“Local seafood”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Was there for the first time and had the clams with the garlic wine sauce and it was delicious. I then tried their tropical salad and it had fresh fruit and the filet was cooked exactly as ordered. The service, food, and views are great.

“Hidden treasure between Oak Island and Southport!”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

Visited a new place (new for us) tonight. What a find! Food was great. Staff was friendly and very accommodating. Server checked with chef regarding raw eggs in several items and came back promptly with info. A bit pricey but was worth it since there was no wait for a table of six. This is definitely a place we will visit again and again. Also the views of the ICW from our table was spectacular. Only thing I would change would be to offer milk as a drink on the kids menu. Otherwise everything was perfect!!!

Had a pound of peel and eats. They were fresh, plump, and juicy! Great view of the ICW from the deck!
