As full time Topsail Island Residents for the last 13+ years, Daddy Macs has long been one of our favorite restaurants. It is where we go for special occasions because while not inexpensive, the food and service have always been exceptional. That was until our last two visits this summer. We went there this year for Father's Day. We were... More

After having waited WAY too long at another establishment down the road we walked to Daddy Macs and they got us in as quickly as they could! Food was great and service even better!!! We went back again later in the week:)

Overall, food was good. Menu had many, many choices. Hard to choose! Calamari was excellent. Views of water were beautiful and relaxing. Only problem was it was hard to find. The Palm trees were so tall they covered up the sign; therefore, it looked like every other house on the street! Had to circle back twice before a passerby pointed... More

Get there early as they do not take reservations, but you will be glad you did. Very reasonably priced for good food right on the beach. Kid friendly and service was efficient and very pleasant.

Decent place to go. Nothing spectacular. Service was good. Food was very so so. Do not sit outside. The flies are everywhere. The restaurant, inexplicably, has done nothing to combat this problem. No candles, nothing. Beach Shop and Grille was a lot better.

Very nice but still casual. Great location with inside and outside dining by the ocean. Food was delicious, there were six of us and we were all very happy.
