Staff was friendly and accommodating. They were very helpful in dealing with my mom's food allergy. The food was fantastic I love that fact that they offer a gluten free bun for their sandwiches. The price was good. :)

We had lunch after taking the ferry in from Hatteras. Fried mushroom and pickle appetizer was okay. Mushroom and Swiss burger was pretty good. Probably not a bad choice given the limited places open off season.
