Always our first meal when we arrive at the Outer Banks, as it is conveniently across the road from where we stay. The pick and peel shrimp is our favorite. Nothing fancy about the place.

We came here and split three appetizers for dinner. The Shrimp Gamberoni and the Fried Calamari were excellent. The Jumbo Buffalo Wings were a bit heavy on the sauce. Not too hot (though they were hot if you don't like highly seasoned food), but they...More

I'm so sorry that I listened to my family to go here. The soda had a weird flavor to it and the chicken I had was dry. Nothing special about this place and I won't be back here again.

The service was good. Our server tried to help us find what we would like. She knew the menu pretty well and could make suggestions.

The setting is casual, but the food is top notch. It is a small place with most of the space with tables for large groups. Good service.More

We had a group of 10 and we all enjoyed our dinner. most ate seafood, but I do not like seafood and had the filet and it was fabulous! Great service. Place is small so we got there early and we had no wait.
