Great location and views while enjoying lunch on their outdoor deck! Burgers were delicious, as well as the curly fries. Enjoyed watching two ducks waddle around!

My friends and family always take a trip to Ocracoke every year, included in that trip is a mandatory visit to this place. Awesome burgers, staff is great, beer is cold and view is phenomenal. When trying to slow the pace down and take it all in, this is a perfect place to go and watch ships roll in and... More

This place is awesome! Right on the water, watch the boats come in with their catches from the day, sit and watch the pelicans. The food was delicious and the fresh fruit mimosas were my favorite!

We tried to eat here, based on a recommendation...their website said (and still says) they were open until 9 p.m. When we arrived around 6 p.m. there were people sitting and standing around the bar area and also seated at tables. We waited by the sign that says "wait here to be seated" and looking around did not see anyone... More

We ate lunch here on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Service was good, food was delicious and the view was amazing. This place sits on the water. It is very small so it can be a wait and crowded but it was worth it. We had fried flounder sandwich, blackened tuna sandwich and a chicken sandwich. The fish was thick and... More

I know it's off season but we were seated & had just ordered shortly before 6 when a US Coast Guard crew wandered in at 6:01 and were told your kitchen was closed & they couldn't be served -- shame on you! Our food was really good but we wouldn't come back again based on how you treated folk's in... More

Don't think you are dining at Navy Pier in San Francisco, but you will enjoy this place. Backs up to the local fishing boat docks, so you never know what you will see in the afternoons. Good drink specials and good food specials. Don't feed the pelicans. dog friendly. ALL outdoor seating, mostly under cover. Bands on some days.

I believe the shrimp special starts about four in the afternoon. A nice stop before heading back out on the ferry.

Every time I go to Ocracoke Smacs is a must. I love the atmosphere and they have great food. You can watch the boats pull in while you eat and a mimosa is a must. I love this place!!
