Get the Shrimp and Grits!!

I have to agree with some of the other reviewers that this place isn't quite as high class as they're trying to make themselves out to be. The view is stunning for sure. And the food is certainly tasty. But it's a bit overpriced. Having said that, the shrimp and grits were worth every single... read more

This was an amazing experience! My wife and I didn't want to leave. The view was great and the food/services was fabulous. We ate and enjoyed the upstairs bar area. Definitely recommend this as a must for anyone visiting the area even if you just stop in and take in the view.

View is beautiful, restaurant is clean but food is completely tasteless. Service is slow and we will not go back. Prices too high for food served.......food is of good fresh quality, but plated food not served in a pleasing arrangement and food had no flavor whatsoever.

The food was still pretty good, but the waitstaff is training. Not sure how you can run out of green beans in the summer in NC. Someone needs to teach the cook how to remove the woody ends of asparagus. The salmon, shrimp and grits & chicken alfredo were good, but pricey for the experience you get now.

We were here for a family dinner and were disappointed. Our food took forever to get to us, and many were disappointed with the meals. I had the Shrimp and Grits and the shrimp were small and appeared to be frozen (may not have been, but were very average at best). The grits and sauce were very good, but with... More

We had such a great dinner. We ordered the shrimp & grits, trout and the carrot cake. Everything was absolutely amazing! Our server was great. He had an amazing attitude and was very attentive. I would certainly recommend this place to anyone! It also had an amazing view on the deck. We will definitely be back.

By far.....the worst restaurant experience of my life. The service was so bad I almost wondered if I was on a "hidden camera" show. The experience was surreal. Our waiter kept telling us that "warm bread" was "on it's way".....and we watched over and over as he delivered it to the table next to us. After their third basket of... More

Having read previous reviews, we were very disappointed. Service was very attentive, however, the dinner left much to be desired. The escargot puff pastry appetizer would have been better if some of the butter had hit the escargot instead of sitting at the bottom of the pastry. Salads arrived with just the slightest hint of a dressing. We ordered the... More

This place isn't much to look at from the parking lot, but inside it's comfortable and pleasant, nothing fancy. Fortunately there are lots of large windows on one side because the view is fabulous! The menu was limited, but everything we ordered was excellent, except for the mac and cheese which was good. Our server, Richard, was fantastic!

Had dinner here with 4 other ladies on a recent Saturday night. The restaurant was under staffed for as many customers as there were but our server worked hard to take care of us remaining friendly and warm the whole time. Hats off to the raspberry martini he made me! Our entrees were very good as well as the chocolate... More
