Pretty well hidden gem. The restaurant is located at the junction of the Shallotte River and the ICW with wonderful, unobstructed views that go on forever. The dining areas are upstairs so you're truly overlooking the water. They conveniently have elevator service so it's easy access for anyone. I was there for lunch so the crowd was pretty thin but...

While walking on Holden Beach, we met two young ladies who told us about the Inlet View Bar and Grill, located just a few miles out of Shallotte, NC. The restaurant is located at the intersection of the Shallotte River and the Intercostal Waterway, with the western end of Holden Beach and the ocean in view. The food and service... More

Sports bar atmosphere. Can eat on the porches away from crowds and enjoy the river view. Depending on night or afternoon you go service is good. Food is very good.

I was very disappointed in the service I received from my waitress Mindy on Sunday May 21, 2017. I have eaten here many times and I have had the best service ever, the food and staff have always been amazing. I was very surprised and disappointed at the same time with our service on Sunday. When placing our food order... More

We went for lunch Saturday and the food was perfect! Our server Kristen was very attentive and friendly! She made a few menu suggestions and recommended the fried squash! Most certainly worth the try if you like squash!! We hope to visit again soon and will look for Kristen!

Eight of us headed to IV for dinner on Sunday. They said they didn't take reservations but it would not be a problem and it wasn't. We were seated immediately. They have three things going for them: great service, great food and great views of the water. Portions were large and well prepared. Prices were reasonable. I had two big... More

My family noticed the signs for Inlet View and decided to check it out. As the name implies, they have a great view of the inlet including a patio/grass area to wait or hang out. We arrived at 6:00 on a Saturday night (off-season) and were delighted to have the hostess tell us there was no wait! With such a... More

I went here for a business lunch. We ate outside and the view was outstanding. I ordered an appetizer and it was good. My business had a seafood plate, consisting of fried oysters and shrimp. Food was okay. I would recommend this restaurant to others.

Found this place a few years ago and now every time we are in Ocean Isle, Supply or beaches nearby, we have to stop for lunch or dinner. We've had the salads, burgers, and of course shrimp, fish and crab legs. Never have had a bad meal. Wait staff has always been friendly and attentative. It's not near anything else,... More

In 1978, C.W Hughes, Jr., who owned a paving company, and his wife Allison, a retired nurse, bought a small grill, motel and marina previously called Gregory's. It was located at the mouth of the Shallotte River and the Intracoastal Waterway. The grill had 13 stools around a bar and a small tackle shop. It was named Hughes Marina and home of the Poor Boy Shark Tournament for 14 years. It was a popular restaurant with the locals. It became home for Jr., Allison and their 11-year-old daughter, Samantha. For many of those years they poured their hearts and souls into the restaurant and marina. Their other daughter Amy and her husband John, both teachers, moved from Georgia to help. It continued to get bigger and attract more customers. In 1992, the girls took over the business, which continued to grow until they closed in 2004. On July 30, 2009, Sam and Timmy, her fiancé, opened the doors of Inlet View, a restaurant with a new look and an elevator that can take you to breathtaking views both from the restaurant on the first floor and a panoramic view from the bar on the second floor, which is surrounded by decks. Their dream became real with the help of friends and family.
