We ate here at least 3 times during our vacation. Uncle Ike's had the best fish sandwich I have ever had. It was perfectly grilled fresh caught Mahi Mahi and we loved it. The atmosphere was nice too and the waitress was very nice and quick. The drinks were to die for as well. I ordered a Rum Runner every... More

Went to Uncle Ike's for the first time this past week for an early dinner. We had the crab dip with pita bread which was awesome. I had the seafood platter which was a crab cake, fish, shrimp and a couple of sides. Everything was good. Portions weren't very large, but good quality. My wife had the salmon imperial which...

After wild horse tour we needed food. Had several choices right in same center. We chose correctly. My companion loves fried pickles and wasn't disappointed! The crab quesadillas were excellent too. Service was fast and waitress very friendly.

Just discovered Uncle Ike's this week. Always looking for a new breakfast place and this did not disappoint. Regular breakfast items plus a few different things...the breakfast burrito was really good. Friendly service and a casual atmosphere means we'll be going back.

We've been visiting OBX intermittently for the past decade. We usually rent a home in the Corolla area during the latter part of September when the restaurants aren't jam-packed with long lines as they can be during the summer months. We've explored several eateries in the area of Duck and Corolla over past years but stopped into Uncle Ike's for... More

Nice find in Corolla. Great food & relaxed atmosphere. Cornhole boards outside add to the fun. Would have gone back had we had more time.

My mother and I ate here after our Backcountry Safari Tour and were very pleased with the service, food and staff. The crab and grilled chicken sandwich was delicious! Will definitely return our next visit!

Delicious, fresh, friendly and great service from Sara. I had the shrimp and scallop po boy, it was amazing tender perfectly fried seafood tucked inside a wrap. Service was great, Sara was informative and very attentive to us and our toddlers needs.

Uncle Ike's Sandbar & Grill is tucked away in the Corolla Light Shops in Corolla, NC. The blackened fish tacos are the best in the Outer Banks. The menu is varied from appetizers to dinners and everything in between. The restaurant is always busy and the bar and night life are always hopping. It is a place not to be... More
