Description: 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.

Great place for fried oyster salad....and a glass of wine with friends. I have not been disappointed in any meal here and love sitting outside on a mid week afternoon sipping a beer or glass of wine. Great fresh food

Ate here day before Labor Day, for dinner. We waited approx 45 min to be seated outside. We knew in advance there would be a wait, no complaints.
Great mojitos, excellent sushi, very good service, place was very crowded, loved it.

Mac's Shack was the easiest place to find on my ride to Provincetown this weekend...even at night. Good parking, friendly wait staff, East Commercial St off Main St will lead you right to it.

Visited this restaurant about 10 times over the last several years. Its always had fresh "local" seafood and especially oysters (surprisingly, many of the restaurants serve oysters which are not from the Cape), but it hasn't always had the creativity of choices which it has now. The preparations have been getting progressively better over the past few years. On our recent visit, the beet salad was excellent, the Lazy lobster was interesting and very good and the Pan Roasted Halibut with lobster mashed potatoes was excellent. The wait is pretty long, but get a drink and enjoy the views.

Our second time there after a great meal last year. Everyone was mostly thrilled with their meals including the sushi (I believe I heard the best they'd every had as a comment), the raw oysters were phenomenal. The fried belly clams are the best on the cape. One of our party of 8 ordered salmon, not realizing there were 2 salmon offerings on the menu and she mentioned to the waitress that it was not what she was expecting. Even though it wasn't the restaurants or waitresses fault, they did not charge her for the meal! The bartender was extremely friendly and allowed all to have drinks while we waited on the outside benches. It's a rustic setting and a little rough getting in an out of the chairs on the patio as the floor is loose gravel/stone but on a summer night it's classic cape cod and I'm sure we'll go back next year.
