We recently vacationed on Ocean Isle Beach and were extremely pleased to find The Isles. Dinner was exceptional. We started with the baked oysters, done to perfection with spinach topped with Boursin cheese, they melted in our mouths. We followed that with Shrimp scampi which was equally as good. The wine list is large and offers something in all price ranges. We drank a Chilian Chardonnay with dinner. After dinner we had a night cap at the tiki bar overlooking the ocean. All and all a wonderful experience.

“Best place to eat in Ocean Isle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2010

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary there and had a wonderful experience. Even though there were three wedding parties also eating dinner at the restaurant, our server Codi took awesome care of us and we did not notice anyone looking stressed out or unhappy. We started our meal with a margarita and the signature martini made with cucumber vodka. Both drinks were delicious and totally refreshing after a day at the beach. We had the crab dip and she crab soup for appetizers and these selections were flavorful and featured huge lumps of fresh crab. Because we just could not get enough seafood, we had the crab cake salad and fish stuff with crab for dinner and both were amazing....the salad was very fresh and green and the crab cakes were packed with crabmeat with very very little breading and the fish just melted in your mouth. Prices were very reasonable, especially since everything came with a beautiful ocean view. The restaurant is in a great location, the staff is on point and the food is phenomenal. This would be a great place for a wedding or special event and we cannot wait to go back!

My wife and I had a great experience at the Isle Restaurant. The atmosphere and service were first class and the price was more than reasonable. Did I mention that the food was awesome? If you are near Ocean Isle, do treat yourself to one of the best dinning experiences in the area!
