The food is always good and usually unique. Service was great and a fair price. Have gone there may times over the years in Wrightsville Beach.

We had the shrimp and grits, and bacon wrapped scallops. They are very skilled at cooking seafood. The manager was able to answer questions about gluten free options. I would highly recommend!

They forgot our order, the crab legs had no meat in them and when I showed staff, he said try harder. No thank you....I’m a pro.

Restaurant has a nice web site, but interior is outdated and cheap looking. Staff is nice and welcoming, but despite their good presentation, the food quality is very modest. Had shrimp snd grits, way too salty to the point I could not eat the grits....More

We should have known when we went in and were literally the only people in the restaurant on a Thursday at 7pm that something was wrong. Food was mediocre at best, and overpriced for what it was. The place had a weird smell, not appetizing...More

When we visited the area we saw LOTS of people walking dogs on the streets; so it's a dog-friendly area... but I think it would be silly not to call first to double check.
