Good Food

The food was excellent and reasonably priced. We did not dine in, only take-out. Parking can be an issue at lunch and dinner times

Went there about 3:00 (not peak meal time). Food was outstanding and reasonably priced. We were able to order from the lunch menu. Service was excellent. I recommend eating INSIDE on a warm day, but I am sure the outside seats would be nice later on in the evening. I highly recommend this place!

Great seafood restaurant in the heart of Kure Beach. Excellent food each night we ate there. Excellent adult beverages. The service was good each time and we loved the atmosphere. Reasonably prices for a seafood restaurant at the beach.

We got a table on the roof so we could watch the ocean. That was our really purpose, but the food was actually quite good. We also had a good view of the ocean too. Keep in mind that sitting on the roof can be quite warm. It was later in the day and was really not a problem. We... More

We have tried multiple items from here. We usually eat here at least two times every time we visit Kure Beach. Food is good. Service is usually good as well. There is a variety of food on the menu.

The service was great.....nice menu...reasonably priced....walking distance or even a bike ride. Only bad thing they allow smoking if you want to sit outside.

Excellent, fast and friendly service...our server kept drinks filled and checked in with us regularly without being intrusive. Crab dip with pita points was creamy and delicious. Fried flounder and fried oysters were excellent. Broiled scallops a bit on the tough side. Broiled shrimp were tiny but tender. We will return!

Went in on a whim. The food was very good. We all had some form of seafood. The grouper wrap was by far the best. Salmon club was good. Crab cake sandwich was good.

We sat on the upper level outside. The view of the ocean was second to none. The wine was good for a resonable price. The fish and chips was excellent and the starter of Calamri a fabulous first course. The flounder melted in your mouth and was fresh. We also pushed the boat with cocktails from the bar, great value... More
