Loved good food without the jacked up price of “fine dining” which means in many cases eating indoors. Sat outside with the family listening to good music under the stars and eating the fresh catch of the day. Check it out for sure!

You sit outside here, which is just fine on an evening like we had. We ordered the Catch-of-the-day, which was snapper and shrimp. served with fries, slaw and hush puppies on styrofoam plates wit plastic utensils. It was OK with us. The food was good.

The owners are good, laid back people. I'm certain as the others stated if you just call them and they have them they will hold them for you. Our area experiences the same as the OBX when it comes to fishing. Good luck!
