This was our first time to Surf City. We stopped at Ward Real Estate when we arrived on the island and asked for a recommendation for dining. Glynda told us Daddy Mac's had great views overlooking the ocean so we gave it a try. There was a short wait for an outside table (there was plenty of indoor seating however).... More

The food was excellent. The mahi mahi was delicious. The strip steak was cooked perfectly. The portions were generous. We went at 5:00 and the place was packed. We had to split up our party because of no seating. We ended up sitting in a curved booth next to a very small but crowded bar. It was also right next... More

Wonderful food, a magnificent view, and kind and courteous waiters and waitresses make for a perfect beach dining experience. Whether you love seafood or not, there is something your will adore! We have never visited Topsail without dining at Daddy Mac's. Just remember to come early right when they open at 5:00 to secure your spot on the outdoor patio!

The service, food, and view were excellent. Our waiter looked like David Cassidy. Salads were great. Mahi Mahi, steaks, and crab cakes were really good.

Seven adults, and five kids ranging from 3 to 16, were seated and served promptly by the attentive staff. We ate outside ( successfully between the storm cells ), overlooking the Atlantic and just up the beach from Surf City's fishing pier. The dining room is upstairs, but they do have an elevator for those who need it. All but... More
