Not much was open in December so we ate here for the advertised breakfast. Food was just so so and tasted a little greasy for the eggs. Breakfast burrito would have tasted better with crumbled sausage rather than a cut up link . Salsa didn't come with it but staff was nice enough to oblige request. Ok considering not much... More

This is a great little bar with a small dining room. We got the crab dip which was fantastic. We are from Maryland so we know when someone's trying to pass off over breading for crab, and this didn't happen here. It was a delicious well seasoned crab dip with the best homemade pita chips you have ever had. The... More

We went in on a Sunday at lunch. Our food came out cold the first go around, so we sent it back. I changed from a crab cake sandwich to a hamburger because the crab tasted scorched and was not good at all (more filler than crab). The second go around was better, but not great. I think our server... More

My husband and I ate outside on the deck for dinner one evening. The food was very good, and reasonably priced. however there were spiders EVERYWHERE. I get why they didn't get rid of them all, because there was a bit of a bug problem, but they placed the tables and chairs thisclose to the massive spiders and their webs.

This would be a place I like more than my wife but even she was surprised by our last visit. We both had the special "grilled Wahoo" which was very good. I always go for their Conch Chowder, it's the only place I know of in North Carolina who served this chowder. Don't find it until you get down in... More

We stopped in for lunch after a very long drive to the Outer Banks from Pittsburgh, PA. We were hungry! The wait for our food seemed long. There were not very many people there, as it was off season. After receiving our food, I realized that I forgot to order a side of ranch dressing for my fries. I asked... More

Not a place to come with kids - bar is right in the middle of the dining room with people swearing and yelling. Food was good but overpriced.

We stopped at Fishbones for lunch on our way to Corolla. We were traveling with a dog and learned that you can order carry out food from Fishbones and then eat it with your pet outside on a nearby picnic table. This was great as we have yet to discover many pet friendly restaurants. Unfortunately, ordering carry out was very... More

My husband and I stopped in for lunch and I was pleasantly surprised. At first glance I was a little nervous because there were only a few people there. But we decided to stay and give it a shot. The food was excellent, although we had to wait a bit to actually get it. I would recommend for the food... More

The waiter was ok. food was ok. nothing special. the best part was the view of the sound. I don't think I will be back. It appears the place rather be a bar.
