Food was delicious. Loved eating right on the water. A seagull came down and tried to take my daughters chicken tender so they offered to cook her more and gave us her meal for free! Day 2 of our trip and we're going back for lunch again. Highly recommend!

Stopped for lunch as soon as I got off the ferry and was not disappointed. Had burgers and they were big and cooked to perfection. The beer was cold, and waiter was great!

Prepare to be underwhelmed. Food is average at best. Flies. Menu is very unimaginative. Bread on sandwich could have been good if heated. It was cold and probably old but not too old to have been saved by a warmup. Shrimp Po Boy was from SAMs Club. Very nice staff who bear no fault. Treat them well.

This restaurant was exactly what we were looking for on our trip to Ocracoke. Casual, waterfront dining. Best hamburger I've ever had and my husband loved, loved, loved his fresh fish sandwich. Friendly folks and good prices. Highly recommend.

Walking in from the sidewalk was not greeted by any staff, and not that you could tell who was or wasn't a waitress/waiter anyway. It was around 630pm. We found a spot to sit at the bar. The bartender finally after a few minutes came up and asked what I would like to order. I asked for a drink menu... More

They never disappoint. The shrimp, burgers, fries, fresh fish dishes, mamosas, hush puppies, onion rings and pasta salad are delicious. Dave and staff are on top of things offering fast friendly service. Dog friendly. Live music in the afternoon. Need to expand beer selection.

The food was average. The service was just ok. The waitress seemed to want to talk to the people working on the boats instead of doing her job as waitress. Was very slow in bringing drinks and accessories for dinner.

sMacNally's, with it's waterfront harbor setting, makes Ocracoke really feel like the relaxing island location. Such a FUN place. Perfect place to grab a burger, sip an ice cold Corona or two, and watch the boats on Silver Lake. Not the best place during a rainstorm as there is no indoor seating. Great bar and table servic

It's been a few years since we visited and this was our first stop after 16 hours of travel. The umbrellas provided great shade and the food was superb. Don't let the paper plates fool you. Our waitress was sweet and prompt and the for of cooked just as ordered. We will keep coming back!
