Fun atmosphere, great food

Very casual and crowded, our party of six decided to sit outside. Service casual and adequate. Food was excellent. Two of us had the chicken and waffles, unique presentation and great taste. Shrimp and grits also a bit different and great. We will be back!

We chose Uncle Ike's because of the diverse menu and positive reviews, and we were delighted with the experience. Our server was friendly and made some great suggestions. Our group of 8 pretty well covered the menu from the grilled mahi sandwich and fish tacos to the chicken and waffles and salmon imperial and everyone was quite happy with their... More

We have eaten lunch here several times in the past and again today. The service is spot-zone. The food is very good too. Our server suggested the fish tacos today. They were the best I ever had!! We also had the BLT Steak Salad and it was very good as well! Highly recommended!!!

We were very happy to find this gem for lunch. I had the oyster sandwich, 5-6 lightly fried oysters on bun with fries. My husband had the soft shell crab sandwich. It is a fun place to eat with a local vibe to it. Would definitely go back again when in town.

Went to Uncle Ike's and started off with the firecracker shrimp which were delicious. Then I had crab cake dinner and man was it full of crab, no filler. My wife had Irish burger and she loves it. Priced decent and server was great. Will repeat.

It was a loud place. I am only in my 40s and can still party like anyone but I was visiting with family and we could not talk that well. The portions of the food were not that great. My sister had a seafood pasta ala ike and it did not feel her up very much. Plus she didn't even... More

We were told about this place by a hotel employee, local fare he said. What a treat it was, the selection of food was great. Everything we tried was wonderful. Small, hole in the wall, but totally exceeded expectations

Small bar/restaurant. I suggest large parties come early as its very small. (might seat 20 people or so) Looks like they are open from 11am - 2am. Breakfest starts May 1st. I had the Chicken fried Chicken and it was very good. They included the tip on a party of 7. I did not get any of the names of... More
