    Beautiful bayside beach setting!

    We had a nice dinner with our dog, right by the water, under palm trees. The server brought us a bucket of water immediately, as well as, a $5 dog menu. Everyone was very attentive, including other servers who came over to say hello.

    Great food. Incredibly dog friendly

    The food was great. The staff was very dog friendly and our dog had the time of his life. He got a bucket of water and ice, an order of carrots and mandarin oranges, dug in the grand and played in the water. This place is a must for dog owners.

    Great place for the pup

    We got there early (5:15) and were very promptly seated. Our server was with us quickly, took our drink orders and returned with a tub of water for our pup (8 month old mixed black lab). Drinks were served, we ordered our food, including an entree from the dog menu. The pup got her order quickly and ours was not far behind. Food was good, perhaps a little pricey (but it is a resort) and the attention to the pup was appreciated. We will return. Compliments to our server - Courtney from Media, PA who couldn't have been better - she was prompt and patient with our pup, who is skittish around strangers.

    Great place to eat, with or without your dogs!

    We had a great time, sat about 15 feet from the water. Our malamute promptly dug a hole in the sand to lie in and his joined him. We had tacos while our dogs had the chicken. Love that they get their own menu!

    Super Dog Friendly

    Fabulous lunch! Can't say enough good things! The staff is super friendly! We brought our dog and sat on the beach...loved that they had a menu for our dog. She had the sliders (2 beef patties) and they brought a small bucket of water just for her! I had the rockfish sandwich and my husband had the burger both delicious! Definitely a staple every year!

    Doggie Heaven

    I am very surprised that this restaurant only has 4 bones, they are extremely dog friendly. The dogs are allowed to sit with their owners either on the beach or in the one patio area. The dogs are also allowed on the bay line.The servers & manager/owner are very dog friendly. They have a very reasonable dog menu ($4 for most options) and they give doggie water.

    The patrons are friendly, they have fun music & sometimes live music.Food is descent, drinks are great (I highly recommend the blueberry mule).

    Such a great experience! I've been in here twice & both times were great. It is the closest that a dog will get to heaven on earth!

    Doggie Delight

    This restaurant has excellent food and drinks for humans. Along with this you can bring your dog and sit on the beach. They brought my puppy Phoebe a bucket of water. All the waitresses wanted to pet her and were friendly. They have a doggie menu and bring the food in a bowl with a biscuit. Very cute! Phoebe enjoyed her food and meeting other dogs.

    Dog heaven on earth

    This restaurant was extremely accommodating for our dog. Even had his own menu. The staff and owner were fantastic. Oh by the way the food was very good. Try the crab soup superb. Located right on the Bay with excellent views.

    She loved it and so did we.

    The staff immediately welcomed us and brought a bucket of cold water for Liesel our 185lb Great Dane. We were promptly seated and the hostess retrieved an umbrella to be sure Liesel had a shady spot. Very dog friendly right down to her own menu. Her chicken dinner was served in a stainless sell bowl with a Great Dane sized biscuit as garnish. Terrific food and view of the bay for us as well.

    At The Water's Edge

    Their food and drinks were fabulous and the outdoor eating area can't be beat. We were there just after Labor Day, so no crowds despite the gorgeous weather, and we sat right at the water's edge for a fabulous meal.

    Even has a dog menu

    Back again this year and Macky's is still a great place to eat with your dog. They now even have a dog menu: hot dog pieces, a hamburger patty, chicken breast or apples and carrots for $4. And, as always, they still bring a big bucket of water for your pup. Human food is great, too.

    very dog friendly!

    Dog can go out back and chill at your table in the sand with a great bayside view. Food is average and a little pricey but well worth it to bring the dig along

    poor service and food

    Although our dog got good attention by the staff our waitress kept forgetting things we ordered. Our good was not good at all but my pup seemed to enjoy the Healthy Hound from the dog menu.

    Great atmosphere!

    Had a great night out to dinner with my dog. The restaurant is extremely dog friendly. They let you sit at the outside tables on the sand with a great view of the Bay. They bring out a bucket of water for your dog and they have a $4 Dog menu of either hot dog, hamburger or chicken. Dazi had the chicken and loved it. Very friendly staff that pet and talk to the dogs. Saw several other dogs dining with their humans while we were there. Other customers enjoyed that dogs were allowed. It is a mainly seafood menu and the prices coincide so check the menu if you are a picky eater. Drinks were great. We highly recommend it if you like to hang with your pooch. We will definitely being going back and bringing some doggie friends!

    I wish Mackey's was in my home town!

    Very dog friendly. Servers are super friendly and they bring a bucket of water for your dog. Dogs are allowed in the outside dining area or in a small deck area (still outside). Apparently someone complained and they now have stricter rules imposed by the health department about where dogs are allowed. If you want to watch a football or other sports game, you can see the TVs inside the bar area from the outside deck area if you have the right angle. I didn't think the food or drinks were pricey but I'm also used to Washington, DC prices. Typical bar/American type food.

    Why Don't they open a hotel?

    I loved this place, I loved the people, the service, the fruity drinks, and the burger was phenomenal!!! The dog was content and well behaved, he's a Great PYR, so they allow any dog as long as it's well trained!! I will be going back, and I'm not interested in any of the other dog friendly eateries... I choose mackys!!!!

    Loved it

    This was our first trip to OC, and also our first time vacationing with our young dog Buddy. We found Macky's through BringFido, and were so glad we did. We visited this place 5 times, and we were only in town for 7 days. They are the most pet friendly place we came across in the whole city! Not to mention, the restaurant itself is super cute and you feel like your in paradise, sitting on the sand with palm trees. The staff immediately brings water over to your dog, and treat them like they are a true guest. The owner and his wife log dogs, and even came around to meet all of the dogs in the restaurant. Dogs are allowed out back at the beach seating, as well as in the bar's so cute! Highly recommend, and we plan on going back next year.

    Great for dinner with your dog

    I'll leave it to Yelp and the other sites to critique the food and service, but Mackey's was more than happy to accommodate our dog. We had an out-of-the way table and had a great time - kids really seem tickled to see a dog at dinner. The sunset over the bay was an added bonus.

    super dog friendly, slightly pricey

    Easy to find, great location right on beach/bay, small private beach. We sat at table closest to water and between kids playing and wind blowing we got a lot of sand flung at us. Sit further away and im sure youll be fine! We had two salads and although they tasted good, we felt they were slightly overpriced for the portion we got.They had drink specials but are only good if u sit at the bar. Water free for the dog!

    Mackeys was great!

    Though they were packed and the drinks were a bit expensive, i loved being able to stick my feet in the sand while eating dinner, with my dog beside me.
