They try but fall short on just about everything. I ordered a fried fish sandwich and my fiancé orders a burger. When we got our food my husbands burger was so over cooked he could barely eat it. I ended up sending my sandwich back ( which was the first time in 35 years of eating out on my travels... More

We used to live on Oak Island and returned for a week at the beach in October (a great time to come!). We couldn't wait to get back to Shagger Jacks and it didn't disappoint. The popular items (think fish tacos and much more) are still on the menu, but they also always have great specials that we love to... More

We went for a late lunch early dinner. Sat at a bar top table. Service was great, everyone was pleasant and they made you feel like a local. Would definitely visit again. Food was delicious!!! Beer was nice and cold.

This is one of those restaurants that is frequented by locals. It's a typical beach style restaurant but serves some interesting takes on beach fare. We started off with some drink specials but though they were interesting, they were pretty weak. We ordered the brie stuffed hush puppies and they were such a step up from the traditional hush puppies!... More

At first glance, I had my doubts, but upon entering and being seated, the experience was all good from there. The service was good, the server was so pleasant and very attentive and the food was excellent. The food was hot when it arrived at our table and was attractively served. The restaurant became very busy while we were there,... More

This was our first time in Oak Island and, quite honestly, we weren't too impressed....until we found this place! Everything was so good and the bartender, Becky, was so great that it literally changed our opinion of the area. The homemade key lime pie is amazing too! Really really delicious food with nutritious options. Many burger choices which were all... More

My boyfriend and I went in tonight for dinner as he's in town for work. We ordered a drink off their specials called the shaggers sipper. Sounded tasty. Sadly though, they were very weak drink and not worth $6.50. Fortunately, the food was great! I had a half salad and 1lb. crab legs. The seasoning was very good. But I... More

Stopped in for drinks and a lite bite to eat with family from Scotland. They had never had Hush Puppies so we ordered some to share. Not only were they a hit with them but my husband and I agreed they were the best we've ever had. The service was great and the other food we ordered was aware. I... More

Shagger Jacks looks very inviting from the outside. However, after much debate and 1 previous bad experience years ago, I gave in and pulled in the gravel lot to this place. I was optimistic this time around for, the place has been opened for a while and there are always people there. WRONG! From the get go, it is dirty... More

My wife and I had a very good dinner last night. It was a bit hard to hear with some really loud beer drinking guys nearby but that's the bar scene. I got the Salmon salad, which was perfectly prepared and excellent tasting. My wife got fried flounder, which was excellent. Her slaw was also fantastic, sweet with apples and... More
