Went to this restaurant when they opened and was not impressed. The food has improved dramatically. The service is good and friendly the prices are average and the selection is almost overwhelming.

Who would have thought one could find excellent lobsta rolls outside and quite a ways from Maine? We did! While they don't offer the lobster rolls with drawn butter as they do at so many Maine restaurants, the use of mayonnaise was spare and didn't cover up the delectable lobster. The lobster rolls with cole slaw and french fries was... More

What could be better than a tasty lunch, quick service and welcoming staff...that's what we got when my husband and I stopped in for lunch. I had a yummy Grilled Marinated Chicken Breast Sandwich and my husband had Maine Whole Belly Fried Clams Basket...delicious!!! Since our last visit, they are now open Sundays from 11-3pm.

This is a great hot dog diner, that also has a lot of other choices. They have a large selection of fried seafood baskets and sandwiches. Nothing fancy, but the food comes fast and is delicious. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. This is where the working locals go to get a great lunch.

We decided to try this little restaurant because they advertise "the best seafood" in the area. My husband ordered the oyster platter and I did a split combo of scallops and shrimp. They only offer FRIED seafood, BTW, with French fries and slaw for sides. Hubby made out pretty good, he got 8 nice sized oysters that were perfectly cooked.... More

Popular with locals who want good basic food that is affordable and served with a smile. Hot dogs are tasty and less than $3. Menu varies from soups and sandwiches to seafood specials. Sides are good, especially the fries. We go whenever we want something light and quick, which is often.

My husband and I stopped in for lunch. We both had Lobster Rolls that came with coleslaw and I had zucchini fries and my husband had French fries. The Lobster Rolls had big chunks of lobster...yum!!!! We arrived before noon and even when the noon rush came, the line moved quickly. Their menu is quite extensive with 10 kinds of... More

I've eaten here three times now, and I always have the fried shrimp. It's delicious! The hand cut fries and homemade cole slaw are excellent as well. If you like sea food, you won't want to miss this place. I have also tried a hot dog which was great too. The decor and the curb appeal need some work, but... More

I am from Boston and was thrilled to find this place in NC. Awesome clam chowder! The owner is so friendly. The menu is varied. You can have anything from dogs to burgers to seafood. Even lobster rolls. A great find!

We have eaten here several times and the food is great. This time it was the lobster stew and shrimp Po-boy. Both were fresh and well prepared. We'll be back again.
