If you want cheap seafood and canned vegetables that are subpar with okay hush puppies and imitation butter at inflated prices, then by all means go to this restaurant. Not only is the food just average but the ownership is very rude. Obviously they have enough business that they do not care whether you come back or not. Don't expect... More

Went to oak island on a trip and stopped by the restaurant. Got a shrimp and oyster plate. The food was ok, it is the same as you can get at the local seafood house near your house, deep fried frozen seafood. Our waitress was a young lady but very polite. The cashier which was the owner I assume was... More

My hubby does not eat much seafood and on our visit last year he wanted to eat here every day! We loved loved the fresh fish! It was juicy and a huge portion. The wait was a little long but the food was so good that we didn't mind. Lots of local people eating here so you know it's good.

The owner came out with the meal, and told my son he hoped he enjoyed his meal as he had just created that specialty that morning. He asked later how he liked it. My son was impressed with the meal and the care. The staff were nice and attentive. The selection was decent. Glad we stopped.

We ate here the evening before we left to come back home. This is a great place, with good prices, and the flounder is just excellent. I wish we had eaten here at least twice while we were at Oak Island. It's very popular, so come early so you won't have to wait for like an hour as we did.

I went here with my son and husband and we all had breakfast. My son loved the sausage and my omelette was excellent. We would recommend Oak Island Restaurant to anyone!

We ate there several times while visiting the island and were pleased each time. My wife had the fried fish one day and enjoyed it while I had the lunch special of cube steak and 2 veggies. All the meals were served quickly and the waitress was very attentive. As mentioned, check their times and days of operation, as they... More
