This is a nice spot to just hang out & watch the boats come in with the "catch of the day". You may even get to watch the fish getting cleaned. There is a small gift shop & Smacnallys serves up cold drinks along with sea-faring menu items. They can accomodate your ferry ride to the mainland. It's nice to... More

Hop off the boat, they'll lend a hand if you need one -- great place to tie of for a burger at Smacs and fine tunes in the afternoon -- great place for sunsets on the creek.

Three dock hands (including owner Bill Gilbert and Marco) make docking a dream. No better help with lines, shore power and water anywhere. Friendlier and more accommodating people you will not find! Coming in here is a pleasant experience itself. Great casual bar/restaurant lots of times with live entertainment. Nice high rise motel overlooking the harbor.

I have stayed at Anchorage twice, and enjoyed both visits very much. If you are willing to spend a little extra, I especially recommend the top floor suites. They are not luxurious (few things on Ocracoke are) but they are spacious and very nice.

If you're on the Island for just a few days, this is a great place to stay. The view of the harbor is breathtaking. It has a pool! Some of the rooms could use new beds and decor, they're looking a little tired and dated. But it's still comfortable and clean.

Fresh fish sandwich was tasty. Beer was cold. Fries were fried. Overall, not a bad lunch sitting by the marina in the village.

I visit by boat several times a year. Great help docking, friendly service, nice casual bar/grill on the dock, and motel with probably the best view on the island. Bill, the owner, is all over the place, and you have never met anyone nicer. Bill and Marco, on the dock, make life easy for us boaters.

Went there several times to get a beer and watch the boats come in with their catch. Fun place, friendly, good to get the scoop on where to go on the island from the locals

We had a great meal and conversation with the locals at the Marina. Greta deals on fishing charters if you have a group. The meals were fine and beer was cold. It was a beautiful fall day with blue skies and friendly staff, A great place to enjoy the island. Beautiful boats of all sizes. Come and do a little... More
