“A favourite with the young crowd.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

My grandchildren love this place, as they can get anything with fries, & then go & play games indoors. The outside seating area adds to the attraction, as it faces the beach. The food is mostly Burgers, Hot Dogs & Fries, but a tradition for locals.

Reviewed November 2, 2012

you have to try Mackie's when at Port Stanley...their fries are amazing. They have been an icon on the beach for a long time.

“BEST FRIES IN PORT STANLEY...AND THE WORLD!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Everyone loves Mackies, the fries are delicious, the ice cream (from Shaws) is amazing and the price is right. Plus winter or summer it's a great destination because you're right on the beach looking out at beautiful lake Erie. The only thing I don't recommend is the orangeaid - some people love it but it's not my thing at all!

“Mackie's Never Dissapoints”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

This review may be a little bias as going to Mackie's for fries and Orangeade has been a family tradition for over 50 years, making this review longgggg overdue. Again, this past Labour Day Mackie's delivered. Best fries on the beach and nothing even close to them until you hit fries under the bridge in Sarnia for that matter.

Still have the fantastic secret Orange sauce that our little guy has dubbed "Orange Ketchup". This place is a must visit in Port Stanley or even if you are just visiting the surrounding St Thomas area...make the short scenic drive to Port for these gems.

Thanks again for the great fries Mackie's. And to Owen who works there...thanks for your big smile for our little guy especially at the end of what must have been a long day and for sure a long summer for you and your staff.
