We needed a place to get away from the kids for a few hours. The pizzas are awesome and the bartenders do a great job at getting you your drinks fast.

We were looking for a place that offered grilled cheese on the kid's menu for one of our picky sons. We found the menu online and went in for that reason. We were greatly surprised at the quality of everything we ate. The menu was large and there were a lot of different choices. The food was hot and good.... More

We visited on a weeknight and got a table right away. Service was great. It's a casual place, perfect for a fun dinner after a day at the beach. They have an extensive drink menu. The food was good. 3 of us had sandwiches. One person had a seafood dinner. We enjoyed dining here!

Ate lunch here with my son after a morning fishing trip. This place has the feel of a local, hometown corner tavern. Friendly people, lots of TVs, cold beer, and excellent food. Highly recommended!!

A favorite local place with wonderful food! Signature drinks were delicious. Specials were reasonable, and expertly prepared. They are family friendly, also. You won't be disappointed.

It was very busy when we went to eat dinner. We actually had to park in the grass out front. Even though it was busy we were quickly seated and received our food fast. My husband LOVED the nagsmess monster burger! He said it is one of the best burgers he has ever had.

Just found this place right before we left. It is phenomenal. We ate all over Nags Head this week and this was the best. Blackened Mahi, crab bites, shrimp, even pizza. Wish we had found it earlier. You will not be sorry you came here.
