This is an amazing location on the sound in Rodanthe. Kite boarders flying along the water, entertain you while dining. The lunch prices for huge portions of fish and chips or Spinach Salad with crispy mahi bites were a bit high but the scenery softened the blow:) A tiny locale with amazing sites. A scenic, fairly long drive from Nags... More

My advice would be to stick to the appetizers, the entrees are so-so at best. Mahi Mahi bites and calamari were delicious. My salad was drowning in dressing. I'd asked for red wine vinaigrette and got a creamy caesar type dressing with some red wine vinegar mixed it. Not a good combo. Dinner partner's fish was dry and practically inedible.... More

Decent food, friendly service. Brought water foe the dog. Supposed to take dog up outdoor stairs in back but we had already walked inside. They were very nice about it and let us walk through to the deck.

A nice place for lunch or dinner overlooking the water and kite boarders. Sit on huge deck if weather permits. Fish and chips are usually excellent. Dark & Stormies are the perfect choice on a rainy day.

there is a awesome view from the restaurant. We found the hush puppies to be well done and crunchy. My crab did not taste like crab was very bland. my wife was not thrilled with her meal. The reason for 3 stars is the view would of been a 2

During a weeks vacation, we dined at this place twice. Something very unusual for us. We went the second time for the prime rib specia, to which they were out of. It was an hour prior to closing, so hey...Both of our meals were simply great both nights. The service was very good. All in all, yes, we'd go again... More

We went for lunch and got a bacon burger (husband) and fish tacos (me). It was so good and a big helping! The fries were amazing as well. The back deck has a wonderful view of the kite boarders!

We ate a late lunch/early dinner recently. Appetizers are half price from 3 to 5 pm. We tried several and all were good; especially the Asian shrimp. Portions were generous. Mixed drinks were good, though a little expensive for the serving size. All of the food we saw coming out of the kitchen looked very good. There are nightly dinner... More

Started our week long 'seafood extravaganza' here. The crab cakes and crab-stuffed flounder were delicious. The view of Pamlico Sound was a great back drop to our first night's dining experience, even if it was raining during our meal. Fortunately the rain stopped by the time we left. Our server was very friendly and helpful, and made sure we were... More

The service was excellent, and the food was great too! Their crab cakes are delish and have a ton of crab in them. I had crab cakes and my husband had the crab cake sandwich and both were great. We went a second time and he got fried scallops basket which was pretty good and I got alfredo which was... More
