This is a great restaurant to visit while at Oak Island! Great food and atmosphere. The Tuna is some of the best I have ever had! And they run some great specials at different times of the week.

Ordered a variety of shrimp and grouper. Grouper was local and very good. The shrimp were seasoned well but dry and lackluster flavor. The key lime pie was the star of the meal, a true Florida Keys recipe with a perfect crust.

Good place to eat, staff was friendly we did not have to wait to be seated. We liked it so much we went back for round two. The oysters melted in your mouth.
