We celebrated a birthday having dinner at the Isles. It was terrific. Everyone of us was pleased with our food. That says a lot because there were nine adults and four children. One has allergies to many foods. That was dealt with nicely. Some of us are picky eaters but we were all mighty happy! We will go back soon!

We came in to leave some items at our property on change over day. We passed by every restaurant packed with visitors coming in and out. We pulled up to the Isles, got a breezy seat at the tiki bar, enjoyed a frosty beverage and had a fabulous lunch. My husband got fresh grouper and fries while I had a... More

Made reservations for our party of 9, the party in front of us took a little longer than expected, but the staff was very courteous and we got to our table quickly. Waitress was excellent, seafood was very fresh, and everyone had a great time!!

We heard good things about this restaurant but were very disappointed. There were 6 of us having dinner. We gave our orders to the waitress and after 45 long minutes 5 dinners came out which were not hot at all. Our 6th dinner came out 15 minutes later. That at least was hot but made the night very uncomfortable. Manager... More

My son and his bride got married on Ocean Isle June 29, 2014. I chose The Isles Restaurant & Tiki Bar for the rehearsal dinner of about 36. At first I was a little anxious about planning the dinner from afar, (I live in the Finger Lake region of NY), but manager Marnie was fantastic. She met with me 10... More

My family reunion was held in Ocean Isle Beach and we picked The Isles Restaurant for a large dinner on July 3rd--the day Hurricane Arthur blew through the area. We used the semi-private room but since the restaurant was unexpectedly empty that evening, they allowed us to hang out in the private room for a while after we completed our... More

We had our wedding reception at the Isles February 22, 2014. From the first email to the last moment of our evening the staff was professional, courteous and full of suggestions without being pushy. We were concerned after reading reviews on the food, but when it came down to the day of our wedding...everything was superb. Absolutely superb! We are... More

Went to The Isles with family last week for dinner. Service was subpar, and food was disappointing. Multiple members of our party received food that was undercooked, overcooked, or cold. Received 10% off our food bill for an undercooked and terrible cut of steak after voicing a complaint. We have been pleased with The Isles on previous trips to Ocean... More

Pro's: -location, location, location. amazing location and view, as it's right on the water. -the food is pretty solid - we got the seared tuna, grilled seafood plate, and steak, and it was overall pretty good. Not as good as Pogies (another restaurant in OIB) but still good food, nonetheless. We also had a few apps were very good but... More

We have a house on OIB and had not been to the Isles in at least a year...I happy to report that it was great! We went for lunch and all five of us enjoyed our meal. I appreciated that they accomodated my dietary restrictions (no dairy) and our aunt loved the crab melt. We will be back and truly... More
