We arrived at the Belhaven Marina by boat. The marina manager recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The food was cleverly prepared, the service was impeccable and the entire experience was enjoyable. We will definitely be back on our next trip south.

My wife and I went a bit out of our way on our way to Kinston to have lunch here. She had the fish and chips and I had the Chicken breast sandwich and chips. Both were very good, reasonably priced and very large portions.

Truly farm to table, the menu varies daily. For this reason, forecasting a range of prices may be problematical. Rest assured you will get value for your money and excellent food.
