Looking for lunch today in Corolla but they are CLOSED For Business. Locals were aware but we saw many travelers like us stopping and pulling on the front door.

Don't waste your time. The seafood was awful worst seafood I have ever eaten. Potatoes were cold. Only 2 waiters all night who were unprofessional.

After reading other reviews I took a chance on Route 12. I should have listened to what others said and went elsewhere. The food was average and overpriced. Ordered shrimp stuffed with crabmeat. The crabmeat was mushy. The mashed potatoes and bread were good but...More

Went several times during our six week stay and had consistently good food. Scallops, lobster and virtually all the seafood we tried was great.
