Tasty and reasonably priced

Went for dinner, service was speedy-actually too quick to eat our appetizer. Grilled shrimp and scallops were very good, and so was the fried mahi mahi and the tuna. Good value for the money.

Went here for lunch on vacation and it was just delicious! Everything was fresh made, including the ranch dressing. The fried pickles were delicious, hush puppies, onion rings and more. My popcorn shrimp was actual fresh shrimp, not the frozen kind. Highly recommend!

Serves up a great breakfast until noon on the weekends. Lots of omelette choices, breakfast sandwiches, along with the traditional fare.

Well we paid another visit to this restaurant and I have to say I am happy we returned! We had a large party of 10 which they accommodated in a very reasonable time. All of the food was very good, no problems with any of the orders! The staff was friendly and helpful! We will be back next year!

Solomon was very very helpful. He made room for our large party and was the one who cleared our dishes and offered us dessert. Our waitress was nice but extremely busy. After she dropped off food we didn't see her again until check time. We got there at 5:15 and it was already packed. Next time we'll try to be... More

Not a bad place after 12 hours of driving. We stopped for breakfast after driving all night. The place was clean but dated. The service was good and the food was adequate. The down side was there is a bar onsite which was serving people since opening. Drunks at breakfast was disappointing.

Greeted warmly with excellent service, this place is just the perfect spot for a meal - any meal. Though I enjoyed a breakfast there the friend I was with has been many times before for any of the three meals served and enjoyed all. Great prices and good portions.

This is our favorite place to eat out at while staying in Avon, NC! Their specials change daily but we stopped by on the steamed shrimp night! The Bay chips are great, the burgers fresh and mouthwatering! The staff is so friendly and always good with refills on drinks and to ask if we needed anything else! We also stopped... More
