Worth the trip

If you're anywhere remotely near Wanchese, Roanoke Island, NC....make the trip to O'Neals Sea Harvest. FRESH seafood, friendly people, and great atmosphere. We've been twice, and will try to fit in another meal before we have to go home. We'll be back next year!

O'Neal's is a very casual, family run restaurant & seafood store. They write your order, you take it to the kitchen window, and they call you when it's ready. VERY fast. Food was excellent, very reasonable prices. Soft drinks only. Full of locals, but a number of out-of-state tags. Word must be getting out. Lunch only - hours Mon. -... More

O'Neals is a very cool place in the Wanchese harbor. At the next table you are just as likely to encounter the CEO of a large public company or a crewman on one of the long line fishing boats berthed in Wanchese. The reason is that O'Neals is very good food, extremely authentic and a bargain. We enjoyed lunch there... More

The reviews were so promising. We pull up at lunch and the place is packed. Staff was friendly and showed u how to order, pay, then take your order to the kitchen. It all tasted the same. My shrimp tasted just like my husbands fish, plus the okra. I'm fine with simple baskets, it's just this was the same breading... More

Been hearing about this place for a few years so decided to drop in for lunch. Excellent choice. The seafood cannot be any fresher and it is well and quickly prepared. This is not fine dining but a local place to grab a quick lunch that will not disappoint. I am told that most people come in for take out... More

Located in a seafood industrial area off the beaten path, but worth the drive! Great fresh seafood at a great price. We ate here twice for lunch during our week in the area.

Would have liked to have tried soft shell crab, Didn't see it until we got home. They had a large selection of fresh seafood offerings but wife does not want to cook... More

My wife and I stopped by after reading the reviews here. We loved the food!! We were there during the lunch hour, and took advantage of the lunch specials. The wife had shrimp, and I had the soft shell crab. We both opted for fried okra, instead of fries....GOOD MOVE!! The plate was flooded with lightly breaded, fried Okra. Yummy!!... More

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 comment was, "These are the best fried oysters we have ever... 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...
