Depending on your appetite, this place will either be very tasty or disgusting. The food is definitely on the side of unhealthy, but if you want some really tasty hush puppies this is the place for you. It certainly wasn't the best meal of the week in OBX, but it was good enough. The service was very good, with very... More

Went here for lunch. Staff was courteous and prompt. Restaurant was clean and neat. Has bar seating and table seating. Beer is available. We chose to sit at table near front to get a great view of the ocean. We ordered a Taco salad and a Clam strip basket with fries and hushpuppies. Food was great. Served quickly and hot.... More

Three of us waited 20 minutes for a waitress to appear at our table. Didn't happen so one of us went to the bar and ordered there. My flounder sandwich was definitely not flounder and was pretty awful. A disappointment at $11 for lunch. Fries were good though. Other meals in our party okay but service was terrible. Just come...

Single piece of lettuce, small piece of tomato and 2 pieces of bacon. Saddest sandwich I ever had! Good fries. Spoke to manager and they discounted it from the bill. A lot different from our previous visits earlier this year.

We've been coming here for breakfast longer than I want to remember for breakfast and it's always fantastic. The pancakes are the best and so is the EM special. The view, you right there looking at the ocean. The ladies that make up the wait staff are the best. Several have been there for a long time so the place... More

We were told about this spot by another couple at our hotel and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is on the pier right over the waves, the views are great!! Best part of the place, 15 cent peel and eat shrimp every night during happy hour, which I believe was from 4-6pm. They also had some live music the... More

Great place to sit down, have a good lunch and a spectacular view of the.ocean and surf. Add a large waves from hurricane Mathew and excitement level is there. Stop in, walk the pier, have a great meal and build some memories. We have.

First, understand that this is not an upscale restaurant by any stretch of the word. It is clean, but very basic and is adjacent to the fishing equipment/ bait counter at the head of the pier. But it is on the beach, the service is prompt and friendly and the food is good and reasonably priced for seafood in the... More
