This was closed after Hurricane Irene and there is always talk of something going on but no activity. Closed!

This restaurant closed over 2 years ago, the location it was in will be opening soon as a burger & breakfast place. This is the only ocean front eatery in Emerald Isle

I eat here all of the time when vacationing on the island. The food is awesome, especially the seafood. This place is a must try if you are nearby. Be sure to pick up a cool looking t-shirt on your way out.

We visited this restaurant based on a recommendation. Well, everyone's entitled to their opinion. The restaurant was fairly small and dark inside. We waited a long time to get our food delivered. The food was OK but not worth the expensive price. I won't go back.

I wasn't too impressed with the food but it was all right and others in my group seemed okay with it.

Nice location right next to the pier. Unfortunately, this also means running past the shirtless, sweaty men buzzed/drunk after a day of fishing. It is a great location, can watch the surfers and kite surfers do their thing while waiting for a table or, if lucky in your table seating, while dining. As most other reviewers have pointed out, the... More

If you didn't have to penetrate the pier fishermen, this would be the ideal restaurant for seafood at the beach. Unfortunately, you do and it can be somewhat freightening to park in the parking lot and wade through the pickup trucks and fisherman who seem to only come out at night. Once you get into the restaurant, you will find... More

This is the only restaurant we could find in EI with waterfront dining. OMG! How is that possible!!! When we walked in, it was like being transported back in time. What year is it Bushwackers? I’m guessing the 70s? The place has really cheesy safari décor, brace yourself. Any wood paneling. So we had to sit at the bar bc... More

We visited here just a few days ago on a recent beach vacation. We were driving around not really sure where we wanted to go, and we just kind of wound up here. I checked the menu before going in, and they had something I wanted to try, so we went in. First of all, yes, you may catch a... More

Very average food that is unbelievably over priced. A basic burger and fries ran me 10 bucks and that was with only water as my drink. The service was slow. Our young waitress kept coming over and slowly asking if we wanted anything else while she eyed our table. I finally guessed she must have lost our ticket and was... More
