My husband and I had driven by Mac's several times. We finally stopped and we were rewarded by a tasty meal. The "Just a Salad" was substantial with homemade dressing. The pasta was very good and so was the Beef Tenderloin. Mac's is in a lovely redecorated house and the wait staff was friendly and attentive.

We tried to find an evening reservation around town but we must have waited too long for Valentine's Day. So we settled for a lunch date instead of dinner. We chose Mac's because of its quaint, cozy, yet romantic atmosphere. Even though we we there for lunch, the dinner menu was also offered to us. My wife had the Linda's... More

This was a charming little restaurant downtown. The food was amazing! The flavors in the blue wedge salad were put together very well, & the stuffed gulf fish with fried green tomatoes was heaven. The staff was very friendly. I started raining heavily while we were eating & they even had an umbrella my husband could borrow to go get... More

Took my daughter out for lunch and shopping . Stopped here on a friends recommendation. Food and service were excellent . Soup of the day was crawfish with pepper jack cheese and it was definitely the best out of the entire meal . Try the tenderloin sandwich on Chibatta bread you won't be disappointed.

We were in Covington 2 years ago and we ate here then and on this visit. The food was very good. It would be nice if they served bread with the dinner considering they are pretty expensive. I asked for bread and they did bring some, but did not do it automatically.

This place is a keeper. Really nice feel from the moment you walk in until you wrap it up and leave. Service is timely, friendly and what's more, very personable. And the food, well the food is the highlight. Wonderful seared drum entrée with a medley of shrimp and crabmeat atop. Filet mignon done to perfection. Nice and affordable wine... More

Our appetizer of pulled pork with grits was very good. My hamburger was overcooked. I ordered medium and there was nothing even slightly pink about it. The toppings were good though. The fried oyster wrap was very good. The oysters were flash fried and very tasty. The cosmopolitan I ordered was very sweet... Tasted like a syrup not a juice,... More

Had dinner on a recent Saturday night at Mac’s on Boston with a 7 PM reservation. When we got there it wasn’t very crowded but filled up rapidly. Our server was prompt and efficient; she was above average despite being very busy. We started with wine, fried green tomatoes and shrimp and grits appetizers. The tomatoes were good but they...
