One of the best places on Wrightsville Beach for fresh seafood. Nothing beats a filet of fresh fish wile catching the sunset over the Intracoastal.

We ate at this establishment twice (lunch and dinner). Both experiences were great and the food extremely fresh and delicious. Some good drink options and beer as well.

I go there every time I go to Wrightsville Beach. The Shrimp and eggplant stack was incredible. Staff is exceptionally warm and the atmosphere is very welcoming; outdoor seating a plus; parking is a bit tight but manageable.

My husband is very, very picky. We both got the fresh catch - Mahimahi. I got their special and he substituted rice with garlic mashed potatoes! The meal an A minus and the peach cobbler with ice cream an A!

My husband was Thrilled! He rarely gets to enjoy GF calamari. Enjoyed the fried pickles, too. He had a crab and seafood Mac ‘n cheese with GF pasta. I enjoyed Mahi Mahi. Kids had burgers, no buns, with mashed potatoes. Flourless chocolate cake for dessert....More

We are overlooking the scenic anchorage on Banks Channel, located on beautiful Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. Our restaurant has been the Local's favorite since 1997. We welcome our guests with consistent, creative cuisine served in a friendly, casual atmosphere. You can enjoy a great burger sitting outside on our patio for lunch or experience the unique, eclectic, regional cuisine at dinner of our Chef. His menu highlights the bounty of Sea and Land, locally sourced.We also have Gluten Free/ reduced items.
