We ordered steak and pork chops. Both were delicious and reasonably priced. The waitress was wonderful and was helpful is suggesting local sites to visit. The owner has a great knowledge of the area's history and was delightful.

We stopped on our way to OBX trip and enjoyed a quick and tasty lunch. Family run with homemade goods. We split a piece of pie that was very tasty

A dozen folks dropping in all at once and unexpected and we were handled as if we had been planed for all along. The restaurant is several blocks off of US 64, but easy enough to find.

The staff was very friendly and told us a little about the area after we ate. The restaurant was right on Main Street and a great view. We stopped in to grab a quick lunch before getting on the Swan Quarter Ferry to Ocracoke.

We dropped in hot and bedraggled from the time we'd spent outdoors walking around the Bear Fest - and we felt very welcome. They helped us settle in (3 kids and 5 adults) and promptly took our orders and kept the water coming. They have a great menu with many selections. Everyone was pleased with their food.

The food was excellent, cooked well and very enjoyable. The shrimp was cooked perfectly! I have been a few times and their salads are very good also, nice crisp vegetables and homemade dressing.

This place was a gem. The service was good. I had the pork chop and it did not disappoint. They were busy, but I saw they take reservations. I would call ahead.

This was recommended by our hotel receptionist. It was a good local choice, down by the river section of town. We had a quite, relaxing dinner after a long day.
