Wonderful experience Time after time

Each time we have gone the food has been exceptional!! The service is always great as well. They do have a small seating space so small parties are better.

Love the small, cozy surf feel to the restaurant. Food is awesome and lots of options in what to drink. So sad it will be closed for the winter! My family frequents this place for $1/2 PBR night, this was my first time and I loved it!!! Will be back. <3

Choice of a small indoor seating area or take out. Wine and a handful of bottled beers served. Thursday night is taco and $1.00 PBR night. Taco selection was interesting and tasty. Service was with several smiles. Food was delicious...price was great!

Heard about Taco Thursday word of mouth from a guy that drives down from Williamsburg,Va every week. Worth the drive for the $1 beef tacos. But if you're not on a tight budget, splurge the bit extra for their "specialty tacos"! (Check the chalkbboard). You'll be back for more!!! Wish taco Thursday was EVERY night!!

My family and I ate here on a recent trip to OBX. My kids loved their chicken tenders and my fish tacos were delicious as well. My husband said it was the best cheese steak he'd ever had. Very low-key place in a tiny strip mall, but awesome food and friendly service.

Try to go on a Saturday for the Prime Rib sandwiches, the best I've ever had and they sell out quickly. I mostly do a fish special, whether a sandwich or tacos, and am never disappointed. All food is so fresh, prepared on the spot, and so fairly priced. I'm not a potato fan, so I get a side something... More

Delicious gem we found this past summer will blow off your flip flops ! Located in an unassuming strip mall, this delightful, well run restaurant, will put a happy smile on your face. The past few visits we had their Rockfish cooked in various ways. The fresh Tuna and Mahi, also offered in various ways, is equally as good. Blackened,... More

What can I say about this wonderful little gem of a nosh spot? It's wonderful homemade tex-mex, southwestern cooking! There Taco Thursdays is a must! Everything on the menu is delicious and something I'd order again in a heart beat. There Nachos with roasted corn salsa and homemade pico de gaillo is fabulous and ever so addicting! The staff treat... More

Loved the fresh food (no microwave or re-heated meals here!). The restaurant is small, but they do a good job at making it cozy and the art is so fun! Service was good and the wait time was reasonable.
