Content: A spontaneous stop at Mrs. Mac’s turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. The hostess was very friendly and welcoming to our party. We had our dog with us and we easily sat outside where a fresh dog bowl of cold water was waiting for him. Our waiter Nick was very friendly, professional and attentive. Our dinner was delicious, starting with the conch fritters. All the selections were well prepared and tasty. Try the hogfish, very fresh. We bought a key lime pie to go because we were too full to eat it after diner and we’ll enjoy it at home. I will certainly return here and will recommend to family and friends.
