We started with the fried pickles which were GREAT! Ordered fried chicken and BBQ- when the BBQ arrived I immediately thought I would need some BBQ sauce but it’s so flavorful, you don’t need it. The kids were starving so our waitress brought their food first, which was much appreciated! Clam chowder was good as well. We finished it off with some banana pudding. Great spot in Emerald Isle!

We were in the mood for some nice music and a relaxing atmosphere and that part was nice here. The backyard area is peaceful and it's nice waiting in the shade. However, the drinks are way overpriced and the food is too for what you get. That's disappointing because if they would lower their prices a bit it would be a really nice place. We won't be back.

We’ve eaten here for breakfast a couple of times and have enjoyed our meals. I must say, dinner was even better. I ordered the special of the day, which was scallops. Oh, so good! I also ordered the side of cucumber salad and mac and cheese. I hesitated at first about the mac and cheese but am so thankful I got it. It was delicious. Order it! Great atmosphere outside too. They had tons of places for kiddos to play and the music was fun to listen to that night.

We are here for breakfast during the week. Seating is limited so expect a wait. They had a good selection for breakfast and reasonable priced. It was a bit of a wait for our food to come out too. But we were not in a hurry so not a big deal.

Great place for great southern food. Grandson loved the mac and cheese. Shrimp and grits! Best fried green tomatoes ever. Great place to hang out. This will be our family go to place every beach week vacation.
