“Good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

Funny sign at the door says "good food", and it's true, good sophisticated local food and a cozy atmosphere. A must while in Ocrakoke!

“Delicious Brunch on a Rainy Friday Morning...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Bummed out by the rain, we decided to go out to brunch with our group of friends. We had a very short wait and were very well taken care of by the staff. The food was very good and my coffee cup was never empty! The décor and layout of the restaurant was very unique and cute. I was worried about what the total bill would come to for such fancy food (Scallop & Bacon Omelets!!), but was VERY pleasantly surprised that it was such a good value. Actually cheaper than any meal on the island.

“Fabulous Flying Mellon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

For a laid back destination such as Ocracoke, the Flying Mellon sets the bar for friendly, quality service, atmosphere, and a great menu. Their wine and beer selections were very good as well.
Though a bit pricy compared to other restaurants, the food is fresh, locally grown/caught and prepared and presented by knowledgeable, skilled chefs.

I enjoyed my meal and Beth, who loves crab cakes, loved these. My meal was fine but it was not exceptional.

“Nice surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

When it comes to quality to price index, this place is a bargain. I never imagined I'll find such excellent cuisine on an informal little 'remote' beach town. I'll even say this place saved our vacation, it heavily rained 4 of the 5 days during our stay there in Ocracoke. We had dinner there 3 times, each day was better than the last.
