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.

We ended our evening in Oriental here and were not disappointed. Had the best shrimp ever. If you've never eaten fresh, local shrimp, you need to! Good beer selection and a relatively new waitress that was excellent.

My husband and I stayed at the Inn. We ate the grill for dinner. Excellent choice. Wonderful staff. Friendly environment. Great views if you eat outside.

It was hard to see the entrance because it faces the back of a waterfront hotel. The food was very good. The crab cake sandwich was very good but the lettuce which came on the platter looked a bit overheated. The grilled mahi-mahi Vietnamese style sandwich was delicious. We had a young boy waiting our table that seemed to be... More

Can't get any better than this for atmosphere! Yachts docking, live music, good food and good service. We have visited Oriental several times and always end up here eating or just enjoying the atmosphere.

A little hard to find but worth it!!!! Margaritas were great, as were the Crab Cakes, Mussels, New England Clam Chowder, homemade bread and butter. I had an amazing shrimp and scallop dish and they were kind enough to substitute spinach for the pasta it was supposed to be served on:) My husband had fried flounder... we live on a... More

After a boat ride up the waterway, the four of us were starved. We were so excited to find this place by the water but it was just not good. The ribs appetizer was inedible. We didn't eat a quarter of it. Some menu items weren't available and we heard another waiter tell the table behind us they were out... More
