Good food, kinda tight inside, we usually sit outside even when it's a bit on the cool side, but it's still nice and private, came back to Ocracoke in Feb , 17 unfortunately it's not open year round, a lot of places arent.

My first time to Pony Island Restaurant despite coming to the island for years. They were one of the few places open this early in the season. So glad I finally went before heading to the ferry to depart for home. I got a classic 2 scrambled eggs, bacon, hashbrowns and biscuit. Service was excellent and the food came really... More

I have been going here since I was a toddler...over 40 years. Dad to find out that they don't do dinner anymore BUT the good news is that the breakfast is still delicious! You can not get a bad meal here. It is not fancy...which is part of the charm. This is a must when on the Island!!

Good breakfast, good staff - only complaint is that it was a dark place in which to eat breakfast. Need brighter lights for the daytime. The darkness in the day made it feel unwelcoming and gloomy. Otherwise a good place for breakfast - definitely nice food.

This was our first meal on the island which came highly recommended from the locals traveling on that mornings ferry with us. The food was good, not great but good. The establishment is clean, very nicely decorated and the staff is as nice as they can be when being inattentive. The wait was extremely long and we had to hunt... More

Although you may find better breakfasts on the island, the staff here is amazing. Shout out to all of them- it was busy and they were handling it with ease.
