“Only had the Orangeade and used the washroom.”
Review of Mackie's

Reviewed 8 December 2017

Mackie's is a throwback to years gone by when burger stands were all the rage. It feels a bit dated and the food reviews made me not want to try anything other than the Orangeade. It was worth it! Loved both Orangeades that I had and used the washroom which were clean. So this may be a generous four rating, but it was above average for what I went to have. Located on the beach, it's difficult to miss Mackie's. For some local flavour, I would definitely enjoy an Orangeade!

I dont know how it is possible to make such bad french fries, but they succeeded. No flavour, no texture, no crisp. Try something else. At least the view is nice.

We drive from Toronto to enjoy their orangeade,unique carrot relish and 'homemade' tomato sauce. To be honest...part of that draw is nostalgia. I spent my teen years in Port Stanley on the beach which meant a daily "Mackies Fix" when not working. It was the original building at that time....great old building but for several years now "new digs". My Dad worked at Mackies in the late 1940's early 1950's in order to put himself through school and marry my Mom! He made the sauces [no original recipe disclosure ;)] He also was a regular with the popcorn machine. I believe there is a photo of him on the wall celebrating their 100 year anniversary. At this time of year they are only open weekends.They are fully wheelchair accessible including washroom. Handicapped parking right at the door. On the way out of Port try a stop at Shaw's for GREAT ice cream.

The atmosphere at Mackie's is always a fresh summer breeze, girls in bikini's getting the fries and a dog, and pumped up guys getting the coke and root-beer, the food is typical beach style, basket's of fresh fried fries, hamburgers and hotdogs, the lines are 20 meters long but who cares, it a show anyway. the self serve condiments table is a bit of a blessing at least you don't have to wait there. After you get your food you can sit outside and watch the girls go by.

Our daughter was playing beach volleyball in Port Stanley. We had never been there before. It has a nice little beach and an institution called Mackie's where they sell burgers, chicken fingers, fish and chips and an orangeade that completely hit the spot. This place was packed on a hot summer day and for good reason. It totally hit the spot.
