    Great experience

    Great food. This was our first time we brought our small one year old dog on vacation and out to eat with us. When the dog would bark randomly we thought it would be best to get our food to go. The waitress put us at ease and said they were pet friendly and dogs barking some is no problem. We stayed had great food and service. Staff brought water and treats for our dog. Great place and truly pet friendly.

    Not as dog friendly as it seems to be. Food and service mediocre

    Great Spot!!

    The patio is well shaded and there are plenty of water bowls. The owner brought us a little bag of treats from a local pet shop up the road. Food was great and everyone was so friendly.

    Went for dinner and was seated outside which we expected; however they have "rules". We went to put our Shih Tzu on the bench beside us when seated and were told immediately that she would have to stay on the concrete patio floor. Then we were given a written list of "rules" for dining with your dog. Our dog is very well mannered and doesn't bark or try to run around. They did have community dog bowls with water but didn't seem really dog friendly. In fact the staff altogether wasn't very friendly either. Food was mediocre. My son's hamburger was really pink inside. Too many other dog friendly establishments in the area so will not be returning.

    great staff!

    We've been here several times on vacation. The food has been delectable and the staff awesome. Had a run-in with some guests that complained of being 'absolutely terrified of dogs' and making a huge scene with us trying to be seated near them (at the dog friendly outside tables). The owner and his staff took great care of us. Got our food order in quickly and sat us as soon as they had space at another table. Very apologetic about the grumpy customers. There's water bowls and doggie treats! Come armed with your best tail wags and tricks!

    Mixed reviews

    We visited Shagger Jacks twice in the week we were staying on Oak Island. The first time was great, the servers and staff were very accommodating for us and our dog. The food was great. We liked it so much the first time that we went back a few days later. The second time there were several large parties that came before and after us (we were 2 + our dog). We arrived around 6:30, waited at least 2 hours to be seated and then another hour to get our food. It was almost 10pm by the time we got served and we were so tired and frustrated that we didn't want to stay. While I know that the restaurant needs to accommodate big parties, please don't forget about the small ones. We were very disappointed.

    Great Service and Food

    We always visit when on the island. The service is fantastic, the food is great. They always treat our 2 dogs well. If you are visiting you have to make a trip to Shagger Jacks and bring the dog(s).

    quick service and dog friendly

    It was a hot, busy day, they accommodated us at the end of a table where they would have space, servers were welcoming, fresh water was brought immediately, and ice chips which helped beat the heat! Thank you!

    Our dogs LOVE this place

    Can't say enough about how dog friendly Shagger's is. Been there with multiple dogs when it was super busy & was impressed with atmosphere & service. They treat our fur kids like family. This is a must visit... Food & drinks are also very good!

    Treats and great service

    So happy they permit dogs on the deck! Food and drinks were good. Staff was so thoughtful and asked permission before offering our puppy a treat. Everyone was sweet and made you feel welcome.
