Pelican’s Perch

If you could bring your neighborhood restaurant to the beach with you, it would be Pelican’s Perch. This casual lunch spot, located on Ocean Isle Beach, is a favorite among our staff because of their juicy burgers, amazing fried seafood, and laid-back atmosphere. Be sure to stop in during your Ocean Isle Beach vacation. Flip-Flops are fine here! Plan on staying a bit… the crowd is friendly and the bar is open, so grab a cold one and make yourself at home. You can find the Pelican’s Perch at 8 E 2nd Street, Ocean Isle Beach.

The Purple Onion Cafe

Located in Shallotte, NC, the Purple Onion Cafe has been serving up breakfast to the local community since 2004. Open for breakfast every day from 6:30 am to 10:45 am, the Purple Onion serves up great dishes like breakfast burritos and sandwiches, as well as traditional breakfast fare like omelets, pancakes, and French toast. You’ll find the atmosphere is casual and friendly. You can find the cafe in beautiful Shallotte, just down the road from your Ocean Isle Beach vacation rental. Put 4647 Main St, Shallotte, NC in your GPS, and you’re on your way to a great start to your day.

Roberto’s Ristorante

Roberto’s is a family owned and operated restaurant here on Ocean Isle Beach. Roberto’s features seafood with an Italian flair. Dishes like shrimp scampi and chicken piccata are sure to keep you coming back year after year. A moderately priced destination, it still retains the casual atmosphere you’re looking for. If you’re craving something more than just fried seafood, this is the place to be. You can find Roberto’s at 6737 Beach Drive SW, Ocean Isle Beach, NC.

Inlet View Bar & Grill

Resting on the intersection of the Shallotte River and the ICW, this is the perfect waterfront restaurant to end your day. Owned and operated by the same family since 1978, the Inlet is heaven for seafood lovers. The Inlet View Bar & Grill proudly serves only 100% wild caught local seafood. You won’t find frozen fish flown in from a million miles away here. For dinner, we don’t want to tell you what to do or anything, but you should try the Captain A.L. Dinner, which includes NC flounder and shrimp. Head over to 1800 Village Point Road, SW, Shallotte, for one of the best views… and the best food in the area.
