Cold winter night meal was delightful. Wife orgered poached flounder special over rice pilaf and veggies. Good mild fish plate. Sea scallops over mushroom risotto was tasty too. Nice small restaurant atmosphere with recent renovation. Delightful sunset view too.

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.
