''This will mark the 11th year my family and I have vacationed in EI, NC. Flipperz is the most kid-friendly restaurant we've found (and with 3 under the age of 10, we've done our research.) The fun decor reminds us that we're vacationing at the beach (check out the restrooms!), the service is fast and fantastic, and the food is just fine. Price is so reasonable you don't notice you're dining out. Seating is limited so go early- it's worth it!...''
''Moved to the Crystal Coast about 3 years ago and for whatever reason never checked our Rucker John's. I did however hear that the food was great. So I thought it would be a great place to take my brother and his wife when they came to town. Our party of four all ordered different meals and nothing about it was special, more the same old prepackaged stuff you can get anywhere. I wouldn't waste your time on a ''special'' night out but might be a good place for a quick lunch....''

''Haven't been there since 06 but it's the best breakfast in town. Looking forward to a visit in 08...''
''My husband and I and our two small children ate here on 1/18/08. We waited 15 minutes for a table since the place is small but figured it must be good since it was full. WRONG. The waitress was nice and attentive but the seafood was awful. My husband's fried shrimp tasted like chlorine and my catfish was along the lines of something bagged in the frozen section of the supermarket. The kids enjoyed their burgers/chicken fingers and fries but we paid adult prices(no kid's meals) and got huge po...''
''The last 2 visits to Emerald grill I ordered Hot wings and they had ran out. I ordered a cheeseburger to go with fries and soda. The owner/cook took my money and proceeded to go back and prepare my food without even washing his hands. I walked out without getting my food....''
''When first entering you will find the decor pleasant and the environment friendly. We were placed in extremely close proximity to other diners (close enough to hear their conversations.) We were told about a grouper special with bur blanc sauce over asparagus that sounded amazing, so my wife and I ordered it. The two plates (bowl type things) arrived large enough to feed two per plate. The fish was overcooked and the sauce was separating. It was served on 2 spears of asparagus and nothing had ta...''
''My wife and I have enjoyed Kathryn's since it first opened. We vacation every year in Emerald Isle and have always had an outstanding dining experience -- from the appetizers, entrees, deserts, and of course the martinis! As a resort restaurant, it offers the same quality and dining experience as some of the finer restaurants in the Philadelphia area. It is a ''must do'' on our list while vacationing. Ken, the owner, always makes us feel welcome and though busy, takes time to say ''hi''. Th...''
''Thank you Ballyhoo's for opening in E.I. We go every chance we get when down at our summer home on E.I. This is by far the best restaurant to open in this location. The food and atmosphere is great. Keep up the good work and Everyone will keep returning....''
''This is a very cool, little coffee shop located in Emerald Isle. It's quaint but with plenty of room to hang out for a great cup of coffee & a muffin or bagel, either with friends or just you & a good book....''
''I vacationed on the Crystal Coast in the summer of 2007. I found this little place and almost passed it by. It looks kind of dumpy but WHO CARES? The food is absolutely amazing (try the szechuan lo mein with pork, it's to die for) and it is VERY cheap. I got a 'quart' of the lo mein (I actually got WAY more than a quart!) for less than $7. A must....''
