Fine food, clean, bright, inside and outside tables, serves breakfasts in small frying pans (not black cast iron but French omelets pans), good coffee, wonderful fresh salads, sandwiches. Kids pancakes in the shape of Mickey Mouse with choc chips were wonderful. Sausage gravy over excellent biscuits were my favorite. Absolutely no one in the group had a complaint about anything...

Our breakfast was good once we finally got it but the staff was awful. Of course you pay in advance (adding tip) and then you get terrible service. We are local so they turned off good potential customers.

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience with us. I would appreciate knowing how the staff was rude to you so we can fix the issue. I would also appreciate knowing the time of day you were here so I can check my computer and see exactly what was going on at that time to explain why... More

We arrived for a late dinner around 7pm. We thought the place was closed, but the door said they closed at 9pm so we went in. One had marinated salmon with a cucumber salad and one had the applewood turkey and bacon panni with apples and chips. The food was GREAT! We loved every bite! But it was sad how... More

Stopped in here later in the evening on a Saturday night after an afternoon on the beach. Interesting selection of wines, microbrew beers, eclectic soft drinks, old school snacks and desserts, gourmet chips and such, as well as deli-style sandwiches. I had an Italian sandwich while my son had the half-sandwich and cup of soup. My sandwich was fantastic, and... More

My new bride and I were looking for something to nibble on when we were on the beach and looked for a sandwich place. This place looked particularly appealing and we stopped. I got the Cubana and my wife got the hummus sandwich. We got them to go, packed them in the cooler, and headed to the beach. We stopped... More

We came here with 2 adults, 3 kids. The cashier who took our order was quite unpleasant, & one of the servers was rude, as well. Also, tables were slow to be cleaned. They weren't too busy but we waited well over 40 mins for food, finally, we asked for the food to go and left to come back later... More

My family stopped in for lunch and we were glad we did. The GLG is tucked away from tourist spots so it seemed the others dining were locals. I had a Cobb Salad, it was large with the best selection of veggies I have had on a salad. It came with a warm dinner roll, it was more than I... More

stop by here every year when I'm in OBX. Great sandwich selection. I had the salmon and it was prepared perfectly. Have had many other options and never disappointed. Only negative was that the indoor area wasn't air-conditioned on the day I was there this time. The fans were on but the humidity was high and it was stuffy. Still,... More

I had been here before a few years ago, and returned this summer with my husband and child. There was some confusion over the menus. I saw 2 menus, one that listed breakfast only and one that listed breakfast and lunch items on a table when you first walk in. When I asked a worker behind the counter if we... More

Stumbled on this place because it is literally next door to another one of my favorite OBX places, Trio. We just so happened to be visiting for restaurant week and for $20 we both got eggs cooked to order, two slices of bacon, two link sausages, toast, and pancakes with coffee.. and the food was phenomenal. excellent value. The atmosphere... More
