ACC Never disappoints.

Went to ACC during our annual OBX trip and had another great meal. I had the fried combo and the wife had the shrimp platter, both were delicious. We also shared an order of disco fries that were also very good. We always enjoy going to ACC when we are on vacation. If you like fresh seafood give... read more

Drove all night to beat the traffic & planned on having a nice breakfast to kill time until we could go to our rental house. The owner had suggested this place for breakfast but I don't think she'd had it. Super crowded, you order at the counter then go sit but when there's nowhere to sit that makes it a... More

We stopped there based on the good reviews but we found that the breakfast food was average! $40 for a family of four which I think is kind of pricey. My teens had chocolate and banana pancakes and they couldn't tell that there were any chocolate or bananas in them. My breakfast sandwich was bland! Hubby said his food was... More

Best BBQ sandwich I have ever had! Order at the counter and they bring it to you.. Not a sit down restaurant, but a must for a quick meal without the fanfare. 9year old stated best place we are all week, he had a chicken wrap.

I went with a group of 8 friends. We had a great variety of food.No complaints from anyone but Beki especially loved the sweet potato fries. I had a veggie wrap that was full of grilled fresh veggies. Looking forward to visiting them again next year for breakfast!

We left the teens at the campground and headed here due to past reviews. The soup was ok but not very warm. You order up front. I had a couple you can download online. they accepted it with my smartphone. The fish bites would good but needed more seasoning. The burger was ok but they serve it with potato chips.... More

We go here all the time when camping on the beach. Mostly we go for breakfast, but they have an extensive lunch menu too. We are always pleased. We also like to take breakfast sandwhiches the day we leave for the road. Kick butt trained team too. Always great service.

Restaurant has a little outside seating which is nice. Grab menus, go pick a table, when ready to order go to counter and place it, carry your drinks back to your table. Food delivered to your table. Lady taking order was difficult to understand and not friendly. After food was delivered no one followed up on order. Best meal was... More
