My husband and I visited here for our last night on our vacation. We have eaten at this restaurant twice before. The first time it was pretty good. The second time it was just ehhh, and this time it was just horrible. I write a lot of reviews and don't normally but this low of a rating. However, this was... More

We chose this place for our last night on the OB. This place was chosen by a waitress at another restaurant. Quite frankly I was tired of eating out for dinner and lunches were there was NO waitstaff. At the price on the OB it would seem that least you could get was a table cloth and a friendly wait...

We had dinner here for our daughter's birthday. The food was wonderful. I had the special- soft shelled crabs. My husband has their shrimp and grits. My sons had the steak and fish tacos which were both very good. would recommend this restaurant.

Great food! Hands down probably one of the best steaks I'd ever had! I saw this place on a video entitled "Life in the Carolinas" and I was interested. I am very glad I went there!

Went here with a big family group. Service was friendly and on top of things. Food was exceptionally bland and overpriced. The seafood platter "Three From the Sea" had a bland fish, microscopic scallops, and dried shrimp. The fries were salt bombs. The tuna tartar app was very good, however. Unfortunately not many options here in OBX.

I've been looking for a good filet on Hatteras Island and found it at Ketch 55 ! It was so tender and juicy ! The taste was amazing! I will definitely go there when I'm ready for a seafood break.

This place is HORRIBLE!! Awful food, service, & poor management. We waited an hour to get in, not a big deal. Took over an HOUR to get our food & it was cold/ lukewarm. We complained about the wait for food & the fact that no one @ our table had anything to drink. We were told to "sit down"... More

My family and I went there and we had an hour wait, before we could get a table. Then we ordered our drinks and browsed the menu, which has fewer choices then normal, and is very expensive. We then, after we ordered waited over an hour for our food, and we always had empty drinks. When we got it, the... More
