I wish we could get this in Iowa. Service staff were very down-home. This is a great get away from the carnival environment of Myrtle Beach. We will stay here for our next trip to the Carolinas. The Visitor Center staff had some great suggestions.

Food was good both times. We even took some friends with us the second time. They enjoyed it also. The grouper bites are very good if they have them as the special when you're there. One of my favorites was the fried green tomatoes, grits,...More

We vacation in N. Topsail, and head here every year for dinner. Food is wonderful, wait staff friendly. Get there early or you'll have to wait, but it's definitely worth it!

Daddy Macs is great for lunch and dinner. Sit outside if the weather is just right and enjoy the sounds of the ocean. I usually get the fish tacos for lunch.

My favorite on the island. Great food, friendly wait staff, and I cannot say enough about the view. Sometimes, I’m only on the island for a few hours. I stay until lunch...never a bad visit.
