Jones’ Seafood House is a local restaurant in the heart of Oak Island that has been serving vacationers for more than 50 years. A popular spot for generations of families who return year after year, the restaurant has heaping plates of seafood that’s prepared simply, but appeals to classic coastal Carolina palates.
The restaurant is located along Oak Island Drive, just a short stroll from the beach, and is easy to access for visitors who are vacationing throughout Oak Island. Opened in 1964, the exterior and interior still retain their classic beach atmosphere, with lemon yellow and blue décor, wooden beams hanging overhead, and a mixed collection of vintage-feeling and seaworthy décor. The menu is just as classic, with a lot of the seafood staples that beach-goers expect at a southern NC restaurant. Diners can order combo platters of flounder, crab cakes, shrimp, scallops, and deviled crabs, or can try something lighter like a fresh salad or the bacon wrapped scallops. There are also charbroiled steaks and nightly specials, in addition to a senior and kids’ menu for family members of all ages. A classic spot for generations of visitors, Jones’ Seafood House is a solid representation of the traditional coastal seafood restaurant.
