Had lemon basil martini and the crabcakes with rataouti (SP?) anyway it was awesome! The Ocracoke clam chowder is the best on the island. Had breakfast there too, mine was ok. My husband loved his omelette.

We had brunch. Excellent service. Beautiful inside. Not too expensive. Will definitely go back. It was just off the main road and very clean. It felt almost like a bead and breakfast but we ate alone (which we like).

This place was recommended and we both enjoyed. I had vegetarian ravioli, delish!! The only thing we didn't like is our seat was between two other couple tables, and we were soooo close it was uncomfortable for all.

My wife and I enjoyed a very nice dinner at a very reasonable price by Ocracoke standards. Two entrees, appetizer, dessert, and drinks just over $80 before tip. Some of the other places we visited really slam you with the "Ferry" tax.

The interior of this restaurant contains art, juniper wood and tastefully decorated dining alcoves.
The service was prompt, the wait staff well informed about the menu. The menu was upscale seafood, not the Calabash fried plates available at most seafood restaurants on the Outer Banks. The salad of microgreens was delicious, and the baked-on-premises rolls were irresistible. The desert menu is not to be missed. Save room. Pricey but worth it.
