We rode our bikes here from the beach a few blocks down. The restaurant itself is only maybe .2 miles from the beach off austin st in the corolla light community. We sat in the shaded outdoor section for lunch. At our waiter's suggestion, we ordered the blackened mahi mahi fish tacos. We also added the crab wings (crab meat... More

We drove up to Corolla for the day which we enjoy doing in the off season before the crowds get there. In the off season it is difficult to find a good restaurant that is open. We found Uncle Ike's and decided to give it a try. We were glad we did! The place is decorated in a beachy, laid... More

Visiting in Corolla during the offseason, which means many closed stores/restaurants. We drove around, not seeing many places to eat lunch, when the wife spied the "open" sign for Uncle Ike's. Expected typical bar food, but was much more than that (we ordered wraps w/ fries). Service was good and friendly, and we chatted up our waiter for a bit.... More

My family and I just got back from a great dinner at ikes. Great food and atmosphere, wonderful service from tony and miss jen. My kids loved the place and they're very picky. Going back every time I'm on the banks.

I came to the area on 3/8/14, after a long trip it was time for lunch. I read a few reviews and decided on Uncle Ikes. Ok, I know that it was early in the season, but wow. The server was new and not very knowledgeable, but I'm cool with that. He was helpful and tried hard, finding out what... More

I had the chicken and waffles, first time ever. Being from New England and experiencing this southern dish is one for the record books! Uncle Ike's has the very best food, drink and outdoor setting. Don't leave Corolla without stopping at Uncle Ike's

The options in Corolla are fairly limited when searching for family fare for a large family group. Ikes was a good choice. Food was good--not awesome--but not bad. The bar looked popular. Service was slow. Wait to get in on a Tuesday at 5pm was long (45 minutes)--but we were a party of 12.
