Continues to be one of our must do's when we come to the beach. Always unique choices that make it difficult to decide. Wait staff are attentive and know the menu well. Our special treat is to eat at the Chef's table where you can watch meals prepared.

We have always walked by this place leaving the beach or at night - and it's always busy! Seems like it's the place to be. When we came down for the wedding expo, we figured it would be a great time to try it out since it's off-season and not as busy. Plus, the food we had form Ocean Blvd at the expo was DELISH!

If you have money to spend, you won't be disappointed with dinner here. It truly was good - just more expensive than I would have liked - but I don't think it was over priced. We really appreciated that the chef came to check on us and the ambiance was really nice.

If there's wiggle room in your budget, go for it, you'll be happy you did!

This is our third visit in as many years. Each time has been similar: outstanding. The variety of the menu, combined with fabulous preparation and presentation make dining a wonderful experience. The service is attentive, efficient and friendly. AND who knew? A place that has a thoughtful and excellent wine selection--- especially Spanish! And the martinis were great as well! This is a "must dine" spot if you're close to Nags Head. We'll be back again next year!

We've had many meals out over the years we have been vacationing in the Outer Banks. Trying to find the right combination of good food & comfortable atmosphere for a good price is not easy. There are many places serving good beach food but often the atmosphere is too beachy for us. We look for places where we can get good food without being seated shoulder to shoulder with other diners and prefer to be away from the loud bar beach scene. We found the right combination here. Food was well prepared - creatively presented - ample portions - nice and varied wine list and great service - attentive but not pushy or hurried! Did I mention we had a great time. There's music (mellow) on the outdoor patio which was a great spot to finish the last of our bottle of wine.
Starter
Salmon cake served over greens and sauteed mushroms
Mains
Grilled tuna with a wasabi foam - rissoto cake - grilled shrimp & sauteed kale
Grilled swordfish with figs - quinoa - mussels & tomato

The dessert menu including a nice selection os after dinner drinks was tempting but we passed.
Can't. Wait till next year!

If you want to have the best experience in dining in the OBX that the spot, the only bad point is, your sitting on a bench park it's not the best way to appreciate the very good quality of the food. Service is excellent.
