We visited here with some native New Englanders. Thankfully or we may never have found it. It is tucked away behind their parking lot. There is a bar outside and dining inside. Though I believe that you can eat outside also. We had a drink outside at a table on top of the crushed seashell floor. Didn't have much of... More

What a popular place in season! They take your name and give you the buzzer and if lucky you can get a seat at the bar. We tried four different cocktails that we loved. The bar tender was the most hardworking one I've ever seen. We ordered some appetizers at the bar as well. The main dining area is a... More

The fish here is very fresh. There are the old classics like fried clams, but there are also many new fish dishes. The sushi is also excellent. Finally there are some non-fish dishes for those that don't eat fish. Simply a superb fish restaurant.

Excellent food and service. Make a reservation in height of summer season! You will likely have to wait but it's worth it!

The best place to eat raw oysters and fried clams. Yum yum yum nice atmosphere, outside and the views from Mac's is beautiful. A must if you love raw oysters, clams and all the fried seafood the best and the sweetest fried clams ever.

I love every single thing about Mac's Shack. Ultra-premium cocktails, world-class sushi bar, non-fish options for the vegetarians or land-eaters, delicious kids menu, and yet a casual dress code where they will happily hand you a can of bug spray at the table if you are sitting outside and the mosquitoes are bothering you. Don't miss the Tuna Poke, the... More

I have never eaten their specialty sushi dishes, but all other times I have been to this restaurant, the dishes were tasty, the fish was fresh, and there are a variety of eating choices including good salads and soups.

Stumbled upon this eaterie during a trip around the Cape. Almost missed it because it doesn't look much from the road - glad we turned around. Varied and different menu - specialises in sushi, but my wife had a slab of cooked salmon on a salad bed. I had a Shack Burger (because I liked the sound of it!). Ambience... More

I ate at Macs on the Pier this summer. I had a lobster roll which was good--no complaints (I always compare lobster rolls to the one at Arnolds in Eastham and nothing is ever as good as that--but I still like to try out other places). So back on the Cape this past weekend (Arnolds was already closed for the... More

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.
