Great variety in the menu

We have been to Uncle Ike's several times over the past 5 years or so and always enjoy it. If you are looking for a break from seafood or have non-seafood eaters in your party, they have a very varied menu. They do definitely have seafood, but there are a lot of other options as well. The staff is... read more

We had breakfast here; nothing special but certainly OK. Since we ate breakfast only I can't review other meals. We were somewhat disappointed, as we seem to be frequently, that there are so few spots open early in OBX. The various places seem to think 7:30 is the crack of dawn. Maybe because vacationers tend to sleep in?

We stopped for lunch at Uncle Ike's before going on the Wild Country Horse Tour. The food was delicious! My daughter said she had one of the best burgers she has ever eaten. I tasted it and agreed! I enjoyed the Thai shrimp salad. Everyone else enjoyed what they had, too.

We were seated indoors right away on a Friday night. Service was great, we had Yulia as a server. She was very sweet and prompt. The blue crush was delicious as was the crab dip appetizer. The Mahi fish tacos were very tasty and filling! Kids loved their chicken tenders and peppery fries. Hubby's burger was a hit as well.... More

We visited due to the many positive reviews. The food was very good and selection and prices varied. However, the staff was rude. We had a communication mixup with our order and our server was very condescending about it. We expected better service and attitude.

I walked in there for lunch with a group of six guys out for some lunch. We loved the place. It is a very casual relaxed laid back vibe. The owner came to our table, chatted with us, recommended some drinks and specials. They had nice upbeat music playing. The drinks were ice cold, the appetizers and main courses were... More

Had dinner with family while vacationing in Corolla, NC. Ordered the $27.00 seafood platter and believe me it was but a small sampling of a few (5) shrimp, a piece of Maui Maui that was not over 3 inches square, a small, (but somewhat decent crabcake, and lots of steamed broccoli and rice. When I inquired with the waitress if... More

A few of us couples and our kids ate here. Nothing was fantastic. Most stuff was just ok. Even the drinks and music weren't that great. Maybe we were expecting too much due to all the great ratings. I would go somewhere else if there was another option.

Great place for lunch and dinner. Tony is awesome. Try the fish tacos and the Orange Crush. Menu is varied and there is something for everyone.

I work in the Corolla Light shopping center, so Ike's is a must have at least once per week. Our new favorite item to order in the office is the breakfast plate with eggs, a meat and potatoes! I could eat my weight in the potatoes. ..they are cooked to perfection!
