“Great Live Music!”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

Very happy to sit and listen to a steel drum band while it rained like crazy outside. Even though we could only visit the beach once during our stay on Ocracoke due to the weather, hanging out at the Topless Oyster made it still seem like it was a tropical getaway. Good beer selection and friendly wait staff.

“drinks and an appetizer”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

we stopped for drinks but the food they were carting to the patio looked great so we ordered some wings and oysters from the appetizers at the bar, very good, and the bartender was very cordial, informative, and on top of things . we had a good time so we stayed for a couple more drinks. did I mention they had live music?

“Nice staff--good music!”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

This place is nice and laid back--however, so laid back that cats wandered under and around our table while we ate, and the kids were entertained by the giant roaches climbing all around on the porch!! Wow! But, it's the beach...

“Not worth the money”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

Our first trip to Ocracoke and we decided to try the shrimp and oysters happy hour special. One pound of shrimp, one dozen extremely small oysters, two small salads, and two beers cost over $40. Remember, this was happy hour! Only plus is that our waiter was very conscientious and service was good. With so many other choices on Ocracoke, I would advise getting more bang for your buck elsewhere.

“Very different menu”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

They've recently changed their menu, so beware - the menu we saw online was much different than the one we saw when we got there. Everyone had their heart set on something from the online menu, and the new menu had none of those things. Tons of oyster options, but the rest of the seafood options were pretty uninspired. The food was just okay - a bit too salty, although we loved the pork tacos. The music inside was super loud, but the deck was nice. The service was great.
