Stopped by for lunch after a day at the beach and Cape Hatteras lighthouse. Had a variety of lunch items and tasty iced tea. Service was good and prices competitive/reasonable. Server even gave us to-go cups for our iced tea. Would visit again.

No atmosphere. I walked up to almost empty restaurant. I wanted to sit at the bar but it was covered with bits of food from earlier patrons. So I had to ask for it to be wiped. The bar dude was stoned and didn't seem...More

The restaurant isn't so bad, and location was alright. Food was okay. Understandable for the area, and island life.

Visited with group of twelve after climbing the Hatteras Lighthouse. Decent service and good food. Satisfying enough for lunch. Several had good burgers. I had a really good shrimp wrap.

We had lunch there after visiting he Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. Two of us had the crab cake sliders, they were excellent. Everyone enjoyed the food. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. It wasn't super busy, but all the tables were filled.

The food quality has been declining for the past few years. The quality of food is only OK, not worth the prices they charge. Not our first option on the island.

Nice clean place, lovely waitress, the menu has typical eggs etc breakfasts and several unusual offerings. I had the crab cake Benedict. The crab cakes are house made and it was fantastic. I would give it 5 stars except it could have been warmer.
