“Great staff & Store”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

We used Trip Advisor to plan a day trip to Ocracoke Island and after reading about Zillies we had to go here. They did not disappoint. Great selection of beer and wine no matter what your tastes are. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly and could point you in the right direction. We grabbed a few beers and some wine and sat out on their nice shady patio to enjoy them. Great stop.

“Great selection & friendly service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

Enjoyed sitting out on the deck with our selections of drafts, bottles of beer and snacks. Could use a leeeetle more seating, but other than that - great!

“Great little bottle shop with an excellent craft beer selection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

Having read about their selection of craft beers and wines on TA, we made it a point to make Zillie’s our first stop on the island, after getting off of the ferry and unpacking, to have a few drinks before dinner and kick off our vacation. We ended up here a few more times during our stay, both to have drinks on the patio and to buy some beers to take down to the beach with us.

They had eight different craft beers on tap (including one or two local brews), as well as a fairly impressive selection of bottles. Given the somewhat remote location of Ocracoke, we were pleasantly surprised by not only the number of different craft beers that they had available, but also the fact that all were very reasonably priced; we had initially assumed that bottle prices would be higher by simple virtue of their location – we were (happily) incorrect on that point.

During our visits we chatted with both William and Alex for a bit, both of whom were very knowledgeable about beer, and both made a few great recommendations for bottles that we had not previously tried. We also enjoyed simply relaxing on the patio while we sampled several beers from their taps and their cooler. They generally had a fairly energetic (but not boisterous) crowd out on the deck, and we wound up talking with a few of the locals, as well as several other vacationers, while hanging out there in the late afternoon.

In short, Zillie’s is a great little bottle shop with an excellent selection of craft beers and wines – anyone who enjoys either would do well to make at least one stop in here while on Ocracoke.
