We ate dinner here on recommendation of clerk at hotel we had just checked into and this was the only place that looked open in "historic Plymouth" on Friday evening-other places and fast food out of town on route 64. Service was prompt, food very good- fried shrimp dinner and that amazing sweet tea! There was a group of about... More

We had a nice lunch there, but the visit was tainted by the woman at the cash register. When we mentioned we were from Massachusetts it was like we'd fouled the air. Her response was "well, God bless you. I'd come south every chance I got too". When we left my husband said "what the heck was that?" I replied,... More

Garden Spot lives up to its name - light and airy with trellises, plants and flowers. There is a subtle Christian presence here along with a full ABC license, no draft beers, but a good selection of bottles. We split a shrimp wrap, which came hot and toasted, large shrimp embedded in gooey melted cheddar. After lunch take a short... More

The shrimp wrap was outstanding. This is a spot where the locals eat and it is easy to see why. Food looked and tasted home made. No microwave here.

picked a halfway venue between Raleigh and OBX for a family get together. Found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and am very pleased with the food and service. Please make sure you note the times/days they are open...We had to be there between 11AM-2PM or twe would have missed a great meal. The lemon cake and chocolate peanut butter cake... More

We were headed to the OBX and didn't want fast food. I looked up places on Yelp and found this little diner. Service is super friendly, everything is homemade. We both got wraps - shrimp and chicken - and they were really good. The potato salad wasn't my cup of tea but I'm sure it suits a lot of folks.... More

My wife ordered chops w/delicious potatoes and cabbage. But, when I ordered a side of the cabbage they said "No, unless you order the whole entry." Very disppointing!
