This relaxed and eclectic restaurant has a varied menu that ranges from excellent salads and vegetarian items to good seafood and steaks. Excellent recipes and food quality without being pretentious. Good alcoholic drink service and a nice atmosphere for everyone from couples to families in both indoor and outdoor seating.

Fantastic food and our server, KC/kasey was great! Big portions of good food! My kids split the pork chops and it was enough for 2 of them. My husband really enjoyed our servers recommendation which included cheese grits. Great meal!

Located in the center of Duck. Casual atmosphere. Good food and good service. It has a rather limited menu but good coastal food choices as well as good specials.

Well 1st the clam chowder was awesome! Our waitress was as my mother in law said "Sharp" lol I would say rude. Anyway there is only one side for every meal. Pasta salad. It had no flavor. No fried anything. No kids menu.

We enjoyed dinner here and I really like the funky vibe decorated with some the owner's glass creations (see the door in the photo)and yummy food. I ordered two starters instead of an entree. The tuna sashimi option was served with sushi rice and an Asian Cole slaw (delicious). I also had a salad of warm mushrooms served over greens... More
