As we have finished our season and are closed from October to May we would like to thank you for helping our 10th year in Corolla, NC. be our best ever. We serve fresh seafood and also offer a full menu served in a fun, family friendly atmosphere. We have a separate lounge area with 3 TV's. Join our awesome staff for lunch or dinner. We do accept and recommend reservation. See you in May 2019!

The food was good, however I wish there were more options to choose from. We have some picky eaters and would have liked to have a few more options. Our meal was good just a little pricey.
