Mac Daddy's


This evening I attended an event at Cape Carteret's Mac Daddy's.  The Carteret Chamber of Commerce September Business After Hours Program was held to celebrate the first anniversary of the opening Mac Daddy's.

Mac Holz, the owner/proprietor, told me that he was very pleased with Mac Daddy's first season.  The expectation is that more and more people will find out about Mac Daddy's state of the art facility.

Not long ago we often heard the lament that there was nothing for the young area visitors or residents to do on a rainy day at the beach. 

With the opening of Mac Daddy's, that complaint about the Crystal Coast has disappeared.  With bowling and a fantastic arcade, there should be something for almost every youngster up through the teenagers.

There is also a sports bar for the parents and plenty of tasty food.

Tonight we sampled their kettle chips, pizza, wings, and ribs.

All the food was very good.  read more »
