Nice atmosphere and the molecules were playing nice together too, and don't get me started on those atoms but the quarks man, they are out of this world

This is the second time coming here, typically the last night on vacation. Get here early or you'll have to wait. We waited out at the Tap Shack while waiting for our table. The kids and adults had fun playing all of the outdoor games they had to offer. I wish the Tap Shack offered snacks or appetizers! We'll definitely... More

We had dinner here and loved it. Service was great and so was the food. We ate outside and totally enjoyed our dinner. Seafood was good and so were the rib apps. Do your self a favor on put this on your list of places to eat.

We ordered the takeout dinner for 15, while we only had 11, plenty of leftovers for lunch . We will make this a tradition. So easy and food was excellent. The ribs were melt in your mouth good and the boys loved the fried chicken.

Cravings should not be passed on. Excellent food, wine &a beer selection and service. The tap shack is a great addition for while you're waiting for a table, or live music after your meal.

They must have changed chefs since Guy visited... Just ok crab cakes and Carolina bbq. Nothing to write home about. Local beer flight was unimpressive. The best meal out of the 10 of us was the kids fried shrimp basket

Service was 8/10 and food was 6/10. Steak came well done when ordered medium rare. Mussels were not very flavorful and could have used a bit of a richer sauce for dipping bread. Hush puppies and crab cakes were highlights. Not bad, but have had much better in OBX.

Arrived at peak time, but lucky enough to sit outside next to a nice fan circulating the sea air. I enjoyed great seared scallops and delicious sauteed Mahi. My son ordered a perfectly cooked medium filet mignon while my other son went for a nice rendition of that old favorite - fish and chips. I highly recommend this place. Good... More

We had to sit outside in the 95 degree heat. The did have a fan blowing on the patio but all it did was blow hot air that smelled like garbage around. I had the scallops and they were alright, good flavors but were under done, could have been seared a little longer in the pan. My wife and kids... More

I've only ever had two sandwiches off their menu - my usual standby is the Brie LT, and is it ever yummy! Ciabatta bread, thick slices of bacon, Brie, and tomato make this almost a comfort food, lol! I went the other day and decided to try something new, so I went for the lobster roll. Now, I've only ever... More
