Excellent dinner!

Very nice restaurant with a fantastic view of the sound off the back deck (can have a drink on the back deck while waiting for table). A party of 9, we were seated in around 30 minutes during busy dinner hour on Friday evening. Food was very good, service was very good. We will return the next... read more

We shopped at the kite store during the day. I asked an employee if she would recommend the restaurant upstairs. She told me that she definitely would. We were renting a house across the street and walked over for dinner. It is a very small restaurant. We were quoted a 45 minutes wait for the 4 of us to be... More

Took a little while to find the entrance - it's upstairs and around back - but glad we did. Menu was interesting, service outstanding and the food was delicious. Great view of the sound too. Plan to go back next trip.

Horrible service from the start, our names were crossed off the wait list and others got seated before us. We were told to wait at the bar and they would come get us, didn't happen. Bar service was good. Then we finally got seated and were not acknowledged at all by wait staff. We left.

Went there for lunch and were not disappointed. My husband and I both had shrimp baskets. Very tasty, hush puppies and cole slaw. Beautiful view of the water. We had the pleasure of being served by Hyde. Attentive and very personable.

My boyfriend & I took a road-trip Toronto - Maryland, DC & our final stop was Salvo, Rodanthe NC. We came upon Good Wind Resto & we enjoyed a yum Seafood Steamer, Philly Cheese Steak. The staff was wonderful - Brandon our server was personable & professional.

We went there for lunch on a rainy day and sat at the bar. Service was good and we were taken care of. Views of the sound were nice and watched people kite boarding. Food was good and plenty. Good craft beer selection on tap. I would definitely go back!

Mahi Mahi lacked taste, blackened shrimp not blackened enough, steam tray was iced at ends and not cooked thoroughly. Jesse, however, has been the best server we've seen thus far in this trip.

Tried this place and we're glad we did. Many folks have complained about the wait but you should expect a wait anywhere you go during peak season for dinner. Everyone enjoyed the meals and the wait staff was very accommodating and on top of the orders and drinks. I got the shrimp po boy. It was overflowing with shrimp that... More
