I’ve only been here for drinks and it was a lot of fun. I love their buckets! If I remember correctly I believe they come in two sizes (32oz and 64oz). Must try!!Shopaholic_x0 January 31, 2016
"Nice beach seating area, great sandwich, pet friendly"
We went to Macky’s for lunch when we looked for a restaurant in Ocean City that is pet friendly. We found it on the list on BringFido.com
The restaurant was pet friendly in general — we saw other guests with dogs not only on the outside ‘beach’ seating area, but even near the bar. The outside ‘beach’ area was a nice place especially in good weather.
We came to Macky’s on their last day for the season, so the available items from the menu was limited. I had the crab cake sandwich with BLT, while my wife had their grilled fish sandwich. The order came with generous portion of tasty fries. The Mango Macky drink was quite good as well.
They also had a little menu for dogs — first time I had ever seen a restaurant with that. We ordered a healthy apples and carrots mix, which unfortunately was not as appetizing (as compared to the mini sliders or hot dogs) for our dog. He only ate a little bit of those.
Overall, we would certainly consider coming back to Macky’s especially if we have our dog with us.rsetia67 January 04, 2016
Macky’s was by far our favorite party place in OC. The staff is wonderful. The drinks were spot on and the food is 1st rate . This is not fine dining just real good beach comfort food. We enjoyed our time here so much more then at Seacrets. Can’t wait to go back next summerabbo1963 October 27, 2015
"Very good food and make sure you sit outside for a great sunset!"
If you want great food and a great view of the classic OC sunset, go here ! Get there early if you want to sit outside to sunset gaze, or you will not get that chance. It is a seasonal business.

"Buckets of Orange Crush!"
So I can’t rate their food because we didn’t eat here. What I can tell you is that their drinks and bartenders are absolutely great. We would return based upon just those two factors.

"Bayside Dining in Comfort"
Went there for our last night before going home from vaca. The broiled crabcakes were awesome. Even the broccoli was incredibly tasty-and I hate broccoli. Do ask for the Old Bay Tartar sauce! The pina colada was the best ever. Dress is very casual. They had a lot of TVs and they post which games will be on each TV for that day/evening so you can be seated so as to see your favorite team play. Views of the sunset are crazy good from this fun waterside restaurant. At sundown, they played God Bless America and everyone sang along. We really enjoyed our dinner. It was a fairly spendy event, but we have no complaints.

"Great bayside restaurant for happy hour and dinner"
Part beach bar, part restaurant, Macky’s is a fun place to go hang out. Happy hour drink prices are good and some food is discounted as well. Spiced shrimp was great. I liked the appetizers a bit better than the dinner dishes which were variable in quality (some were very good) and a bit pricey. We’ll head back next summer again.

"Great place on the bay"
Love coming to this restaurant every time we are in Ocean City! The quiet bayside/beach like seating (sitting in the sand) is like dining on the beach! Especially when the sun sets as you watch the boats or jet skis pass by! The frozen drinks are delicious as well as the food! Love the fact that they allow dogs to dine with you outside! Great family place on the water!

My family was seated in the sand, by the bay & the view was absolutely gorgeous. Everyone loved the food. Karly was our waitress & provided excellent service. Will certainly be back again next year!

"Night club with people that have souls"
I do love Seacrets on the bay during the day as we go there every summer, yet every summer it becomes less and less fun for me and my friends. I went to Macky’s a couple of years ago and we had a great time and meant to go back but always failed. We ended up going this year and we were all so glad that we did. A party of 8 of us had a blast! The bayside at night was fun and definitely a refreshing change from Seacrets. The bartenders are crazy fast here and it never got too packed for a nightclub where we wanted to leave too soon. My boyfriend noted it as a place where the patrons actually have souls and you can talk to them as opposed to the zombies at Seacrets that are just hitting on everyone.

We make a visit or two every summer! Have always enjoyed it! I love to sit on the deck and watch the water, and the food and drinks have always been great!Lee W Baltimore, MD March 28, 2014
Macky’s was awesome. For all the years I have been going to ocean city I finally got a chance to try Macky’s for lunch. My seat was on the bay and I loved it. The food was incredible. I will be back again.kmh51781 Bayville, NJ January 03, 2013
"My New Favorite Bar!"
Macky’s is my new favorite bar in OCMD. It wasn’t crowded, it’s open to the air, it’s right on the water, there are tables in the sand and the bartenders make a heck of a drink.Peter M. Scranton, PA September 27, 2013
"Great Place to Watch the Sunset and Enjoy Some Food"
I absolutely love mackey’s! It’s a great place to watch the sunset and enjoy some amazing libations and food. We had steamed shrimp as an appetizer and they were cooked to perfection. Dinner was the Tuscan chicken pasta, which is grilled chicken, asparagus, and penne noodles in a bacon Parmesan sauce. I can taste it now. I wanted to lick my plate it was that good. Service was excellent. Overall a great evening.Mary W. Neville Township, PA June 15, 2013
We recently ate at Macky’s in Ocean City and were pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere is is great with a location right on the bay. It was so cool when they played ” God Bless America ” at sun down and everybody sang along. The food was excellent and our waitress was very friendly. I ate one of the best burgers I’ve ever had. We liked it so much that we went back for brunch on Sunday.Ken B Laurel, MD October 13, 2013
"Good food, great view."
Mackey’s is a large restaurant/bar, but there is outside dining facing the bay. They have brought in sand, and the tables sit on the sand among palm trees…a tropcial feel. You can walk to the waters edge where you can usually see many ducks.
The menu is good, focusing on seafood dishes. the waitstaff is attentive, the food is excellent. I’ve had salads, crab dishes…all has been fine.
I can easily recommend Mackey’s/60811Traveler626 Baltimore, MD October 07, 2013
"Perfect place to wind down"
Treated to a bay front sunset at Mackys on a lovely September evening. From drinks, to food, to the patriotic music played at sunset – this is a great spot to wind down after a day on the beach. Request a table in the beach!JJosie4 Baltimore, MD September 22, 2013

