All of their dishes are made from scratch!!! Amazing food & great service. Get there early for the Soecials, they serve what they’ve made & then there’s none. Can’t wait to go back next month!

Having spent much time at OBX growing up, the year-rounders here make too much of a big deal about being “locals.” So yes, this is an out-of-the-way place where locals go. But anyone is welcome here. The joint is tiny and you’ll certainly have to...More

Some of the best wings I've ever had, even the wife enjoyed them and she likes neither wings nor buffalo anything. Three of us got a blackened mahi sandwich - fish cooked perfectly but the daughter didn't like hers and didn't eat it; the wife...More

We came for lunch and found plenty of tempting choices on the menu. The food was tasty and service was fast and friendly. We would return if we're ever in the area again.
