Went to the fishing village of Wanchese, NC seeking seafood for lunch, but found Fisherman's Wharf oddly closed (for good?). Fortunately, we were directed to O'Neal's nearby. Half restaurant, half fresh fish market, the fish of the day was tilefish. My wife tried it in a basket & I had a sandwich - which wasn't on the menu, but O'Neal's... More

My partner and I were on Roanoke Island around lunchtime last week when we decided to go to O'Neal's Sea Harvest. It's away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, but well worth the trip.

I had the blackened shrimp BLT special. My husband had the soft shell crab BLT. I had the fruit as a side and... More

If you like soft shelled crabs and fresh fish you'll love this. A short drive from Manteo or Nags head. Open for lunch only (or retail fish--lots of folks were loading their coolers. Options for non-fish eaters. Quick take-out service and outdoor tables.

Stopped here again for their great seafood. Still haven't made it here to eat on the restaurant side, but the fresh seafood is of the best quality and the prices are great.

The staff helped this first timer and extremely friendly during a lunch hour rush! The food was the best seafood we had during a whole week of seafood on the Outer Banks.

Love this place! Had the Tile Fish which was delicious! Great sides, baked goods, and freshest fish to buy to cook back at the beach house. Friendly and helpful staff.

Best FRESH seafood around. Tried several other places been going to the outerbanks for 20 plus yrs. wish we would have found this Gem years ago. Friendly service good prices. Got 2 NICE pieces of tuna and 8 scallops (some places they won't count they just grab a handful young lady counted out ) for under 20 bucks.
