We stopped there while out riding bikes one afternoon and the girl who waited on us was very friendly and helpful. The wings were very large and good and it was a convenient location.

SmacNally's has great burgers. You have to be prepared to sit outside at metal tables when you go. They do also have a bar to sit at. Some of the tables are not shaded. Even at 80 degrees that became hot after a while.
We did move to a shaded table when someone else left and that made a huge difference.
Overall it is a good place to catch lunch. A little expensive but they use real burger here, no frozen paddys. Each one is cooked to order, so it's probably worth it.
We will return next trip to the island.
The rampage rocks if you like some heat on your burger. They also have tame ones to choose from. The curly fries are very good also.

This little outdoor bar & grill beside the docks in the harbour is a great place to have a burger, fries and beer. We shared one burger & fries (not the beer!) and were entirely satisfied. Others clearly enjoyed some shrimp platters, but burgers seemed to be the preferred fare. Obviously, a number of locals frequent the place, judging from several overheard conversations. The college gal serving us was fun too.

If it rains, there's a little shelter by the bar, but the tables are in the wide-open. Fortunately for us, the rain held off till after we finished. We were even treated to a seal coming up on the dock, probably looking to steal a fish or two from the many boats there. Fun entertainment!

Just visited to view the fishing boats coming in with their catch. Kind of a tradition to eat steamed shrimp while waiting. Ended up staying on for evening meal and enjoyed the band. Stayed over three hours and enjoyed every minute. Service was great also.

Right across the street from Anchorage Inn. Hubby had fish dinner which was good and I enjoyed my steam shrimp. Also had live music from 6-10. Beer prices were decent.
