I generally rate based on the value of the restaurant or lodging. Zillies gets an average rating from me because the drinks and snacks are marked up 75-100% over what they would cost elsewhere. I understand they are on a somewhat remote island and may have higher expenses. They have a great selection and sitting out on their porch is... More

Ocracoke still has the charm of a remote island, but Zillie's has a big-city selection of adult beverages, fun sodas for kids, and all kinds of gourmet treats and snacks. Get the fig preserves, which are terrific.

We were tooling around on our bikes exploring the Island and ra across this place. Great selection of craft beer, wine and snacks to take out or enjoy on the front porch (we did both), Defintely can find the Island vibe here and is great place to spend some time.

We love this place! You can't beat the easy and relaxed atmosphere. The wine, cheese and beer selections are the best...especially with old school music playing in the background.

If you like beer or wine then Zillie's is a must when you are visiting Ocracoke! You can enjoy your purchases on their cozy deck or take your finds home for later. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. They also have neat gifts too. I highly recommend doing one of their wine tastings as well. We visit here whenever... More

We found ourselves visiting twice while on the island. Although only for a couple of beers it was very relaxing and the staff were very willing to answer any questions we had pertaining to the beer selections. We will be going again, and again, and again when we come back for a visit. The only issue I have is the... More

We stopped by there the past two nights for a drink. They have one heck of a selection of bottled beers, a few on tap, and wine by the glass. They have a deck out front to sit and relax and enjoy your drink. Just something different.

We stopped at Zillie's on a very hot day in August. Zillie's offers an amazing variety of wine and beer, and also other beverage items. We got some cheese, a bottle of wine, 2 draft beers, and some pepperoni and enjoyed lunch on the patio. What an amazing find in Ocracoke! If you get the chance, it it totally worth... More

My family and I attended the wine tasting on Thursday evening and had a blast. They served five wines and paired each with a small appetizer of cheese and crackers topped with different toppings all of which are sold in the store. The final wine was served with a piece of chocolate. I highly recommend this wine tasting, just wish... More

A trip to Ocracoke would not be complete without a relaxing visit (or visits) to Zillies. Good beer, good wine, good people.
