Nice basic deli attached to a small hotel on the harbor. We ate looking out at fishing boats with the sound in the distance.

Large sandwiches served with delicious dill pickles and Zapp's chips. Quick service. Good value. Convenient for quick breakfast or lunch.

Thanks for the great review! It is a great pickle and what is a good sandwich if you have a bad pickle? Not on our watch!

Very casual. Order at counter. Small seating area. Probably a fair amount of take out. Good sandwiches, reasonable prices. Tries the tuna salad sandwich special (very good) and the shrimp burger (wanted it to be a little better). A good option in Hatteras Village.

Eaten here several times. Usually for lunch before or after a half day charter. Sandwiches are very good...a little pricey, but not objectionable. Friendly staff. Recommended.

There are seats on the open porch but no table tops. There are also picnic tables near the water. If the closed in porch (A/C) is empty Molly is welcome there as well.
