“Stop for dinner here”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

The layout of the restaurant is appealing. The service is very friendly. The steak dinner was tender and delish, and the chicken dinner was yummy. The dessert choice was very good too. They had live entertainment which was excellent, a young guy on guitar and a young woman singing beautifully. Mac's have a pretty good selection of food. We would happily recommend this restaurant. If you go, say to the waitress, "I see you have great reviews on the internet...." and we're sure you won't be disappointed.

“Excellent Steak!”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

One of the best steaks I have had in a longtime with great service and a live group singing background music. Highly recommend.

“Great meal. Glad we checked the reviews cos the place looked closed”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

We were after a good steak and this was the place according to Trip Advior reviews. We saw the place and they had a "yes we are open" sign out the front. We thought it looked empty then realised people were in the back of the restaurant! The front area outside was closed and dark. The funny thing is that, should they have put a couple of lights and heaters out front, it would have looked inviting enough for us (and no doubt others) to have walked in... Anyway after we went in we saw the stark lighting and canteen table seating but kep the faith to discover a fantastic meal, cooked to perfection and really friendly and obliging staff. The steaks were great and starters and dessert brilliant. All this and BYO too with a bottle shop next door! Let's hope they make it cosy and attractive. I'm sure the investment will be worth it.

“Honest review from a local”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

We went to Mac,s steakhouse and ordered seasonal vegetables with the meals as we received meat and potatoes on the plant and found the seasonal vegetables were a bowl of potatoes with a four small pieces of parsnip on top. When we said we were not happy with the vegetables and asked for them to be taken back the whole of the staff spent the rest of the time we were in the place taking about us!!
