Loved everything! Grouper bites were addictive. The Bloody Mary was spicy, just the way I like it. My husband got the scallops, he really liked it too.

Shrimp, grouper bites, flounder, scallops. We ate like kings and queens here. Great Caesar salad. They have a special cornbread-sweet with cinnamon. The chalkboard specials looked great. Too bad we couldn't try them all. We will be back!!

This place has amazing food! I loved the crab nachos and the flounder is as fresh as it comes! I always look forward to eating the local seafood here. I wish it weren't so overpriced and I would visit more frequently.

This is the best place to eat on the beach. Wonderful menu and fantastic food. Grouper Linda is best thing on menu. Collards are outstanding. Not cheap, but well worth it. Don't miss this if at the beach.

We are overlooking the scenic anchorage on Banks Channel, located on beautiful Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. Our restaurant has been the Local's favorite since 1997. We welcome our guests with consistent, creative cuisine served in a friendly, casual atmosphere. You can enjoy a great burger sitting outside on our patio for lunch or experience the unique, eclectic, regional cuisine at dinner of our Chef. His menu highlights the bounty of Sea and Land, locally sourced.We also have Gluten Free/ reduced items.
