Little cafe in the center of Duck,. Lunch here was very enjoyable - shrimp & grits were very good as was a salad with shrimp. Wait staff was friendly & helpful. No outdoor seating but there are some outside rockers for use while waiting.

Several emails went back and forth and the details were explained on several... More

After a 12 hour day of traveling and our first trip to Duck, we (4 adults & 2 10 year olds) were looking for a good meal to start our vacation. We arrived at 8 PM. The dining room was small, but we were seated immediately on this Saturday evening. There were no posted closing hours and we were told... More

My husband and I had dinner here our first night in NC. We loved it. He had ribs and I had the grouper. Both were amazing. The complimentary artichoke dip is superb. The staff was very friendly and everything well presented. Definitely a wonderful dining experience.

We tried Red Sky after hearing it was good from a couple of folks. It was okay but not as good as some other places in the duck area yet just as expensive. The food was good but not great. The restaurant was hot and had a few flies that we had to bat away. I think the air conditioner... More

Stopped here without doing any research. The menu was a little limited, but the hot crab dip was excellent, as was the shrimp and tilefish combo. My wife had the crab cakes and she was "meh" about them. I had a bite and I woukld have to agree. Very good service

We made reservations for a party of twelve and we were seated immediately. Our waiter, Dwayne, made suggestions, which were superb. Our table had the wood grilled trio, scallops, and shrimp and grits. All of which were excellent. We also loved the bread and artichoke dip. We will be back and would recommend it to anyone who is in the... More
