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.

Great place to grab a delicious burger and cold beer. Well worth the wait if you get there during lunch rush. Just get a drink at the bar and wait a little bit for a table. Enjoy the dock front view of Silver Lake, it'll make you smile!

We ate here as recommended by the golf cart rental company. We were pleasantly surprised! The place was an open decked restaurant on the harbor. We had two burgers, a crab salad sandwich and chicken tenders. The tenders were home made, not usual pub fare. Ice tea was homemade and the help was awesome. We will be back.

Right on the harbor where the fishing boats come in from their day trips. The dining area is outside on a large deck! They do burgers, chicken and fish. Simple and delicious! Had a great beer selection and a $2 beer special the night we were there! We will be back there for sure next time we visit!!

We chose this place because it was located right next to the fishing docks. The service was a little slow but the food was well worth waiting for. We chose blackened fish and fried shrimp meals and these were perfect. Don't forget to try the fried okra.

We went here for dinner one night and everyone loved their burgers! It's right on the water and they have live music sometimes. My husband and I went here almost every night for a drink. They have wonderful mimosas infused with fruit of your choice. I always had the strawberry and it was so refreshing and yummy!! Very friendly bartender!... More

Ok, it has a limited menu with lots of hamburgers. They have boiled shrimp but I really question if I got a half pound. The fish sandwich is standard. Be careful when ordering a burger. My wife likes them well done and the nice waitress wrote W on the ticket. It was RAW in the center. I like a medium... More

Really enjoyed our experience. Be here at 4:00 PM when the fishing boats come in! Hint, don't sit right by the cleaning station. It's easy to catch some fishy overspray! Children love this place, watching the boats come in, offloading their catch, weighing fish and cleaning. The food was 4 star, but not quite 5. So come and enjoy.

We wanted to enjoy a couple of drinks and some great food on the waterfront in Ocracoke and sMacNally's was the perfect spot! We sat at the bar and received great service! All beers are bottled but the prices are reasonable and I was impressed by the selection (they had Bell's Oberon and Two Hearted, which delighted us as Michigan... More

Took the family to sit and watch the charter boats unload the fish. Enjoyed the boiled shrimp first and then on to the best burgers on the island. Had some great live music also.
