Chicken Sandwich. hubby says: it was awesome. Lots of Caribbean jerk sauce and a big slice of fresh pineapple. Monster Burger.... More

A getaway that our extended family frequents at the Outer Banks. They prepare excellent blackened Tuna Tacos. An extensive menu to choose from but the Tuna Tacos were excellent. Comfortable surroundings and quiet enough to carry on a conversation along a long table. Ample parking.

They offer live music on some late nights. All the food was good. Their wings and mahi mahi nachos were particularly memorable. Blacked fish tacos also very good. For margarita lovers, I don't think there was much alcohol in their frozen margaritas.

Went in last night for some drinks as I had I just arrived for vacation. Wanted to find a fun places to start off with a nice drink. Once inside at the bar felt as if I was neglected. Asking bartenders what a fun fruity drink would be, and they didn't want to give help. Very short, very rude, if... More
