Now known as Ocracoke Oyster, this restaurant should be on your list while visiting the island. Our service was prompt and pleasant. We were seated on the deck, (our preference) and I was pleased that they opened the doors when the band started so the...More

We ate here one day, and the food was average. I will say, the crab soup was the best thing I had. A bit pricey for what you get. Would definitely check it out, but don't go here first.

The po'boy shrimp sandwich is loaded with shrimp and the fries are huge curled steak fries. Tasty food with good service. All items on the menu were very reasonably priced.

Glad they changed the name, would not have stopped before. Simple, clean, good waitress, fun and accommodating, food -- we had a bowl of Crab Bisque (hubby ordered, I tried it -- it was good!) and shared a Tuna Melt. It was good. Sustained us...More

We should have sent those tasteless bivalves back. We made the wrong choice for our Anniversary dinner. The service was horrible as well. We were one of about four tables in the whole place. Do yourself a favor and head to any other place on...More
