Checkout Ocean Isle Pier Watch Video

Southern Living named Ocean Isle Beach the South’s Best Tiny Town in 2018. Locals agree Ocean Isle Beach is Paradise Found. At the center of the 7-mile island, coming over the bridge Causeway Drive ends at the Ocean Isle Beach Pier.

This 968’ wooden pier has stood as a landmark of the island since it was built in 1957 by Odell and Virginia Williamson.

OIB Pier management values family tradition, honors its history and works hard to maintain the longstanding sentimental traditions of the pier yet carefully updates the complex for the modern-day tourist.

The fun begins at the pier house entrance with a front door historic photograph of the pier house 60 years ago.

Come on in to see your OIB Pier today, and let us help you continue to make lots of summer fun in the sun memories!


The Pier Grill

The Pier Grill serves as a local and tourist favorite spot for BREAKFAST with Tasty Eggs, Grits, Omelets, Sausage, Biscuits, Fluffy Pancakes, and more!

The LUNCH AND DINNER menu offers items such as Clubs, Cheeseburgers, Patty Melt, Philly Cheese Steak, Cheese/Chicken Quesadilla, Chicken Fingers, Crispy Fries, Onion Rings, and more. We have extended Pier Grill hours to feed hungry folks later into the evening even as late as 9 pm. You can call 579-3095 for hours. Can now enjoy dining outside in the Pier Backyard.


The arcade features a large updated modern arcade room that is kept clean and with cold air conditioning.

Play music, or make music, choose from a great selection of video games, games of skill, and games of chance.

All games use quarters not tokens, and if you forgot your quarters there are two convenient change machines. ATM machine is available near the pier desk.

Gift Shop & Ice Cream

The fishing pier has always had a small store where you can buy packaged ice cream, candy, chips, ice, drinks, water, some beach supplies, pier t-shirts and hats, fishing bait, tackle, and rods, but

New for 2019 we introduce a new gift shop space with a variety of enjoyable items, souvenirs, and treasures to take home. New fun items arriving often.


Ice Cream Parlor

Nestled in the air-conditioned OIB Pier Arcade.  Did someone say “Ice Cream?!” The most popular food product on vacation!!  Soft Serve Ice Cream in Chocolate, Vanilla, and Swirl still spins its way into 1st place as most desired ice cream.

But, the highly desired brand of BLUE BELL hand-dipped ice cream has joined the family of ice cream options for our customer’s ice cream hankerings.

Staff serving up cones, cups, sundaes, milkshakes, cookie and candy blends, and more! Tables and chairs available to eat and rest from the hot sun.

The very popular Sunset Slush is back again serving a large variety of flavored Italian ice. You’ll also find Sunset Slush carts rolling along the beach serving beachgoers.
