Great Brunch

This is a great place for Sunday brunch. Excellent bacon and waffles. Biscuits and gravy with sausage is my favorite. No reservations accepted so get there early. Lunch and dinner options as well.

Food and atmosphere are excellent! Read a review from some dude saying the portions were small--TOTALLY disagree. It was hard just to finish what was put in front of me. But it was tasty, so I finished it anyway.

I ordered mine to take out. The person who took my call and order was so very patient and helpful at a time the restaurant was busy. The food was really good!

I hate to be one to leave a review based on assumptions and without trying the food but... We couldn't wait to eat here based on the reviews . When we arrived (me, husband, 2.5 year old and 5 year old), we were told it was a **TWO AND A HALF HOUR wait time since we didn't have reservations**(we got... More

This place has unique and wonderful food and drink. The staff is personal and the service is great. Try the sangria margarita! It is unique and amazing. All the food is really well prepared and presented. A little on the expensive side but worth it.

My wife had a seafood dish that she loved. I wasn't feeling much like seafood and had a steak which was perfectly prepared. Excellent wine choices, great food, friendly staff, and nice atmosphere make this a great place to dine. It's not cheap but was worth every penny.

While visiting Carolina Beach on business had the opportunity to eat at several different places and this was by far the best. The place is pretty small but it's bright and the wait staff is very friendly. I started with a local beer (unfortunately not on tap) and an appetizer of little necks clams cooked with mushrooms and pesto. The... More

Great service with eclectic menu. Food was great! The scallops were amazing. The chimichurri steak was equally good. This was my first visit even though I've lived in Carolina Beach for almost 2 years. I will be a frequent diner for sure.
