Great service in this sports bar. Stopped for lunch. Food ordered varied from salads to wings to burgers. Everyone loved their main course. The fries came out warm at best. Beer on tap was a wide variety - microbreweries to big brands. Pepsi products served here. Great tasting food.

The local fish sandwich was fresh and delicious! The atmoshphere was fun, but the live music can get a little loud.

We would have eaten more often here if we'd found it earlier in our visit. Served a delicious breakfast and we had a great server!

We had an amazing breakfast here this morning. Eggs, perfect potatoes, and super grilled biscuit. My husband raved about his breakfast burrito. We'll be back for sure, before we leave.

We go here several times each visit to Ocracoke. The owner and his wife couldn't be nicer and make an effort to say hello and they are glad you came by.
