Zillie's is a very low key wine bar that has an outstanding selection of beers and wines to try. The selection of gourmet food is also excellent for stocking up on biscuits, cheese, etc.

As it's one of a few places in Ocracoke not on the water, it doesn't attract a huge crowd, but it more than compensates by offering something more refined (but still casual) compared to the other bars on the Island. Prices aren't cheap, but given you're on Ocracoke, they're not unreasonable either. Certainly it is a unique place on the Island and worth checking out, particularly for anyone interested in gourmet food/drinks.

Such a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy a beer. This quaint little place has become a must-do when visiting OBX.

THE place to buy your craft brews, wine, and gourmet snacks on Ocracoke. They have a small but adequate cigar selection. If you are a foodie or have foodie-like aspirations, the staff can help you find something new and great to try. The porch on a pleasant afternoon or evening is the place to be to hang out with friends and try a new wine or beer. Cute gift items are also available. I never go to Ocracoke without hitting Zillies several times for treats to take back to the rental house.

Excellent selection of wines and beers. Very laid back atmosphere with friendly patrons and staff. A must stop on the island. Love the out of the way location. Well, as out of the way as you can be on Ocracoke!

Wonderful place to rest and meet new people. Wine, beer, champagne and great cheeses, crackers, dried meat, speciality foods. Super. Everyone that works there are great very welcoming.
One unfortunate incident on wine tasting night, if you are just visiting the island and are unaware of their Thursday nite tasting group beware. They are territorial and pick up on anyone who is not a member, unfriendly. Just happened to walk back-in for another beer and wine sitting on the deck a boy met older woman passing out appetizers and pulled the dish right away in a very rude manner. The couple with them also leared at us like "what are you doing". Ooops sorry we stepped into a private get together. But don't let that keep you away they just need to address the the issue between the locals and tourists.
