Awesome Culinary Innovation

Charles introduced a marinated, grilled red snapper with tempura asparagus. It was innovative and delicious! Thank you for offering something OTHER than burgers, fries, pizza, and fried fish!!

My husband, two friends, and myself took our boat across the Neuse River to have lunch here on April 8, 2015. Our first impression was very positive upon being greeted by exceptionally friendly staff. We were seated outside, overlooking the docks, and what a lovely view! Our server, Chris, was an absolute delight, with a warm and friendly personality. She... More

My family and I eat at the Toucan on Easter Sunday. The buffet was huge and very good. The food presentation was wonderful. We eat there every year and it is always good. It was a beautiful day and we were able to enjoy the water view. They always have what is called Scotch Eggs. These are hard boiled eggs... More

I have ate here a few times and my meal has always been great. I was sat rite away and Sam was our server and he was also great. Even though he was apparently new to this restaurant, you can tell he has been doing this type of work for some time and it showed. His personality had me laughing... More

Well, it's been a long time since I visited the Toucan Grill, and probably just as well. I'm an 8 yr long resident of the county. I was there with some new friends who had driven down from up north and their friend who lives on his boat, spring-fall. The cook who had been there for about 7 years was... 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!

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 the season. A great place to... More

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.
