Been here a year ago, food was good then, not so good now. Mahi Mahi overcooked. Oysters on shell large and not tasty. Grouper was buried somewhere under sauce. Broccoli side dish avoid it! Bad experience this time.

My husband and I walked to Island View restaurant which is located next to the Oak Island Pier. The restaurant was booked but they offered us a "high table" near the bar and we took it. We still had an amazing view and the sunset was perfect! We split the broiled seafood platter which had scallops, fish, shrimp and oysters... More

This was a wonderful restaurant. Classy but casual. The fried seafood is very lightly breaded and really good. I had a good seving of oysters and could not have eaten any more! Pricing mid to high range but worth it.

The first night we stayed in Oak Island we ate at the Island Way. This restaurant had the best seafood I have ever eaten and was a great place to go for a dressy dinner our. Their crab dip is out of this world. Amazing food, you have to try it!

Restaurant is right on the ocean with a great view. Daily specials from 4;30-6. They only do dinner. We drive over from Holden Beach each of the past three years to dine here. Good food, good staff and reasonable.

We visited the restaurant again this afternoon. Ventured out to try the Early evening Meal, and it was definitely well worth it! Yes, you can have a fine dining experience on the cheap, or you can tack on the extras like a bottle of wine, and a nice dessert (as we did), and still get out the door for a... More

We biked the length of Oak Island, east to west, and then half way back, stopping at Island Way for a Monday 2pm lunch. Gorgeous place, white tablecloths, leather seating. Yet unpretentious. Staff extremely friendly. To bikers a little disheveled. To other parties with kids. They treat everyone in a welcoming, homey fashion. And equally gorgeous views. Big floor to... More

We've been coming to Oak Island for years and had always hoped for a more upscale restaurant on the waterfront...well search no more! Island Way was a very welcomed surprise suggested to us by our daughter...excellent food, affordable and wonderful view of ocean. Their wine selection is top notch. We like to eat in restaurants that offer dishes we can't... More

Gorgeous views!! There isn't a bad seat in the house! Great menu. We had six kids with two moms and they were great and waitstaff was really helpful. Kids menu has a great selection. I enjoyed the crab and avocado panini - it was good - felt like it was missing that one ingredient to make it perfect and I... More
