Breakfast??

We wanted to try someplace different for breakfast, so we stopped here at about !0:45 am. There was a sign that said breakfast was over even though breakfast was to be served until 11:00am. It was stated in the menu that breakfast may end earlier if the cook decided to end it. Therefore, we... read more

Food was OK, prices good, service very poor. We waited for what seemed like an eternity for our food to arrive. Tables that were seated well after us were served and out the door before we even got our food. When the food came it was barely warm. Even the hushpuppies were cold. Staff seemed indifferent and more interested in... More

It has been a while since I've had breakfast at Oak Island Restaurant, and I'll not go back. Omelette was greasy, hash browns not cooked, only on top, and biscuit burned on bottom. Coffee was was highlight of the meal, and it was just OK. When staff cleared plates and lots of food left, didn't ask anything. My bad for... More

Best flounder around at a good price! Worth the wait for a table in season. Other specials are excellent if you don't want seafood but shrimp and fish are trademarks. Excellent, attentive table service.

Great priced seafood! We always visit OKI Restaurant when we visit the island. Arrive early but they do have a great indoor waiting area.

Breakfast was very ordinary. Fake butter always wets my appetite. 1 1/2 slices of toast, canned fruit, not very friendly servers, with the acception of the cashier. The tea was good.

Had to wait over 1hr to be seated. Great family atmosphere. Needs more seating, but staff was very friendly and food was very good. Best flounder I've had in a long time. Could have used more hush puppies. Will be back!

Ordered the small shrimp and flounder combo. A ton of food. The shrimp was good, but the flounder was superb. About as good as I have eaten. Anywhere. Onion rings, not so good, but the flounder was great. Cannot imagine the large combo. Make sure you are famished before you order that one!
