Brantley's is a simple restaurant with great food and reasonable prices. Expect sweet tea rather than alcoholic drinks on the list of available beverages. The service is fast and a hometown friendliness prevails. Great buffets for breakfast and lunch!

Enjoyed this visit during Croaker Festival weekend! The owner greeted us at the door.We were seated.promptly and our waitress Crystal was on the ball! The food was hot and delicious and the variety impressive for a small town kind of place.

Breakfast, lunch or dinner, always great. never had a bad meal. Lots of variety. Great local seafood. There is usually always a small buffet that looks good but usually order a special.

My wife and I stopped by for breakfast and the place was packed. They only had two waitresses working so service was spotty although friendly. I ordered the ham and cheese omelette with hash browns and my wife had the breakfast burrito. Both were good although nothing that would set them apart from any of the other places in the... More

Brantley's was a pleasant surprise. It's a down home restaurant with great food and service. Decor is fairly plain, but the real treasure is the food. Prices are moderate, but a good value. Definitely returning here on my next visit to Oriental!

This place is obviously popular with locals as they crowded around the central buffet filling their plates with the daily special of Fried Chicken and Collards. We decided to try Ms. Sil's Famous Down East Clam Chowder - full of clams and obviously authentic with some gritty bites ! Friendly service but don't expect any frills here.

I have been to Brantley's about 6 times , It is really currently the only place you can get a full breakfast in oriental nc. The food at best is average but the coffee is terrible which for the most part seems to be a nc situation. I suggest you buy a cup at the bean coffee shop and bring... More

This is a good place to see the locals, taste the flounder, and feel like a part of the culture of Oriental, NC. It is definitely not fancy, so prepare for diner-type food and atmosphere. Options include buffet and/or sandwiches.

Thank Beth R
