Hotel Mac, in relaxed downtown Point Richmond, has a wood-paneled, clubby conviviality that makes it the perfect atmosphere to sip the East Bay’s best mojito.
Retro American specialties like Cobb salad, pot roast, rack of lamb, and pineapple upside-down cake share menu space with spring rolls, jerk chicken, and chai crème brûlée at this unfocused, albeit affable eatery housed within a venerable Point Richmond B&B. Although the bill of fare is littered with perfunctory, uninspired land mines, there are enough delectable dishes to inspire a memorable meal or two: bright, sparkly oysters Rockefeller; creamy shrimp tostadas touched with wasabi and cilantro; a chewy yet richly flavored prime rib; an irresistible Snickers-laden candy bar pie. The ambience is generic yet pleasantly timeworn.
