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!

So, we had a party of four on a Sunday at 12:30. We checked in and waited about 20 minutes and were seated. No air conditioning in the place that day. It was 90+ outdoors. We proceeded to order. Person #1 orders chicken tenders. OUT OF CHICKEN TENDERS. Ok orders something else. Person #2 orders shrimp wants baked potato. OUT... More

It has a mom and pops feel, tried the seniors combo of flounder fillet and shrimp, had to be a fresh local catch, really good. You may have to watch for fine bones near the edge, just work around it.Also had breakfast one day, again it was ample portions and a really fair price. Really worth trying.

We had a long drive down to Oak Island, my husband was very hungry. All the places that had 4-5 star reviews were closed on Sunday. He pulled into Oak Island Restaurant, I said "this has terrible reviews" he said, "how bad can it be?" We walk in, the hostess says, we are between breakfast and lunch so you have... More

What a deal for lunch: Daily lunch specials are great, fried or baked flounder is the beast in area....as is the shrimp! You get you money's worth at this restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Ask for Wanda!

Not a bad place to eat if you are looking for something small. The general crowd is older and it is a mom and pop restaurant. The selection is limited on what you would like to have. Seafood or fried food. I ended up getting the hamburger and gravy with mashed potatoes. It wasn't a bad dish, however I wish... More

If you are looking for seafood like fish they only had flounder, shrimp, scallops and crab cakes. For a land lover they had country fried steak, chicken, hamburger steaks ect. and a great list of veggies. My family was a little disappointed since it is advertised as having the best seafood on the island.

I'm always amazed when someone messes up a breakfast. The scrambled eggs looked like they were put on the plate using an ice cream scoop. They were just a rounded pile instead of being spread out across the plate (a little on the dry side too). There was no butter on the toast and by the time you put the... More
