I love this place ! Never disappointed. I have been here multiple times. I like the lunch hour better. It's more quiet , faster service. Dinner is busy and very noisy. Most of the noise coming from the bar area. The mixed drinks are amazing !

Found this amazing restaurant after being recommended by the hotel staff. I chose the haddock and shrimp dinner and my wife chose the 6 oz sirloin. Our meals included the choice of soup or salad, my wife had the Chicken Pot Pie which was very tasty. The fish was cooked to perfection with a light panko breading and lobster sauce.... More

Deanne our server was AWESOME! Very friendly, pleasant and is just a fantastic person. Started with appetizer of Buffalo Chips which was home made potato chips with chicken, Bleu cheese & hot sauce which were good. I had special lobster Mac and cheese and I chose cheeseburger soup instead of salad. Both were good and very filling! Hubby had Wyatt... More

The decor is ok. People are nice. Food is good but not great. I had the Ruben which was described as "piled with Corned Beef". Not exactly piled. In fact a little chincy... Wife's steak sandwich was pretty good. Steak cooked perfectly. Fries were a bit undercooked and greasy. All in all quite good. We'll be back.

Went for an early Sunday dinner and sat at the bar. The two bartenders on staff were very nice and attentive. Started off with two appetizers, one was the stuffed mushrooms and the other were the coconut shrimp. Both were absolutely delicious. For dinner I had the salmon which was good however overcooked. It was an overall good experience and... More

I first went to Mac's about 20 years ago and had a fabulous steak. More recently I have gone twice and been deeply disappointed - didn't stick to steak! A general warning: if you see "boneless short ribs" on a menu, skip it. It is not short ribs, it is chuck steak. I know. I made the same mistake twice.... More

We go to Mac's Grill all the time (only live about 1 1/2 miles from the restaurant). Very good food, friendly casual environment and great wait staff. They have pub style seating with a very nice bar on one side of the restaurant and more traditional table seating on the other side. Highly recommend the restaurant.

I wrote you an email to explain our disappointment in the way my grandsons rib eye was cooked but you never responded, at the restaurant the server Dinah was superb, your manager never came to our table even after she was aware of the problem. I have been to your restaurant several times but this is the first time a... More

Mac's has good offering of beef and some nice appetizers. The quality of the good is much better than average. Great service and a nice offering of beers including Allegash White one of my favorites. It is good for groups and families. It can be a bit loud when they are busy...so not a romantic dinner for two place. The... More
