This was by far the best place we ate during our week stay in Surf City. We waited about 20 minutes to be seated. The back of the restaurant has an amazing view with rocking chairs to wait. There is also corn hole to play...More

Long wait. Over an hour. Kids enjoyed playing on the docks outside restaurant while waiting for a table. Crab cakes were below par with little flavor. Restaurant provided four sauces to perhaps make up for the lack of seasoning / flavor? Wife's shrimp and scallops...More

Good food which is not typical of topsail island. Recommend the fish sandwich which is delish and large enough to split. Also wings were good.

We enjoyed having a glass of wine on the back porch over looking the sound and watching the boats. The staff was most courteous and attentive. The food was great and our kids were fighting over the shrimp. We will be back.
