Mac's has a great atmosphere. There is usually a wait. The best plan is to reserve your seats. Like Meat? This is the place! say hi to Mike.

We arrived to this popular restaurant and knew there would be a wait time because we didn't make a reservation. There was a 45 minute wait. When we were brought to our table by the friendly hostess we were greeted by a friendly waitress. We ordered popcorn shrimp for our appetizer. It came out quickly and they were delicious! We...

Excellent beef. Great casual dining. I also buy fresh beef to grill at home. Ask for any rub so the beef marinates before grilling. The grill masters will give you tips on best cooking practices for your cut of meat.

We dined here with 7 for lunch during a recent college graduation weekend most recently but are repeat satisfied customers. Especially during busy weekends, the location is great as it is just outside the main downtown areas of Lewiston and Auburn and not always as packed and better than many there. Mac's is a casual, friendly, american steakhouse and bar... More

We stopped here for lunch. Friendly server. Western-themed décor. Large portions. I ordered the Cajun steak and cheese grinder with mushrooms, onions and green peppers ($10.00). It came with a pickle and ample French fries which were decidedly different from the norm, but delicious! It was very hearty! I could only finish half my sandwich. My friend had the buckskin...

I have had hit or miss experiences with Macs Grill. Sometimes the steak is tender, another time like shoe leather. If you're strictly a meat and potatoes kind of person you may really like it, but I prefer a bit more variety, with maybe a few vegetarian offerings. The atmosphere is pleasant, but the food is average at best.

This is not the place for a cozy dinner, but it is a great choice for a good dinner. My husband and I have been trying out new dining places all winter. This is one I would come back to. The ribeye steak was tasty and cooked perfectly, medium rare. Had the baked potato and it was a great size,... More

This restaurant is owned by a local family, who put quality food and service above all else. We personally know the owners and most of the staff, who are very personable and experienced. The owners and general manager are our friends who we visit with on every trip. They have a western style 2 level restaurant, good lighting, comfortable environment... More

We are a high energy restaurant with a vibrant neighborhood bar and grill appeal. Though we are known for our steaks, you will find there is something on the menu to please anyone in your group. We serve Choice Black Angus beef which is hand cut daily on the premises. Whether you are looking for a full course meal, or just out for a cold beer and a great burger, you are sure to feel right at home. So, throw on your most comfortable jeans and join us for a great meal and lots of laughs. Just a couple miles from downtown Auburn, you can't miss our log cabin featuring a comfortable deck for outside dining.
