“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

This restaurant is right on the beach in Surf City, NC. We recently ate there with friends and family. Service was good but not excellent. The crab cakes were good but again not excellent. Just not much flavor even though there was very little filler. Also is pretty expensive.

“Best on the island for carnivores and vegetarians alike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

I love this testaurant! We eat here at least once each time we vacation here. We're a large group, usually 10-12 of us. There's something for everyone on the menu. Shrimp & grits are a family favorite. I'm a vegetarian and love that they have a separate veg menu! Atmosphere is awesome-best looking restaurant. If you have to wait for a table that's ok, fun to walk out on the beach to kill time. Highly recommend.

“Great food, drinks and service!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

Between 6 of us we enjoyed the fried green tomato appatizer, mahi mahi, fish and chips, shrimp and grits and seafood combo platter. Everything we had was delicious and the drinks were perfectly made. Beautiful ocean front dining!
