“Great Place, Great View”
Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

Ask to sit upstairs or on the new deck outside. Drinks were a bit light, even asking for a bit stronger! Food was good. In the past the menus was larger, now it has the typical beach place food. Burger, tuna, grits and beer. But the quality was good and tasty.

“Nice atmosphere and outside dining on the pier.”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Have been coming here for years and the food is consistently good. Had not been recently since they renovated. The new pier renovations for dining have increased their seating capacity considerably, so hopefully that will also decrease wait times. Highly recommend call ahead seating, so you don't have to wait. Pier dining was nice, but the negative side is the wind/temp will warm your beer / wine and cool your food quickly!
The Pier salad with addition of catch of the day is my favorite. Last visit we had shrimp and grits which was very good ( grits were more of a cornbread type consistency) and a little different, but I would order again. Seafood Paella was a disappointment- extremely salty and the lobster was rubbery- shrimp on it was good. My fault I didn't complain as I'm sure they would have remedied the meal. This is the only negative experience with the food I've ever had.
Good place to go for a special occasion-recommend requesting the 2nd floor, closest to the pier side. Beautiful evening views from there. If a romantic dining experience is desired, go later like 8pm so families with smaller children will have likely dined earlier in the evening and the restaurant will be quieter.

“Awesome seafood!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

This is the second time we've been here, and the renovations are very nice. Upon arrival, we were waiting nearly 10 minutes. A waiter asked if we had been helped, and I said no. He immediately took our order, even though he was not our waiter. The manager later came over to personally apologize and said our Caprese salad appetizer was on the house. Kudos! The food was delicious and we had a great view of the ocean from the outside deck. Great experience and very accomodating.

“great location, nice folks, modest food”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Sat outside on the deck overlooking beautiful atlantic and surfers galore. Staff likes to sell, but once we ordered, they brought it fast and were very courteous. Ok brunch menu and food, but really great view and very nice folks. Omelettes were warm but not hot, potatoes were just cooked and not much flavor, but good little blueberry muffins and hush puppies. Everyone was nice and it was a beautiful morning in NC!! Worth a trip if only for the location.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

The view doesn't get any better! She crab soup was phenomenal. Stuffed flounder & mixed grill was good. Dessert was extremely good as well. Good friendly service as well. I'd give the overall rating as an A-. I've had better seafood, but not often.