"Amazing bayside views"
Macky’s has one of the best locations in Ocean City. It is directly bay front with an excellent dining area in the sand.
The food is not the best. But, for me, the atmosphere made up for the lack of culinary genius.
I would recommend going for lunch or a few drinks but I won’t go back for dinner.
I have not experienced their nightlife scene so I cannot comment on that. They do have a fabulous spot for watching the sunset! One of the best!!!

"Great Honeymoon Dinner!"
We went there while on our honeymoon in Ocean City. The outside dining on the beach is so cool and the sunset that night was amazing. The food was very good, I had the crab mac and cheese it was full of backfin crab meat, I was pretty surprised. My husband had the shrimp and chicken in a coconut and lemon sauce over pasta, that was amazing. Waiter was great. Went to the bar while we waited for our table the bartender was really fun and good drinks!! You really should try this place if you are in town.

"Great Outside Dining!!!"
Went to Macky’s on Labor Day Weekend. We went because we heard the outside Dining was pet friendly. When we arrived, there was about a 45 minute wait but we figured there would be a wait like that so it did not bother us. What surprised us was how great the entire staff was. We were allowed to wait by the water for our table with our Dog. The staff all came over at different times to say hello and pet our dog and made sure that he had water.
The food was outstanding and worth every penny we spent. We did not wait long for our food which was a plus. The inside bar area can get crowded as it gets later in the night but overall, Macky’s is a place I highly recommend, especially if your on vacation with your dog.!

My Mom and I walked to Macky’s from our hotel. It was suggested by the hotel staff. When we arrived the place was really crowded and we thought it would we a long wait. However, we were seated as soon as we entered. We noticed they have an outside dining area as well by the water that was crowded. We choose to remain inside. The waitress was very pleasant and patient with my mother who asked many questions because of dietary restrictions. The crab cake platter we both ordered was over the top delicious. The portions were abundant so we took half back to the hotel for later. Our experience was very good and we would go back again.

My boyfriend & I had dinner at Macky’s in August. We both order different fish entree’s. I had Salmon and he ordered the tuna steak. Both dinners were excellent and cooked to order.
We had a great table inside overlooking the bay.
The service was excellent and we had 2 sides to choose from.
It’s a great place to go if you want a nice dinner, and not just snacks. we will go back.

Crab cake was absolutely phenomenal. Coconut shrimp was great too. Very busy and long wait for a table on saturday night. We stood at bar area and got a table there much quicker.jeaniegirl Binghamton, NY August 11, 2013
By far the best meal we had in OC. After a rainy day cleared we were seated outside at the edge of the water. Great view, excellent food. The waitress told us that they sample the specials every night before service and her recommendation was spot on.
Frozen drinks were great as well. They even made a “virgin” drink for my 16 year old.
This will be the first place we go back to when returning to OC.

"Macky’s Bayside Sunset Experience"
I have eaten at Macky’s numerous times over the years and it has never disappointed for three reasons: food, service, and the sunsets! After a horrible day of pouring rain, the sky began to clear so my sister and I ate outside. We ordered drinks and dinner, and our very attentive server Jamie, took care of our every request. My coconut shrimp
was tasty and the grilled chicken breast on spring greens was very good. My sister ordered boaters salad w crab cake, which she enjoyed. Around 8:10 we cpuld hear Kate singing God Bless America …minutes later while Jamie was checking on us, we noticed a few puffy pink clouds high up in the sky which then became a magnificent sunset!
The sky was beautiful, seaguls were flying in the distance, and everyone stood by the edge of the bay taking photos. It was better than dessert!Julie S Frederick, MD July 13, 2013
"What a way to “FIX” a Monday"
Decided to go out for out for Dinner. Picked Macky’s. Stopped at the bar, Justin was quick and courteous. Ended up on the Beach, yep on the Beach. Had Andouille sausage encrusted Grouper. Great presentation and a very large piece of fish, even the sides were delicious. My mealmate had the BBQ shrimp, bought some home. Carl and Briggs should be proud of the service, Stacey did a great job. Dinner was very timely and just the right temperature.
GREAT View, great meal. Looking forward to going back.
