Sitting on the porch with favorite brew or wine, mid 70s temperature and a breeze. Could not ask for more. New to us, electronic listings of available beers on tap and wine by the glass were a nice feature. Lots of cheese and cracker snacks...if you are so inclined.More

I loved Zillie’s! We went there twice on our three day stay in Ocracoke. It’s listed as a restaurant on trip advisor but it’s NOT a restaurant. You can buy beer/wine and cheese/meats/crackers inside. If you want to stay they’ll give you a charcuterie board...to style with your purchases and you can eat it and drink your drinks on your porch. 10/10 would recommend. I absolutely loved the vibe! You have to try their fig preserveMore

Zillies has a nice porch with big gas fire pots to ease the chill. They don't have a wide food selection mostly munchies and drinks can be pricy. Still, its a fun afternoon stop

We discovered Zillies on our first trip to Ocracoke and always visit when on the island! My husband and I had been touring the island on foot and when we found Zillies we were excited! This was back before they had beer taps, wine tastings...and had expanded. Boy were we pleasantly surprised when we returned after that! If you like wine, beer or tasty snacks this is the place for you. They also have funny cards and other items. You can get a draft beer, make a six pack and so much more.More

Upscale “snacks”. Unbelievable selection of beers. Very clean. Friendly service. We bought a couple beers, some souvenirs, some Charcuterie items (the Bloody Mary Olives are a MUST). We were provided a cutting board and knife to enjoy our selections on the porch. Great atmosphere!

Best place for high end grocery items. Cheeses, crackers, wine, etc. Glad I found it. Did not eat there.

No issues with COVID. People wore mask inside and everybody sat outside and drank. Met and talked to some great people who were visiting also. It will be on my next visit to the island.

Nice wine bar off the beaten path. Prices were ok, not cheap. They did have a wide selection of wine and other eats . Their front deck was nice for sitting out and sampling you wine you just bought. I will go there again.

Great selection of beer, wine, and gourmet snacks in Ocracoke. They have several brews on tap and will allow tasting prior to purchase. Hey, you're on vacation. Treat yourself to some fine beverages and snacks. Enjoy.

We stopped in here one afternoon to choose gifts to take home for my daughter and granddaughter who where taking care of plants and hurricane prep at our house while we were away. The young lady there helped me choose wines, and then I went...on to choose some salamis and chocolate snacks to put in their gift bags. We decided to stop back for snacks for us the next afternoon. We sat on the patio and enjoyed cheese, salami, and drinks with our golden retriever. We felt very safe as the tables were now six feet apart, and everyone was very careful to wear masks. We enjoyed it so much that after enjoying a big breakfast the next day, we went back and made a lunch of the same cheese and salami, but this time added some pickles and pickled asparagus. It was the perfect light lunch. Zillie's has become a favorite place on the island.More
