Excellent local seafood. We had lobster pasta, grouper, and steak; all were very good quality, cooked well, and well seasoned. The portion sizes were all fairly large, including a salad with a good sweet potato muffin. Would recommend for seafood in Swanboro.

Excellent selection of creative seafood and turf items. We go when we want an excellent meal and they have never failed to delight in the 10 plus years we've been going. I love the grouper any way they make it but the creamy dish with...More
