What a great place to eat! Took a group of 8 and we all had different items off the menu and everyone was pleased and filled! The service was extraordinary and I know my group will be going back. NB: it is a smaller place so come early or be patient, but it would be worth the wait!

Awesome food. Great service. Even thoughv we were only in OBX for a few days we came back here twice as the food was so good. That had a tomatoe basil clam bisque as a soup of the day which was hearty and delighted my taste buds! The interior is cosily rustic with local art on display. A good selection... More

We are here tonight based on Yelp and Tripadvisor reviews. This place did not disappoint! First, we are from the Jersey Shore so we totally appreciated the ambiance of this place- like being in our shore town! The waitress was super friendly, the beer was great, and our food was so good! I had the special crab cake salad with... More

Eight of us went for dinner and were happy with the food, service and value. The seafood choices were great but other options are available as well and more than satisfactory.

Had blackened shrimp tacos and the prime rib quesadillas. The blackened shrimp tacos were served piping hot and were well seasoned. The pineapple and mango in there were really good. The quesadillas were not quite hot (temp) enough but was a little bland - needed salt and that would have helped...they were good. Both dishes were served with a rice,... More

I ordered cup of clam bisque and the special of the day, which consisted of fried flounder (very fresh) with coleslaw and fries. My husband ordered mahi-mahi panko entree. Food came out quick and service was attentive. I had dinners at: - Blue Moon Grill - long line, good service, best fish and chips. Hit or miss on special of... More

Limited seating but great menu (avg. $10 for wraps, salad, burgers of many fish and flavors!)... Near public beach access, just across the road near mile marker 8... Healthy lunch choice!

I had fish tacos made with fresh mahi mahi and their delicious house made slaw. You just don't find truly fresh food at reasonable prices like this. Small hidden gem on Beach Rd.
