With all the rave reviews about flounder here, we were sorely disappointed: we got the lemon pepper grilled flounder, which was overcooked, over salted and had an off-taste from imitation butter. Onion rings were soggy and oily, vegetables canned, hush puppies ok. The baked sweet potato was very good: the only thing that was fresh and unsalted. Our server was... More

Order the flouder! Fried looked wonderful but I ordered the grilled, cajun style. Careful though, there are bones.

Well, its a family favorite. The wife loves it due to it "southern" feel. The portions are massive and the sweet tea flows constant. Prices are good, and service is ok. Its a busy place, and usually requires a wait. The food is great. Well worth the wait.

We were looking to eat next door at a popular seafood restaurant but were told it was a 2 hour wait. Walked next door and 9 of us were seated immediately. Friendly and very efficient staff. Food was beyond excellent for the price. Skip all the "seafood" places and eat here !

Two friends and I went to Oak Island Restaurant for breakfast last Sunday morning, July 30th. Having lived in the area for 16 years I wasn't aware this place served breakfast, but passing by the usual breakfast places on that Sunday and seeing many people waiting outside, we kept driving and saw this place and since it's a big place...

Great service! Great atmosphere! I ordered the Flounder Special, but had the flounder grilled with Lemon Pepper. THE BEST FLOUNDER I HAVE EVER TASTED. Amazing. Make sure you try it! Taking leftovers home!
