We ate at Mac's Shack in 2010 and were underwhelmed. Didn't hate it, just didn't see what all the fuss was about. We also tried Pearl that trip and were very enthusiastic. Then last summer we returned to Pearl and weren't quite so excited. Sometimes I think we just lose interest when the novelty wears off, which isn't necessarily a comment on the quality of the restaurant. Also, everyone in my family is a fussy eater, each in their own special way, which can sometimes mean that a terrific restaurant won't work for us because there's so little for at least one person to eat (eg Blackfish and my husband). But I digress. . .
Anyway, so many people are so enthusiastic about Mac's Shack that I'm thinking maybe we should give it another try. But when I really focus on the reviews, what people seem to really like are the drinks and the sushi. My husband doesn't eat sushi. Even sushi with cooked fish won't really work for dinner for him. So, can we get a consensus (ha ha ha) on the non-sushi fish options at Mac's Shack? Worth driving from Chatham for or really, we can do just as well elsewhere?
