This place is the best restaurant I've been to in the outer banks. As soon as we walked in we were greeted and told to sit wherever we would like. We chose a corner seat and ordered the sesame tuna rare. It came out pretty quickly and was quite delicious. I ordered something easy and light since it was lunch... More

We were touring the lighthouses along the OBX and stopped here on a whim. Husband is a pescatarian and I am vegetarian. We were pleasantly surprised at the options including create your own quesadilla, vegetarian grillers, flatbreads and more. Husband and cousin had the appetizer-portion fish tacos and both said they were the BEST they had ever had. Fried pickles... More

Seafood nachos were awesome. Our waitress didn't seem to want to be there. Maybe she was having an off night. Priced decent for tourist season.

We stopped on Mother's Day and found a number of specials for the day. How about free lemon marsipone for all of the mothers, $6 Pinot noir from Oregon and a spectacular fried shrimp and potato wedge basket for $11. I can't recall when I've has better fried shrimp. First of all, it was wild caught NC shrimp. All pieced... More

I went here for the first time and loved it. The fish tacos were great and the steamed mussels were wonderful. It is a rather small place, so be prepared to wait for a table. You'll be glad you did
