The ambience of this restaurant was so warm and inviting. The view of the water was so pretty even though it was raining that night. Our server Bailey was walking back and forth non-stop always checking to see if we needed anything. Lovely young lady. The food selection was stellar. Our dinner meals were simply divine. Sarah from Roanoke Island Inn recommended this restaurant to us for dinner and we were so glad she did. We even ended up buying a couple of paintings from the the restaurant that were hanging on the walls. Beautiful portraits of the lighthouses. Thank you for a very nice dinner and dining experience!

Everything was perfect. Party of 7 with three adults and 4 children, everyone was very satisfied! Good live music on the deck, very good service.

Our party of 7 all enjoyed their meals. Kids meal had probably the best/ freshest popcorn shrimp. Best crab cakes I have ever eaten! No fillers...all crab meat. One person had chicken and ribs and said excellent as well. Will be back on our next trip.

We had to wait a bit but it was well worth it. Hearty portions, so share a meal or bring some home for the next days lunch. The seafood was outstanding. I recommend the Tile Fish if its on the menu. Great for couples or families.

We had a group of 8 and they seated us in Dining Room A. There were lots of great windows that overlook the sound, but we were in the inside corner, which you would think would be great for noise reduction, but it wasn't. We had an excellent meal, but could not hear each other talk. I could barely hear the person next to me. If you go, make sure to have them seat you in another part of the restaurant, so you can enjoy the meal and the company. Seafood was amazing - I had the broiled combination seafood platter with shrimp, scallops, crab cakes and flounder with the string beans and whipped sweat potatoes. I sampled my daughter's coconut shrimp and they were excellent too.
