We usually stop here for lunch or a drink when we are on Oak Island. It is a local hangout, and the locals know it has some of the best food around. Service is great, beer is cold, and the grilled shrimp is excellent. My husband always orders the special, and has yet to be disappointed. We love being able... More

Seen this place sitting beside grocery store for years and thought it was just a locals bar. Read some reviews here and thought we'd give it a shot. Went later on a Friday night. A locals, blue collar bar/tavern it is. A few old drunks around, and construction workers. That's OK, but realize that going in - this ain't a... More

At first glance, it looks a little "intimidating" but don't let it fool you! It's friendly "beach" atmosphere inside. They serve the best rib-eye steak I have tasted n years! Grilled to perfection! Staff is charming and helpful! I'm a regular now! :)

Place has two bars that are very popular with the people. Driving through the Island after 8pm and they are the only restaurant with cars in the parking lot. After eating I understand why, the food was hot, fresh and very flavorful. Drinks are not bad either. The wait staff was fantastic. Will return hopefully many times.

Enjoyed eating at this little place. Friendly waitstaff. Definitely a place that locals go to eat and hang out. I had one of the evening specials-grilled cheese sandwich with homemade tomato, basil, Gouda soup. Soup outstanding! I ate a few of my husband's homemade chips and they were tasty too! I also tried some of my friends fried shrimp with... More

Nice local dive. Very friendly waitress. Ordered seafood chowder and hamburgers. Both were delicious. Glad we stopped by and enjoyed the atmosphere. Will return

It doesn't look like much from the outside. That's fine by me as that look screams casual. Wife and I stopped in for the "oyster bar". We both had the chowder which was great. Not the bland, run of the mill you usually get places. This was chock full of chunky goodness with a little spice thrown in. I had... More

Just a great local bar with good food, drink, and service! Excellent service by wait staff. Menu ranged from oysters, good hamburgers to chowder. Enjoyed so much we went there several times during the week.

Many places were closed for Sunday on Oak Island so we took a shot on this place. I don't know why there's ever been one bad review. Atmosphere - fun. Food- amazingly great. Service- prompt and kind. I wish this restaurant was in my home town! I'm gluten free and there were surprisingly a few options. You can pay 2... More
