The worst part of our night out was the excessive stairs to the dining area. Not an issue for most of us. Anyone who has mobility issues needs to be prepared for a workout. Other than that, it is perfect. With an awesome view, excellent service and tentative staff, our dining experience was excellent. The food was delicious. Everything tasted great. We had to take home leftovers. It is a good thing we had a fridge in our hotel!

As the other reviews have said it is in need of an update but what I didn't like was how crowded it seemed. Our food was great and the server we had was more than helpful as my teenagers could not make a decision! I felt the price we paid was fairly reasonable considering we had lobster and steak combos and sea bass.

We were very surprised. The food here is much better than the decor or building suggest. It could have been freshened up a bit.

The crab legs (a la carte order) and ribeye were really good. The crystal coast chowder was good, but not as good as some I've had (Capt Charlie's in Swansboro had really good chowder once upon a time, in its time). The restaurant is crowded and the bathrooms are not very nice. We were lucky to get close to the window and the view was awesome. One stand-out feature was that they took call-ahead seating. We called, were told 30 min. wait, got ready and drove there and went right to our table. Maybe it was just because it was raining like crazy, but it was NICE that they did that. Other servers seemed more tuned in than our waitress. We wondered if we were her only upstairs table? Would go LONG stretches w/o seeing her, but others helped us some in her absence... But the food was good and the view was good, so we'd definitely go back.
