Mac's Seafood is one of those 'hole in the wall shacks' that anyone from outside of the area would never think to visit. The locals, however, happily look forward to finding the time to stop in. The food is always prepared perfectly, the fry batter...More

I eat here once a week. The fish chowder is award winning. Made of milk, cream and butter along with fresh ingredients. The Haddock dinner is ultimately the best you can get. Fresh huge chunks of Haddock in a proprietary tasty coating batter. Not once...More

Lobster rolls were actually full and not a tiny hot dog bun either. Good service. Friendly small town atmosphere. Ate here twice in 2 days.

This place was convenient, the employees were super, and the lobster rolls were incredibly fresh and tasty. :) We'll come back the next time we're in the neighborhood.

The atmosphere is casual, even simple, with a counter and a few tables. My part had lobster roll and fried clams, and both were perfect. We watched the cook remove the lobster meat from the shell - a sign of freshness. Staff were helpful and...More

If you want good, fresh lobster rolls loaded with lobster and not pink paste, this is the place to go. Mac's Seafood had definitely become a monthly staple in my diet. My mom is always looking for good lobster when she comes up. I'll be...More
