Great menu - fast efficient service - great view!

Good menu - steaks, burgers, salads and specializing in fresh local seafood - attentive waitstaff. A little hard to find but the deck has spectacular views right on the inlet to the ocean

Weekday dinner, no crowd - service was excellent and the food great. I understand why folks get upset about the service of a great restaurant during the summer season. The kitchen here is small compared to large chain restaurants. But the view of the inlet is amazing, the wine list adequate and the food good. I had The special which... More

Very nice location, ok food, horrible service. We were there this past Saturday and waited over two hours to get our orders. Some were good, some were cold, some were missing sides. Food was not worth the wait. We will not be returning.

We are really sorry for the wait. The Beaches are full and we are doing everything that we can to get everyone seated as quicky possible. The ticket time on the other check was 12 minutes before you. They had all fried food, and some of yours was grilled. Everythng here is cooked to order. Yours was on a tray... More

Sent my boyfriend here because of the great reviews. He is only in Shallotte for the day. He was seated and ordered a beer and a water to start. The restaurant wasn't busy. The waitress brought his water... and then never came back. So now I am sending him to duffy's. Maybe he wont get the same view, but at... More

Please give us call and ask for Sam or Timmy. We really would like to know the date and time. That way we can track down who the server was. That's not how we do busniess, Duffy's is a great place, but we are all about service. If anything likes this happens anywhere ask for a manager. Thank you. More

We visited for the first time last night based on a recommendation from a friend. It did not disappoint. The hush puppies were fantastic. I had the stuffed flounder which was huge and very flavorful and my husband had the fantail shrimp which he enjoyed very much. We had a great view of the Inlet looking onto Ocean Isle and... More

Yesterday we decided to drive over to Inlet View. The last and only time that we were there was last fall as they were about to close out the season. The food was good then but it was dark and we couldn't appreciate the view so we decided it would be a nice to return for an anniversary lunch. Yesterday... More

Our first visit to the Inlet View was on a Saturday in early May, but boy were they busy!! Some of our food was very good (Blackened Flounder) and some was just OK (Fried Shrimp). The restaurant has a great view from the upper deck, but it was windy and very crowded, so we dined inside. It is very noisy... More

This three story bar/restaurant is a local secret. Here you can have a drink on the third floor balcony and watch the ships pass by in the intercoastal waterway. Tucked away down a road speckled with houses and farms, this restaurant serves many locals. We went for drinks and soaked up some rays. The view was spectacular, the breeze invigorating... More

Very unorganized. Waited 30+ minutes then told it would be another 30 minutes. Finally got a table after we demanded we be seated, then waited another hour before food came. Manager obviously doesn't know how to handle crowds.
