I had a crab cake sandwich that was delicious. We had great service and the atmosphere was nice. I will be back on my next trip to Oak Island.

Nice size horseshoe shaped bar and plenty of fish selections on a Friday evening says "Supper Club".
If you are from the Midwest, Supper Club designation means a comfortable atmosphere, drinks are generous, service and food great. While a bit priceier than a usual supper club, the food selection was large and quality was good. One nice thing is that many entrees were on the Appetizer List offering a smaller portion at a reduced price. Serivice by Mike was outstanding. We will definitely go again.

If my memory is working, I think this restaurant has been in business on OKI longer than almost any other. We visit at least once every year, and this year didn't disappoint. I tried the whole baby flounder, based on other ++ reviews. Glad someone mentioned to flip it over; there's delicious fish on both sides. My husband laughed at me and all that was left of my cute little fish skeleton. He gave the ribs a thumbs up. A bit too spicy for him, but he's got a low tolerance for heat. I would rate a 5 overall if they would freshen up the interior without losing the comfy personality, of course.

During a girls' weekend, Turtle Island Restaurant was recommended by locals along with good reviews on TA. Our group had the grouper, shrimp and flounder, grilled chicken salad and blackened grouper - everyone was pleased! We look forward to visiting again.
