Best subs and salads in the area. Clean, they make the subs and salads in front of you. Large subs and salads. The Reuben, Chef Salad, Greek Salad, Vegetarian Sub and the Philly are all delicious. We always found the staff very friendly.

So, we had such a good experience here before that we just had to return when we were back on Oak Island this year. The food is the same as before, the restaurant seems unchanged. Why the 2nd review? Service. The time to communicate NO SUBSTITUTIONS is on the menu, or on the big poster advertising the product. Not after... More

We stopped in to get something light to head to the beach and was not disappointed. The hot club was outstanding! The chicken salad is a little bland but not a bad choice. Service was great and will be returning again soon!

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.
