Yummy for a reasonable price :)

Service was good, food was good, it was reasonably priced. Definitely want to go back and try their home made ravioli. Didn't know they made their own till after we ordered our food.

Each year our family rents a house in the Outer Banks. Last year we were in Salvo, this year Avon. While we normally make breakfast, we decided to go out for breakfast. What a treat, coffee terrific, food excellent and service great. It's rustic and has a relaxed down home feeling. Don't feel like breakfast...go to Oceanas!

Went both for breakfast and dinner through out our week stay. Breakfast was awesome. I can eat there grits and sausage patties all day. For dinner, everyone loved there dish. The entrees were a tad tiny for the price. But was expected while on vaca. Definitely recommended.

Went for dinner with friends and family while on vacation. We had a party of 6, which was apparently larger than optimal. We had to wait about 20-25 minutes for a table but the place is really small with only about 10 tables in the dining room and nothing but bar stools in the bar area. We waited outside on... More

Our server was Amanda and she was very professional and friendly. I had the Clam Chowder and my guest had the Crab Corn soup. Both were very good, served at the right temperature and even came with oyster crackers. It was Taco Tuesday and the beef taco's were acceptable. All in all a good lunch experience. We would come back... More

The fish tacos are fantastic! This is a great spot to eat either at the bar or in the dining room. Decent menu, fresh food and friendly atmosphere! This is one of our regular places in Avon!

Went for dinner. Ordered a beer and a ice tea. We could not get a refill even when the waitress was at the table next to us. I ordered the steak special, and the wife ordered the sampler appetizer, and also a tuna appetizer for dinner. I ordered a glass of wine with dinner. The wine cam at the end... More
