We visit Mac’s on a regular basis. It’s funny to read the reviews which give it a “so so” rating;
People, it’s a DINER, not a fine dining establishment. Given that, they have the BEST Chicken Fried Steak, best bacon and awesome shakes.
They have a full bar too! The bar vibe is not “diner style”, but “rustic outdoors” with deer, elk, cougar mounts... perfect for Oregon.
Love the food! But remember, it’s a diner!

We went here for Mothers Day lunch. Because of Covid restrictions we were not able to seat our whole family together but the restaurant worked it out so we could be seated close enough to visit. Our booths were on the window side so we had a beautiful view of the river. The service was amazing and friendly. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. This was our first visit but we definitely will be back.

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.

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 had been made aware and offered you a seat on the patio for your enjoyment. We pride ourselves on our food and service. I’m sorry that your visit did not meet this standard.

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.
