This place might be phenomenal - it's hard for to say. We drove down here from Kill Devil Hills because the ratings were so high. The wait was very long... about an hour. We sat down at some tables outside a short walk from the...More

Hey Ca A, thanks so much for having lunch with us and for recommending our place to the dining public. I am glad that we paid attention to your son's allergy. Cheers!

Really good seafood and service. The facility has a problem with "heat gain" due to the windows and the door which opens directly to the parking lot. Some heat and bugs are inevitable. We like to eat early - around 1630 - so no problem...More

Back in the corner of a shopping plaza. Never would have tried if not given a recommendation by a friend. Scallop salad was a special. Great lunch and one of the best salads I've ever had.

Our desserts are freshly baked daily. We don't always have the same offerings, however, the flourless cake often is offered. I can't guarantee it, but Ibcan guarantee what we have will be fresh. Cheers and bon appetit!
