best day ever
The venue, Marnie, food.... everything was amazing! We had our rehearsal dinner with the Shrimp n Grits, Crab Dip, tacos.... everyone absolutely loved the food and the tiki bar. For the wedding.... it was the perfect day & everyone at the isles were so great in helping us get set up and where we needed to be. We did a chef station pasta bar and oh my word..... the best Alfredo on the planet! It was out of this world and every single person who attended cannot stop talking about it! If only we could go back and have that day again.... it was absolutely perfect.Sent on 10/15/2019

Perfect place for a Wedding
The Isles is the perfect place for a wedding. Marnie and her staff made everything seamless and beautiful for our special day. We could not be happier with the service and food. Our guests said it was one of the best weddings they’d been to in a while.Sent on 06/11/2019

Amazing venue and food!
The Isles not only hosted our rehearsal dinner, but catered our small wedding of 40 in Ocean Isle Beach. The venue was gorgeous, the food was incredible, and Marnie made everything so easy!Sent on 10/16/2018
She decorated the rehearsal space perfectly with the decorations I gave her and checked in with us regularly throughout the evening. For the catering of the wedding reception, she was onsite and treated all of our guests with the upmost respect.
I highly recommend The Isles for your rehearsal dinner and/or wedding, it's the best!

Marnie was an absolute ROCK STAR!! She went above & beyond to ensure my daughter's wedding went off without a hitch!! The food was superb, the service staff was timely, professional and clean. This venue is a MUST for anyone wanting a beach, pool or indoor wedding because this venue has it all.Sent on 09/27/2018

Thanks to Marnie and the staff at The Isles Restaurant and Beach Club I had a memorable wedding reception with family and friends. Marnie made excellent vendor recommendations and responded quickly to all my questions and concerns. Marnie and her staff handled all my beach theme decorations and put together an awesome look that impressed all my guests. The location of the Isles Restaurant and Beach Club was perfect for my beach theme wedding with it's breath taking views of the ocean. My guest also enjoyed the menu we selected for the reception. The Tiki bar was a hot spot for my guests and the signature drinks that their bar staff created for us was a hit with everyone. It was a perfect and memorable wedding day at the Isles Restaurant and Beach Club.Sent on 02/20/2019

My husband and I had the pleasure of having our wedding reception at the Isles. The planning process was a pleasure. Marnie and the staff were available to us whenever we requested a meeting and double, triple, quadruple checked everything for us. When the weekend arrived, the staff was very welcoming to all of our vendors that were in and out during the days leading up to the wedding. The wedding guests raved about the food (especially the fried chicken skewers!) and the staff was so professional and accommodating. Overall, we were beyond satisfied with our experience at the Isles and would recommend this beautiful venue to any other engaged couple whose aim is for a perfect wedding reception.Sent on 07/06/2018

My husband and I are very pleased with the staff at The Isles restaurant. Everyone was extremely helpful the day of our wedding and worked hard to get everything set up how we wanted it. The food at the restaurant was exquisite, almost all of our guests told us how impressed they were with the food.Sent on 09/25/2017

A beautiful private banquet room that you can decorate yourself or have your wedding planner design, a semi-private room to accommodate your cocktail hour, a beautifully decorated buffet, combined with so many menu choices / options and price points that your head will be spinning!Sent on 05/10/2017
We hosted our son and daughter-in-law's wedding at The Isles, including the ceremony and reception. Jamie and Marnie could not be more helpful or accommodating. Everything looked beautiful, the food and drinks were outstanding and believe me, not a morsel was left over! If you are considering a Brunswick County beach location, look no further than The Isles!

We booked the Barefoot Package through the Islander Inn, which landed us at The Isles for our post-wedding dinner! We used the semi-private dining area and it was absolutely perfect for the low key event we were looking for. The plated dinners were great, and they even allowed us to have our "first dance" on the deck right outside the room (unable to stream music in the semi-private area). I experienced a few unsettling hiccups early in the planning stages (we booked 1 year in advance) with a previous coordinator, but when I met Jamie, I knew that it would be smooth sailing from there. Jamie was incredible to work with, and really went the extra mile for our event. I'm SO grateful for her take-charge attitude and she really made me feel at ease on my wedding day. Thank you again!Sent on 05/30/2017

We had our ceremony and reception at the Isles in November 2016! Jamie, the coordinator, was great throughout the entire process and was very responsive and flexible with all of our needs! The location is the BEST...ceremony right on the beach, and the cutest banquet hall only a few steps away! This all made it perfect for pictures and easy for guests, since everything was in one place! The food was amazing too! We had the down home BBQ buffet package, and everyone LOVED the food! We would highly recommend the Isles for any event or wedding!Sent on 12/01/2016

