“Great fresh food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

Fish was so fresh and tasty, mahi with mango salsa over jasmine rice, shrimp enchiladas with red beans and the fried mahi with waffle fries. Everything was just great. Hot sauce is made in house 6.00 a bottle. Loved it.

“Unexpected”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

We stopped at this place on the way to Roanoke from Duck. It was highly rated on Yelp. It is a small carryout style place with a few tables. The food was pretty good. We had bbq pork and a burger. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The store also has some OBX art work for sale as well. I would recommend it to anyone traveling south on Rt 12.

“Great place for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

This place is small and tight, but serves a great lunch. The fish tacos were great as well as the French Dip sandwich they had as a special that day. Service was excellent. We will add this place to our list when we return to the Outer Banks.

“Cafe casual, excellent food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

Normal food with that little something something that makes it special. BBC brisket was delicious and moist and not over sauced, slaw light with a citrus flavor and cilantro? Yum! Daughter got the black and bleu burger requested light on the Bleu cheese and declared it perfect. Boys got Mahi wraps, very satisfied. Servers friendly and attentive. Atmosphere relaxed and easy. ..just what you want in a low key meal.

“Fun little find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

I found this restaurant (actually on yelp) for a place to take my kids for lunch. It is not located on the main strip, but along the road where the houses are.

It's a small restaurant, so not sure how they would handle large parties. Fun decorations and a TV at the bar that had surfing competitions.

We ordered chips and the guac to munch on while waiting for lunch. The guac was homemade (a little on the brown side). My kids and I sat at the bar. I got the fish tacos and my kids had the chicken fingers. They liked their meals (kind of hard to mess up) and i liked my fish tacos (good but not the best I had).

I would recommend the restaurant and would go back (try some of their other entrées).
