We went for lunch to enjoy the buffet. For some reason, I wasn't led to get a salad. I soon learned why. A man came from the back with an apron on and a green fly swatter in his hand. He went to the salad bar, stood a bit and then started swatting flies!!!Wham!Bam!He was hitting the bin covers and... More

just passing through and saw that the parking lot was packed. good sign food must be good. They have a terrific seafood buffet special on Fridays. The waitress was so nice. She happened to be from our home state, so we had a nice chat. The food was good and reasonably priced.

We really enjoyed it here. Food was good and the service was excellent. The only thing I can complain about is the bar was very limited. We would definitely go back. Someone in our party has to eat gluten free and they were very accommodating.

I dined with a group for a retirement luncheon. The buffet wasn't fully stocked so many of us had to wait for the kitchen to catch up. The food was good once we finally got it.

We left the Outer Banks and needed to stop for lunch. This place surprised me, the scallops were grilled just right and the service was top notch. I recommend the Hitching Post to anyone.
