Yum

Everytime I've ever been here the food has been excellent. I don't think I've even ordered off the regular menu, I always get the special. The place is small so not suitable for very large groups, but with just a couple of friends you can't beat it.

First we went Tuesday Taco Night and did not know that this was almost a cult like event. We pull up and the parking lot looked like a tailgate at at Ravens/Steelers game. Tailgates down, beach chairs , music and people drinking Pabst Blue Ribbon? I go inside this miniscule place which was packed with customers everywhere. Happy, noisy, small.... More

We arrived early for dinner, the waitress was still writing specials on the board. My kids picked a chicken fried steak meal, I chose the rockfish basket. My food was fine, not amazing but fine, pretty small portion but fresh, clean and seasoned adequately. Neither of my boys would finish their chicken fried steak, the flavor of the breading was...

This is my favorite spot to have lunch on the OBX! Amazing fusion beach dishes and healthy eats. Great specials that keep the locals coming. Beach atmosphere and surf movies on the TV!

Big portions mean - come hungry. We'll... More

This place is outstanding. Excellent service, super fresh food, and very clean! This is a small establishment, that needs a little more room because it rocks! We will be back!