The Isles Restaurant is beautiful and everything we wanted for our wedding! Marissa Wilson was amazing and worked with us through everything, from start to finish. She coordinated the evening perfectly! We had an issue with high tide because of the tropical storm that hit the weekend before, but Marissa did everything she could to make sure that we were happy. We ended up getting married on the pool deck, which turned out just as pretty! The food was excellent and the wait staff was friendly and accommodating to all of our guests. I highly recommend this venue if you are looking to have a beach wedding.Sent on 06/22/2015

The Isles Restaurant was the perfect venue for our wedding ceremony and reception! The beach area is beautiful for the ceremony and the banquet room is a beautiful wood that has a very classy feel and would have been just fine for an inside ceremony had the weather not cooperated.Sent on 04/22/2014
We had our rehearsal lunch at the restaurant and had a brunch reception for our wedding. The food is fantastic and the service was great! Speaking of service, Marnie Williamson was awesome to work with from menu selections to saving the day when my cake topper layer took a header onto the ground - still wrapped, thank goodness. She was so calm and easy going and had solutions for everything. She also had fabulous vendor recommendations, which we followed to a T and we were thrilled with all of them! It was very enjoyable and easy working with The Isles Restaurant and Marnie.

The manager at The Isles Restaurant is the most amazing woman ever! We met with her the week of the wedding to go over the details and she suddested making a last minute switch to the menu to accomodate my son. Our wedding was planned to be on the beach. The day of the wedding the weather was bad so we called the restaurant frantic asking if we could have our wedding in the space where we were having our reception. The manager said sure and that if the weather cleared up we could even have it outside on the pool deck. The rain stopped long enough for us to have a beautiful ceremony outide on the pool deck with beach as our backdrop. After the ceremony we went inside to enjoy the delicious food. We loved it so much we went back the very next day for Easter brunch! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this restaurant, especially Marnie, the manager.Sent on 04/27/2014

The location is beautiful and exactly what we were looking for in a venue. Everything went smoothly and exceeded my expectations. Cheryl Wilson was amazing! She took care of all of the details and made sure that nothing slipped through the cracks. The semi-private room was perfect for our small wedding group and looked great! I highly recommend The Isles Restaurant for your wedding venue!Sent on 06/21/2012

Everyone is still talking about how delicious the food at the restaurant was!!! We live 3 hours north of OIB but Cheryl makes you feel right at home!! When we went down to OIB and met with Cheryl and see the restaurant,we were greeted with big hugs, just as if we were family! She took the time to sit down with us and review our options, in a relaxed manner. I felt so comfortable talking with her about our ideas for the reception and ceremony! I thought it would be difficult to plan a wedding 3 hours away, but Cheryl reassured me she would take what I needed for my reception and make it work! Everything was perfect!!!Sent on 06/24/2012
The two gentlemen who were working our wedding were SO much fun, they danced with us and kept the drinks flowing!! ;o)
I can't say enough wonderful things about this place, I look forward to going back on our anniversary!!

Even during the off season, the vendor isn't responsive. She makes me feel excited and hopeful for our Halloween wedding.Sent on 03/21/2019

Great wedding venue!
We chose this wedding venue location due to the fact that it is right on the beach and has a lovely event room. Marnie, the event coordinator, was very kind in letting us use some items that she already had for decor and it turned out beautifully! She was generally good at responding to communications, and even provided me with her cell number if I needed to shoot her any reminder texts. There were a few last minute changes that had to be made to the location of the wedding on the beach (moved from left side to right side) and she was great at warning me about that. The food was amazing as well and the guests loved it as well as the open bar package. The venue can fit 150 people at max, but we had 120 which allowed us to seat everyone. We moved two tables out of the way for dancing after dinner and that worked out well. We had our flowers and cake delivered directly to the venue. Marnie waived our cake cutting fee as a graduation present (I recently graduated pharmacy school) for me, which was very thoughtful! The only thing that went slightly wrong before the ceremony was that Marnie forgot to grab my bouquet and the groomsmen/bridesmaids flower accessories until I luckily remembered and reminded her right before we were walking out to the ceremony, so all turned out well! It was a beautiful wedding and venue, we had some delicious food provided, and Marnie was great to work with! I definitely recommend getting married here and having your reception at the Isles!Sent on 06/23/2019

The Isles Restaurant was a beautiful venue for our beach wedding. The manager Marnie Williamson was wonderful to work with and quickly responded to my requests to meet with her. The Isles accommodated every request, including letting us stay a bit later than our four hours in the banquet room when it was difficult for us to get everyone out by 9. The food was great, and everyone particularly complimented the crab cakes. I highly recommend The Isles Restaurant for any beach wedding. We were lucky to have beautiful weather, and the panoramic view of the ocean during our reception was amazing.Sent on 11/04/2014
