“Good foor, lack of respect for paying customers”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Little place, had a hard time seating our party. We all sat at the bar, but couldn't converse. It was fine, until the server decided we were all still one party so they could tack on the automatic gratuity. Didn't think this was very fair, considering we were all sat in one long line and could only talk to the person next to you... Food was good, smoothies were great. Cute place with potential, but server refused to split our checks. We took the check and divided it out among our selves, each couple paying a certain amount on a credit card (to add up to the proper total), but apparently that is also an issue for them. They openly joked and criticized us (with us in earshot) about how we were stupid and must not "understand what no separate checks meant". The lack of respect ruined the experience for me. They didn't have to do the separate check work, we figured it out ourselves. They just had to run an extra card or two....

“HAVE TO Stop for Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Read the reviews and had to give it a try, well first try was dinner, but they only do lunch. Went the next day for the BEST fish tacos I have ever eaten, blackened rockfish was my choice and no disappointment, real real tasty! My wife had the quesadilla, Philly style, she said it was delicious. This a a must stop in Buxton!!

“Fun and Delicious Restaurant - absolutely worth a stop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Oh man. What a surprise - this place was amazing! We found ourselves in this small town for lunch and after looking at two other places that were closed, we found ourselves here. Good thing the other places were closed because on our Outer Banks road trip, this was one of the best places we ate! We heard great things about their fish tacos, BUT their menu had so much to offer and so many unique items that we felt we had to try something different. Our waitress suggested her favorite - the crab cake avocado wrap. And my husband and I also couldn't resist the pineapple, shrimp and cheddar quesadilla. We ordered both and split them. I still dream about both. The crab cake was so awesome, and the avocado just made it fantastic. The quesadillas sounded weird (which is why we got them) but they were SO good. My fave was the crab cake wrap, but my husband's fave was the quesadilla. Either way, we both thoroughly enjoyed our lunches and wished this place could be closer to home so we could visit more often.

Bonus: If you sit at the bar, it's lined with card games. What a brilliant idea to pass the time and have a lot of fun while waiting for your food. My husband and I were having so much fun with the game in front of us (like a 'Guess Who I Am' in five clues game) that we could've stayed for hours.

This place knows what they are doing. The staff is so friendly, the food is fantastic, the seafood is fresh and the times are fun! :)

“cute place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but cute decor inside. Food was great. Had the fish tacos, definitely enough for two. Someone else had the mermaid quesadilla and said it was good too. I'd definitely recommend to friends.

“Do Not Miss This Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Holy moly, this place was great! Friendly, cozy atmosphere and a menu full of so many delicious choices we could hardly decide. But, we were so happy to pick the fish tacos. This was one of the best lunches i have ever had in a restaurant....and get the onion rings to go with it. We wanted to have breakfast here, too but they were closed on Sunday morning...it might have been because it was after Labor Day.
