Greeted by a hostess with NO personality. Ok, that’s never a deal breaker. Our waitress was awesome, wish I remembered her name. I had the fried platter everything was basically over-breaded and tasted the same. The shrimp were the best part. My wife had the...More

My stuffed flounder was good. My wife's fish and chips was awfully heavy on the batter. It was kind of greasy. Wait staff friendly.

This is one of our family favorites. The prime rib is truly a piece of prime rib, and my Skullys Dirty Pasta is always good!! I️ highly recommend coming here if you are in the area!

My new favorite place to eat in Surf City. Great wings and even better blackened chicken salads ! Sides are also good. I don't eat seafood but I hear it's wonderful.

Always stop there on our annual Topsail visit. Almost go there on Fri or Sat to have the Prime Rib. Very friendly & good Waitress (Jessica). Food is very good & a healthy size portion. Shrimp & chips, just OK. Wines a little pricey.

Our group of 7 ate here after a very long day of driving. The food was good, and was typical fried food cuisine for hungry tourists. The service was excellent and everyone enjoyed the specialty drinks and seafood soup.
