Entertaining out-of-town guests can be tricky. It’s important to choose a restaurant that showcases all the best attributes of the area, from the people to the flavors. At MacGregor’s Restaurant, all those bases are covered, thanks to friendly staff, a prime location in historic Havre de Grace, and a constantly evolving menu.

 

“We cater to all of our customers’ needs, we have a great view of the water, and we have a menu that’s eclectic but stays true to the roots of the area,” says General Manager Stephanie Golumbek.

 

The restaurant keeps the menu fresh with frequently updated specials, but both locals and out-of-towners often gravitate towards one specialty: the Harbor of Mercy rockfish.

 

The dish is named for Havre de Grace, which means “Harbor of Grace” or “Harbor of Mercy” when translated from French. In it, Dijon-crusted rockfish, dressed with a mustardy lemon-butter sauce, is paired with local favorites like asparagus, sweet corn and tomatoes, plus chive-flecked mashed potatoes.
