“A Thanksgiving tradition for us!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We have Thanksgiving on Ocracoke Island and Zillies has become part of our tradition. On the Wednesday night before Thanksgiving, we go to the wine tasting at Zillies. Fun to do, great selection of wines to taste-paired with selected food offerings from the pantry shelves, and a great break from cooking!

The pantry has tons of great snacks, wines, and new things to try. There is a wonderful outdoor seating venue--complete with firepits!

“Always a favorite when we visit Ocracoke”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Zillies is a laid back beer/wine and gourmet shop. We highly reccommend splitting a bottle of wine or fine craft brew outside on the porch around the fire pits! Love everything about this place!

“A unique and interesting place to visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Zillies has a wide selection of wines, beer, and various other items. My husband enjoyed putting together his own six pack of beer, and we loved the Carolina wine. If you're looking for a nice place to unwind and relax during your stay on Ocracoke, look no further. Be advised the prices can be a bit high, depending on the item.

“A place to chill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Oodles of beers and nice things to munch on in an out-of-the-way quiet place on the back road. Very friendly service and a pleasant place to hang for a while.

“Not a restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

No fault to Zillies, but this place shouldn't be categorized as a restaurant. They have a great beer and wine selection, but don't serve food. Great place to relax and have a drink, but don't go expecting to have dinner. Unless you consider cheese and crackers a meal.
