Clean. Large dining & bar area with table/chairs. Friendly & efficient staff! Philly steak sandwich very good but could have used a bit more filling. Bun was large, about 12 in. & so fresh! Meatball sub had 6-7 meatballs & was delicious! The ranch chips...More

Husband had the wings and they were very good. I had the broiled flounder that was fine dining quality. Nicely decorated and staff was very attentive.

Nice restaurant with lots of TV's all over the place. We have eaten there three times, with the most recent visit on April 26, 2017. Their burgers are 1/2 pound and come "dressed" in many different ways and if you like sweet potatoes, accompany your...More

Wed night is trivia night - added to the already fun atmosphere. It was quite busy, but didn't mind the wait. We enjoyed the Topsail salad and spinach dip. Drink refills were very slow, which would have been understandable given the crowd, but our waitress...More

Hit and miss but the appetizers and burgers are delicious. They have sweet potato fries and when they are not over cooked are slamming good. Their steak and cheese is also yum. Good place to eat and watch a game if your on the island....More

Eat lunch here occasionally and enjoy their appetizers and burgers. Always a pleasant meal. The service can be a bit slow when crowded.

Hello. We will be having an very small wedding ceremony at Soundside Park on Friday, 1 April at 2:00. We are hoping you can accommodate our party of 10 for a meal afterwards, possibly around 3:30 or 4:00. Is this something your establishment can help us out on? We would, of course, like to sit together with the bride & groom both at head of table and possibly if you have table cloths; just to make it semi-formal.
