Fresh fish

On the tip of Ocracoke Island, fresh fish, good customer service & good vibes were had by all. Very busy lunch place as many came over the ferry and drove to the end of the island where we found this gem. Clam strips and shrimp were fresh!

The food was excellent, service was fast and the dock was full of sights to see. Free catch came in and kept the kids entertained.

Great place to eat burgers and beer. Time it so you are here when the fishing boats come in. Not a whole lot of seats but wait a bit and they will open up. Great service at a great location.

On each trip to Ocracoke my wife and I try to visit sMacNallys at least once to watch the charter fishing boats return from their days trip and upload their catch. You need to arrive around 3:30 for the best chance to get a good table. If the weather is good this event attracts quite a crowd. On this visit... More

We were told they had the best hamburgers on the Island and we agree. But go hungry they are also the biggest hamburgers ever !

We had dinner here the last night of our stay and wished we had tried it sooner. The food was very good and the service was great. Friendly wait staff, and so nice to sit outside overlooking the marina while having dinner.

The location of the restaurant was convenient but the food and the service was just ok. Service was pretty slow and our waitress seemed uncaring.

My friend and I ate here for lunch and I made the mistake of ordering the seafood platter! It was obviously frozen! Not good at all! We ordered the mimosas and they were obviously made with some kind of syrup and not fresh fruit. Not good at all! My friend ordered the burger and she said it was delicious. I... More

So glad we ate here. It was neat sitting on the dock & enjoying the beautiful weather. The burgers really were the best. I got the green head with pesto. Yum. There were no complaints. Service was fast & friendly. We'd definitely go back.

My mother who is wait staff at smacks brought me home a cowboy burger ( served rare) and some signature smacks curly fries after work the other day. Mind you it was the first time in a year I had one of these delicious burgers. At the very first bite I was overcome with an overall sense of happiness. That's... More
