fantastic view and fresh seafood

The outside dining on the decks or just having a drink and watching the sun set keep bringing you back to this restaurant. Seafood dishes are fresh and in good portions. Plenty of windows allow for great views from inside as well.

What a view! Great venue for a typical NC fried seafood meal. Don't expect anything extraordinary on the menu here. What you do get however is good quality fresh off the boat, mostly fried seafood. A fun place for couples and families. Before or after dinner enjoyed a walk outside and along the river and the intacoastal. Service was great... More

As locals, this is one of our favorite restaurants. The view is excellent and the food is, too. From time to time, this restaurant is overwhelmed by the sheer volume of folks that want to eat there. In a case like that, things won't be as good as usual. In a tourist area you have to take the good with... More

The thing I liked most about this place was the view. It's right on the water. It had good food, too, and the prices weren't too bad. Lots of parking. The staff was friendly and helpful.

We went here last night with another couple that had been previous. The staff were super nice and the meal was great. We are planning a large group night out to enjoy the view and food soon.

Our family always frequents this establishment on every trip to Ocean Isle beach. It's a little off of the beaten path, but it is well worth the visit. We always order the seared tuna to start off with, and it has never disappointed any of us. I personally always order the shrimp and scallops, and it's always quite yummy. My... More

Lunched on sea scallops . Hadn't had them in years, only 7 scallops, well-prepared, but very pricey! Uh, I can't forget the forgettable garden salad accompaniment . This is waterfront fish joint and has the boat dock to prove it.

We called ahead to get our name on the seating list. Arrived 20 minutes later and waited an additional 45 minutes for a first-available table. Once our table of 11 was seated, it was another 13 minutes before anyone came to our table to take drink order. Drinks came in Dixie cups because they ran out of glassware. We had... More

I am very sorry about your experience with us and I understand. I am not sure what we can do except stop call aheads. After talking to you, I will try to be more accurate at telling wait time. We fed right at 1,000 people yesterday from 4:30 until we closed. While we so appreciate the business, we would like... More
