Ever been to a hole in the wall where it served just your average food? This is another one of those. The workers were just standing around doing nothing, my drink was dry 3 times each time 5-10 mins without a refill. The only person working was the bartender which I think was the owner, but no one seemed to... More

As we approached the restaurant we had second guesses as it is attached to a brew thru and gas station in front of it, but once inside we knew this was going to be a good place. Took reservations for our large party (13) with no problems, however i recommend calling early because it is a small place that fills... More

During vacation we wanted a "grownups" dinner out, but didn't want to spend $40 per entree. Made 5pm reservation for our group of 8 and was seated immediately. Casual place; bar blender sometimes drowned out conversation. Bread hot out of the oven was yummy! I had the jumbo-shrimp stuffed with crab which was excellent - real mashed potatoes - and... More

it's typical tourist fare, sorta big box feel and quality even though it's not a big box. Young folks looking for food and party (ala Applebee's), this is a slightly better stop. Bright side the food is more reasonably priced. Don't expect creativity just decent taste decent priced food definitely worth the money.

We had breakfast here twice, once with kids, and found it just fine, we are diner types and there was nothing else open early in a reasonable drive. Excellent service, good price, well cooked breakfast

Neat little place in Timbuck II in Corolla NC. Didn't have to wait and had very good food. Not high on atmosphere but extremely friendly service. Had salmon, oysters, mahi mahi, crabcakes and scallops. Standard mashed potatoes and vegetables came with each meal. Nothing fancy but well worth the stop. Our waiter recommended broiled vs fried crabcakes and took his... More

Decided to try Route 12 Steak and Seafood due to its proximity to our house in Corolla. We made a 530 PM reservation and were seated early. Our waiter was awesome and very attentive to our needs. However, I just wish the food would have been as good as the service. We had for appetizers the bacon wrapped shrimp (were... More

Called ahead twice to check about their confidence in serving ppl with allergies. My son has a peanut and tree nut allergy. My 1st call I was told they only have 1 item with peanuts and they take precautions to prevent cross contamination. 2nd called said the same but also mentioned they have pecans in a dish. Again said they... More
