“Good breakfast spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

There aren't too many breakfast spots in Buxton, NC if you want a full breakfast. This was a good place. I had an omelette - it was kind of flat. Biscuit was fluffy. Service was okay. The waitress was very friendly when she came by but it wasn't frequently enough. The restaurant was freezing. I had to go to the vehicle to get a jacket.

“Very good seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We ate here twice in our short stay. We walked from Cape hatteras B and B. All kinds of seafood options. Fresh catch options posted on a blackboard. My MAHI MAHI was great. Husband had pork chops, prepared well and good. Great, friendly waitresses. A casual spot, good service.

“Excellent seafood with a great salad bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

People love the sushi here. Seafood is the best around and reasonable for OBX. Servers are attentive and very nice. The seafood platters are humongous and yummy. My favorite appetizer was the potato skins. The oysters, shrimp and crab cakes are the best around. The Captains Table has better hush puppies but they charge for them and the wait staff herds you in and out like drovers on a cattle drive. The salad bar is the freshest and most extensive on Hatteras Island.
Good stuff for sure!

“Terrific fresh catch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We had dinner here 3 times during our 2 week stay. My husband twice chose to have a bowl of the terrific clam chowder and the salad bar. I had the fresh catch: tuna, grouper. Love their cole slaw, and their seasoned green beans were very good. Consistently good quality food and friendly service.

“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.
