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 year....reviews 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.
