“Excellent place for small bites and drinks”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We went to Ocean Boulevard for Taste of the Beach in March. We had three small plates plus a drink for $20.00 each. Worth every cent. This is a pricey restaurant for dinner, but has a great ocean view and excellent service. I would suggest going in for a cocktail and small plates to enjoy the atmosphere without spending a fortune.

“Don't Miss!”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

This was definitely a splurge, but worth every penny. Every course is imaginatively prepared and presented. Fish couldn't be more fresh. Service was attentive and helpful. The space is definitely a step up from beach casual yet comfortably welcoming. Be sure the include this one in your list of restaurants to try when you're on the Outer Banks.

“An excellent meal this time”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

My wife and I had an excellent meal this visit. The scallop entree was like butter and the flounder special was very good. One point about the cooking here is that they seem to want to make their sauses have a bit of tangey spice. The deserts, one creme brulle and a pecan tart ice cream sandwich were also excellent. The wine seemed a bit pricey, but overall we will go again and will recommend the restaurant to others.

The food is absolutely incredible. The atmosphere is very nice. Though the menu is exceptionally pricey, it is worth the trip for special occasions.
