Wonderful place to rest and meet new people. Wine, beer, champagne and great cheeses, crackers, dried meat, speciality foods. Super. Everyone that works there are great very welcoming.
One unfortunate incident on wine tasting night, if you are just visiting the island and are unaware of their Thursday nite tasting group beware. They are territorial and pick up on anyone who is not a member, unfriendly. Just happened to walk back-in for another beer and wine sitting on the deck a boy met older woman passing out appetizers and pulled the dish right away in a very rude manner. The couple with them also leared at us like "what are you doing". Ooops sorry we stepped into a private get together. But don't let that keep you away they just need to address the the issue between the locals and tourists.

Zillies Island Pantry is a beer, wine (and gourmet foods) aficionado's island oasis! It had been several years since I had visited Ocracoke, when once it was an annual pilgrimage. On our most recent visit (to one of the best beaches/vacation spots on the east coast), we were barely checked into our house, when we dumped our bags, hopped onto our bikes and pedaled along the Live Oak bordered streets to sample Zillies. We had read about the place well in advance of getting there... And, um, I really enjoy wine, but I live for beer, and Zillies' selection most certainly did not disappoint. This place is simply awesome!

This is a place where you'll find yourself heading to everyday... whether to sit out on the deck, or simply grab n' go, it was a must stop for us each day we were there. And the folks that work there were incredibly nice, knowledgeable and just plain fun to talk to... If you visit Ocracoke, but fail to stop into Zillies... well, you have only yourself to blame.

Had a wonderful relaxing evening at Zillies. We chose several cheeses and crackers to accompany our drinks. The porch atmosphere and weather was great also

If you want a place to just sit outside, sip wine, and have an opportunity to make new friends here is the place to go. If beer is your drink of choice then there's plenty to choose from.
