Description: We are a casual dining restaurant located on the Pamlico Sound in Buxton. We have been serving lunch and dinner on the Outer Banks for 18 years now, six in Hatteras until Hurricane Isabel took our building away, and then we blew up the road to Buxton for the last 12 years. At this time lunch is served daily 11:30-3, and dinner is served nightly at 5pm. All of our soups are homemade, we serve an assortment of fresh seafood daily, as well as sandwiches, steaks, ribs, and pastas. We have live music on the deck Thursday & Friday nights this summer. Hope to see you there!!

We enjoyed eating here. The view is great of the Pamlico Sound and they have Gluten Free items, which is great for my wife who must eat Gluten Free. The place was very busy and is right on the sound.

Crabcakes boast "no filler" and it's true. Lumps of backfin vs. claw meat make it delicious. If you want them broiled, don't forget to ask like I always do... even fried they're delicious. Good food and good view. Kids menu and Gameroom available to keep them busy. Full bar if you just want to hang out and have a drink.

My husband and I came here for lunch on our last day of vacation, we were staying in Frisco, so it was not a long drive at all. Got there around 1pm and were sat at a corner table, windows and lovely views on two sides of us. They have the BEST coconut shrimp we have ever had! The waitress accidentally brought us the order for the couple beside us (no big deal at all as we got a glimpse of their meals). She ordered the shrimp basket and he ordered the bbq sandwich on recommendation of the server. Both of their meals looked wonderful. We received our meals in a timely manner, we had just finished the coconut shrimp. My crabcake sandwich was really good and my husband enjoyed his fried trout sandwich. Their tartar sauce was delicious! We would give this 5 stars, however, we had an amazing experience at The Inn on Pamlico Sound which we gave 5 well deserved stars to, but this 4 star lunch was a great afternoon as well.

The restaurant is up some very steep stairs which was the first part that we didn't like. The food was average nothing really to brag about. My husband said his blackened scallops were very good. Probably won't go back.
