“Great View, food not so great...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

I have gone here every year for the past 10 plus years when I am there during the summer. You can't beat the view and outdoor seating. The location is great too. They need to have more staff working though as the service was super slow. Friendly, but slow. The fried shrimp that used to be "real" shrimp, appeared to be frozen salty and nasty. Not the fresh tasting shrimp I have gotten in years past. I was really disappointed and will be going elsewhere for seafood in July.

“great view, big fun, pricey beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Our family recently had lunch on the dock. We had a ball! Great view. The kids (and adults) loved feeding the gulls and pelicans. Food was ok, craft beer was really good , and pricey, $8.00 a glass, but we enjoyed it a bunch.

“Beer, chowder, and a stunning view ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

Most of the stars are for the view & the laid-back ambience in the dining "room" which is actually a dock.

There's no haut cuisine here, no stuffy service, or even anything remotely fancy; but the chowder is good, the hush puppies are good, and there is nothing quite like sharing a pitcher of beer with your friends & family, watching the sunset on the water.

It's one of the few places on the island that is open between lunch and dinner, so it's the perfect afternoon watering hole. It's also an Ocracoke staple-- a must-visit if you are coming to the island.

“Lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

Food is ok, just sandwiches and bar food. Fun place though. Nice to be on the water at the marina. Service was good, nice and quick food delivery.
