“Take your time and enjoy the food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2009

Slower pace even though they were never busy, but worth it 100%. Best place we ate at on the OBX. Went there for dinner twice on our week there. Fish, shrimp, scallops; fried, steamed or grilled/blackened; it was all great. Nothing fancy, just good food. Great desserts, too.

“Great food and a good price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2009

We ate there for lunch, my daughter ordered a cheeseburger (don't like seafood), I got the grouper sandwich and my wife got the Calamari. All the food was great at a good price, I think it was around $30 for all 3 of us. Don't stop at the food, there gift shop is small but the prices are good. The refrigerator magnets were around $2 and the restaurant tee shirts were $13.
