Loved everything about this place. Right by the pier, beautiful view of the ocean and dunes. Staff was on top of everything. Beautiful restaurant. We brought kids and it was fine. Food was the best I have had in years. I would try everything on the menu if I could!

Island Way offers an Early Evening menu with reduced prices for generously portioned entrees. Beware of the dinner specials...an 18 oz. ribeye was $35.99 when we got the bill. Good steak, but not that good! Everything else was excellent including the service. Will definitely go back.

We ate there for lunch and dinner. Good food and great atmosphere. Ate inside and out. I would order the three cheese lasagna again-- it's not an Italian restaurant--but the barrel cut sirloin was good.

I went here because it was right next to the hotel where I was staying. Since I was solo and it was busy, I elected to sit at the bar and glad I did. The bartender, Erin, was attentive, friendly and made me feel quite at ease. Being a solo female in a resort area during season did not seem... More

My husband and I went on a date night and LOVED this restaurant. The view was absolutely amazing and the food was delicious. We had the Crab Dip appetizer, Oysters Rockefeller, Filet Neptune and Coconut Shrimp. We had a great waitress, Bailey. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and quick. We will be back next year when we visit.

We went to the early dinner which is from 4:30 to 6:00. I got a petite filet and buttermilk mashed potatoes and my husband got surf and turf. The steaks tasted great and the potatoes were mouth watering. The atmosphere and view were wonderful. Plus dinner is much cheaper here if you do the early dining option. Definitely will be... More

The setting is lovely, as Island Way is right on the beach. You sit inside air-conditioned comfort while watching the beach grass wave on the dunes right outside the giant picture windows that line one wall. The service was excellent, and the food was delicious. We started out with fried green tomatoes and fried pickles (they fry the pickles in... More

Wanted to find something wrong with this place and couldn't. Everything was fantastic. We did get there super early, thank goodness because we would of had to wait otherwise.

We visited Oak Island for a family & friends vacation, and chose this restaurant for our "Date Night". What a great choice! We made reservations that afternoon and did not have to wait when we arrived. We were well greeted and the service was friendly and professional. Although we were not at a window seat, we were up a few... More
