The setup is cool and probably what you go for. Unfortunately on this windy, nearly-chilly day we didn't get to enjoy the tiki bar, although we did sit outside next to the building. for lunch. Everything was fine, however nothing really stuck out to me. My wife really enjoyed the fish tacos, which she got with the fresh catch -... More

Although I have been to the Ocean Grill several times, there is one sandwich that I keep going back for. That is the Beet, Arugula and Goat Cheese Panini on sourdough. Its lite and refreshing and all around great taste. It comes with your choice of fries or salad and coleslaw. I usually sit upstairs next to the window so... More

Very expensive for a casual dining situation. Atmosphere extremely loud and tense (large table of rowdy customers who were also drinking alcoholic beverages). Spoke to waitress and management to no avail. Decided to pack up our meals and leave. Management did not offer a discount for dissatisfaction or to even give us a senior or child discount. Seafood average, salty.... More

Visited from NY, had high hopes for some great seafood. The grouper tacos were excellent. Unfortunately I went on a week it was just as cold & windy in NC as in NY, so we couldn't sit at the tiki bar. But I had some great margaritas inside upstairs before we ordered our late lunch. We were one of the... More

This is one of the few restaurants in the area that is right on the ocean! They have a Tiki bar on a pier, as well as indoor and porch dining, all with wonderful views! The food was fast, fresh, and delicious! The Agave Margarita was incredible! The service was fantastic! We ate there 2 nights in a row and... More

Carolina Beach's only classic beach bar! The Tiki Bar is a favorite of locals and tourist alike. Perfectly situated on an old pier at the oceans edge awaits the pleasure only an open air beach bar with a full view of the beach can provide. Friendly staff and management. Awesome night life vibe. Love it!! It's clearly a must see... More

If you want to eat with an ocean view, this is the place to come. The food is a little over priced, but generally good. You can eat inside, upstairs, or in the covered tent down stairs or get a drink and snacks out on the pier at the tiki bar. During the summer they have bands out at the... More

You can't go wrong sitting on the pier, listening to live music, eating fish tacos and drinking a cold, dry white wine. We loved it!

This place has a bar on the pier, it is always fun and seems to be busy most of the time. A must see.
