Very clean place. We were only there for breakfast and all the food I saw come out of the kitchen looked great. Not happy about the prices though. A normal scrambled eggs with bacon and toast should be like $4 not $7.

Stopped in after a trip to the lighthouse. I had crab eggs Benedict, which was excellent. My niece ordered chicken and biscuits, which she also enjoyed. We took a breakfast quesadilla home to my wife, and that sucker was huge. All the portions were more than we could eat. Service was pretty good. I highly recommend those crab eggs Benedict!

I went there a coupe of time during my stay in Avon, as it was close from my hotel. It was a nice place to have a beer and a meal afterward. I was sitting at the bar and each time the lady behind the bar was really nice. It was a friendly place, there was food special, so it... More

We have been coming to the outers banks for many years. We have eaten at Oceana's several times even in their prior location. Breakfast and lunch can't be beat. Great crab omelets! Try the grilles too, along with crab cake sandwiches and the fish tacos. Always go 2-3 times when we are in Avon.

My wife and I ate here over Labor Day and were really unimpressed. My wife had the crab benedict and it was some substandard crabmeat thrown on an English muffin, blah. I had the Mahi Mahi sandwich. Again blah. Bun was untoasted and fish had absolutely no flavor. Finally our drinks tasted like soap. When we asked server for new... More

I had a read a couple of reviews and seemed to be a perfect place to go for our anniversary. They do not accept reservations, so its best to get there around 5:30-6. As we were leaving which was around 6:30, there were a few groups waiting for a table. The food was excellent, things were prepared just as described.... More

We went here for breakfast a couple of times while on vacation. Breakfast was great including eggs, home fries, bacon, sausage and french toast. Nathan and Jake are excellent servers. They also have fun bar specials in the afternoon. They have a game to win free PBR. Oceana's Old Bay wings are great too.

We had such a great experience at this restaurant. The food was excellent (fresh shrimp and scallops and prime rib. The service was very accommodating and nice. We had a bit of a wait and yes, that's because the dining room is small but we sat out on the deck enjoying a cocktail, watching the sunset. Would definitely put this... More

The Hatteras Islands have location going for them but the restaurants do not live up to the view, except for Oceana's Bistro. Service was excellent. Our guy, Nathan, was personable, knew the menu and was able to help us choose a great dish, and very professional. From what I could tell, the other guys (they are all young) were efficient... More
