Casual dining with the family. I had the blackened Mahi and it was superb. Every member had positive compliments about their meal. Good service no cold brew. Enough said!

Great drinks, Sunset view, Great food. The appetizers are definitely a great start to whatever you choose to have for dinner. Great Service and overall vibe.

We were there off season so I am not sure if that is why our food was awful. The waiter even noticed we did not eat our food and he did not say a word. We will not go back!

Visited on September 9. I had the Shrimp dinner and it was just average. Wife's Jamican Jerk Chicken was terrible. Service was OK

The wait staff was very good. The bright spot in the meal. My jerk pasta was beige pasta, beige sauce, beige chicken...not appealing at all. It was spiced well, but just not worth returning for.

Great casual place to eat good food! Love their chicken wings (I know, should be reviewing seafood). I do not usually enjoy wings but my mouth is watering just writing about them!!!! The crab cakes are very very good with little filler. I was skeptical since they are North Carolina style (no Old Bay seasoning!!!!????) But for those of us... More

We had dinner for our last night on the OBX. We were not disappointed. Excellent food, and our waiter made great recommendations. Good local brews on Tap. The Jerk Chicken, Calypso Pasta, and Jerk Shrimp were fabulous. You do not leave hungry. Entrees priced 16-20 dollar range. worth it.

We had dinner here and it was surprisingly good. My husband had the seafood platter and he said it was very good. I had the pasta with shrimp and scallops and it too was very good. It would have been better with a roll or some garlic bread.

Went twice this trip to OBX. The evening trip was busy and the kitchen was closing so just a quick drink and live music. Later in the week we called in take out. Wings were big and yummy. Crab cake sandwich and hamburgers were big and tasty. Staff friendly and busy! We will be back
