“Good food outdoors at harbor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

Very busy and crowded bar and outside dining. Understaffed but handled well - I had a delicious burger - family friendly and reasonable.

“We love this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

We stayed in Ocracoke for two nights recently and had dinner here both nights. Love the outdoor atmosphere! They have really good food and drinks and the view of the harbor can't be beat. We can't wait to come back!

“Good food with a nice view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

We ate burgers and fries. They were good, but a bit pricey. They were super busy so it was hard to get refills on our drinks, but all the employees were super nice and would hunt down our server for us. We would go again.

“A little tight on space”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

It may have just been the festival bringing extra tourists in town, but when we were at sMacNally's, we were packed in the place like sardines. That being said, the service was still excellent, our server polite, cordial, and prompt. The food is largely seafood and American bar fare both of which turned out to be perfectly prepared, fresh, and delicious. The beer selection could be more extensive. sMacNally's sits right on a marina and we got to see boats come and go and watch the fresh catch of the day come in (literally, right up on the side of the restaurant in the arms of the fishermen) while we ate. We had the good fortune toward the end of our meal to get an acoustic performance by a Nashvillle Top 100 recording artist (yes, one that we had actually heard of). I don't know how common that is, but it made for great bonus to our meal. All in all, I don't know if I'll ever go back to Ocracoke, but if I do, I'll be sure to hit sMacNally's again.
