I am glad I did not read the reviews before we went. We took the ferry from Ocracoke to see Cape Lookout lighthouse and had time before our return. 2 local people told us to eat there - they said the seafood was good and local. We followed their advice and were happy. What everyone says about the decor is true - it is run down. But the staff is very friendly and the food is really good. I had 1/2 lb of boiled shrimp (only about 10, they were huge!)that were wonderfully seasoned. Baked potato and fried ocra were good. Husband had fish, crabccake and shrimp (all fried) and it was good. The crabccake had big lumps of crab in it and was very good (I tasted!) Son had chicken planks and fries (crispy and plenty) and he was very pleased with his meal as well. One of the best things about the meal were fried bread/hushpuppies brought to the table after we ordered. They were hot, served with soft/melted butter and were amazing. We asked for another basket before the meal was done. I had a glass of wine and hubby had iced tea but the whole bill was still around $50 for the three of us- far less than anything we have experienced so far in outer banks dining. Get past the 70's beachside theme and enjoy the people and the food.
