Went several times during our six week stay and had consistently good food. Scallops, lobster and virtually all the seafood we tried was great.

I ordered the snow crab legs, which I have to say I just had some awesome crab legs while in Myrtle Beach, and these were sorely lacking. They were cheaper by $3, must smaller and if I recall a leg or two were missing. So unimpressed. The bread they brought out was good. I can't recall what my husband ate,... More

We were visiting the Outer Banks, NC celebrating an 80th birthday as well as a 50th birthday and looking for a couple of nice places to have dinner during the week. This place had great atmosphere, food, drink and staff. A couple of us ordered the tuna steak which had a brown gravy with peppercorns which we weren't too crazy... More

We had 4 hungry little girls and this was the only restaurant that didn't have a wait (there's a reason for that). The seafood we had was mediocre. The mashed potatoes were hard and cold and the asparagus was awful. Our server didn't act like she wanted to be there either. We won't be going back.

The steak was dry, the tuna was dry and flavorless, mashed potatoes where dry and on top of all that the prices were way out of range with the quality of the restaurant. There was one pro: the calamari was excellent. In summary, skip this place.

Ambiance, decor, and location (next to a car wash/gas station) needs some help. The service was OK and the food equally so. No standouts but acceptable. Price OK but maybe slightly high for the experience.

We had a large group including 3 children. We were seated quickly. It was late and we had a hungry crew. The menus were passed out and he children struggled to find something they liked on the menus they were given. When the waitress came back for drink orders we asked if there were any children's menus. She replied that... More

Our first night here, 7:45, famished. Front desk at Hampton recommended and we called asking for table. They suggested 8:15 which was perfect. We were seated quickly and took several minutes to get service, but there were numerous large parties and servers were hopping. Once we placed our order the drinks and warm bread swiftly followed. Dinner was out within... More
