My husband and I traveled to the Outer Banks last week for a few days. We got in late and were in search of food when we stumbled upon this place. We were greeted with a warm welcome and seated promptly. It was pretty dark outside so we completely missed the gorgeous view I've read in other reviews. Nevertheless we... More

Our dinner here was the best dining during our week-long stay. Three of us had pasta + seafood, all rave reviews - especially the scallops. Huge, and cooked to perfection - the fork slid through them like butter. The crab cake dinner was enough for two meals - and as the server promised, was all fresh, chunky lump crab with... More

Wanted a fried shrimp dinner.Ordered to go from the bar.Service was excellent and atmosphere was also.Food was just ok.Shrimp did not taste like fresh NC ,like the other restaurants in the area.A little pricey but this is the norm on Hatteras Island.

Service excellent-we had party of 12 and called ahead. In Rodanthe and didn't feel like traveling too far- being lazy. ... They were not busy on a Tuesday in August. Half price apps if you get there before 6- call ahead to confirm that. Excellent tuna app -rare - nice presentation. Caesar salad good. Others in the group enjoyed crab... More

Calamari was good. We went early to avoid the crowd. The fried fish was catfish not a catch of the day. The scallops were soaking in grease. Shrimp were good. We should have ordered sandwiches but wanted some good fried seafood. Don't make that costly mistake.

The owner of the B&B where we were staying for our long weekend visit to the Outer Banks recommended this restaurant. We arrived a little before dinner and found that they were offering 1/2 price appetizers. The seafood soup was very good and the crabcakes were wonderful. We filled up on appetizers and did not order from the dinner menu.... More

We visited this restaurant 2 years ago and had some awesome wahoo. We were very eager to return this year, but we were in for a great surprise. We ordered steamed shrimp which the advertised as fresh but they were not. They come straight out of a bag in the freezer. I got the fish tacos which were ok and... More

We visited the night before hurricane Arthur and it wasn't too busy. We were quickly seated with no wait. Lots of specials on the menu. Rockfish bites were quite tasty. Everyone enjoyed their meals. They had many local beers to try and offered samples of many of them if interested. Nice deck to watch the sound in the evening. Live... More
