The food is always very good. Servers are always a pleasure. The restaurant, and the adjoining Tiki Bar, are located within the hotel, marina and restaurant property, so it is a really attractive waterfront location. One of my favorite places.

Outside Dinner seating with friends. Beautiful water and boats view. Had a wonderful dinner . The Grouper was fresh and delicious. They offered a good wine choice with this entree. We shared the warm yummy peach rum bread pudding. A must try. Thank you will be back.

The town has changed considerably since our last visit in 1996. Our dining experience here at TOUCAN was disappointing. The Lime Margarita Shrimp Cocktail $10 came in a bowl with a sauce of a few chunks of avocado. The 6 small shrimp again NOT DEVEINED were dried out and chewy. Over all flavor and presentation didn't justify being charging $10.... More

The toucan is right on the marina, with a porch offering views of sailboats (mostly). The seafood is very good, but there are other choices. Having eaten there many times, it is always good. Adult drinks are available at the bar. Often during warmer months there is often live music playing at the adjoining pool/motel. The atmosphere is welcoming and... More

The best fried flounder anywhere. My wife and I eat there often. They staff is great. Crab cakes is another favorite. My cousin loved them tuna on their lite list. There Tiki Bar during their time from St. Patrick's thru Christmas is a great meeting place.

We ended our evening in Oriental here and were not disappointed. Had the best shrimp ever. If you've never eaten fresh, local shrimp, you need to! Good beer selection and a relatively new waitress that was excellent.

Had a good meal at Toucan and wait staff were very attentive however the loud music from the tiki bar was annoying

It was hard to see the entrance because it faces the back of a waterfront hotel. The food was very good. The crab cake sandwich was very good but the lettuce which came on the platter looked a bit overheated. The grilled mahi-mahi Vietnamese style sandwich was delicious. We had a young boy waiting our table that seemed to be... More
