We came here because of the positive reviews in TripAdvisor and we are so happy we did. The food was excellent, service was friendly and efficient, and the drinks we too notch. The piña colada was one of the best I've had and the Sour Apple Rita, the drink special, was a fun twist on an old favorite. The fish tacos were the best I've ever eaten and the jerk chicken tacos were a hit as well. One review said the portions were 'ok' however all entrees at our table had more food than we could eat. The kids' meals were very generous as well. We dined a little before the average dinner hour and our timing was perfect. We were seated immediately and when we left the place was packed.

We arrived right as lunch was starting so we (party of 10) were seated quickly. The place is small, but ecelictic, vibrant, and clean. The menu had a nice variety of non-typical fare and was cooked to order. The kids menu (again) was cookie cutter, but the popcorn shrimp was so fresh I found myself snacking off of my kid's plate. The wait staff was quick and friendly.

The only opportunity I found here was with the restroom. It was clean, but in need of an update. The inside of the restaurant is so hip and colorful. It would be cool to see the same in the restrooms.

Read another review that said dirty n bugs and I go there all the time and never seen bugs and its really clean, they have a awesome sanitation grade. I've never ate anything from there that wasn't good. Serice can be slow in season but thats EVERYWHERE at the beach in the summer. Excellent fish tocos, best ive EVER ate and ive ate them at many places.

Went here our first night in OBX. It was a short wait for excellent food. We had fish tacos, shrimp and tuna, all of which were wonderful. The service was good and everyone had a good time. I'd definitely go back.
