I was glad to leave this restaurant. The atmosphere says casual but the menu is someone trying to be on Top Chef. I had the worst chicken salad ever. The others at my table were a bit confused at the pairings of meat and vegetables...More

Our family has made it a tradition to visit and partake of the food and drinks (great cold beer and hot toddy) in the rear yard during the Thanksgiving holiday. This is always a "happening" with live music and roasted oysters along with pub games....More

This place is a small gem with a great beachy vibe. We loved everything about it. The atmosphere was casual, the staff friendly and attentive, the food amazing. We can't wait to go back and try more of the menu.

Eclectic decor inside masked by a beachy exterior. My wife and I enjoyed some appetizers and a drink. Service is friendly and attentive. Clam chowder was very tasty with generous portion. Shimp and grits where delicious. My wife enjoyed a pear/goat cheese salad. Will return.

Decided to check this place out just because we could. Food was delicious and the staff was great. The real gem for us was the backyard bar they have behind. It's welcoming and quirky. It's decorated with all sorts of recycled things . A great...More

We have eaten at this restaurant at least once on each of our visits to the Outer Banks and it has never disappointed our expectations to even the slightest degree. This year we took 4 friends with us for dinner and, as usual, all loved...More
