Good seafood- as expected

Ok service and seafood- bit pricey- no wait which was odd as there was a wait at other places in the area---tip off? Would I return- prob not. Not super impressed as it was nothing special for the $$

Love the Yacht basin. Food is always excellent, fresh, and consistent. They seem to be shorthand often which can be aggravating when you've waited 45 mins for a table. To bad they are battling the town and surrounding business owners who are stifling their business plans. Very biased and unfair. Don't give up Jill!

The food here is excellent. They have a wide variety of food. I had the sweet chili wings and the cobb salad. We had to go back a second time just to have the wings again. The grouper and cobb salad were also delicious. We sat on the water and had a wonderful view of the lighthouse on oak island.... More

Specials are always good. I've heard the pizza is great but never tried it. The deserts are out if this world don't miss out on the especially the salted Carmel pecan pie.

It just seemed like people who worked their weren't happy that day. The hostess said we could be seated in 15 but the food would take over an hour because kitchen staff was short. Food was so so. Parking was a nightmare. View was great.

My husband, teenage daughter, and I decided to eat here based on another friend's recommendation. It did NOT disappoint. We had great outdoor seating overlooking the marina at sunset, the food was delicious (I had the fish taco, my husband got a lb of peel and eat shrimp and my daughter had pasta with chicken) and the best part was...

Very-very casual eatery on the water. Good peel and eat shrimp,grilled tuna, crab cake and even hamburger/hot dogs if you're not a seafood fan. My favorite is grilled tuna on salad with vinaigrette dressing.

Food was surprisingly good, though they do close between 3 -4 pm. Nice breeze off of the water, made it nice.

We took our youth group while we were at Caswell on Oak Island. The food was delicious. They have a good variety and it comes out quickly. Being able to sit and eat on the water is a highlight of the week for us. With a large group you need to go early.

If you want to sit at the waterfront and have a bite to eat and a refreshing beverage, walk an additional block and go to fishy-fishy. We are are frequent visitors to the area and own property on Oak Island so we're pretty familiar with the local restaurants; however, we'd not tried YBE. We were there with the grand kids... More
