My wife and I have eaten at this wonderful OBX restaurant at least 7 or 8 times before and have always walked away full, smiling and talking about how fantastic our meals were. However, I can't remember a time when I did not get some type of seafood oriented dish. Why wouldn't I, they never miss. But, last night I just wasn't in the mood for seafood so I went out on a limb and ordered the ribeye steak, medium. When it arrived it was mounded-up in the back against a healthy serving of mashed potatoes that were additiionally coupled with a layer of asparagus and to either side of the steak were small bundles of onion strings. The first bite of the steak was so delicious that I cut another mouthful immediately. I couldn't believe it, I was actually having one of the best steaks I have ever eaten at one of my favorite seafood restaurants. God is good! I mean it, this steak was perfect. It was cooked beautifully, just to the rare side of medium (my favorite) with a great sear and topped with a butter/glaze that gave both a pleasing garlic taste and a little pepper heat. Put it all together and there are few things that will make a carnivore happier. Our waiter later told me that the Flying Fish gets their beef from Brandt Farms in California. If you have never tried the Flying Fish Cafe, you owe it to yourself enjoy a dinner there. Seafood or beef, you cannot go wrong.
