A group of 4 of us went here for lunch. The food was good and could become pricey. None of us did alcohol but it looks to have a wide selection.

My wife and I ate lunch here, Heard good things. I had a Philly Cheesesteak and it was just Ok. No real complaints just nothing jumped out as us to come back. Waitress was friendly and attentive. My son and his wife had dinner here earlier in the year and enjoyed the sunset during their meal. No complaints from them.

Wonderful meal, great service. Appetizers and entree's were delicious! A little loud inside at the 6 o'clock hour. Sat outside with our drinks until dinner was ready. The view of the sound at sunset is amazing!!! A definite stop for your Rodanthe, Waves or a Salvo trip!

The hostess with def not the mostest, told us there would be an hour wait and we MUST stay in the immediate area. I asked if we could go shop in the attached stores and come back in 30 min. she said that's fine but you'll be removed from the list. I suggested taking down our cell phone number. NOPE!... More

Took the family on the last Sunday of August 2015...Food and Service were great. Kids devoured their meals and the fresh Wanchese Scallops were the best I have had in the OBX. Sounds like from other reviews we hit it at the right time (off peak). Sat on the back deck and enjoyed the Pamlico Sound. Kids went down and... More

We shopped at the kite store during the day. I asked an employee if she would recommend the restaurant upstairs. She told me that she definitely would. We were renting a house across the street and walked over for dinner. It is a very small restaurant. We were quoted a 45 minutes wait for the 4 of us to be... More

Very nice restaurant with a fantastic view of the sound off the back deck (can have a drink on the back deck while waiting for table). A party of 9, we were seated in around 30 minutes during busy dinner hour on Friday evening. Food was very good, service was very good. We will return the next time we visit... More

Took a little while to find the entrance - it's upstairs and around back - but glad we did. Menu was interesting, service outstanding and the food was delicious. Great view of the sound too. Plan to go back next trip.
