Wonderful clams, delicious crabcakes

This is my favorite stop for steamed clams. Also, the crab cakes are very good. This is a very dependable stop for full meals or just sandwiches. Well run, land a well stocked bar. Located right on the water at Oriental marina and motel. Lots of boating activity. Nice Tiki bar is open during... read more

Have eaten here many times & always had a great meal served by friendly staff. They are always busy and the reason is GOOD FOOD. Graham's Mussels over Pasta are fantastic, but the Stuffed Flounder is no tiny fish & is a big meal. Mixed drinks are generous.. careful of the Marguritas!

My hubby and I have eaten at the Toucan Grill holiday buffet several times now, most recently for Thanksgiving. We made reservations for 1:30 and were seated promptly. The waiter took oir drink order and we went to the buffet, which was beautifully laid out. There was a great variety, but we focused on the protein - turkey, ham, and... More

The Toucan Grill is right by the Oriental town dock and a marina/hotel, so it's a great place to sit outside when the weather is nice and watch the boats come and go. I love their ribs.

If you like fried food, or burgers, this is your place. No substitutions are allowed. If you want plain fries, you're out of luck; as the fries are breaded. The bar is comfortable; and there are good TVs, and a selection of draft beers.

Two friends and I enjoyed dinner here on a Friday night. The hostess advised us on seating and took us to an indoor table. We got our drinks within a few minutes, served by a friendly waiter. Our shrimp cocktail appetizer was fresh, cold, and included 8 nice-sized shrimp, as it should here: the shrimp boats pull into the adjacent... More

We went to the Oriental Croaker Festival JULY 5 and had lunch here. The service was very good even though they were busy and food was also excellent. I would come here again and recomend this to others. Prices for lunch were very reasonable.

We sailed over to Oriental with some members of our Yacht Club and we all decided to have dinner at Toucan. There were 10 of us for dinner. The waitress was very busy but she did a very good job of waiting on our group. Everyone seem to be happy with their meals. I had the Prime Rib special and... More

Toucan Restaurant is a great choice when in Oriental, NC. Four of us had dinner and drinks at the bar. Melissa mixes wonderful drinks and is so nice and informative about her town. The food we had was all good [seafood and chicken] and we all left happy with our choices. We will be back!
