My family of six had a wonderful Italian dinner at Mac's. We've been coming at this restaurant for years and the quality doesn't change. Service is good, food is good and you can bring your own liquor. Bring cash.

Great Italian food and everything was fresh and tasted home made. The salad was plentiful and dressing was superb. The gravy was just spicy enough. We had a small party and the gave us a room the was just private enough.
