“Charming with wonderful food”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

This was right across the street from Sanderling Resort where we were staying so super convenient. Excellent service. Very extensive menu with numerous black board specials. Flavourful and excellent local choices. Stuffed shrimp, swordfish were standouts. Great location on the water (a newborn fawn was out the back when we arrived) and very quaint interior. Well worth a visit.

Reviewed October 13, 2013

We felt welcome by both the staff and fellow diners. The bar area offers great views of the sound. The food is fresh and nicely seasoned. The staff is helpful and friendly.

“What a Shame!”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

We have eaten at this restaurant many times on our trips to OBX. Maybe it was a bad night, I don't know, but the food was terrible and expensive.

We both had the specials - duck and scallops. The scallops were cooked properly, but in some strange butter sauce and served with risotto. When we inquired as to the nature of the "glob" we were told the chef had made it earlier in the day. OH! That's the problem! Beans were over cooked, etc. for $34 per plate, I can't afford this type of mistake!
