This is right outside the OuterBanks and an easy place to stop. I had the pulled pork sandwich and husband had the special of the day, which was Shrimp creole. Both were delicious.

I was really looking forward to eating here since the reviews were good. However, I was kind of disappointed. The food wasn't terrible, it just wasn't great either. The service and atmosphere were great though.
