This was our first time here. The view and overall ambiance are great. Our waitress provided efficient, pleasant service; but I did not enjoy my meal. I ordered the local grouper, which was supposed to be grilled. It came out sort of poached in a watery sauce, and I could not eat it. I shared the entree with my wife,... More

Very nice outdoor dining experience. Good American and seafood offerings. Delicious house cocktails with good wine selection. Local grouper with clams was good. Service was a bit scatter brained however they were friendly.

The Bread was the best thing on the menu. I had the half shell oysters, shrimp and grits appetizer and side salad made a full meal. Regular portions were enormous. All meals... More

Wonderful service, great food and atmosphereg. Can't beat sitting by the water, boats & sunshine. This was our second time meeting for lunch. Look forward to having lunch outside this fall.

I was a bit concerned when we walked in on a Friday...at 7PM and kind quiet. Wait staff was slow with that first beverage but otherwise attentive. I did feel a bit like I would have enjoyed more time to nibble vs course-to-course. Food was quite tasty though - would def come back.

We had a lovely meal and a relaxing time on the deck overlooking the Neuse River. A beautiful huckleberry mojito, filling and tasty shrimp and grits. Skip the tomato salad-- tomatoes are not good anywhere in the South this time of year. The service was friendly slow, but we were not in a hurry so it was no problem.

The food was awesome and the service was great. The best thing however was the view while sitting on the deck looking at the water. Great place.

Nice location, great views. Food first time was pretty good, second time most of us had hard time finding something we even wanted to try. Not for all tastes.
