Tuna bites, an appetizer with chunks of fresh tuna seasoned with just the right spices, served with fresh salsa, can be a meal in itself. Fish tacos, outstanding! Don't miss the display of the home made desserts,... More

One of the best restaurants on the Banks. Located in the historical building of the old telegraph from which Wright brothers sent their telegram about the successful flight.

It was one of the lifesaving stations back before The Wright Brothers flew their plane as a matter of fact this is the station where Wilber came to send a telegram about the success of their flight. Oh by the way the food is great also. I had a pecan mahi that... More

A woman my wife works with told her about this restaurant. We went there for lunch. It was very good. My wife had the flounder basket and I had a bacon cheeseburger. We were both pleased with our meals. The portions were large and the food was brought quickly. The staff seemed friendly and helpful. It is a cool place... More

My wife and I went here for lunch and we were very pleased. If you want a ocean view you need to be outside on second floor. There may have been a view inside but it is seen through the glass. Wait staff very friendly. The food was very good as well. It is worth going here if you are... More

Got referred to this restaurant by a local. Both the food and the service were very good. Very fresh seafood and excellent sandwiches. The wife had the Oysters Orville, which she said were very tasty. I had the prime rib dip sandwich, which was very good! We will definitely return.
