Good food and good server

Went with the family while staying in OBX. We had a four year old with us and they were very accommodating. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Some had steak, others had seafood. Bread with the olive oil was delicious.

Mike was our host during this Outer Banks Restaurant Tour stop. His "how I got here" stories were as engaging as his crab cake was delicious. Our party of 6 return visit 2 nights later is in the top 3 of our vacation high points. Our server was very knowledgeable and engaging, entrees (6 oz filet; local tuna, & Mike's... More

The food was absolutely the best. Atmosphere was warm and enjoyable and the service was excellent. Seemed a bit pricey, but when you get the delicious food and the atmosphere they offer, we didn't mind at all. If you are in Corolla or even nearby, you won't be disappointed with a visit to this restaurant. Our party felt it is... More

Expensive but a little above average food. We visited in late September and some items were not available on the menu. This restaurant bordered on fine dining. I had the flounder and it was very tasty but some members of our group did not like what they ordered. Make reservations. Phone number is 252-453-4336. We were there the third week... More

Stopped in without reservations and they had immediate seating. Very nice place. Staff was excellent and very helpful. Food was outstanding. We had the fresh catches for the day which were really really good. They're know for their steaks. Had the Kill Devil Cooler was tasty.

We stop to eat here every time we're in Corolla and have had delicious food every time. Service is also OUTSTANDING. Yep, the bill was up there, but we knew going in that two of us weren't leaving without ordering the filet. And, you can't pass up their made from scratch desserts! One of us is vegetarian and tried the... More

My friend and I got on Mike at least 2 times a week. Everything from the menu is made fresh and from scratch. So far I tried almost everything from the menu and not one single thing was bad. Hospitality is on a high level. They definitely get very busy for dinner but no worries there is a beautiful bar... More
