Order at a window, wait for food, and carry to picnic table. Extremely crowded. My understanding is that it's always that way. No alcohol, but some people brought their own wine. Ice cream shop attached looked every bit as good as the seafood. Great views...More

I've had sandwiches and ice cream at Mac's on the Pier. I would definitely recommend the ice cream. The sandwich was a BBQ pulled pork sandwich that had too much BBQ sauce and the sauce was too sweet. My husband had a grilled chicken sandwich...More

This is a a great take-out place right on Mayo Beach. They have a wide range of food and ice cream, but the fried clams are the best.

You really can't go wrong on a sunny day at Mac's on The Pier. You order at the window, wait for an outdoor picnic bench on the ocean, and then get your food when they call you. This isn't fast food so it takes a...More

Eat al fresco at Mac's on the pier. Excellent clam chowder. Friendly staff. Plenty of seating with amazing view of harbor. Good for vegetarians too!

The perfect menu and location for an authentic, old-school Cape Cod lunch. Excellent oysters, lobster rolls, and clam chowder, with a great view on the water. It's not fancy -- not even close -- but it's tasty. Just what the doctor ordered.

Mac's has great fresh fish -- something I don't eat. They do, however, cater to vegetarians with a number of choices. They don't care if I bring my own tofu salad to their picnic tables. The staff is friendly and efficient. The food is fresh....More

Always reliable, consistent Cape Cod fare. Someone always orders the whole belly clam roll. This visit we also ordered fish and chips. My daughter said Gordon Ramsay would give his blessing to that dish. My grilled scallops were juicy and grilled to perfection. It was...More

Order at the window. Send the kids to scout a table on the sand. This is the place for a plate of fried clams with a slow summer sunset on the side. Steamers with broth and drawn butter, a lobster roll, a fried fish sandwich, onion rings--they're Cape Cod classics for a reason. There may be nothing better. But here's satisfaction for those who might crave something else: grilled tuna with summer vegetables and ponzu, a scallop burrito, fish tacos, Caribbean fish stew. And ICE CREAM, of course: sundaes and frappes, soft-serve and scooped - served every night until 9:30 pm. Our honest-to-goodness clam shack. Right on Wellfleet harbor, next to our original fish market.
