We went for lunch to enjoy the buffet. For some reason, I wasn't led to get a salad. I soon learned why. A man came from the back with an apron on and a green fly swatter in his hand. He went to the salad bar, stood a bit and then started swatting flies!!!Wham!Bam!He was hitting the bin covers and... More

just passing through and saw that the parking lot was packed. good sign food must be good. They have a terrific seafood buffet special on Fridays. The waitress was so nice. She happened to be from our home state, so we had a nice chat. The food was good and reasonably priced.

I typically come in on Sundays with my family. It really is one of the high points of our weekend together. We absolutely love the food. The last few times we came a young lady named Morgan has waited on us. She is amazing. She is attentive to my wife and I and pays special attention to my grand kids;... More

We really enjoyed it here. Food was good and the service was excellent. The only thing I can complain about is the bar was very limited. We would definitely go back. Someone in our party has to eat gluten free and they were very accommodating.

I dined with a group for a retirement luncheon. The buffet wasn't fully stocked so many of us had to wait for the kitchen to catch up. The food was good once we finally got it.

We left the Outer Banks and needed to stop for lunch. This place surprised me, the scallops were grilled just right and the service was top notch. I recommend the Hitching Post to anyone.

Used to be the best place to eat until tonight. We ate there at least twice a week driving from plymouth. There were 4 of us in our party tonight and 3 out of the four plates was wrong. I ordered a hamburger with lettuce,tomatoe and bacon and did not order chilly but got it on my hamburger! My friend... More
