I stumbled across Scratch and I'm so glad that I had lunch there. The food was so fresh and healthy, the staff was so friendly. It can be challenging to find healthy food when traveling so I really enjoyed Scratch! I highly recommend!

My wife loves this place. Over near the wharf and in a good location. It's good Carolina bbq and really good desserts. Worth your time.
