November in Avon is very quiet and many places have closed for the winter season. Oceana's is the only place open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We stopped in for a cocktail but it was Taco Tuesday so we ended up have $1 Tacos and $5 margaritas! All the customers were locals and at first, we kind of felt like... More

Fresh delicious food and more than you can eat portions. Clean and decorated nicely. Super friendly staff and reasonable prices. Fast service. The clam chowder is deeelicious!

The biggest thing this place had going for it was it was open on a Sunday evening. The southern end of the Outer Banks seems to close up on a Sunday night, at least during the off season. But that said, I had a solid meal there -- the grilled scallops and shrimp -- and given that it is a... More

We went here for drinks on a Monday during our vacation. The staff was very friendly. Then we went back for breakfast as it was one of the few places that was open. Prices were good for food and drinks. We had waffles, coffee, and mimosas. We then went back a third time for drinks and tried a really good... More

My husband and I visited recently. We got wings, shrimp kabobs, and fish tacos. The first two items were good, but the fish tacos were nothing special. The service was somewhat poor, felt like our waitress was more interested in larger tables. The two times I needed something, the manager happened to stop by to get me those things. Prices... More

After stopping by to check out the menu we got great recommendations from some locals that swore they had the best crab cakes on the island. Came back for dinner and was not disappointed! Server made great suggestions and they accommodated us quickly. Seafood nachos were AWESOME and the salmon special with a spinach/avocado salad was on point. Our family... More
