We stopped here for a couple of appetizers and drinks. The chicken fingers and onion rings were tasty and the service was good! I think we will go back tomorrow!

This is a good place to see charter boats come in around 5 PM. The food is average and the prices for that and drinks are average for an island place with little competition.

This is more a bar on the water that happens to serve food. Waited over an hour and fifteen minutes to get our food during the middle of the week. Fish was under cooked when we got it. They only reduced the price of one meal by 1/2 and never saw the manager. Service was terrible as our waitress was... More

This was a nice little stop for a cold drink before we caught the ferry back to Hatteras. They had a nice menu with a good selection of drinks. We chose a couple Mimosas and enjoyed the view of the fishing boats.

Great view of Silver Lake. The seafood is always fresh. My husband had the burger and raved about it - they make their own so you can order it cooked however you like. I had a veggie sandwich which was also good. Their fries are awesome. Even though it was packed, the service was timely.

Came in by boat & tied to end of the dock, paid a small mooring fee service was good excellent burger alittle on the pricey side but it is an island & the view was nice watched the ferrys & other boats come & go.

sMacNallys is the place I will think of when I think about eating in Ocracoke. We ate at a number of places while there and most I can't even remember the food, but sMacNallys is different. Both visits, everyone I was with really enjoyed what they ordered from burgers to fish, but I was the winner for having ordered the... More

My wife and I have stayed on our boat at Anchorage Marina (where the restaurant is) but have always lunched at other restaurants. We always have noticed the crowd here through the day and evening, so decided to give it a try today. They were quite busy but we were greeted quickly, ordered and the beverages came immediately. The food... More

It took 5-10 minutes just to get attention from wait staff. Had to flag someone down for a refill after waiting 25 plus minutes for a shrimp sandwhich. Overpriced and bland food, very little choice on the menu, lacking imagination as another reviewer wrote. Totally not worth sitting under the hot sun 45 minutes for that.

If you're visiting Ocracoke, and you're looking for a seafood dish, a burger, or maybe some chicken tenders, consider sMacNally's. Please note that seating is all outdoors on the water, so if that appeals to you, you're in luck! If you think you'll be completely turned off by bothersome flies, which are quite pesky, you may consider other dining options.... More
