Locals took us to eat here. Why? Because it is one of their "go-to" places! Not disappointed at all!

A group of friends & I were on a shopping trip to Nags Head & decided to try this restaurant for dinner....so sorry for the choice. Once our waitress took our order, it took between 45-50 minutes to get our food...a couple of us had flounder & quite frankly, I’ve had much better. One person said the crab soup was very good. After we had finished our meal, it took another 40 minutes to pay our bill....the service at this place was just plain horrible! Don’t think any of our group will return...it was totally inexcusable to treat guests like we were treated.

We have sampled she crab soup all over the OBX and this soup is head and shoulders above the rest...it is rich, delicious, full of crab, and so thick your spoon will stand up! All foods are delicious, especially the softshell crabs, and the salads are the freshest anywhere. Good wine and cocktails round out this wonderful dining experience.

We recently hosted our company Christmas party at Basnight's Lone Cedar, what a wonderful choice. We were given many options, and menu's to select from, all easy to read and plan with since we had a budget we wanted to stay within. The dishes were cooked to perfection, and the presentation was lovely. The portions were very generous too. We even had our own Christmas cake! There was always someone available if we needed anything. If you haven't tried this restaurant, or their catering, you're missing out!
