Washington, NC is our newly adopted home town, so we were looking forward to our first visit to this restaurant. It's an inviting looking eatery in and ideal river front location and we have the impression that this is where locals gather on a regular basis, both for lunch and after work drinks and socializing. Our impression though, is that... More

This is the one restaurant in Washington that our local business clients said we had to try, and I completely agree. The location on the water is beautiful and the food is excellently prepared and artfully presented. The large outdoor patio offers wonderful views of the water and the sunset. Prices are very reasonable for the quality. I highly recommend... More

We ate on the patio overlooking the sound. Good food, wonderful view, good service. Sat at the bar for a very short wait time on a Friday night. They were out of oyster that night but it was later in the evening. I would go back again.

Joined a party of 6, always tough on the waitstaff. Quick and very pleasant attitude. Seafood platter was an exceptional value. Fresh selection a local seafood well presented and properly cooked. The restaurant offers a variety of seating options from patio to oyster bar and semi-upscale dining room. You might expect a moderate wait for a table on event evenings.... More

Our favorite restaurant in Washington. It has a great oyster bar with pub tables for families. Separate restaurant for more intimate dining experience. Known for their seafood. They serve NC Shrimp and have oysters year around. Water views from their patio dining. A great choice for meeting family and friends.

The view of the water from the patio is great. Our waitress was very nice and helpful. I knew before going there my choices would be limited since I'm vegan, but my spouse wanted to have lunch on the water. I had planned on just getting their salad bar, but the salad bar was pretty pathetic. I ended up getting... More

Considering there are limited fine dining options in Washington, one would expect that the food here would be excellent like the view and atmosphere of the restaurant is. The food is horrible. The crab dip I ordered was stuck in one big lump and cold. The bread was stale and the fried onion rings fell apart into a greasy mess.... More

We sat outside on the patio for a late Sunday lunch--five of us. The water view was beautiful--the best part of the meal. We had a super nice waitress. So, the hamburger that I ordered medium came very well-done and very dry and barely warm, as were the fries. I was disappointed that they couldn't get a $10 burger right--or... More

Sat on the porch overlooking the river -- very enjoyable. Entrees were quite good, excellent seafood choices. Three different inside seating choices, including an oyster bar.

Sat outside right off the water. Very nice view. Service good. But fried shrimp were terrible. Tasted like precooked. Tough and batter very hard. Scallops also too fried. May try again and hope for fresh seafood.
