What a fun place! Came after dinner for a couple of beers. Great bartenders, fun crowd and the beer selection was terrific. There is no liquor at all, but the atmosphere was simply amazing.

While staying in Corolla OBX had the opportunity to stop in here for a drink. The group I was with and I loved this place. Calling it an outdoor beer garden does not do it justice. It's like you are walking into a friends backyard...More
