Went to eat here while family was on vacation at Topsail Island. Drink was very good, but the food was not that good. I had the fried green tomato appetizer and a side salad. The salad greens were not very fresh. The fried green tomatoes where not good at all, shrimp had a funny taste, and the bbq sauce didn't... More

Went here last night for dinner, fantastic food. The Low Bake Crab Dip and Onion Strings were great appetizers. And the Lobster and Crab fra Diablo was absolutely wonderful. Our waiter Connor was very good as well given the size of our group (4 adults 5 kids). Would definitely go back here, although maybe without the kids. And some of... More

Terrible food and too expensive for what they served. Service was not great either. I suggest you eat somewhere else.

Food was excellent, view very nice. Waiter was extremely "laid back" and sort of acted like he didn't want to be there. Overall it was just an "okay" experience. Probably won't eat there again.

Went to daddy mac's with my family for lunch, sat outside great view! Both my husband and I ordered meals under house specials. I had the fish tacos which were not good and my husband ordered the ribs. They looked like ribs from a CAT!

Right on and overlooking the beach, but the design of the place doesn't take full advantage. If you sit at the bar, you're cot off from everything and cannot even see out the window. Had a RedStripe and a buffalo style Calimari and shrimp dish, which was delicious. The place is a bit pricey, but the bar staff was very... More

Waitress tried real hard and was very attentive. Food....another story. Three of our plates had to be sent back..under cooked, over cooked steak, cold potatoes. A fourth plate of food was dropped. So our party of 9 ended up eating at different times. With one plate dropped, no consideration or apology was issued when check showed up. We would not... More
