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

We went to Mac's Shack over the Columbus day weekend. It was steady with people but not crowded. We started with tuna maki and we were delighted. The rolls were so good and fresh. The tuna melted in your mouth. For my meal i ordered the fish tacos. I was not disappointed. The fish was fried but was so light... More

After a long day of cycling we stopped here for dinner. Fresh oysters. Succulent lobster. Great staff. I loved the ambiance and location.

I've eaten many clam chowders during my four months of the Cape, but Mac's version is outstanding: medium thick, filled with lots of clams, thinly sliced potatoes, topped off with delectable spices. Excellent! I heard about this place from a family member, so decided to track it down after a bike trip in the area, and am glad I did.... More

Upon my annual September visit to Cape Cod my son and grand daughter joined me for what is considered the best local Oysters. Two dozen 'Wellfleet Oysters', and without a doubt they are the best. Now let me also share our earlier stop in Brewster at Cobie's Seafood Restaurant for their large, 'Fried Clams', these are the very best I... More

Last spring I set off on a quest to find the best raw oysters on the Cape. Although I did not manage to hit every restaurant on my seafood bucket list, I did manage to try many of the top rated restaurants in the area. The result thus far? I've tried some darn good seafood in the past six or... More
