurant was so crowded and were delighted by our opportunity to interact with the staff and sample both sushi and local fare. Halibut sushi! Oyster shooters in Russian vodka with sour cream and caviar! Bubbly prosecco! What a fine time we had in this very rustic and simple establishment that directs... More

Beautiful September day in Boston, so we drove to the Cape, intending to go to P-Town, but the AAA guide listed an interesting place in Wellfleet that sounded just about right. The thought of patio dining on such a great day was too tempting. Mac's Shack looks kind of funky, and it is, which is part of the charm. I... More

Ate here in mid September and we were very satisfied. Sat at the bar and the service was awesome. The oysters on the half shell were very clean,fresh and tasty. My wife had sushi which was also excellent. Broiled scallop dinner was very good.

A real surprise - no finer, fresher seafood so reasonably priced. Not a fancy spot but now a "must" when we visit Cape Cod. My husband said it was the best clam chowder he enjoyed all weekend. I began with a delicious Caesar salad with white anchovies and I was "hooked"! We looked forward to a weekend of eating and... More

Great spot by the bay! Delicious oysters, wonderful sushi dishes and cold beer! The mix of raw bar and tons of sushi is great for a quick snack, lunch or dinner. Seating outside is wonderful on a beautiful day on the Cape.

OK, where should I begin? From the unfriendly hostess that never cracked a smile, to the uncomfortable seating outside, to the food runner with her long frizzy hair NOT put up in a ponytail and wearing flip flops(isn't this a health hazard?) to the space shot server, to worst of all the most horrible fish sandwich I have ever had...

I had a lobster roll, which was pretty good, but I thought overpriced for what I saw on the rest of the market, but I also ordered miso soup. It seems like this place can't figure out what it wants to be- a seafood shack or a sushi restaurant.

Fun, happening place with a great, eclectic menu that ranged from fresh Wellfleet oysters and sushi to amazing fish entrées caught just hours before they are prepared.Being on the Cape after labor day we found most places stopped serving at 9, so we were grateful this gem is open and serving until 10pm. Our server, DJ, was a knowledgeable, experiences... More
