We are overlooking the scenic anchorage on Banks Channel, located on beautiful Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. Our restaurant has been the Local's favorite since 1997. We welcome our guests with consistent, creative cuisine served in a friendly, casual atmosphere. You can enjoy a great burger sitting outside on our patio for lunch or experience the unique, eclectic, regional cuisine at dinner of our Chef. His menu highlights the bounty of Sea and Land, locally sourced.We also have Gluten Free/ reduced items.

Charming place for seafood lunch

Conveniently located little restaurant in the middle of Wrightsville Beach, this place had a good menu of seafood and other food options. Built in the 1960's as a bank, it has a cozy, modern retro feel. Nice covered patio out front has a water view. Our server was friendly and service was prompt... read more

The menu is fresh and excellently prepared modern twist on southern favorites like shrimp and grits (one of my favorites). A great patio to watch the sunset and have drinks when it is warm. Lunch and dinner is equally good. Salads great too. Live this place, best dinner place on the beach.

We visited on a warm sunny day in December. I missed the parking lot entrance twice but finally found our way and it was worth it. An excellent selection of craft brews and enough seafood on the menu to satisfy anyone. The "grill" in the name may give you hesitation but don't, the food is excellent. We split the seafood...

WONDERFUL seafood, lovely staff. a terrific beach-front restaurant; open during the off-season, which is wonderful for the "accidental tourist," as i was, or the intentional one.

Really good food. Get the sweet potato encrusted flounder. Quite dining and a great spot for a romantic dinner or a casual lunch. Prices are a bit on the high side but not particularly high considering the quality of the food.

Excellent food and if possible eat outside except for Sunday dinner which is very crowded and load due to locals drinks and band. Always good food and very good specials . Outside by the marina is always a nice experience
