Let me begin with, they don't have hushpuppies!!! These people know how to disappoint. Tourist trap. Could barely communicate with waiter. Key words like fish bones and bleu cheese were hurdles. Menu prices are 10-15% higher than shown here on this site. Seafood platter is...More

Went here with my husband and teenage daughter end of season. Overpriced and disappointing food. From the Margarita to the Salmon special which for over $25 was an insult. At least the Margarita was only $3.75. It’s a large restaurant trying to do too much...More

We went here on a whim one night for my mother-in-law and sister-in-law's birthday. It was excellent and the staff handled our party of 11 like a pro. The food was to die for and sure made me wish we lived closer!

I was hoping that this restaurant would be better than most since it is located in the Outer Banks, but quite frankly I was a little disappointed. The food was better than average, but the prices were pretty cha-ching. The server was very young like...More
