Discovered Zillies after asking a local bartender about her favorite place on the island... Off the beaten path. Great location for relaxing with an incredible selection of beverages!

We love Zillie's because they have a huge selection of beers & wine. You can sit on the porch and have some beverages. We always start our bar crawl at Zillie's. It's a lot of fun. They have a store where you can buy snacks, novelties - it's great! Parking is limited, but it's within walking distance to everything.

Love this place to relax with my hubby and enjoy wine and cheese. Staff is very friendly. Outside seating and a special cigar deck. They offer cutting boards and knives for you to use. Wish they had buckets of ice to keep my wine chilled on a hot summer day.

Zillie's is a very low key wine bar that has an outstanding selection of beers and wines to try. The selection of gourmet food is also excellent for stocking up on biscuits, cheese, etc. As it's one of a few places in Ocracoke not on the water, it doesn't attract a huge crowd, but it more than compensates by offering...

Such a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy a beer. This quaint little place has become a must-do when visiting OBX.

THE place to buy your craft brews, wine, and gourmet snacks on Ocracoke. They have a small but adequate cigar selection. If you are a foodie or have foodie-like aspirations, the staff can help you find something new and great to try. The porch on a pleasant afternoon or evening is the place to be to hang out with friends... More

Excellent selection of wines and beers. Very laid back atmosphere with friendly patrons and staff. A must stop on the island. Love the out of the way location. Well, as out of the way as you can be on Ocracoke!

Wonderful place to rest and meet new people. Wine, beer, champagne and great cheeses, crackers, dried meat, speciality foods. Super. Everyone that works there are great very welcoming. One unfortunate incident on wine tasting night, if you are just visiting the island and are unaware of their Thursday nite tasting group beware. They are territorial and pick up on anyone... More

Zillies Island Pantry is a beer, wine (and gourmet foods) aficionado's island oasis! It had been several years since I had visited Ocracoke, when once it was an annual pilgrimage. On our most recent visit (to one of the best beaches/vacation spots on the east coast), we were barely checked into our house, when we dumped our bags, hopped onto... More

Had a wonderful relaxing evening at Zillies. We chose several cheeses and crackers to accompany our drinks. The porch atmosphere and weather was great also
