“Fish & Chips were tasty and light”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2011

I had the Reuben sandwich and pub chips - it was very good. The pastrami was lean and tasted very good. My wife had the special - Fish 'n Chips - she really enjoyed it; the fish was lightly fried in a very light batter, with a good taste and good tartar sauce with it.

“Good bar food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2011

We had wings, onion rings (onion straws, really), and boiled shrimp here. The beer was cold, the wings were tasty, and the shrimp was typical peel and eat. The onion rings were also good. This is not a fancy place. It's a very casual beer and bar food place that's easy to walk to in the middle of Ocean Isle Beach. Kids are also welcome and might have fun playing the juke box. The service was good -- attentive, not overbearing, and prompt. Just be relaxed and on vacation and you'll enjoy yourself. Then play minigolf next door and grab an ice cream to take to the pier and your evening will be complete.

“Salty's doesn't exist anymore”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2011

I've been going to Ocean Isle Beach every year since I was born and this establishment changes names/ownership a lot. Salty McDoogles is no longer there - it's been the Second St. Bar and Grill for a couple years now. I've never actually eaten there, but the drink specials are good and there's karaoke sometimes too.Don't pull an uppity tourist attitude though - it slows your service tremendously!
