Zillie's

We have become regulars here when we are on vacation. However since we've been coming here for years, we have noticed the beer selection has remained about the same. A little change here and there would be good. Otherwise, love relaxing on the porch!

Zillies's is a good escape from the hustle of the main drag. Great selection of wines, cheeses, and other gourmet items. We only had a glass or two (and bought a bottle) so I can't comment more. It seems to be a nice laid-back place that's more known to the locals or regular visitors. For that reason alone it's got... More

The wine I bought to go was just okay and the prices were high. I wish instead they were open later and could be used more as a night wine bar type atmosphere - 8:30 seemed really early to close.

Stopped in for a snack and a draft beer, great atmosphere and selection. No brainer to visit if you are in the area.

Zillies is an island favorite for drinking wine or beer. They have a great selection of wine and beer, including many craft brews. It is our son's favorite! But we also love it. The staff is very friendly and helpful and they have great wine tastings and all kinds of treats, cheese, chocolates, nuts, etc.

We don't miss an afternoon or two at Zilly's when we're on the island. The deck is comfy, the wine selection is decent and the beers are exotic and fun to try. I had a sticky toffee ale that knocked my socks off and we polished off a bottle of lovely vinho verde in no time! Zilly's is great in... More

Great little foods and selection of wine and beer. We always attend the Thursday and/or Friday wine tastings. Be sure to reserve a place. The tastings are always sold-out. Great to sit on the porch and relax with a glass of wine. Wifi provided. Wonderful staff!! Not to be missed

Good atmosphere and a huge selection of beer and wine. If you can't find something to drink, your eyes are closed!

If you can't find your special wine or craft beet at Zillies then its not on the island. This place has a plethora of beverages and fine cheeses with other eats available as well as high quality knickknacks. A great spot to purchase beverages or hostess gifts for a party. Very nice porch to enjoy. A real hotspot in Ocracoke.

Great wines and beer by the glass; knowledgable advice about their stock. Expensive snacks and chocolate that you can eat on-site sold separately. Great porch with a good crowd that knows the rules and does not camp at their tables. Regular wine tastings. All thumbs up.
