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 10pm. Our honest-to-goodness clam shack. Right on Wellfleet harbor, next to our original fish market.

“Great Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

Love their scallop and lobster rolls! Their lobster chowder was not so good, really thin and only one piece of lobster...and luke warm. Everything else I have had there has been great!

“Great family outing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Hands down, this is our kids first choice on our annual trip to Wellfleet. The food is consistently good. My favorite is the salmon, swordfish or tuna sandwich. If ordering lobster roll, I suggest requesting no lettuce. Otherwise, the lobster is skimpy. One treat for our family is having lobsters steamed and cracked by the market in the rear and eating them at home with the market's delicious seaweed salad plus sweet corn and salads.

“Great place for lunch at the pier”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

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.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

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.
