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

There is no way to talk to your spouse without shouting it is so loud in there. Then when you add two guys trying to sing shouting wont even cut it. The food was okay but nothing special. A little pricey for no more than you get. Don't think I will ever visit there again.

We got all dressed up for a nice dinner. We walked in and the host said it would be at least 1 hour wait, while we could see several open tables. The host said we could sit at the bar and get served quickly, but that was not the case. The bartender took several minutes to come to take our... More

We went with four adults and two teens for dinner. We wanted a nice view and a good seafood dinner for a nite out. I have been going to Hatteras for over 25 years, and I would say, the view here was great of the sound, the music this guy was playing was WAY TOO LOUD, couldn't carry on a... More

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.
