We ate here when we found that Moby Dick's was closed (on Wednesday in September) and had a great lobster dinner. It's a walk-up to the window and order place that's BYOB, so we enjoyed our champagne and lobster at an outdoor picnic table watching...More

Love love love Mac's Seafood! Dine at a picnic table on the beach while eating their famous clam chowder or a lobster roll. The menu was so appealing I wish I had been able to come back many more times to try everything.

Visited Mac's on the Pier with my wife, daughter and 2 year old granddaughter for dinner. It's the perfect venue for an active 2 year old, great views of the harbor with open air dining, and food that suits the adult and child's appetite. I...More

Order at one window, pick up at another, then grab a picnic table overlooking the harbor. Food is good - lobster roll for my wife and fried calamari plate (french fries and cole slaw added) were tasty, although calamari was too heavily breaded. Good eats...More

Order at a window, wait for food, and carry to picnic table. Extremely crowded. My understanding is that it's always that way. No alcohol, but some people brought their own wine. Ice cream shop attached looked every bit as good as the seafood. Great views...More

I've had sandwiches and ice cream at Mac's on the Pier. I would definitely recommend the ice cream. The sandwich was a BBQ pulled pork sandwich that had too much BBQ sauce and the sauce was too sweet. My husband had a grilled chicken sandwich...More

This is a a great take-out place right on Mayo Beach. They have a wide range of food and ice cream, but the fried clams are the best.

There are two Mac's - an indoor sit-down restaurant, and a beach side shack.. Don't mistake the two. For a beach side shack, Mac's is GREAT!! We wnet twice in two days and were never disappointed - raw oysters (yay!), lobster mac and cheese (wow~),...More

You really can't go wrong on a sunny day at Mac's on The Pier. You order at the window, wait for an outdoor picnic bench on the ocean, and then get your food when they call you. This isn't fast food so it takes a...More

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.
