“Good food - mediocre service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

Food was great. I had the turkey sandwich and my friend had the BLT. Excellent. Service was really slow. My friend & I ordered right after one another. She had her food ~5 minutes after she ordered. I waited another 5-10 minutes, finally asked, and my food had been sitting to the side the whole time. Not right.

The scenery, however, was great!

“THEEEE BEEESSTT!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014 via mobile

Me and a few friends from raleigh decided to take a shot trip for the weekend and happened to stumble across this place. The prices, food, and staff were amazing, even had a chat with the owner who was also super friendly. We all received our food within no time after our order. Will definitely be back again come summer time!

“great restaurant for Food and drinks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

This is the perfect spot for lunch/dinner overlooking the waterfront. It is very inexpensive and their reubens are the best!

“Good meal, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

We walked here from where we were staying at the White Doe Inn. On Thursday night there was a trivia contest. I had the sailor sandwich and my wife had a salad. Both were excellent! At some tourist you feel like an outsider. Here, the locals accepted us as one of their own at the contest and we had a great time.

If you want the best food in town follow the locals and this is where you will land. Great sandwich, amazing soup, and fun atmosphere.
