My family of 5 went here for dinner late on a Friday night. We were seated right away and there were many other families there. The music is chosen by the customers paying for the "jukebox" selection. Some songs were good others I'd rather not have listened to. It was extremely loud and hard to hold our own conversation. I...

Quaint place, good server but she could have used some help when it got crowded. Everyone's food was delicious, scrumptious scallops, yummy tai shrimp salad and the mahi mahi was very good as well. Seems like a late night local watering hole, as the small bar got super busy. Heard breakfasts are a specialty.

We returned to Ike's after having a great experience there when we were in Corolla 2 years ago. The fish tacos were so good that we couldn't wait to have them again! The restaurant is quite small, though, so we decided to go for lunch and avoid the dinner crowd. It was a great decision as they were not busy... More

The food was very very very good. When we entered the restaurant we where greeted by another family hoping we enjoyed it as much as they did. While we where waiting to get our food we heard 2 families say about how it was the best food they ever had. We where not disappointed when the food came. It was... More

We went here for breakfast while on vacation. It wasn't too busy or expensive. Highly recommend, for breakfast anyway.

Our family of 5 had a positive experience - each of us getting something different and all of the dishes being very good. The server recommended the fish tacos, which is what I went for. They were terrific (I had the blackened shrimp and scallops taco). As with anything in OBX, the price wasn't cheap, with our total bill coming... More

We arrived early on a Saturday. We needed to eat breakfast and kill some time. We found this little restaurant. There were 20 people in our party. We were seated quickly, but it took a long time to get our food. Our family (3 adult meals, 2 childrens meals) ordered normal breakfast food, eggs, omelet, etc. Our bill was $72!!... More

Uncle Ike's proved to be a simple but great choice for our low key dinner selection. Small town feel and friendly wait staff made us feel right at home during our two visits to Uncle Ike's during the week of June 22. Fish tacos with a local catch were excellent. We would visit again when staying near Corolla.

I went here for the first time ever the other day and absolutely loved it!! We had a party of 14 and got there at 6PM. We had to break up our party into three different tables, but that actually worked out for the best because we got to make a kid's table and the other two worked out for... More

We chose Uncle Ike's for a family dinner while on vacation in Corolla. The weather was poor that day, and most restaurants were packed. We were lucky to get into Uncle Ike's without a wait, and we appreciated the noisiness of a bar when we had restless kids in tow. Our food was very good, but a little over priced.... More
