If you are looking for a beautiful area to get married on the coast, the Isles is the #1 destination. My husband and I got married here the last week in July and everything was amazing. Marnie and her team helped with all of the planning, recommended great vendors, and made the entire experience a beautiful and memorable day. Marnie... More

This is a VERY large restaurant, obviously catering to large events. The lunch menu was very small with options limited to sandwiches, salads and tacos. We sat outside and had a great view of the resort and the ocean. The Tiki Bar had a large menu, though we stuck to water and tea. As of September 2014 they had a... More

Had lunch with my family a few days ago and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The food was excellent and the staff friendly and attentive. I highly recommend dining at The Isles!

Nice Ambiance; POOR SERVICE. The Salads were excellent, which is the only reason this restaurant didn't get 1 star. One dinner of the six that were ordered was good; but its almost impossible to screw up a steak. The Cajon Jambalaya was very dry and tasteless. The Imperial Chicken was terrible, the Shrimp and grits did have a nice amount... More

We've spent 5 nights on Ocean Isle & it took us until now to find a restaurant worth even commenting on. Although we had asked several locals for recommendations, we had constantly been thrown off by the use of paper plates, only fried seafood, small portions & charging extra for cheese on a salad. OMGosh, the Isles restaurant was such... More

You just can't beat the view! Some of our favorites are the she crab soup, crab stuffed flounder and you can get the fresh... More

We decided to go to dinner about 7:00. I was worried about having to wait for a table but to my surprise the parking lot was only about a third full. I was very excited until we walked in and were greeted by a very pompous hostess who asked "Do you have a reservation?" with no one else waiting to... More

Food is just average at best with little variety. Kids running all around and parents and employees doing nothing. Annoying place.
