Perfect for nibbles and drinks!

Loved this rooftop bar that overlooks the OIB Sound. Live music made our experience even better. The staff was friendly and fun and the drinks and apps were perfectly priced.

This place is amazing! The view is spectacular and the food is delicious. The calamari was the best I've had around.... It is just lightly breaded and the sauces that come with it are yummy! Our server was so sweet and very attentive. I tried the cucumber martini and LOVED it. I got the crab stuffed flounder and he got... More

We had a group of 8 for dinner at the Isles on Thurs PM 5/28. Our food was good and service was great by Robin and Marissa. We had Crab Dip, Strawberry Spinach Salad with grilled Shrimp, Spare ribs and potatoes, Stuffed Flounder, Shrimp and Grits. Everyone thought the food was good. Food is a little pricey but you are...

Overcooked seafood is a no-no for me, and should never happen at an upscale place on the ocean. His Scallops Rockefeller was pretty good. Nothing else screamed 'exciting' to me though--from the boring sauce in our mussel appetizer, the boring she-crab soup, and the 'meh' blue cocktail. The rolls were warm and tasty as an appetizer. For the price, I... More

Our group had a reservation and we were seated on time. The restaurant wasn't overly slammed and our waitress was good at getting our drinks reasonably quick. The trouble came when the food hadn't arrived 2 hours later. Other tables that arrived after our party had been served and when questions were asked, the response was a "sorry" or "it's... More

We visited with a large group of friends, making reservation for 7:30. At 9:15 we still were waiting for our food. Complaints to manager got a "sorry" but no real response to remedy the situation. We left without receiving our food and to the wait staff mocking out group. With entrees in the mid $20s this restaurant is going to... More

We stopped into this restaurant which was packed. Wait time 10 min. The hostess was very nice and when our table as ready came out to the deck and got us. The deck great n drinks were priced right. The nachos were very good! Shrimp was fresh n easy to peel. We are going back

I was at the beach for the weekend with my Mom for a wedding. This was our special treat out. We chose the restaurant primarily for the view. It was ocean front and delivered everything that was promised: absolutely beautiful! The view is really the only thing that gives this restaurant 4 stars, in my opinion. The downside unfortunately was... More

I love going here and sitting outside when the weather is nice. The outdoor seating overlooks the pool and beach and has a very pleasant atmosphere. This place is very family-oriented. The menu has a nice variety of items and sometimes we even like to just share several appetizers. The food is always terrific and staff is friendly too. Definitely... More

Our first visit to Ocean Isle Beach. The Isles resturant is very nice. Lots of parking. They opened at 11:30am on Sunday but we could not get a cocktail until 12. We had tuna tartar which was OK. The bloody mary was really good and the view was also. We sat near the tiki bar. The swimming pool is right... More
