Overall very good. The view was probably the best on the island. We were the first in when the doors opened but servuce was slow. Wished crab cakes were available as an appetizer rather than meal only. 7 of us had a large variety of food including scallops, oysters, fried flounder, snapper special, steak and chicken nuggets.

The food and service was very good. I got a NY strip with fries and a side salad. The steak was cooked the way I requested, and the sides were good. My girlfriend got Louisiana crab cakes (spicy), salad, and the vegetable of the day. They were also prepared well. The waiter was very friendly, informative, and attentive. The bar also knew how to make their drinks in a timely fashion. The view of the ocean, combined with the food and service, made for a nice evening. There were a few flies buzzing around, but it wasn't a big deal. The people leaving bad reviews sound like picky wannabe food critics. The menu has meals/sandwiches ranging from $9 - 25$. Inconsistency is a possibility with any restaurant, but I would recommend going to Daddy Mac's.

Loved this place, beach front outside seating, great staff, and great food. You must get the catch of the day tacos! Great variety of stuffed gourmet burgers to please every pallet.
Highly recommend sipping margaritas at this charming beachfront grille

We sat outside on our trip here and besides the flies, that were annoying, the atmosphere was great. We had the crab dip as an appetizer and it was awesome. For my meal I had the Maryland style crab cakes and they were amazing!

We went to Topsail Beach on our honeymoon - and we were there in the off season. It was great at the beach, but a little harder finder places to eat later at night. We were recommended to Daddy Mac's by a friend so we gave it a try. We still talk about how great the food was and if we go back to Topsail - which we'd love to - we are definitely going there. The crab dip appetizer was better than any other I've had!! Great place!
