We actually live in the town where this restaurant is. It recently switched owners and despite the fact we were sad to see Bobby go we have been very pleased with the changes that have been made. This restaurant is still family owned and operated. The chef is the son of the family and the father (Leon) is always present... More

Our waiter, Quinn, was professional and friendly, the food (mahi special, tuna wrap, and desserts) was perfectly seasoned and prepared, and we left knowing we'd return when we get... More

I have been several times. I think their food is so-so. It's never been GREAT. The last time I went my slice of medium "slow roasted prime rib" was wayyy over cooked and had been pan fried to boot. It was not a very good cut of meat. I only go there cuz my bf likes their shrimp salad, and... More

Loved the light and spacious dining area. Fresh herbs for the rockfish, flavorful jasmine rice and asparagus- and smaller portions available, which is great for a late dinner. Wish they would open another restaurant near me! Makes me want to visit Elizabeth City again!!

This was the first time any of us had dined here since Bobby sold the place. We had heard good things of the new chef that came in and made some menu changes. The décor hasn't changed... More
