I was waiting for the ferry and was told to go here for breakfast since few places are open after the tourist season best Western omelet ever and I took their incredible bisquits (huge!)to go for the ferry ride. Delicious.. owner sources food locally and even catches the fish for the menu...wished I lived there!

Visiting in Sept, things had started to close down on this small barrier island village. However, Pony Island Restaurant was open. It is a short distance from the main central part of the village. However, maybe just a bit far to walk, unless you're up for a 15 minute walk. This is a home-style food place. Traditional breakfast items were... More

A very good country breakfast with the biggest serving of country ham that I have ever received. Service is fast and food is served very hot. Erin our server was really on her game. It can get a little stuffy in here so go forewarned but go just the same. The eggs are served just right and the link sausage... More

Sunday Brunch at the Pony was a real treat. Even in Sept had a waiting list but not too long. They also have an outside area and an A/C waiting area.

though the breakfast was served fast, the potatoes were cold and the toast was so cold it would not melt the butter

We go there almost every morning while staying in Ocracoke. I've NEVER been disappointed. They're menu has a variety of dishes and will likely satisfy anyone. Oh, and the prices will not be beat either! You can easily be stuffed and your bill will be less than $8.

Pony Island is family-owned and -operated, and we've been going there for breakfast forever. The staff is alright... not bad but not great either. The food is basic and consistent, and I decided to look for something with really good breakfast food and found it elsewhere. I doubt we'll be going to Pony Island for breakfast anymore.

Had a good breakfast. It's dated, and I'm sure it's been there forever, but as a quick breakfast choice, it worked. I would go for lunch or dinner though, just breakfast.

PI is great. They are a typical diner and the only one on the island. Service is prompt and friendly (in true diner fashion). This is a compliment for those of us who appreciate a really good diner. There can be a wait on busy days, even in September. Good food at a reasonable price. You can't beat it.
