We stopped on our way to OBX trip and enjoyed a quick and tasty lunch. Family run with homemade goods. We split a piece of pie that was very tasty

A dozen folks dropping in all at once and unexpected and we were handled as if we had been planed for all along. The restaurant is several blocks off of US 64, but easy enough to find. Family owned and operated, but nothing common about the service and menu. I'll plan on making this a regular stop now that I've... More

The staff was very friendly and told us a little about the area after we ate. The restaurant was right on Main Street and a great view. We stopped in to grab a quick lunch before getting on the Swan Quarter Ferry to Ocracoke.

We dropped in hot and bedraggled from the time we'd spent outdoors walking around the Bear Fest - and we felt very welcome. They helped us settle in (3 kids and 5 adults) and promptly took our orders and kept the water coming. They have a great menu with many selections. Everyone was pleased with their food. We didn't make... More

The food was excellent, cooked well and very enjoyable. The shrimp was cooked perfectly! I have been a few times and their salads are very good also, nice crisp vegetables and homemade dressing.

This place was a gem. The service was good. I had the pork chop and it did not disappoint. They were busy, but I saw they take reservations. I would call ahead.

This was recommended by our hotel receptionist. It was a good local choice, down by the river section of town. We had a quite, relaxing dinner after a long day.

I travel a lot between Raleigh and the Outer Banks. Until recently, I ate fast food. But, dieting forced me to look for something healthier. I finally found it at this restaurant. I had an amazing Shrimp Louie salad - Lemon pepper shrimp served on a bed of greens. Very good value; the dish cost $8.95. The greens were a... More

Mack, from the Sportsman's Inn recommended we try the Garden Spot - and it was just as he promised: good food, cheery atmosphere, and even the other customers were friendly - they commented that anything we tried would be good. That's a great commentary on any eating establishment!
