Mac's Fish and Chips

So I live in St Paul and about 5 years ago, we went to Mac's (under the ownership of the guy and his asian wife)...disappointed. Never returned.

Now, I just read on front page of "Eat" from Pio Press that it's been under new ownership for the past online are still debatable....and relatively inconclusive.

Has any on my CH-buddies been here within the last month or two?

  1. I haven't been there in the last month or two, but I have been there in the last year. I don't recommend it, especially if you went a few years back and didn't like it. I have only been twice, once years ago and a visit last fall, and I didn't see a big difference in quality. The french fries were a different cut, but still your standard Sysco frozen fry.

    1. I tried it a couple of years ago and gave not been back. I also do not live nearby, but if I did, I would give them another shot. What's the worst that can happen? You're out ten bucks and ate a few extra greasy calories.

      1. I was there less than a month ago. The new managers are Irish american. The only reason why I mention it is because there's a lot of irish themed things on the wall. And, someone from the Irish american community stopped in to distribute the local irish-american minnesota newspaper, while I was there.

        As for the food, it's a lot greasier than before. I wouldn't say it's fantastic. But it's not horrible either.
