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!

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
