We stopped by Oriental by boat and had dinner here. Our Waitress was very good and the restaurant was very clean. It was off season so the options were limited. I was very pleased at the service and food here

Checked this place out during the Cycle NC Bicycle Ride and they were packed. Did not mind the wait for porch seating and inside dining also looked quite comfortable. Food was great, service was really good, and loved the marina setting

We went to this restaurant when the tiny town of Oriental was swamped with thousands of visitors for a very large event. The manager (Justin), the bar tender, and the wait staff handled it all very well. They were up front about how long the wait would be, offered us comfortable seating and drinks out on the lawn, and came... More

We were here on the North Carolina coastal bike ride, and had dinner at this restaurant. The food was good, service was good, variety was limited. However we would recommend it to others

We love this place. The food is very good. I had a crab cake appetizer - all crab meat, very little filler, very nicely seasoned. I also had their version of shrimp cocktail, which is huge cold shrimp served in a cup of salsa and avocado - excellent. My husband a burger and onion rings and was pleased with both.... More

The food is always very good. Servers are always a pleasure. The restaurant, and the adjoining Tiki Bar, are located within the hotel, marina and restaurant property, so it is a really attractive waterfront location. One of my favorite places.

Outside Dinner seating with friends. Beautiful water and boats view. Had a wonderful dinner . The Grouper was fresh and delicious. They offered a good wine choice with this entree. We shared the warm yummy peach rum bread pudding. A must try. Thank you will be back.

The town has changed considerably since our last visit in 1996. Our dining experience here at TOUCAN was disappointing. The Lime Margarita Shrimp Cocktail $10 came in a bowl with a sauce of a few chunks of avocado. The 6 small shrimp again NOT DEVEINED were dried out and chewy. Over all flavor and presentation didn't justify being charging $10.... More

The toucan is right on the marina, with a porch offering views of sailboats (mostly). The seafood is very good, but there are other choices. Having eaten there many times, it is always good. Adult drinks are available at the bar. Often during warmer months there is often live music playing at the adjoining pool/motel. The atmosphere is welcoming and... More

The best fried flounder anywhere. My wife and I eat there often. They staff is great. Crab cakes is another favorite. My cousin loved them tuna on their lite list. There Tiki Bar during their time from St. Patrick's thru Christmas is a great meeting place.
