We stopped in here for some local seafood and were not disappointed. The crab dip was amazing. The waiter was very knowledgeable about all of the seafood sourcing, and when he wasn't sure he went to ask his manager. The seating area was big, and...More

Second time going here and just as disappointing as the first time. A less than mediocre restaurant trying so hard to be something it’s not....a high end restaurant. Inflated prices, poor service, and fast food quality. Much better choices nearby.

Upscale beachy food. Expansive menu w/ bisques and outre (?!) salads. Tasty, well-presented. Seaside decor: oars, nets, portholes, wooden, clean, very nice. Great staff.

Thoroughly enjoyed this place. For vegetarians, finding a good place to eat at the beach can be challenging. From the fried pickles and beet salad appetizers to the mushroom ravioli and curry dish entrees, everything was delicious. Also loved all the N.C. beers available.
