“Surprised by this shack!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

What appears to be a local beer joint serves some of the most creative delicious dishes you are going to eat here in the Outer Banks. The crab based soup was thick and flavorful and the salad dishes were top notch....Try it ...also has live music outdoors

Had lunch with family on a work day. The Fried Green tomato BLT was awesome. I will go back for that again.

“Great vibe, good seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

Greater surfer theme and low key vibe. The bonzer shrimp appetizer $8.99 was amazing comes with a skewer of bbq shrimp on a bed of gouda grits. Who knew grits could taste so good!
The boneyard entree $15.99 comes with shrimp, sausage and crab over a jambalaya type rice with lots of flavor. For dessert the coconut cake was delicious. Nice selection of beer and cocktails. Recommend the shack tea cocktail.

Enjoyed a great meal while visiting OBX. The food was fresh and prepared perfectly. The service was friendly and efficient. This is a great spot for groups. Really enjoyed the outdoor area too.
