This was one of our favorite restaurants ever!! The food was absolutely scrumptious. We especially liked the smashed red-skinned potatoes. The rest of the meal was very well presented, flavorful, and done to perfection. I normally don't take a doggie bag, but I sure did with this place. You have to make this a stop while you're visiting the Outer... More

This is one of our favorite places to eat at the beach and this was not a disappointment. The service is great and the food is wonderful. We had enough left over for another meal when we got back to Virginia.

This place is wonderful. The atmosphere is very nice. If your looking for a great steak or fantastic ribs, this is the place to go. We went to celebrate an adult birthday. Although kid friendly, it is a bit pricey for a family meal. Since we were looking for something special and price was not a factor, thought we would... More

Hands down the best steak on the OBX. I'm a local, and always go there when I want a steak. My husband loves the ribs too. Nice atmosphere, and great staff! A local fav for sure. A must try if you want great steak!

We had a great dinner here! From our server, Summer, all the way to the desserts, everything was fantastic! Summer was so nice, gave great recommendations, very attentive and personable. We will request her when we return. We split the Caesar Salad to start, which was good. They are generous portions. The Veal Chop with Blue Cheese Butter was delicious... More

Everything about this restaurant was amazing. The food is the BEST I have had in a very long time. My son had the shrimp skewers and I had the rib and chicken plate. Both were phenomenal and we didn't leave hungry. The price is not bad versus every other restaurant in the Outer Banks. Awesome staff. Just go. You won't... More
