We had to try this restaurant after seeing it on Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives." The food did not disappoint. Great atmosphere too.

Good place to eat on the way to the Lost Colony. Food is good to average - fish tacos were rated excellent to good by the ones that had them. Chicken Mole' is very good and the kids had burgers and pizza which I'd judge to the average. Not much to look at but the service was good and food... More

Seriously, the food was awesome. We had a little bit of everything and ended up coming back again the next time we were down in the outer banks. Inventive - you can tell their chef loves to put together great food. We tried the fish tacos that they are famous for - and their fajitas. Fajitas won for me, but... More

Pretty good food. Pricing is fair to slightly higher than average. The atmosphere is cool and it is located near the waterfront down town area. It really seems in an odd spot, close to residential but not quite in the old down town restaurant strip. But it is really just a block off. Well worth the trip. Enjoyed the food... More

Oh the food is just heavenly! I can honestly not say enough about this place and the people who work there! We went 4 nights in a row during our week long visit and if we had gone here the first night we probably would have gone all seven nights we were in town!

We make it a point to dine here every year on our trip to the Outer Banks; food is always great as well as the service. Chips & Salsa are excellent! Try the fish tacos; they are amazing!

A few minutes from Nags Head, small detour on the way to Hatteras Island was well worth the trip. Decided on this restaurant after watching Diners Drive ins and Dives on the Food Network. Taco+Pulled pork with house tortilla chips was amazing as was the fish taco. Very nice atmosphere and great staff. Will return on future trips to OBX,... More
