It's a nice looking place with the charm of the Outer Banks but there are many other places I'd rather eat. There was nothing special about the food, average not bad but nothing to remember either. It's not worth the time at least for dinner. Other reviews speak well of the breakfast so perhaps that's the time to go but... More

The place seemed promising when we first entered as people were friendly. However, the service is very slow, if not painful, and we had to wait a very long time to pay as the credit card machine was not working. The food was average with small portions and lacking on culinary creativity. I can see the appeal as it is... More

Real southern biscuits, access to apple butter, best hash browns ever, eggs to order and three big ole country store windows to eat in front of! What's not to love!

They messed up a little but we didnt care. The chipped beef on homemade bread was delicious, I had to send my eggs over easy back they were overdone but they made all right and reduced the bill. Really cute inside. Service was so nice I was sorry I said anything.

We began to vacation at OBX many years ago and always ate at Jockey' Ribs because it was truly delicious - the ribs and fried chicken to die for! This year we came back after a hiatus and found our memorable restaurant had changed names. We tried the breakfast one day and it was delicious with great service and not... More

Stopped in on a Saturday morning around 9 before we left town. Not very busy so seated quickly. Smaller place but nice atmosphere. Menu sampling was abundant and prices were really good. Definitely got our money's worth and the service was great too. Little hometown feel to it. Located right next to KD Kites, it's definitely the place we'll go... More

My family and I had dinner here on a Friday night in July. It was our first time eating at the cafe. Let me start out by saying 2 of our 4 meals were fried chicken and boy do we love good seasoned fried chicken. The fried chicken dinner and the kids chicken tenders both had the same crispy batter...

Our first choice restaurants had long wait time so we decided to try this cafe -- we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food we had and the service was excellent. The southern fried chicken was the best I've ever had in a long time. Lightly battered crispy and juicy all at the same time. I wished they came... More
