Little restaurant located right on the marina. The food was good, but not phenomenal. It was a little pricey. However, it was very enjoyable eating on the dock and watching the boats pass by.

We went here right after a huge storm blew through about an hour after they opened. As it is all outside seating with only umbrella protection from the elements, they were in the process of drying everything off and told us to return in 20 minutes. When we did return about 10-15 minutes later, the place was packed but we... More

The service was slow. But that's because management only had 2 servers for the entire restaurant. They hustled, but just too much. As a customer, of course, it would've been nice if a 25 table restaurant had more than 2 servers. And the food was bad. But ... they do give you a free plastic cup.

Casual drinks overlooking the harbor. Nothing exceptional. Champagne cocktails and beer. You sit outside and watch the charter fishing boats come in. Did not like the amount of flies that were buzzing around. Our waitress was great and very friendly.

We had a really nice lunch. Love the location, and the food was good. I had a grilled fish sandwich, and the fish was very fresh. My husband & daughter had hamburgers, which they enjoyed. It was a busy day, and our waitress was great. Really good casual restaurant.

This is a great lunch spot with beautiful views... the service is hit or miss. The music level can be overwhelming when you are trying to enjoy the scenery. YES, it is a bar, but still not everybody enjoys noise pollution when eating. I recommend the calamari basket.

We had a great time having a drink and watching all the fishing boats come in and seeing all the beautiful fish that were caught! The bar was outside and we love dining outside!

We ate lunch with a large group and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. The food was good and my fresh fish sandwich was excellent. I liked having the ability to choose how the fish was cooked. The food was a little slow, but U.S. Lunch during the tourist season. I would recommend this to others.

Great view of Ocracoke sitting at the bar. Its small and busy so expect to wait a bit. I had a burger and it was great. Saw other meals that looked good too. Order draft beer and you'll get a free souvenir cup.
