“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

Everything Was Just Average, Nothing Special. Service Was Rather Slow. Blackened Tuna Was Bland. A Bit Overpriced For The Quality.

“Good food and exceptional service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

We made reservations and were seated within a few minutes of arrival. Our very friendly and extremely efficient waitress, Brooke, served our family group a great dinner. Several of us had the Alaskan crab legs which were quite flavorful. The steak was cooked perfectly to order and was delicious. Both the chicken tenders and fried shrimp were lightly breaded and enjoyed by several people in our party. Everything came out hot and fresh. Brooke came back regularly to check on us and kept the drinks filled, and the table cleared of empty dishes. We have been here in previous years and will continue to come back.

“Laid back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Seafood was above average, portions pretty large for the price. Very close to the Hatteras lighthouse.

“Great Sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

They have a sushi chef on staff, not just someone in the back. The sushi was very fresh and delicious. The service was OK,, our waitress disappeared.

“wonderful fresh seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We had the fresh black grouper and red snapper. Both were excellent, veggies were tasty and service was good. I would definitely come back. Decor is rustic and casual.
