Good Rueben

The staff is gracious and welcoming. The beer selection is good. The menu, however , is limited. We shared a rueben and fries which were good, but certainly not exceptional.

Ok so 4 middle aged women walk into First Light : at first sight we seem reputable, well dressed, properly groomed. Respectable to the unsuspecting eye. What most people don't know is that we spent the last few days behaving like teenaged boys. And so we make our entrance , not disastrously hung over, possibly a little disheveled, and craving...

Stopped in for lunch not knowing what to expect and were pleasantly surprised. We had burgers and they were enormous and perfectly cooked. The homemade chips were very good although most of mine were overcooked but I didn't complain because I wouldn't have had room to finish them anyway! Can't wait to go back next year and try breakfast or... More

Yes, that's the name of one of their breakfast meals. And you don't need to be hungover to enjoy it. Well-seasoned, chunky home fries with melted American cheese and topped with two over easy eggs. Dee-lish!

Outstanding discovery for breakfast. Has a varied and creative menu. We had the crab cakes and eggs for our breakfast which was like eggs benedict with a crab cake instead of ham. The crab cake was all crab with no fillers and a Cajun spice. They have outside seating as well as inside tables and seats at the bar. If... More

We've never had anything but breakfast when we visit Corolla every year & then we always get the Scattered Smothered & Covered. It consist of scrambled eggs, bacon, sauteed onions, fried potatoes & cheese all mixed together & absolutely delicious. It's a good size portion so bring your appetite.We'll definitely be back next year. :-)

We came for a late lunch on a Friday. The place was empty. Our server was a young, unkempt long haired boy with a bad attitude. He spent a lot of time telling us what he could not do for us. He brought too many drinks, apologized, but didn't fix the bill. Someone ordered chips but they were never brought.... More

The food is very good. They are a little expensive. Coffee costing $3.00. You do get a lot of food, biscuits are amazing!! I do wish the service was faster and there was more seating. Will definitely be back when staying in Corolla.

The best burgers in the Outer Banks and a wide selection of craft beers. Always go here for at least a couple lunches and a few breakfasts when we come for our annual Labor Day week Outer Banks vacation. Great staff and vibe.
