Restaurant details
Dining options: Lunch, Dinner
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.

When visiting Cape Cod, be sure to make a short side trip to Mac's on the Pier for lunch in Wellfleet. Very casual, outdoor eating area, walk-up ordering or to go, Mac's is right on a beach and next to a pier. Great views, very pleasant and out of all the lobster rolls we tried while in New England, this was the best. The lobster roll was served warm, with drawn butter—simply melt-in-your-mouth delicious.

Went there for lunch and dinner on the same day! We sampled the Salmon burger, Shrimp Linguini, Pulled Pork burrito, fish tacos and were consistently pleased. The prices were better than the typical Cape restaurant. The ice creams were tiny, unfortunately.

Delighted to see they had Moose Tracks, my favorite type of ice cream Plenty of picnic tables to sit and eat your cone while the sun sets behind the harbor.

Stopped by for lunch on a scorching afternoon. Was very pleased with the shaded seating at picnic tables and only waited 5 min for a table to open up. Time from placing order to actually eating was brief- maybe 7-8 minutes. Clam strips were so meaty and sweet- and plentiful! My SO enjoyed his lobster roll on a toasted bun and helped me tackle the abundant fries and strips. No seagulls begging at the tables this time. Very pleasant lunch.

Took a trip down to the harbor to get what was believed to be delicious seafood.... Unfortunately it was not.
The clam chowder was more of a clam broth with as little flavor as there were clams.
We tried the stuffed clams and wished we hadn't. Overpriced and terribly prepared.
Avoid these items and you may enjoy your meal.
Atmosphere and scenery were beautiful.
