A co-worker who lives on Harker's Island talked me into taking my husband here today instead of a well-known restaurant on the Morehead City waterfront that we've always enjoyed. He's a big seafood lover and said he would be willing to try. What a disappointment!...More

We had about 30 people scheduled for lunch and they did a nice job in serving all of us. We had ordered ahead and they were very helpful with serving and extras. The food was very good for a large group all at once.

Stopped by to catch a quick bite before heading home. It was a nice cozy family restaurant. They offer other food besides seafood. Did have to wait a bit for our food but it was good.

Fresh local shrimp and jumping mullet? What more could you ask for from a great local seafood restaurant. Well appointed salad bar and wonderful service. We will definitely return when we are back in the area!
