The Mac's on Main Restaurant evolved from the rebranding of an existing 3,400 s.f. restaurant which was located in the basement of a historic building located at the crossroads of two major streets in downtown DeLand. The new design included expanding the restaurant to the ground floor in an area that was formerly a bank and occupied an additional 3.400 s.f. This gives the restaurant incredible visibility to prospective patrons and includes 124 additional seats in the restaurant as well as a feature bar designed to attract millennials. The new theme of the restaurant is cracker/nautical that is reflected in the architectural detailing of the space. The bar was specifically designed to include old time fishing boats and reclaimed lumber in addition to the reuse of a salvaged historic "Chicago Style" bar top. The restrooms were redesigned to be fully accessible and also utilize reclaimed lumber and salvaged doors as a part of the decor. A key feature of the design was locating the stairway to the existing restaurant below amongst the many poured concrete beams and without disrupting the operation of the existing restaurant and doing so in a manner that benefited both levels of the new restaurant. This staircase developed a character all its own. The railings and pickets were designed with using wood canoe paddles and is accentuated with a custom painted mural depicting Florida wetlands flora and fauna. The entire construction process was conducted while keeping the original restaurant open for business and was built by Ken Goldberg Construction, Inc.
