From the street this restaurant would appear to be just your typical hotel bar and grille, my husband and I were sure surprised!! Upon walking in we were greeted by a very friendly waitstaff as well as friendly locals at the bar. We enjoyed our visit so much that we returned twice while on vacation. Staff was very attentive and our food was very good. On Thursday night there was entertainment and there was a huge dinner crowd. I was so impressed how the entire waitstaff, including the wonderful bartender worked as a team to insure that everyone was served promptly. Not many places will work together in this way. Don't be fooled by this little gem being in a hotel, this place has the best view on the beach. Can't wait to return....again and again.

Maybe lunch on the deck overlooking the ocean on a sunny day is better than dinner on a wet, windy night indoors. We found the atmostphere cheerless and cold with the grey slate floors, white walls and plain cafe furniture. The staff were very friendly (with the customers and each other) but were constantly fussing that they could not play music because the internet was "down". Not all customers need music, we certainly don't. The food was satisfactory but nothing special. My husband had the fried chicken special - three pieces of chicken, mashed poatatoes and gravy, carrots and a biscuit, followed by a small slice of plain cheesecake - for $10.95. He said it was OK. I ordered the tuna steak diinner. The tuna was dry, the yellow squash and zuccini were sauteed until they were soggy and greasy, the risotto contained small pieces of shrimp and was tasty, the tropical salsa was a nice touch. It was definitely not worth $18.95. The key lime pie was alright, but nothing to rave about. Probably the best part of my meal was the $4.00 glass of Reisling. We had read the reviews. We went with open minds. We will not be back for dinner. There are so many other places to eat on the OBX which have a warmer ambience and better food.

The food here was as good as anything/anywhere else we ate (including a very expensive dinner at Owens). Ask for the daily specials - they are special!

Wonderful food with affordable prices. The view is fantastic, and outdoor seating is literally on the oceanfront. All of the staff were very helpful and the food came out quickly and hot. The fish specials are very good, and the ceaser salad is one of my favorites !
