Very casual. Order at counter. Small seating area. Probably a fair amount of take out. Good sandwiches, reasonable prices. Tries the tuna salad sandwich special (very good) and the shrimp burger (wanted it to be a little better). A good option in Hatteras Village.

We were in need of a quick lunch and we found this little spot. There were not a lot of places open at the time as it was a day or 2 after Hermine hit. My husband and I each got a sandwich and chips...More

We were fortunate to not be flooded by the storm like many places. The chips you enjoyed are made by Zapps and are indeed a very good chip. Thank you so much for taking the time to review us!

Eaten here several times. Usually for lunch before or after a half day charter. Sandwiches are very good...a little pricey, but not objectionable. Friendly staff. Recommended.

Horrible food. Service wasn't that great. Save your money. Processed meats and expensive. Stools are income triable to sit at. Not a nice experience.More

Yes we do use processed meats, as does every other deli we have ever been too. We don't have the area to raise our own cattle, butcher them and then cook to order. We use high quality Block and Barrel brand meat and cheese. If...More

The crab cake sandwich was so delicious. An enclosed porch allowed us to eat in the air conditioning. We rode our bikes there from our campground.

We'll be in Hatteras Village late summer, and this place looks like a must see (and eat) based on the reviews. Particularly like the fact that they grill instead of fry. Fried is okay, but not for everyday. We'll review after our visit. Can we bring Molly, our cockapoo and eat outside?

There are seats on the open porch but no table tops. There are also picnic tables near the water. If the closed in porch (A/C) is empty Molly is welcome there as well.
