My entire family really enjoyed the food and atmosphere of this small family restaurant. Everyone enjoyed their food from the shrimp burgers and wraps to the cheeseburgers. Also always good to see local people in a restaurant. Unfortunately they were under staffed this day due to a local music festival so the service was not great and our waitress sincerely... More

We have a camper on the island and like to go eat at fish hook grill. You can get burgers, steak, salads, chicken, and of course seafood along with other options. The restaurant is so cute and the food is always delicious. They also have homemade desserts made here from a lady on the island. It's a definite place to... More

This place looks unassuming but don't let the looks fool you. The oysters I got here were some of the best I've ever had in my life. They were incredibly fresh and delicious with only a light coating over them. The crabcakes were also amazing. I had the sweet potato fries with the oysters and crab cakes and they were... More

...who, when asked "what's really fresh today?", answered with the Oysters Po' Boy and of course shrimp. So we had a House Salad with grllled shrimp, and the Oysters Po Boy. Wise choices. Both were absolutlely delicious, with a toasted bun, perfectly fried (very light) oysters and shrimp. Add a side of hushpuppies (good, altho no corn or other stuff... More

Stopped by while wandering around Harker's Island. Things started out well with the clam chowder. It was briny and full of clams. Ordered onion rings and a flounder sandwich. The onion rings were homemade and tasty. My flounder sandwich was raw on the inside - not just a little undercooked, but gray, jiggly and raw. The outside was a beautiful... More

We also tried the fish balls which were really good. Had so much to eat with meal that we had no room for dessert. Service was great.. If... More

We were out touring the area, and needed a quick bowl of soup to ward off hunger . . and our NC friends brought us here. The Hatteras-style clam chowder hit the spot. We were advised it was not the creamy style base we might be expecting, nevertheless, delicious. An added treat . . the hushpuppies served right after being... More
