Nice.

We stopped in here on our tour, and it was delightful. The view was great, and the crab dip and fresh pita chips hit the spot.

We enjoyed the view and the service was excellent. Was not so impressed with the grits though. Only ate breakfast there.

The staff was warm, energetic and seemed interested in giving us exactly what we wanted. We ate breakfast there each morning and didn't have to share references after the first meal. They remembered. The menu was simple but everything was very nice and served quickly.

My husband and I recently stayed at the attached Sea Ranch Resort.

I was really looking forward to eating at this restaurant. We called the at 3 in the afternoon to inquire about a reservation. I talked to some lady who was very friendly and after we talked about the menu, she took my reservation for 4 at 8:00. When we arrived at 7:50PM two of the wait staff advised us there... More

I am very concerned about the lack of communication and would certainly like the chance to right the situation. This is not indicative of how we want our operation to run. Please contact me directly at johnromm@searanchresort.com. Thank you. More

Very affordable too! I had an egg sandwich and couldn't finish it all. Beat breakfast potatoes ever...soft and creamy on the inside, crunchy exterior. Great atmosphere...cozy and a friendly staff to boot. We'll be back!

We are here 3 times while on vacation, one dinner and two breakfasts. The dinner was very nice, but the breakfasts are memories I'll share for years. We sat on the patio each morning enjoying the ocean breeze and watching dolphins swim around just off shore. It was awesome.

Are you in Outer Banks? Do not miss this restaurant in the Sea Ranch Resort. Food was fresh and prepared very well. The service superb. We are talking about fine dining without the extreme prices.... I'm a foodie....you will not be disappointed I promise.

Very few (any?) OBX restaurants are oceanfront. This is. Breakfasts are big and excellent. Happy hour every day with reduced price oysters and shrimp. Music Thur-Sat nites. Excellent service. Prices are reasonable. Not fancy, but very well done.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We can't push enough that we are one of the few truly "oceanfront" restaurants on the Outer Banks. We are glad that you pointed that out because we want to go straight up from there with great food and service to match. Thanks again!! More
