We went here for dinner on the Thursday right before Hurricane Matthew was to hit land. We were almost the only people seated for dinner. The waitress was very nice and knowledgeable about all the menu items. She had a lot of patience with all of our questions... Food was fantastic but most of us did not like the slaw... More

My husband and I dined there on Sunday 09/25, early evening. We ordered 2 drinks - one was fine but the tonic was flat in the other. The salad came and we had to wait for the waitress to finish taking another order to get the dressing. The scallops were good but the "medium-rare" burger was quite rare. At that... More

So this is our normal go to place every time we come into town. Food is pretty consistent but the last time it was lacking and service was not as friendly as normal. Hope they improve.

The 8 of us had dinner here and we're very pleased. Flounder was the catch of the day We had it pan seared and fried. Very good. A couple of us had fried shrimp--excellent. Anna was our waitress and was way above what we expected--attentive, knowledgeable of dishes. We also had peanut butter cheesecake, yummy.

I hesitate to write a poor review, but the owner seems to genuinely care about feedback. We dined on Sept 15 at 5pm. We were with a group of 12, however there was a larger group that walked in before we did. The food was good, but rather pricey. My husband ordered a drink made with Kill Devils rum, but... More

I was really in the mood for a seafood dinner - broiled/seared but apparently that's hard to find in OBX for lunch. (And yes I am willing to pay dinner prices for seafood :) Oh well, I had the mini crab cakes from the app menu and they were very good. A crabcake lunch option with fries would have been... More

We stopped in the first day in Corolla. The table was sticky but the food overall was ok. My salad was not very good. I got the Caesar salad with shrimp. The dressing was a let down but the shrimp were good. We also like the soups and the flounder sandwich and seared tuna. Unfortunately we had a server in... More

Good dinner...cute decor. I had the Cesar salad and lobster bisque. My mom had the broiled shrimp dinner and my boyfriend had the ribs. We all enjoyed our dinners. Service was ok, we had to ask the waitress to clear the table before she dropped the check. Other than that, a good experience.
