It was packed when we went here, but got seated right away. We both ordered off the starter menu, 1 each and 1 to share. We got the best bread and spiced oil (ordered extra balsamic vinegar as well) to munch on while the rest was being prepared. The sliders and shrimp were fantastic. We returned 2 nights later for...

Actually visited here in May 2015. 4 adults & 3 young children. Very accommodating staff at early dinner hour; good menu @ reasonable prices. Yes it is a bar in part, but don't overlook if children also included!

Ate here tonight and found the meal to be almost inedible. Three at out table ordered fish and chips - a usually safe order. The fish was fried so hard and dry that I could only choke down part of one piece. Fries were too salty and I love salt. The other two ordered sweet potato fries and were charged... More

I had the baby back ribs and they fell off the bone and where very delicious. I was in the section with the bar and TV´s... there it is a bit hectic because of all the different TV stations running but that was OK for me, since I like football and stuff but they also have a section where are...

We had the bang bang chicken tenders and the Maryland crab dip. Both were excellent and hot. I was a bit disappointed that my did came in a plastic cup and they told me they ran out of souvenir mugs.

Everything about the experience was wonderful. The service, food and atmosphere was incredible. I come in all the time and I am always impressed, it was just about time I let everyone know. The ahi tuna bowl is a must get as well as the Brazilian steak carnival. All the servers are great and I recommend asking for Luke.

We enjoyed our late lunch here. The service was good, and I liked the atmosphere. The spinach and artichoke dip was yummy. My boyfriend and I both enjoyed the salmon. We'd go back.

Recommended by Lady at local hotel as prices were reasonable and a lot of food choices. Once inside restaurant was nice and open and had a lively atmosphere. My wife got the fish tacos and she said they were good. Me on the other hand got the Bernie burger. After one bite I saw the inside of burger was raw.... More

Absolutely delicious, and not too expensive! The "lean" fish tacos (which I got because they sounded good), were the best fish tacos I have ever had!! The prices are very reasonable for the Outer Banks and my fellow diners also commented that their food was excellent (Greek salad, hot wings, and the non-"lean" fish tacos). The staff was also very... More
