Description: 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.

We have a boat in Weelfleet harbor and love to stop by Macs either before or after a day of boating.

I think the best food here are the burritos. This trip we had the fish burrito, but we have also enjoyed the chicken and the jerk pork and loved them.

Someone in out party had the grilled salmon wrap. It was so good and juicy and flavorful. She was very happy with her choice.

We also had a standard fish and chips. It was not greasy and we received a good sized piece of cod.

Nice location, so-so food. The Cape needs something to raise the bar as this little place demonstrates. The menu offerings are fairly standard as is the resultant product. As we were a family of eight, none of us left with a "can't wait to return" take on the place.

What makes this place special it the freshness of its food. The oysters on the half shell, the steamed lobsters, the fried fish are all fresh and delicious. You place your order, grab a picnic table on the beach, listen for number to be called and dig in.

We went as a family and tried both oysters, clam chowder, burgers and kids pasta. I would say the burger and probably the oysters were best. The clam chowder was decent, but nothing special (I you want excellent clam chowder go to Chatham Pier).

We paid close to 60 USD, which I think is ok considering it was the dozen oysters that inflated the bill...

I ordered the whole-belly clams basket. The clams were the good and numerous; the fries were not the best but plentiful; the tiny cole slaw portion was fairly bland. Likely you are paying for the pretty view. The big picnic tables are best for big groups. The girls taking orders are nice. $29 with drink for one person.
