Love this sub shop; we eat here every time we are in town. Sandwiches are delicious, fresh, and packed with ingredients. Have always had friendly service. They are typically pretty busy, especially in season. There is usually a bit of a wait, ~15min., but it's totally worth it. We will be back.

Should have been done a couple years ago when I witnessed the owner slice off half his finger, go to the back and make his own bandage, only to come back out 5 minutes later and continue making subs. Today, I was treated like scum when I dared questioning their processing time of subs. I was told to pick up... More

I ordered a Reuben sandwich which was forgotten about on the grill press....so it was burnt. So they had to remake me one, which I was reimbursed for...which was really nice of them. When I finally got the second sandwich it was average at best. I LOVE corned beef, and I love it served in thick chunks so it's nice... More

Can't go wrong with the Oak Island Sub Shop & Deli. Lots of variety including the more traditional sub choices and specialties like the Cuban sandwich, Philly Cheese, and interesting salads. Reasonable prices too. What more could you ask for ... well, more seating for one thing and parking can be a problem. I really don't mind the lines. Just... More

Good subs, generous meat, 12" plenty for husband and I to share. Italian, Roast Beef are our faves. Mini meatball is perfect for son. Gets real busy but worth the wait. Affordable too.

Getting an Italian cold cut sub from Oak Island Sub Shop for lunch on the beach is getting to be a tradition with us. Lines are long at lunch time, so you probably should call ahead.

Love the sub shop and always pick up subs going to or coming from the beach. Love the Cuban and the Philly and for little ones great grilled cheese. Subs are fresh and bountiful ....... and there is always a line in the summer so be prepared. If I'm not getting a sub I get the Greek salad with feta... More

I love to go here for lunch anytime I get a chance while at OKI. Service is friendly and food is readily available. This place was a hidden gem I found after years of going to OKI I had never stopped by and then last year I started stopping by and man was I ever surprised. I haven't stopped going... More

I had the Cuban and my husband got the Italian. Both were so good that he went back and got them for us again later in the week and brought them out to the beach for lunch. Potato salad is very good too.
