I gave this review four stars, based on the beautiful setting, right on the sound. It (almost) makes up for the hit or miss food. We eat here every year when we visit the Outer Banks, because my son loves it. I have had meals that were quite good, and others that missed the mark. They definitely have a tendency to overcook the seafood and don't seem to season things properly (as in, they basically don't). On the plus side, the servers are very friendly and helpful. This restaurant is very popular, so who knows, maybe it's just that the food isn't to my own, personal taste. It's definitely not bad, and it's priced comparably to other restaurants in the area. And as I noted, the view is AMAZIMG!
