Once again Oneal's brings the best fresh fish to the lunch menu. The Cobia poboy was supurb. I loved the fish, bread and the fries. I don't usually eat fries but here they are hot, crisp and delicious. The opportunity to see the fresh catch being fileted assures this is the best😙

We ordered two dozen #1 live (green) blue crabs. We like them green, because we enjoy cooking them. When we went to pick them up, we thought they looked awful scrawny. We eat blue crabs on a regular basis throughout the summer and we know how big a # 1 large male crab should look like. Well, these crabs were... More

This is primarily a first class seafood market that also serves lunch with local character. Walk in the door and smell of fish is strong, so strong we decided to eat outside on the porch where there is a view of the parking lot and warehouses. No frills menu, everything is fried, no grilled seafood options, just fried everything, including... More

When planning our trip to Roanoke Island we found O'Neals via Trip Advisor and couldn't wait to try it. We had to wait till they opened on Monday and were not disappointed.

After finally making the effort to go to Wanchese, we were not disappointed in our shrimp baskets for lunch. The seafood was so fresh and delicious. You cannot go wrong with the boats nearby and the market in the restaurant. Just wish we lived closer and could do this more often.

You will not find fresher seafood because their seafood comes right from the docks. You can by seafood to take home to cook or you can eat there. Seriously, if you are looking for fresh seafood, set your GPS for O'Neal's.

We've been coming to O'Neals for over 20 years! Can't find fresher fish anywhere. Often had to wait and watch them filet the catch of the day. These people are wonderful locals who work very hard to serve us visitors. Lunch is tasty also!
