Good service, good quality food without a fuss. Local seafood was perfectly cooked and extremely tasty - definitely recommended for a lunch stop when passing thought the island.

If you want good, fresh sea food, this is the place. Great food and great, local bar/hang out and awesome atmosphere. The only reason I'm not rating this as 5 green circles is because of our server. We came for a late lunch and the day bar tender was super snotty. The girl that came on after her was super... More

I love this place! It's always busy but the service is good, the beer cold and the lady bar tenders attentive and friendly.

Must stop while on Hatteras Island! From the outside you might think differently but when you go in - the atmosphere is so fun with great eats!

This is a small bar but forget the alcohol. Come in for the fresh caught shrimp, scallops, oysters, and clams. I got the blackened shrimp and nothing else. It's not kid friendly, there's no refills on drinks, you get plastic silverware - but the FOOD! Try to snatch a low table, my wife didn't like the high stools.

A cool pub that serves good seafood in a laid-back atmosphere. Many different affordable options on the menu. The service was prompt and friendly. My only quibble is that everything was served in plastic but otherwise, a nice local experience.

Busy little restaurant for vacationers and locals. Love it! Nicole is fabulous, always pleasant and ready to get you whatever you want. The shrimp/crab/wasabi balls were to die for!
