We walked in and the smell of mold hit you in the face. We were wearing our masks but it didn't help. My food was cold and my husband had the hashbrowns with gravy which was a very small portion. We both felt the effects...of the mold for the rest of the day.More

The usual comment about the smell of the diner is that the aroma of the bacon cooking or the fresh baked cinnamon rolls makes sticking to their decisions very difficult! Any of our staff would have graciously resolved any disappointments in food issues if they...More

Mac's has a 1950's theme which is fun and serves up good food with good portions. The chicken fried steak was good and quite large. We waved at the rafters floating past on the river.

There are relatively few restaurants that take advantage of the lovely Rogue River, which is why we decided to try Mac's. It is very cute - all full of 50's memorabilia - and has large windows on the river side for a nice view. We...were seated right by the window (but moved farther away because we were next to a large party with several out of control kids). The tables away from the windows are slightly raised, so they also have a decent view. Two of us had sandwiches and the other member of our party had an omelet. All of us rated our meals as okay, but not wonderful. That being said, we will probably go back at some point. It would be a great place to stop on the way to Crater Lake with visitors, and the view and decor offset the food.More

Interior is decorated in the style of the 50's very cute. We both had burgers with fries and onion rings. All very good. Dessert death by chocolate yummy and big. Strawberry margarita over iced and not much flavor. Staff very friendly and attentive.

We had a wonderful experience at Mac's Diner. Our waitress was great. The atmosphere was fun. We had a nice view of the river. Our boys enjoyed the chicken nuggets and tater tots. Portions were good and yummy, two chicken fried steaks with mashed potatoes...and gravy. The Turkey dinner was great. After dinner, we shared a banana split. We will definitely visit again.More

Great place for great food and good service. Actually went there for dinner last night with a fairly large group, and again today for lunch. Ambiance is 50's all the way from statures of Marilyn Monroe in the dress blowing thingy, and Elvis with a...guitar. Lot's of fun stuff on the walls, and the menu is a hoot to read. Not one member of our group had anything negative to say about their meal. My wife and I had the Salisbury Night Fever dinner (meat loaf with onion, and mushroom gravy), veggies and choice of potatoes. Preceded by soup or salad. The house salad was good, and the bean and ham soup was awesome. Very fast service despite the number of folks to take care of. Good prices too. We went back today for lunch and had a bowl of chili and cornbread. The chili was quite good, but the cornbread not so much. Too dry and not enough sugar in it. Yeah, that's my taste, perhaps not yours. The drinks were well crafted.More

We dined here on the recommendation of our hotel, it seemed a popular place so guess in high season you'd need to book a table. You could eat in the bar area or the restaurant, we chose the latter, service was fairly quick & our...server was friendly (the other looked a bit miserable). The menu was fairly standard & a bit pricey for what's on offer. Went into the bar for a drink afterwards & a bit surprised that they were packing up but we did manage to get served before they closed the tills.More

Awesome. If you’re driving through and it’s time for lunch, stop for a bite and a view of the lazy river below. We all had burgers. Yummy food, decent portions and relaxing atmosphere. Service is friendly.

This is a very interesting restaurant. Everyone should see it once. It is on the river. The food is average and somewhat expensive. However, we did enjoy the experience. The service was very good, & the people were friendly.
