Very nice

We stopped in for a late lunch on our recent trip and the place was packed. Food, service and portions were great. We shared the crab grenades and then had the fish tacos.

Didn't take reservations and had about hour wait. Vibrating device was good for area around restaurant so wasn't tied to being close. Worth wait, seafood fresh and delicious. My son said his tuna was best he ever had. Very interesting appetizers. Highly recommended.

Wasn't happy with the prices or the food, was going from the reviews on here. Chewy over done calamari, pitiful portions for the seafood platter, good clam chowder though. Five of us, and two only got soup, our bill was well over $100, not going back.

Alright I admit it. I am a Jersey shore guy. Not the fist pumping, overly tan and overly muscled guy, just the one that loves sitting out on the beach, or the deck overlooking the beach with a drink, listening to the waves roll in between the screams and laughter eminating from the boardwalk. But while I love the Jersey... More

Excellent meal. Wife and I both had the crab cakes which were generous portions and done well. The place has a nice feeling to it like a bar that just happens to serve a good meal.

We stopped in after a morning of shopping and had a fantastic lunch. Good seafood as well as non seafood dishes. Bartenders are great (thanks Kenny!). Waitstaff fun. Will come her again for sure!

lunch was good. ordered game fish tacos for $13 was a decent value compared to their dinners which are very expensive. servers try to sell more food and bigger portions than we needed, maybe to drive up the bill? who knows? the Margarita was $12 which was high for the portion, plus I asked for it straight up and the...

Smallish restaurant and no reservations but usually any wait is short. Nice menu, something for everyone. The crab grenades on Asian slaw are for sure try, other fresh fish dishes with some meat alternatives. Often have fresh oysters from the neighboring states. Medium high price but worth it and inline with other good restaurants in area. Attentive and friendly service.... More

We stopped here on a super hot day to feed a tired family some lunch. Am I ever glad we did. We had some of the best shrimp and fish of our OBX trip here. The panko shrimp was excellent! And my son ordered the yellowfin tuna, and declared it to be the best fish he's ever had! It is... More
