We'd been on the water for almost 30 hours and were quite hungry and tired. M&M's was extremely convenient to the downtown docks (though nothing is that far in Oriental). We sat in the screened in porch which was cooler and felt very homey. We...More

Place isn't much to look at but we tried dining inside and returned later to dine again on the porch. Found some really good seafood dishes. Would have liked to try a couple of the desserts but portions were larger than expected.

We ate lunch here a few days ago, enjoyed sitting on the large screened in porch. We had the fresh homemade tuna salad and chicken salad on greens with tomato, cucumber, and melon. Really yummy. The service was quick and attentive.

Visiting Oriental for the first time and decided to visit this restaurant near the water. Very friendly hostess & waitress, but a different experience with the food. We ordered duck wings which were good, but not the best. My husband ordered shrimp and grits which...More

I have eaten at M&Ms many times. It is one block from the water, and in good weather the screened in porch is a great place to sit. For sports fans, there is a room with a tv, but thankfully, there is plenty of inside...More
