I could dine at Macky's everyday, no lie! It is the PERFECT place to escape to in your shorts, tees and flippies, while sinking your toes into the soft warm sand, enjoying a fabulous meal with cool tunes in the background! Such a fun, relaxing place for the entire family or for couples wanting to enjoy a romantic place to... More

During the hurricane over Labor Day weekend this was our campsite for football, booze and great food. The staff was excellent and we had a blast spending the day there.

Stopped by for a drink one afternoon. We sat outside at a table in the sand and our dog joined us. They even brought her a bucket of water, I love it when places are dog friendly. Our beers came in cans but understandable as we were on the beach right next to the water. Had some soup and an... More

Great food, good music and drinks. You can sit right in the sand by the water and they light it up at night with torches. The food is priced higher but it is very good. There is always a long wait. Sometimes 2 hours for early dinner so be prepared or go early.

Since we were searching for an alternate waterside lunch place we decided to try Macky's. The day was bright, deck dining was full of life, good service, cold drinks and good food. All around a very nice day and hope Macky's stays that way. Looking forward to a visit there next summer!

Wanted to have a seafood dinner and some drinks. Menu was pricey. We opted for one of the specials..jerk chicken. 1 crab cake diner was over $20.00. Food was good..especially the crab dip. My friend ordered a margarita which came in an 8oz plastic up for $8.00. It didn't taste like it was worth it. The atmosphere was good! Waitstaff... More

Came here by boat on a beautiful Fall afternoon. Very EZ to get into and dock. Very pleasant staff. Outdoor Dog Friendly even offering a dog menu! Enjoyed a fantastic Salmon BLT. All in all an excellent experience! (The only negative is that they closed last weekend for the season. :( )

This was by far the best pet-friendly restaurant we visited in Ocean City! We come from Niagara, Canada and we are so impressed with the service for us and our Pugs! They loved their buckets of H20 and their apples and carrots. Human food was pretty great! Awesome atmosphere, awesome service and great food. Thanks for this amazing memory Macky's!
