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!

This place is not fancy, but the food is much, much better than you would expect. It is in the heart of quaint Oriental and located next to the marina. We usually come to Oriental by boat and love the burgers here, but we have also tried many other things on the menu and the rest of the food is... More

I'm sorry to say that our lunch experience at Toucan Grill was very bad. We arrived at 12:30, spoke to a waiter at the door, who passed us to the hostess (who didn't even turn around or acknowledge us), and then another waitress kindly seated us and brought us water, telling us that our actual waitress would be with us...

We didn't eat there but had cocktails at night in the courtyard, listening to the live music. MIT is on the docks. Returned the next afternoon for cocktails. Will return.

Stopped in last night with the grand kids and friends. I had the best New England clam chowder I have had in a long time. Also they had switch eggs on the menu you do't see these in to many restaurants they were great. Crab cakes were great as well. I mentioned great desserts we did not have any but... More

The Toucan has great food. I think they're a little pricy, but I don't mind paying the price, if I can count on the food being good. I have no complaints. No matter how many times I've eaten there, the food is consistently good. I've never been disappointed, and the service is dependable. Good stop for anyone.

The food was very good and the dessert was even better. Chocolate by death or something like that. Very enjoyable location. The waitress forgot to tell us about the specials and we had already ordered but it turned out ok anyway.

Such a beautiful spot for a restaurant! Overlooking the harbor, great view. We gave the lady our name for a party of 7 at 5:30 pm on a Thursday night. There were empty tables: they told us to expect a 6:45 table. We had drinks across the lawn at the Tiki bar. We sat down at 7:15. They put us... More

We ate here for three dinners on our most recent stay. As we had remembered from our visit last fall, the staff is very friendly and willing to go the extra mile to meet your needs. Fresh seafood is their specialty, and their reputation is well deserved. If they have a fault, it is that their servings tend to be... More
