Loud large space. Commercial tasting food, which was extremely overpriced. But, the view of the ocean is beautiful!

It seemed to be the start of the tourist season, but they made it work! They had a wedding and frat party event going on. We, upstate New Yorkers, were thrilled to be outside at the bar having drinks and dinner! Both bartenders dud a nice job. Conversation was pleasant and food was good. Great night and pretty place.

Marnie (and staff) We want to thank you and your staff for the fabulous wedding we had! We both wanted a simple, yet classy, beach wedding. When we first found Ocean Isle Beach, NC, and your restaurant, we were worried that planning a wedding from over 1000 miles away would be difficult! This was not a problem at all. Your... More

We came into town for an early vacation this week before the busy season starts up. We dropped in at The Isles this afternoon to see if they would be open for dinner, as there were several cars in the parking lot we believed so. As we entered no one was in sight so we proceeded to walk towards the... More

Love this restaurant! Wonderful food but the view is why I really love it. Great tiki bar with a casual, fun atmosphere too.

I cannot even begin to sing my song of praise for The Isles! I was a bride coordinating a wedding at this venue from out of state and while my interactions with most other vendors was a headache (to be expected to an extent since I was not able to visit in person), Marnie Williamson was my one gem in...

My family & I had the pleasure of visiting Ocean Isle for the first time in years this past summer, we just so happened to grab some lunch & some drinks after a long day at the beach! Very great decision might I add. Our server, Caleb, was super friendly and made us feel at home. The food was amazing... More

The food was EXCELLENT! The restaurant is closed for the season but hosts events. If how well they hosted our reunion was any indication - I... More

Sunday evening, after Labor Day, the beaches are much quieter. I took a 45 minute "vacation" from the work-a-day world in Wilmington to explore Brunswick County's beaches. I settled on Ocean Isle Beach - never been there - so I thought I'd check it out. Spent a couple of hours quietly on the beach, then ventured over to The Palms.... More
