“Best Oyster Bar in Pitt County”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

We visit Wimpies about once or twice a month in season and always have a great time. Expect to spend $75/ couple if you are having appetizer, a peck of oysters and some beers. While some may see this as pricey, seafood is expensive so the price is in line with what one should expect.

With the re-opening more oyster bars have been added so there is plenty of seats with oyster shucking, but get there early especially with larger parties if you plan to sit at one of the oyster bars. But no fear, see Scott behind the bar grab a beer and relax cause you are there for the laid back, relaxing vibe. Will hate to see them closed May-August but will definitely be back in September.

“Gathering of the Joyous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

Wimpie's clients are a very happy group. When it reopened, the celebration was very visible, very crowded, and very joyous! The oysters are drop dead terrific. The specials more than noteworthy; last Saturday's swordfish was great. Weekend music always to high quality.

“Vulgarity”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

Cutting off a small group to make room for waiting customers is certainly a business tactic.
As a proprietor, selecting whom you serve is at your discretion.
Raging cussing at a customer is outright unacceptable.
We are local to Winterville, but we have made our LAST trip to Wimpies.
Im upset that my kids had to hear that.
We saw other groups leave as they heard the foul language as well.
We didnt have seafood
Food bad. Service bad. Manager foul mouth.

“Welcome back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

I'm overly fussy about restaurants, but my large group (on a busy night) had a very good experience with at the rebooted Wimpie's. This is a nicely run casual local restaurant and oyster bar. The very-nice owner was super involved (chipping in to shuck oysters, seating guests), and that made all the difference. I'm looking forward to my next visit. Please, go support this plucky local restaurant. You'll enjoy it.

“Welcome back, Wimpie's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Glad to see Wimpie's come back to Winterville! On a recent Thursday evening, my husband and I had a very nice meal seated at one of the tables. When we were seated, we had been told that we could order steamed oysters from our table, but when our server came to take our order, she explained that this was not the case because there were not enough shuckers. We were disappointed, but opted to stay at our table and have the oysters on the half shell. These were good (only one was rather tiny). There appeared to be a private party in the other dining area, so perhaps that was why not enough shuckers for the evening. Over all, our experience was positive: good food and attentive service. But when we return, we will sit at the bar in order to enjoy the oysters.
