Best subs ever. We only get to Oak Island once a year, but our first meal is always at Oak Island Sub. We even take subs to go for the long ride home to Tennessee. Be sure to call your order in if you're here in the summer. They are busy!

If you can, order by phone and pick up. We waited 45 minutes for our order but it was worth it. They were a good size (we got small) and they were stuffed with meat, cheese and condiments. They need a menu on Facebook or a web page.

We got take out for the beach twice while on our recent vacation. I had a corned beef sub which was piled high with tender meat. Definitely not skimpy like another well known subway chain. My son ordered the Caesar salad which was also a nice size and he gobbled it up. Everyone was happy with their lunches. Hint: go... More

I rodered a plain ole' turkey sub and my husband got the crab salad. Holly sandwich..the bread was fantastic, they were huge..fresh and would have to say the best... More

This restaurant has very good sub sandwiches. We always stop by here for lunch when we are on vacation. The staff is friendly and they make your food fresh to order right in the open kitchen area, so you can watch them make it if you wish to. I would recommend this as a lunch meal unless your wanting a... More

Great place to get a good sandwich. Mufalata was very good. Me and my wife split one and a lobster roll, little girl had a grilled cheese, which was good as well. Again, food was excellent, but it can get a tad expensive if everyone in your party is getting large sandwich sizes, chips, and drinks. Would definitely eat there... More

Met the owners very knowledgeable. They make their own bread, and do research and produce carefully selected items for their menu. Though they couldn't possibly make a decent Cuban being so far north few places even in south Florida do, but I was so happy to be wrong! Pricey but for a good reason its a five star sandwich experience!... More

Lobster roll was small but fresh. They have a few tables but mostly take out customers I assume. Its next to Dairy Queen.
