Dinner was just okay. We ate at the Owl last year and had one of the best dinners we ha on the "forgotten coast". This year - just okay - not bad, not great. We had the blue crab dip appetizer - too much spice overwhelmed the crab. Fried oysters were heavy with oil. Just the wrong season - Owl's key to continued success is consistency. We will be back and hopefully it will be better.

Better than expected meal in Appalach, decent service, about as we expected. Seafood was limited which was surprising.

The food was great. We sat on the outside deck and had a great view of the water and town. I got a meat lasagna and the hubby got a penne pasta. The ingredients used in the food were fresh and yummy.

Always fresh and wonderfully prepared seafood emphasis on local delicacies . Have been there every weekend this fall , a little pricey but one of those places that is truly worth it!

We ate dinner here. The dining room is upstairs and while it doesn't have a great view, it does have lots of windows for light. The service was attentive. Food was okay, but not spectacular. Shrimp and veggies were overcooked, but still had a good flavor. Decent wine menu at good prices.
