After 3 days of bad to mediocre breakfast at 3 other area restaurants we decided to try Oak Island Restaurant. We were so pleased with everything. The service was good, the food was great. We had scrambled eggs, bacon, grits, hashbrowns, toast and what tasted like good old folgers coffee. Now we know where we will be having breakfast from... More

Example: 3 months ago I had some friends up from Myrtle to play golf. After golf I decided that of all the restaurants... More

I was skeptical based off of reviews, but I was very impressed. The food and service were both great. We had the fried shrimp, roast beef sandwich and spaghetti. All were very good!

We stopped in at 10:40 a.m. for breakfast. We walked to the register to be seated. A lady walked from the kitchen and told us that the breakfast service was over and the kitchen would not prepare any breakfast. She said we could sit and wait for lunch to start at around 11. There were only two of us. We... More

We needed to pick up lunch close to our motel and we stopped in here. I had read some reviews here but still was on a time/location crunch so Oak Island Restaurant it was. There were numerous elderly customers there and my wife pointed out that was likely a good sign of a decent local eating establishment. We had a... More

VACATIONED ON Oak Island from July 4-12, 2014. We found Josephs in the local information booklet. We choose to eat here 2 nights in a row. From the bar to food service was top notch. Upon entering the bar Amanda greeted us with the utmost professionalism and smile. Her ability to make drinks and carry on a conversation with us... More

Please eat beef jerky from food lion first. First the good...................pork bbq is good.....now the bad, mostly everything else. The Shrimp cocktail was about 20 salad shrimp on a piece of lettuce. Actually the hush puppies were not bad. I would avoid this place! They close at 8pm!

We ended up here after discovering last minute that the restaurant we had originally planned on wasn't open. We had a group of ten, and I was a little worried about showing up without calling ahead. If you have a big group, don't even bother calling ahead- the restaurant cannot accommodate groups larger than seven. They don't have tables they... More
