Fun decorations inside. I was really wanting to try good oysters and the oyster sampler was delicious. Did not taste too fishy and for two people who don't eat oysters often we really enjoyed them. I would go back to this restaurant for the crab dip alone. Close to the riverwalk. Large menu for a small place. Casual wear appropriate.

We stopped in for lunch while visiting Wilmington, NC. I. Had the Brisket Taco, it was pretty good. Had my Grandson who is 7 years old, they did not have a real kids menu, the items they did have on their kids menu were not the typical items. Service was a bit slow and we had to wait for one
Meal to be served, the rest were almost done eating. I might go back with only adults for Oysters but not anything else , but there are too many other choices around. Don't quite understand the 24th place rating?

We love kids !! It is true we do not have the "typical" Kids menu. We serve nothing fried and do not have fried chicken nuggets or fried shrimp. We do offer healthy alternatives such as quesadilla's and pasta dishes and none are over $4 . We have reached out to this reviewer with no response and are truly sorry for the impression they have of DSOB. Steve

My girlfriend and I both had the brisket tacos, as they cam highly recommended. We were not disappointed at all! Our server was great. We spent a bit more time in there than planned due to heavy rains and had a lot of laughs with our server!

Thanks for taking the time to write such a nice review. The brisket tacos is my favorite non- seafood item also as well. We pride ourselves in people having a good time as well as enjoying the food !! Thanks again ... Steve

We went here twice while on vacation. The specials are to die for. No fried food here!! Had the grilled mahi and the catfish. Simply great! Kids loved the snicker doodle pie. Great service!!

Funky atmosphere and great seafood. Try one of the house specialities, you won't be disappointed. Lots of locals make this a regular dining spot.
