Had a good meal at Toucan and wait staff were very attentive however the loud music from the tiki bar was annoying

My husband and I stayed at the Inn. We ate the grill for dinner. Excellent choice. Wonderful staff. Friendly environment. Great views if you eat outside.

It was hard to see the entrance because it faces the back of a waterfront hotel. The food was very good. The crab cake sandwich was very good but the lettuce which came on the platter looked a bit overheated. The grilled mahi-mahi Vietnamese style sandwich was delicious. We had a young boy waiting our table that seemed to be... More

Can't get any better than this for atmosphere! Yachts docking, live music, good food and good service. We have visited Oriental several times and always end up here eating or just enjoying the atmosphere.

A little hard to find but worth it!!!! Margaritas were great, as were the Crab Cakes, Mussels, New England Clam Chowder, homemade bread and butter. I had an amazing shrimp and scallop dish and they were kind enough to substitute spinach for the pasta it was supposed to be served on:) My husband had fried flounder... we live on a... More

After a boat ride up the waterway, the four of us were starved. We were so excited to find this place by the water but it was just not good. The ribs appetizer was inedible. We didn't eat a quarter of it. Some menu items weren't available and we heard another waiter tell the table behind us they were out... More

I felt as if the chef had plucked the flounder, oysters, crab, and clams right out of the water that was about a hundred feet in front of our table! Best New England style clam chowder I've ever had and the freshest tasting seafood I've ever eaten--and I've eaten a lot! Friendly staff and delicious food. We ordered the fried... More

Food and drink were wonderful. Such tender Mahi tenders..also tilapia bites as well. Staff very pleasant and engaging. Don't expect to see lots of the water.

We like to boat from Beaufort to Oriental and have lunch at Toucan Grill....good food, good service good drinks and good location.....what more needs to be said. Only complaint is the lack of places to dock a boat in front of the restaurant.

Thank Gary W
