Service here is great. Genuine waitstaff and bartenders. However it saddens me that their food is so poor. Taste premade and just warmed up. Which I get in the summer. Its crazy up this way. Makes for quicker service. But all in all very bland. Come for some beers and good serivce. Oh and the view's not to shabby either.

I recommend the fish tacos. Great stop to sit outside for a casual meal. We arrived early for our vacation and were unable to check in. So after walking and shopping we stopped here for a casual and inexpensive meal.

Went here for dinner and drinks on a thursday night, which was a big mistake. The wait was about an hour and one member of our party got fed up and left. He had the right idea. Drinks were fine, queso was good, and I liked that a bottle of wine was $15. After waiting an hour we were seated... More

This is the 2nd year that my wife and our sister and brother in law have biked here or stopped while walking. The staff is UBER friendly, the fish tacos are king, the guac dip is AWESOME, and the blonde beer is just really really good! You should go right now. :D

Arrived on a busy summer night with a large group … served right away ... took food to go and eat at tables on the adjoining boardwalk. Everyone in our party was pleased and would return again … great food and frozen drinks

This is one of my family's favorite handouts in Duck. The food is great, not to expensive and you can have a beer on the boardwalk. If you are going be sure to try the fish taco's.
