Mac's Soda Bar is a great little place for breakfast on a Sunday morning or clamcakes and chowder anytime. Home style place with beachy atmosphere...little bit diner, little bit dining room. Extremely reasonable prices and the food is always good!

Mac's is half a mile from busy Route 6 and on the way to Sconticut Neck. The clams are shucked fresh every day, the batter is crisp and the french fries truly excellent. Great place for lunch or dinner any day.

Everything this guy cooks from burgers to omlets to chicken pot pie is excellent. This is a local landmark and has served the town for over 50 years. It's your classic " greasy spoon" diner type food but always good, fresh and generous portions. It's a family run operation and they work hard. I go once a month or more... More

Breakfast here every item on the plate gets 100% attention. Gently cooked eggs, tender spongy pancakes, you question if the sausage links are homemade, even the homefries are perfect. Muffins homemade they grill them for you. Owner/chef shows you his respect of food and his customers. First visit you will be surrounded by the locales that know good food! Small... More

Having grown up in Fairhaven I am always impressed that this place is still operating. A little different from the soda fountain but a great little local cafe. Excellent specials of both seafood and Portuguese specialties. Don't expect anything fancy, but this is a great local eatery. Try the kale soup, fish sandwich or cacoila.

Mac's is a "neighborhood" restaurant. Nice place to go for breakfast or lunch. Javon has been the owner/chef for many, many years.

This was a nice stop for lunch. It is a small neighborhood place with friendly waitstaff and a nice menu. The menu ranged from soup and sandwiches to fresh fish plates. I had the lobster roll and it was delicious. Everyone in our party walked away satisfied! I would definitely eat there again.
