Stopped in for lunch on Saturday and the parking lot and restaurant were empty. Not sure as web information indicated they were opened. Hope nothing serious caused them to close as this is one of our favorite go-to places on the Outer Banks

Our large group of 12 stopped for lunch. The sandwiches were very good and the service was great. Most of us had burgers and fries that were very tasty. It is a comfortable atmosphere that felt like family.

What a great place to eat and grab a drink. Split the whale seafood platter and it was plenty of food for 2 people and was so good!

Walk up drive in makes you feel like you have went back in time. Nothing like a good burger, french fries, milk shake or coke. We love doing lunch here or just grabbing a quick bite.

Lunch for two after tourist season proved to,be a good choice. We were seated immediately and the good service soon commenced. Other patrons seemed to be mostly Outer Banks locals, as evidenced by their friendly and happy nature. We both selected the fried Oyster Boat...More
