It's okay

Went here for breakfast because my favorite place had lines out the door, We were seated near the kitchen entrance and wait station, even though the restaurant was not crowded, so we were privy to all the latest gossip and goings on, thanks to the servers.

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

Had lunch here two days in row while in town for business. Awesome flounder plate at a great price. Some of the best flounder I have ever had. Fresh and perfectly prepared. The shrimp plate is a winner also. Both lunches with a drink were less tha $9. Mary the owner is great lady and takes care of her customers.

Haven't been here for a while. My wife and I went last week and they have remodeled the restaurant. It was clean and the staff was very friendly. Food was good and we'll be going back again. Very reasonable prices.

I had no idea where to eat on Oak Island, and it was pouring, so I went where there were cars. I ordered lemon pepper scallops. I was suspicious of the very uniformly shaped discs that looked as though they were formed with a punch-press. They tasted much fishier than any other scallops I have ever had, and the lemon...

I choose this restaurant thinking it would be decent because it was of the few restaurants on Oak Island with cars in the parking lot. I ordered the grilled lemon pepper fish and it was so gross I threw the whole thing I the trash. It was soggy and swimming in some type of greasy yellow sauce. I ordered a... More

We had the fried seafood for dinner last night, it was just ok. Cole slaw was served in a throw away container. This place has been decorated with used non matching booths worn out curtains. The food is not cheap so why don't they improve the way the restaurant looks? Won't eat here again.

I eat here most times that I visit Oak Island. They say best fish on oak Island and it would be hard for me to disagree. Hushpuppies are pretty weak but the fish make up for that.

Can't help you with anything else other than it is the best breakfast on the island that I've found. Never had any other meals there.
