We came here on a Friday night and was seated quickly. I like how it looks like your in a boat. The service was excellent. The food was excellent but the portions were kind of in the small side but prices were a bit expensive...More

My stuffed flounder was good. My wife's fish and chips was awfully heavy on the batter. It was kind of greasy. Wait staff friendly.

This is one of our family favorites. The prime rib is truly a piece of prime rib, and my Skullys Dirty Pasta is always good!! I️ highly recommend coming here if you are in the area!

My new favorite place to eat in Surf City. Great wings and even better blackened chicken salads ! Sides are also good. I don't eat seafood but I hear it's wonderful.

Always stop there on our annual Topsail visit. Almost go there on Fri or Sat to have the Prime Rib. Very friendly & good Waitress (Jessica). Food is very good & a healthy size portion. Shrimp & chips, just OK. Wines a little pricey.
