We really like coming here. The locals here are always friendly and treat you like family. The atmosphere is what you would expect from the beach.

We went for dinner on a Saturday night, there was an hour wait which was to be expected. While waiting you are free to go to their gift shop next door or the bar upstairs, we did both. We got drinks from the bar, which were good. The staff was friendly, knowledgable and helpful. Customer service was a obvious priority.... More

Intrigued by the name! Drew us in and we were glad. Went early for supper and didn't have to wait. Service was fast and great. Busy place! Would eat here again.

We arrived at 4:45 and there was already a line forming for a dinner table. No problem; my husband and I just ate at the bar, which was great fun. The bartenders were charming, and it was a treat to watch them shuck the seafood in front of us. The food was very good.

Our family is on vacation in Kitty Hawk, NC. We have 8 Adults, and 5 children. This restaurant is small, but they have an impressive menu. Our waitress did a great job taking car of us, and the food was great. We will go back!! They also have a local "Awful Arthur nutty brew" on tap that is a must!!

I stayed at a beach house a few blocks away and we enjoyed our drinks and meal so much the first time we went, that we ate here a second time that week. The staff is very friendly and even though there was a long wait for a table, there was a bar area upstairs (with an ocean view) to... More

This is a great place to eat if you are looking for fresh seafood without spending a fortune. The wait was a bit long, but there was a bar upstairs with a great ocean view where we enjoyed a few drinks while we waited. Once seated, service was quick and friendly, and the food was extremely good for the price.... More

We went in for dinner on 06/16/14 at 6:36 in the evening. Our waitress was not the friendliest one I have had but, I tried to overlook that maybe it was just her personality or a bad day. There were 5 of us total. My cousins were on separate checks. We ordered are food. My cousin had the snow crab... More
