Great place with an awesome hippies theme. After visiting the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse we decided to grab lunch before making the trip back north. Everything was clean and spacious. They had some seating in the front and then bar seating in the back of the restaurant. The service was prompt and the food came out quickly too! The portions were... More

I'm from the West Coast and as such, was skeptical about the reviews of the fish tacos being so great in comparison with the side of the US that invented the fish taco. The skepticism dissolved with the first bite. Not only are they using fresh, quality ingredients, you get to assemble your own taco, so you can skew the... More

Took an unplanned turn off the nav route and so glad I did. What a fun little place! Learned it was their first day open of the season. We just beat the rush and then it got really busy.

Great fish tacos. Wonderful crab cake sandwich. Friendly service. Every dish that came out of the kitchen looked good, and everyone eating there was smiling. Great credo to strive to serve fresh, healthful, delicious, food, and drink. Can't wait to return.
