Dined on March 16, 2016

Could not hear each other or our waitress for the noise level . The food was good but over-priced. Our waitress was very good but never told us her name - unless we just could not hear . Not romantic as I had hoped. My reservation specifically said it was for a birthday celebration, but no acknowledgement by the staff. Never was offered or saw a wine list.

Our favorite place

Dined on February 20, 2016

My wife and I love MAC's, the seafood specials, steaks, or just a light dinner. You can't pass up the salad and bread. My favorite dessert is the ice cream and goldbrick sauce.

Let down

Dined on February 14, 2016

Really had high hopes, Mac's is supposed to be top notch. Albeit Valentine's Day , when we arrived at 8:30 virtually no wait as everything was by reservation , so they had control of the flow. Sat in the bar for less than 15 minutes, the waitress was rough on the edges, knew nothing about wine and could be a better fit at a hamburger beer joint on Industrial Ave. She smelled like a pack of Camels (no filter) . The entire place was understaffed except for the three high school girls as greeters. No comment on them, they can't help being 17. The waiter was unskilled and out of his environment. I ordered the bone in prime rib and 20 minutes later he said verbatim " we don't have prime rib", not any apology and mainly no recommendation other than standing there with the deer and headlight look of either yell at me or order the cheeseburger . He disappeared most of the night. The food was OK, as the ribeye was was held together with fishing line, but the asparagus and potatoes were ok, we waited for over an hour for our food and there were empty tables when we got there and a whole lot more when we left. Never saw a manager, usually he would be in the back cooking if they were as understaffed as it appeared. This would actually be an excellent review for Golden Corral, but the tab would not be $$$ at the corral and they don't run out of prime rib on Friday's. This is the top of the wave but should suffice for prospective dinner's and no need to pay attention to evening casual.

One Of Our Favorite Restaurants

Dined on February 14, 2016

We go to Mac's on special occasions. Food is very good and the service is always excellent. The prices are also reasonable. Only issue is it's quite loud especially when it's crowded. Nevertheless we recommend this restaurant.

Nice neighborhood upscale restaurant

Dined on February 7, 2016

We hadn't visited Mac's in many years and decided to re-visit for a Saturday night special dinner. Our reservation was honored in a timely manner and all staff was courteous. The food came as ordered and at a good temperature. We both had a beef entrée and both needed seasoning. As the evening got busier we remembered why we don't frequent Mac's. The noise level is awful at peak times. They need to do something about the acoustics in that location. Otherwise, it was a pleasant experience.

Great food, good service, but way too noisy.

Dined on January 30, 2016

They really need to do something about noise abatement. It's difficult to carry on a conversation at the table, and the wait staff have to yell until they are hoarse to be understood. I like Mac's a lot. Have been going there for many years. But because of the noise level, we usually go far in advance of the dinner crowd. At 4:00 or 5:00 it's much quieter.

Consistently good food

Dined on January 30, 2016

MACs is our go to restaurant in Arlington for consistently good food. We have never had a bad experience eating at the restaurant. It can get pretty noisy but no one seems to mind. My only criticism would be that my husband asked for low salt on his fish and it was not really low salt. I think he should have asked for NO salt and it would have been right. Would be nice to have a few low sodium choices on the menu for all those people out there with blood pressure issues as there are plenty of them.

Dined on January 23, 2016

This was our first time at Mac's and chose to try it out because of the reviews. The food was good, not great (although the wild rice was very tasty!) The calamari was blah (Gordon Ramsey would have pitched a fit over the spring mix casually thrown on top of the calamari as a "garnish".) Our waiter was nice and friendly, but neglected to tell us of their specials, and was a bit overly enthusiastic towards removing our plates (did not ask if we were finished prior to reaching for them.). The support staff, especially Roman were excellent. All in all, it was a pleasant dinner but doubtful that we'd drive 40 minutes to eat there again. If we were in the neighborhood, then maybe. Oh....and once the restaurant began to fill the noise level was pretty high. Don't expect to be able to have a quiet dinner and private conversation.

food was good, service poor- no manager in site

Dined on January 19, 2016

We were celebrating a birthday. The waitress brought the wrong dinner. It was a full 20 minutes before she got her dinner, at which time my dinner was cold and half eaten. I feel the waitress could've done a better job to hurry up her meal Or get the manager involved. There was no effort to make this up to us, buy a drink or anything. We payed full price and it really ruined our time

Dined on January 18, 2016

We had really good attentive service. Food came out fast and was cooked as ordered. Crabfingers were a little pricey for what was served. My wife and I both ordered steaks and they were both cooked correctly. She had ribeye and I had the filet. My filet was almost too tender( I know a weird complaint) I am use to a steak being chewy and not mushy. Wife had key lime pie and she enjoyed it.

vip
Dined on October 11, 2015

I read the reviews before going, so I thought we were in for a treat since the reviews were so good. Well, I was mistaken! I was very disappointed in the food. I have never had a mozarella caprese salad which included cucumbers, olives, banana peppers and cornichons!! You don't have to add so many things to what should have been such a simple salad. Not to mention, the chicken piccata was smothered in mushrooms there were no capers that I could see or taste and just a small hint of lemon. Well, that is just the opposite of what a chicken piccata should be! Our server was very attentive and the food was served hot and fast, but those were the only high points of our dinner. Needless to say, we won't be returning.

Dinner at Mac's

Dined on September 6, 2015

As usual it was a terrific meal. It always seems to be just the way anyone would want it. Service was terrific, food terrific as well and it seemed to be quite reasonably priced. It was a very nice time as we have come to expect at Mac's.
