A group of nine of us had breakfast there the last day of our stay. Service was poor at best and the breakfast menu left a lot to be desired. Mostly sandwiches unless you wanted to order all sides to make a plate. I think...More

We've been here in prior years because, among other features, they have the best wine and beer list in Avon. New on the menu this year was liver and onions prepared in the classical way, a dish that's very hard to find on restaurant menus...More

Can't speak to lunch or dinner since we only had 2 breakfasts there. It was very fresh and fast. Would definitely go back. Be aware though, that coffee is strong! Good, but strong.

Shrimp and grits are always a favorite! The special with fresh wahoo melted in your mouth. This month they have Ta Ta Martini fund raiser for the Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation, thank you for your community support. Definitely Recommend!

We enjoyed the donuts and blt sandwiches. We spent two mornings there and it was really pleasant service. Owner came out and checked on us. Donuts are made fresh. Waitress hustle to make sure all guests were happy.

Had dinner there this evening. I had the boiled scallops and shrimp with side Caesar. It was delicious. Service was a little slow. I don't think they had enough servers for the volume. The server was very friendly.
