Had dinner here last night. A great improvement over last year. New decor and seems much brighter inside since they rearranged the booths.
We ordered the she crab soup which is fantastic, also had the oysters and flounder both were super and lightly fried. All dinners come with fries and Cole slaw plus hush puppies. Everyone enjoyed that ordered the fried shrimp thought it was delicious. We had a wonderful waitress name Cissy. Hope she waits on your table as she is a super attentive.

We stopped in on the way to Hatteras for a drink. Best tanqueray and tonic with great beer on tap. On the way back to S. Nags Head we thought we should try the specialty smoked fried chicken with hush puppies. This dinner could not have been any better! Best fried chicken ever!! Moist and delicious with a perfect amount of crispy breading and smokey flavor. Falls off the bone delicious. Prices are cheap!!! Crazy cheap if you’re from jersey and remember Delicious!! The barkeep Alice makes you feel like a regular. Don’t miss it!

After 45 minutes of not even receiving our water, or even seeing our waitress, (named Maria I believe) during a time when there were only 4 other tables, we were able to catch another server and say something. Amazingly then, our original waitress magically appeared with our water. We asked when she thought our 3 baskets of fried food and the one appetizer of cheese fries (not exactly difficult food to make) might be coming, she told us it was being put together. 15 minutes later we walked up to the kitchen window and said it had been a hour...only to be told by her that she thought this tray of food was ours, but it was the other table’s, and with the MOST insincere smile she said, “Sorry”. Needless to say we told them to cancel our non-existent order and we left. This was our welcome after a long day of driving. I repeat, run in the opposite direction.

Visited twice & both times the food & service was excellent. Under new management & has GREATLY improved. Everyone visiting the Buxton, NC area should give The Point Restaurant a try. Currently closed on Sundays.

After we went to go see the Cape Hatteras lighthouse, we stopped by The Point and it was pretty darn good! It’s located close to the main road to the lighthouse so it’s easy to find
