My fiancee and I had an outstanding lunch during our trip to Emerald Isle visiting from Montana. Very relaxed atmosphere, with great decor and views of the water. Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu when asked questions about certain dishes. For our appetizer we had fried amberjack bites with a Cajun mustard sauce on the side. So Good! My fiancee had a delicious fresh oyster po' boy with a pecan infused tartar sauce. Oysters were so fresh on the po' boy. I enjoyed a fish taco plate, with grilled mahi mahi, a carribean slaw, and black beans and rice. Tacos were exceptional especially with the thick corn tortillas! As someone who cooks for a living at several resturants, I especially enjoyed the note from the chef on the chalkboard in the breezeway with a story about the tomatoes that go in their dishes. Makes it a personal experience and shows the pride in the food coming out. Great food and some good NC beers, with a great view of the Morehead City Waterfront offers a excellent stop after touring nearby historic Fort Macon.

I had the Fried Seafood Combo and my wife had the Fish Tacos. Tacos were made with catfish and were very tasty. Combo was very good with large helpings of clams, scallops, shrimp and fish with fries on the side. Dinner time was crowded but we scored a couple of seats at the bar and Nicole took great care of us and we got our food super quick.

This is a great, causal spot for a having a good meal right on the water. The tuna sandwich is delicious and their fuzzy duck cocktail is also outstanding. All of the specials were fresh fish and even the entrees other than the specials had fresh seafood and were quickly delivered. The outdoor seating on the deck overlooks the beautiful sound and has a great view overlooking he water for a perfect relaxing lunch spot with great service and delicious food
