Mac’s is amazing for celiac. I’ve been going here for my entire life but ever since being diagnosed with celiac, I can still go there. In the past year, they have made adjustments so the ENTIRE fryer is gluten free. Every single fried thing is safe (seafood, fries, etc). The menu marks which things are gluten free and then just make sure to tell your server that it’s an allergy and they will prevent cross contamination. The waitstaff is very knowledgeable and nice!! Never gotten sick here and I go about 5 times during my trip!!! Highly recommend :) and overall, the food is just very yummy in general!

It sounds like they are slowly converting most of their menu to be GF - all foods that go in the fryer are GF ONLY. They do not serve any fried food that is not GF.

I have never had so many GF options I nearly ordered the entire menu. The waitress went above and beyond to walk us through the GF options and tell us how safe everything was. The food was AMAZING - my wife can eat gluten and she said that their fried food was some of the best she’s ever had even though it’s GF.

Went twice to this place, had an acceptable gluten free experience the first time. The second time I came for dinner instead of lunch and I ordered an item on the menu marked gluten free and requested it gluten free. It came out with some sort of batter coating on it. I asked the waitress who was unsure with what it was and said it might be “just flour”. That’s a big red flag because I asked for it gluten free. The staff was good the first time I went for lunch but utterly clueless the second time.

Good with a good number of GF options. HOWEVER there is at least one error in the items marked GF (the tamago is not GF). Have eaten here with my celiac son without incident but as always, know your stuff.

Every time we stay on the cape we make the 45 minute drive to get to Mac's more than once. They are one of the few places that has gluten free sushi near here. They also have great salads. The staff is very knowledgable and my sister and I have never gotten sick at Mac's.

Sushi and seafood spot. Part of the larger Mac's group, but the Wellfleet restaurant. GF clam chowder was thin but yummy!

this rating is for Macs On the Pier on Wellfleet Harbor. it's a clam shack but none of the fried stuff is GF. the chowder is creamy and GF and good! All the soups are GF. My GF daughter had the shrimp cocktail and corn on the Cobb with chowder. it's a seafood shack but it's pricey.

Mac's went above and beyond when my aunts and I went for dinner. I'd say at least 1/3 of their menu is GF, so there were more options than I'm used to! GF items are clearly marked on the menu, making it very easy to peruse. Our waitress (Janci) informed me that the owner has Celiac Disease, which increased my confidence in their protocol to minimize cross-contamination.

Their clam chowder is thick, creamy, and absolutely delicious. I'd been craving safe sushi since being diagnosed with Celiac, and this really hit the spot (tuna, mango, avocado, black tobiko)! They had so many options! They also have GF soy sauce. They had a flourless chocolate cake that was perfectly dense, sweet, and rich without being too much so. The ONLY negative is that they didn't have anything for me to dip my sushi in except for the soy sauce (which I don't care for). That said, the sushi held its own and really didn't need to be dipped.

When Janci couldn't answer our questions (about gluten and my aunt's seafood allergy), she seemed to genuinely want to know the answer, and knew who to ask. I felt extremely safe eating here with Celiac Disease, and felt great afterwards! I can't wait to come back on my next trip to the Cape!

We were able to find several GF options here for my celiac daughter. Talk to your server and explain the GF/ cross contamination concerns and they are happy to accommodate. Excellent food and wonderful service!
