I was craving clam strips for lunch in September, and on Oak Island, this is a hard thing to find. Lots of restaurants stop serving lunch after Labor Day, so finding clam strips was a big task. I read some negative reviews about this little local place online, but we had a great experience. The clam strips were delicious (not... More

Horrible service! Took forever for our waitress to greet us and take our order. Then it took about 25 minutes to cook a 1/4 lb burger. When I asked if our food would be ready soon (I had seen people who ordered after us getting their food) the waitress got snippy with me. As she gave us the check she... More

If you have hungry kids this is not the place to go. After we ordered we watched 3 tables gettheir food, eat, & leave. We still had to ask where our food was! Unapologetic & seemed disorganized. Ran out of drinks. Food was ok but really by the time we got our food we would've eaten anything.

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
