Still one of my favorite places to eat on Oak Island

We had the shrimp and grits back in March of this year and wanted more! However, it was no longer on the menu, so we tried the fresh trigger fish on special. It was very good but it wasn't the shrimp and grits of my dreams. Still, this place continues to impress with what comes out of the... read more

Steak sandwich was ok not great. Flat iron steak was tasteless, over cooked and overpriced. Much better places to eat in the area. If not for tourists this place would probably not survive.

We went there on a Friday night. The wait wasn't too bad- 39 minutes. The waitress (Erika) was very attentive. Always checking "in". The crab stuffed portobello mushrooms were fabulous! My husband had the fish special and found it salty. Not a bad place for dinner with the family - not too expensive either. If they can fill the holes... More

Ordered their "special" for the day….calamari. It was frozen, breaded calamari and looked like onion rings (yuck). It could have been frozen, thawed and battered there, but was commercially done. Inquired if shrimp was fresh/local and was told it was not. Daughter had the shrimp and was not very good. If you want fresh and local this is not the... More

The last time we were here, it was extremely busy. Which is obviously a good thing, but... they should have had more bartenders on hand. We waited quite a while to order our drinks. We ate outside at one of the picnic tables that are butted together, in a row. Thought it was a little odd at first, sitting next... More

We have been going to Shagger Jack's for several years. The food is always really good and the service is usually stellar. It's a fun little place with seating inside or out on a nice covered patio (where dogs always drink free!). Pay attention to the specials, because there is usually something really good in there! The salads are really... More

The fried green tomato appetizer is very good. The fish tacos and BBQ chicken tacos are awesome. We also had the trigger fish and it was a small portion that was way overcooked.
