When we went to the Outer Banks, it was cold and gray. Obviously that means you need an amazing grilled cheese sandwich. This place offers one, but the waitress convinced me to get the brie, prosciutto and fig jam sandwich instead. AMAZING. Seriously, I've been trying to recreate this sandwich at home and it just isn't the same. Lovely and... More

This is wine/beer tasting faciltiy that also serves light food, such as cheeses, soups and lunch fare. They also sell wine and have an excellent selection with knowledgeable personnel. Four of us enjoyed 3 wine selections each as well as a cheese board with olives and nuts - our light lunch for the day. The soups are made in house... More

First place we hit beginning our obx vacation as we are both wine, beer and cheese lovers. We were immediately greeted as we walked in. She showed us the wine dispensers which are kind of like wine slots.. You buy a smart card which bills directly to a credit card of your choice, you slip this card into the machines... More

Great selection of wines and knowledgeable staff. However I was impressed with the fresh cheese selections. A bit pricey but wonderful choices. They are generous to let customers sample.

We stopped in for an afternoon snack. It had been a chilly windy day and decided a drink and a salty snack was called for. We randomly chose Trio and hit the jackpot. The wine selection is extensive and interesting. The bartender helped me chose a great red wine and my husband a good draft beer. The food menu is... More

Great place to stop for your hard to find wine and beer selections while in the obx. They had my wine! Wonderful cheese selection, with sampling. Quaint little restaurant for appetizers to enjoy with a glass of wine or your favorite beer. Very knowledgeable and helpful staff. A must stop when visiting obx!

I highly recommend a visit. I have to add that the retail part of the business is pretty cool, my wife and I purchased many gifts... More
