The Shack is now closed for the winter. Thanks for a great season. We will see you in the spring.
Mac’s Gift Cards
Named in honor of the best simple suppers of a Cape Cod summer, Mac's Shack is all about the pure goodness of the season's local harvest.
Mac is in the kitchen here, where he updates old-fashioned favorites—like his grandmother's cracker-crusted bluefish—with a light touch, and creates new classics from grilled oysters with absinthe to halibut in saffron lobster broth.
Nightly specials explore a world of flavors: Sea scallops with green curry. Skate in browned butter. Crudos and ceviches. Still, Mac always comes home to the true taste of our fresh daily catch.
Up front, Stephen-San turns prime cuts of fish into sushi that draws a devoted crowd. But a juicy strip steak with a sparkling crunch of Wellfleet sea salt explains why omnivores love us, too.
That copper-topped beauty out front is the bar. Cocktails with homemade infusions, a good wine list, and cold beer on tap—all within reach of our Wellfleet oysters and clams. We shuck to order.
The whitewashed dining room fills a 19th century house that was once a nautical shop. The lobsterman on our roof is an homage to the Lobster Hutt, circa 1971.
And we do dig a good clamshack. That's why there's Mac's on the Pier.
I'm a fan of Mac's takeout on the Town Pier. The best view of any clam shack I know."
Mark Bittman, The New York Times
