I went to the brewing station a lot during my stay in OBX. The beer was great especially the Lemongrass Wheat Ale. The food was pricey but delicious. When I say pricey I mean as a single traveler I never spent less than $30 for food and beer. A lot of that tab was beer to be fair; it's easy to run up a bill when one beer costs $6. A party of two or more could easily spend $100 to eat and drink.
The Shecrab soup was the best I had on the OBX. The locally sourced bratwurst plate, was good however I liked the soup so much I came in again for dinner on another night. While the kitchen was about to close they were kind enough to accommodate my order. While the food was still delicious, it was served lukewarm and in a rush. It was my fault for showing up late so I cannot fault them for that.
The service was hit and miss. My first experience was lackluster at the bar. The only bartender working was at the farthest end of the bar away from the customers with his back turned playing on his phone. A server rolling silverware saw me sitting there unattended for a while, along with other customers with empty beers, and others waiting to place orders and was kind enough to alert the bartender to pay attention to the customers at the bar. He turned around and seemed surprised there were people waiting on him. When I went back on successive occasions all the other bartenders were prompt in acknowledging me and taking my order.
There is outdoor seating that has cornhole and a play ground for kids.
Overall, a great place for food and drink but hefty on the prices with spotty service by bartenders. Worth a swing through though.
