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.

Everything about this place is great; from the service, to the location, to the cuisine! We ordered several apps, mahi mahi tacos, the shrimp po boy, and some seafood pasta and it was all fantastic. Highly recommend it!

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.
