We have rented over 22 homes over the past 18 years on the OuterBanks. We realize during the summer there will be a wait if you dine out, so the meal has to be worth the wait! I would have waited an hour for the service and quality of food that we received. I recommend getting there before 4:45 if... More

Stopped in for some oysters today. They were delicious and super fresh. The bartender was super knowledgable about the area. Brought my father in a wheelchair, very accessible. Great experience. Would recommend a stop for a few cocktails and some quick bites.

Had a great time. The bloodies were out of this world, the atmosphere and staff were great. Do not forget to try the crab cakes, oh boy! Try them.

We arrived for dinner about 6, figuring a hour long wait. Pleasant surprise, we were immediately seated! Bartender knows his trade very well, making a perfect Grey Goose dirty martini for me. Dinner was awesome, consisting of local seafood. We both really enjoyed our dinner experience and didn't feel rushed at all. Very highly recommend!

We stopped for lunch while waiting for our rental house to be ready and had a fantastic meal. They have a great selection of beers, and the waiters suggestion was spot on when they were out of what my husband originally ordered. The fish tacos were very good, with lots of fresh fish, and the flat bread with Weeping Radish-made... More

This place was recommended as the place locals go for fish, whether cooked or raw. Great menu, both creative and traditional! Excellent food! Friendly atmosphere. Be prepared to wait, it's worth the wait though.

We really enjoyed this restaurant! The crab cakes were delicious; full of crab. The seafood pasta was also excellent. Our children loved the fried fish and fried shrimp; the portions were huge. The service was outstanding. We'll be returning to this restaurant soon!

One of the better restaurants in Corolla. Good food. We had the seafood pasta and crab cakes that were very good. Key Lime Pie was also excellent and high recommended. Enjoy!
