We ate here last night and the food was wonderful. We shard the seafood platter where we picked 3 of the 4- shrimp, oysters and flounder. The seafood was fresh, perfectly seasoned and not the bit greasy. The platter came with two sides and had coleslaw with it. They brought out fresh hot bread with our drinks and the platter... More

This establishment serves sub par food smothered in oil or tasteless sauces. Plates and cutlery feel dirty and waitstaff are friendly but clueless. Yes, this is a beach town, but please, not all of us are slobs

Came on a Saturday night with another couple, got seated in 15 minutes. Pretty short menu, limited options for non seafood and meat eaters. I get the impression that the location right on the beach is the big draw. Very well staffed, and I had a fillet, shrimp & crab special. Meat was perfect, shrimp OK and the crap was... More

During our stay at Topsail we ate twice at Daddy Mac's. Just have to say "fantastic"! Even on a crazy busy day during Labor Day weekend the food and service where top notch.

Recommended by a local, this restaurant has a great dining terrace with a nice view of the beach and nearby pier. Good food (try the calamari) and great service.

I can only comment about our breakfast this past Sunday at 10:30 am. The restaurant has one of the best water views around with all the surfers in the water. Yes this restaurant was not very busy and the waiter and service was just great, all our meals were just right and very enjoyable. Honestly we cant wait to go... More

I agree with most of previous reviewers. Food is good. Wait staff attentive but all seemed to be in a hurry and rushing to the next table, delivering.food to several tables on one trip. I know this is the beach but managers and servers should be in clean, neat attire, not whatever they found on the floor to put on.

The view is worth it. We sat outside, 4 adults with 2 highchairs, at a table just for 4! A little tight. Specialty drinks were very good. Main course was warm, not hot. Reservations not taken.The only drawback was the FLIES!! All over us, & the food. Not only us but whoever sat outside. Very annoying. It ruined the fun... More

Good seafood, but the place is like a factory so the food is not excellent. Drinks were weak, small.
