This is such a fun place right on the water. We had a large party and everyone loved their drinks and meals. The portions are large and priced really well. Food is yummy and our service was delightful.

Great dinner with friends. Grilled gantail shrimp was great. Crab-stuffed flounder was perfect. Loved the senior discount and the great service. Highly recommend. Covered outdoor patio was nice even though it was raining.

Yes you can but the current runs really hard on a falling tide. We have a spot just up the river from us at edge of seawall that you can walk up the rocks, just please be careful.

Description
In 1978, C.W Hughes, Jr., who owned a paving company, and his wife Allison, a retired nurse, bought a small grill, motel and marina previously called Gregory's. It was located at the mouth of the Shallotte River and the Intracoastal Waterway. The grill had 13 stools around a bar and a small tackle shop. It was named Hughes Marina and home of the Poor Boy Shark Tournament for 14 years. It was a popular restaurant with the locals. It became home for Jr., Allison and their 11-year-old daughter, Samantha. For many of those years they poured their hearts and souls into the restaurant and marina. Their other daughter Amy and her husband John, both teachers, moved from Georgia to help. It continued to get bigger and attract more customers. In 1992, the girls took over the business, which continued to grow until they closed in 2004. On July 30, 2009, Sam and Timmy, her fiancé, opened the doors of Inlet View, a restaurant with a new look and an elevator that can take you to breathtaking views both from the restaurant on the first floor and a panoramic view from the bar on the second floor, which is surrounded by decks. Their dream became real with the help of friends and family.
