Because it was a bit crowded, we sat at the bar and ordered lunch there. Good move. The bartender was friendly and very attentive --we kinda felt guilty with all the refills on our iced teas she provided without asking. We really enjoyed the food, too. The tuna on my tostada (a special that day) was perfectly grilled. In four days in OBX, this was one of the few places that made us feel welcome and didn't mess up our order.

Wouldn’t bother going, just gotten poor attitude from the hostess who has terrible customer service skills and was incredibly unhelpful. They don’t take reservations and we needed a table for 7. They said they weren’t busy and we turned up 10 minutes later to be told where was a 40 minute wait for a table, so they will not be getting our money at all!!! We got the impression they were against children being there

Wow..........I guess you don't realize that time doesn't stand still. Even a minimal amount of rational logic should be able to figure out that in a very short period of time, the wait can change. We are small (15 tables), and the tables fill up fast, wait time can change in an instant. I have verified that there was a large party, taking 4 tables, that came between your call and your arrival.

Your comments about us being "against children" is misguided and libelous. Since you don't know anything about us, you need to apply some restraint on your bluster. If you go back through our 2,296 reviews, of which 94% are excellent and very good, you will find hundreds that refer to our kid friendly, family friendly staff. This is a family owned restaurant and you are out of line with your comment.

Tiggysadler44, you sound very angry. I feel bad for you. While we hate getting one star reviews, especially when the customer didn't eat with us, I think than any person with just a bit of common sense can see that your review has no merit.

Tucked between stores for tee shirts, computer repair, music, etc. is a gem of a small restaurant. It is a very busy place and you may wait for a table but it's well worth it.
Polite and laid back staff make it pleasant.
We ordered a Chick DeCluck sandwich and a Shrimp & Grits entree. The chicken was a grilled and BBQ breast with grilled pineapple and melted cheddar cheese. A great combo of flavors while being a different take on a chicken sandwich. The shrimp were sautéed and served on the creamiest grits I've ever had. Grits have smoked gouda and bacon, a nice change from sausage. Really enjoyed this.
Top quality meal.

My wife and I arrived at 6:15pm and had a 25 minute wait on a Thursday, which was exactly what they said the wait would be. While our table had a lot of space around it, there were a number that did not. Our waiter quickly took our drink and food order. I had the mahi mahi BLT sandwich and my wife had the fish and chips. Both were good as were the fries. We shared a slice of the Hershey cake with cream cheese icing. It was good. Overall a good price for the food. Just happy that we got the table that we did.

brenner2018, thanks for your nice review. We also wish we were bigger. Unfortunately, the County won't allow us to have more tables because they feel that would stress the "drain field" We respect that, as we don't want to stress our sandbar home. Thanks for your business, and safe travels. Cheers and bon appetit!
