Great food - high attention to safety

Had to pick something so this was it tonight. We dine early, so it's impossible to tell sometimes if something is popular. Good selection of draft beers as well as craft beers and mixed drinks. Staff was more than accommodating in customizing our entrees. Seafood was fresh, but scallops were... read more

We have been coming to this restaurant for years. I used to be one of the best. It's still good, but not the best. The crab cakes have too much breading. Salads were good. Salmon pesto pasta was great. The raw bar is gone. The place is pricey. You expect all of the meals to be good for what you... More

We had an early dinner with good food. Appetizers available at a discount ($2 off) before 6p. Dishes are made with fresh, local ingredients, and are moderately expensive. We tried the Three from the Sea: flounder,shrimp and scallops. Broiled or fried, very good fried. Mashed potato side a little dry but butter fixed it right up! Tangy side of tomato,... More

We came here after our first choice was closed. This should have been our first choice! From the appetizer of smoked fish to the crab cakes to the Spanish mackerel special, everything was delicious and high quality. Even my three year olds shrimp child's plate was superb.(he devoured it). This is not an inexpensive restaurant, but I believe that it... More

We stopped by for "Appy" hour. Assuming happy hour. We were told the happy hour DRINK was a MGD for $1.50! Then we were told no other drinks had happy hour prices. I don't know how the food is but I'm not spending $8.00 for a drink if I can't get a couple for a reasonable price during happy hour.... More

Absolutely the best restaurant on Hatteras Island. Everything was perfect, they must actually have a chef here. Our waitress was Chandler and she was very attentive, never had to ask for refills. Filet was delicious and cooked perfect. My hubby had blackened cobia and loved it. I recommend this place to everyone

Best meal we have had all week in Avon and the only place we tried where everyone in our party really enjoyed their food. They happily took care of our gluten free needs and had great service. Definitely going back.

We ate here twice during our visit to the Outer Banks. The menu is varied with some traditional and some newer and spicy - think Cajun. High quality meals, great presentation and good service. We enjoyed crab cakes, fish tacos , a broiled seafood platter and a seasonal special of puppy drum with wonderful pea-scallion couscous and an amazing strawberry... More
