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!

We had our dogs with us and were excited that they were able to sit on the patio with us. We shared the platter and it was delicious. We got everything blackened and decided to try the grouper. We never had it before but it was really good and blackened perfectly. if you love french fries like we do you... More

I went here with my kids and we all enjoyed the food. The curly fries are great!! I got a burger and fries, my 17-year-old son got the fried shrimp platter... It came with fries, coleslaw and hush puppies. My 9-year-old got chicken tenders and fries. The view was great. We spent about $50. Our waitress was very nice and... More

Average food. Nice view. Dirty tables and chairs. Non collared dog walking up to tables entire time we were there eating outside. It made the meal very unappetizing having this dog sniffing at us and our meal the entire time we were at the restaurant. Would not return.
