We get it to go!

We get a Stack Shack sandwich and fries and eat it on the beach! Try the fresh made ranch for dipping, it's top shelf!

We went here for drinks one night after dinner. You can tell that this is the place where the locals eat and drink. Everyone was super friendly and the bartenders pour really good drinks. The outside patio has a great view of the sound and there was an acoustic musician there the night we went. We will defiantly go here... More

We loved watching boats come in and go. We also enjoyed the local cat! Food was good and view was better!

Not sure what it is like during the day, but at night it turns into a bar with a locals feel. Not sure if really a locals bar, but everyone seemed to know each other. Pricey drinks for what it is though. Right on water, very cool.

I've grown up spending summers, Easters, and long weekends at a little house on Ocean Isle, and I have always loved eating at Sharkys. It's just a neat place. It's not as new as The Giggling Mackerel, but the food is better. I'm glad they have changed their menu and added some of my old favorites back- the Not So... More

This is a neat place to stop in for lunch. The food is OK. I like that it sits on the waterway. Last time we were in the owner came by the table. He seems nice and interested in improvements.

Spent a week in Ocean Isle Beach. Tried a couple of other places but kept coming back. Clean, friendly and quick. The manager went out of his way coming over and checking to see if we were satisfied every time we were in. Really enjoyed the place. No complaints at all!

Nice size bar area and bar in the back also. You can sit outside in the back and eat and watch boats in the canal. You can park your boat there also and go in and eat. No reservations. We got there at 5:30 and waited a half hour. By the time we left it was real crowded. No telling... More

This was our first visit and we pulled in because it looked fun, family friendly, and on the waterway. Outside dining is first come first served and the hostess has no idea if there are openings. Hostess took our name as I wandered through the dining area to check the outside area for open seats. None available. We were told... More

Love the grilled grouper sandwich. Or eat a pizza or have conch fritters. SIt outside and watch the boats or eat inside at a big table for lots of friends. Two people or a large group - something for everyone.
