A Must for Manteo

On a cold and blustery day we looked to Oneals for a fresh seafood lunch. We were not disappointed. This very informal market/eatery in the seafood industrial/waterfront in tiny Wanchese is a winner. We each had the same: lightly fried local oysters with okra as the side. Our mid-lunch... read more

We have been going to the Outer Banks for 15 years and finally stumbled on O'Neals. We are so glad we did. Not only were we able to eat a yummy lunch, but we were able to buy scallops for dinner that night. You can't get much fresher and local than stopping at O'Neals. We look forward to our trip...

My boyfriend and I were just exploring around trying to find something different to do or try. I have been to outer banks every summer for 8 years and have loved it always. But this place we stumbled upon while lost and it was the best fresh sea food we had down there. It was nothing fancy but the taste... More

This place was great! This is actually a fresh seafood market with a small dining room for lunch. The seafood lunches are fabulous. My wife ordered a ribeye sandwich that was tremendous. If you are on Roanoke Island do not miss this place.

If you are looking for the place where all the "locals" go for lunch and/or to purchase their seafood,this is it! Whether you are ordering lunch, or the catch of the day (to cook at home) you can't beat the price, freshness, cleanliness, or service! When we go, we not only enjoy the great seafood, but they also make a... More

Had the fish of the day - tilefish and onion rings - all fried to perfection! Not much of a fish selection if you don't want the fish of the day! All seemed to be fried. It is what it is and the fish is excellent. Need to go elsewhere to round out you day to include fresh vegetables! Will... More

Good choice with the understanding that this is first and foremost a business that sells very fresh seafood and as a secondary business offers a limited menu. The business in the marina business section of Wanchese. Dirt parking lot with a few tables inside and a couple outside. Wether buying seafood or ordering a meal, one orders from the counter....

Only way to get fresher seafood is to go out on the boat with the waterman and cook it on the boat. I had been eating seafood all week so I chose a burger instead. Even that was great, hand made patty, cooked on an open flame and a nice fresh roll with a tomato that tasted like it came... More
