According to the menu all the seafood is fresh and local. We found a varied menu and the seafood did appear to be fresh. We are a couple of average size, but where we were sitting it felt very cramped. The tables seemed close together and we felt like we were part of our neighbors conversations. It was busy, but not crowded, and not a place I'd consider during the summer months. Reservations aren't accepted and there was no wait for us on the Saturday evening after Christmas. The food was good, but was a bit more expensive than we have paid for similar meals in the Outer Banks. The service was outstanding in the bar area and also the restaurant.
There are so many restaurants in the Outer Banks that serve excellent seafood and we'll probably put this one at the middle of our list.
