Tuesday evening in November, everywhere we tried was closed (6:30 pm, no kidding). This is definitely more of a local bar, so if that isn't your atmosphere, don't bother. We were greeted in a timely, friendly manner. Our waitress was excellent, I wish I could remember her name. She warned us everything is made fresh and asked for patience in... More

Down here in November with the locals. Not much open. We happened upon Ike's and have dined here two nights in a row. Will probably make it three. Crab cakes out of this world. Chicken fried chicken delicious. Can not explain how good the seafood nachos are. This is a bar atmosphere off season. Great place to catch a game.... More

We have had lunch there and enjoyed it before so we decided to try dinner there. A bit of a letdown. Shrimp and grits were bland and more cheesy than seafood (even after loading them up with hot sauce). Crab cake sandwich was really good (no filler - all crab) so not a total loss. Interesting beer selections, too. Really... More

Lunch done well, pleasant surprise. Small place great food outstanding atmosphere. Service was good and prices reasonable for OBX. My wife ordered the crabby wings absolutely amazing I must try. I absolutely enjoyed the smokehouse burger it was done to perfection. We hope to find time to drop in to this place again.

I use this site to look up every where we go and when it comes to food I wouldn't trust another site I checked out the reviews for this place and thought the family of 8 and two little ones it looked good. So the place is very small not at all what I thought it was and it is... More

We went there twice last week ~ once, on Sunday night and then again a few nights later. Sunday night, the place was full with football watchers and there was a sign that said "Wait to be Seated" but no one came out. Short while late, a guy came from the other side with a broom in hand, pointed and... More

I had the fish tacos and fri e which were excellent. Great flavor. Little over priced at 17 dollars. My wife had the chicken and crab sandwich with fries. The flavor was exceptional the crab was cooked right and really accented the chicken. I would definitely go again. Atmosphere is also great just a little over priced for the portions... More

Granted, we went in the off-season, but I was not impressed. Our waiter was uninformed on the Gluten-free aspects of the menu, and the GF pickin's were slim. My hubby got the seafood special and thought it was kind of bland. I had the scallops and the were watery and tough. My son-in-law had the Seafood Mac-n-Cheese and thought it... More

We had a group of 9 including five kids ages 5 to 14. Everyone was able to find something to their liking. We all enjoyed our meals. Nothing fancy, very casual.

Had dinner with kids and this place is amazing! The fish tacos and crabby fries were awesome! Great laid back feel and their mixed drinks were really good too!
