Nice oceanfront restaurant

This restaurant has a grant view of the beach and ocean. There is seating inside and out. Food was very good. We had the Isles Grilled platter (Mahi Mahi, shrimp and scallops), drunken mussels, pasta Alfredo with shrimp and a wedge salad. All was great and there were a ton of the drunken... read more

Nice place and priced right for the tourist. Portions on small side but very good. There are big portions on certain items like steak and seafood combos. I had chicken marsala and it was good. Shrimp and grits were very good. It is not a hidden gem but it is worth to check out if you do not want to... More

Terrific location overlooking the Atlantic. We arrived promptly but were seated 20 minutes late. To be fair, the hostess kept us informed about the delay. We waited at the Tiki Bar where wine is served in plastic cups. Fortunately not so at dinner. The menu was appealing with a good variety, especially seafood. The shrimp and grits was excellent, especially... More

My wife, friends and I ate at the Isles twice last week, and as usual, the experience was excellent. The only problem I experienced is that they were out of the braised beef ribs that I was really looking forward to. Their She-Crab soup is out of this world. Our friends, who were visiting there for the first time, really... More

I visit my family at Ocean Isle Beach on a monthly basis, and I had the best meal I have had there in years at the Isles Restaurant and Tiki Bar. The tuna tartar was amazing - so fresh and perfectly prepared - and I hope that they never take it off the menu!

Thank you for the kind review. Our tuna tar-tar is one of our most popular appetizers on the new menu. The wasabi-avocado and sesame wonton crisps really complement the freshly diced Ahi. We do appreciate you taking the time to share your experiences at the Isles with others and we hope you can return soon to try some of our... More

We went here and sat outside. The pool in front of the restaurant area is distracting and would recommend a later reservation if if you plan to dine outside. The shrimp and grits were absolutely delicious!! I'm still dreaming of it! Highly recommended. My husband had the scallops Rockefeller I think was what it was called and he loved it.... More

Thank you for the nice review. I agree, our Shrimp and Grits is absolutely divine. It is probably the most popular entrée on our dinner menu. I am sorry that you had a distracting view while eating at our restaurant. The pool closes after 7 o’clock so next time you come and dine with us make sure you come after... More

I had dinner here while in town for work. Sitting at the outside bar was nice with the ocean in the distance until a couple chose to stand right beside me to have a smoke (it was late and not crowded at all). I moved. Regardless, the crab stuffed flounder was OK but on the bland side. The Charleston red... More
