Ok. So I pride myself in being very accurate in my personal opinion on reviews. This particular review deserves a note. My review of this restaurant is based on where it is located. Where it is located it is a SOLID 4. If you placed this same restaurant in a major city it would be a 3. Ok? So, given the location.
Visited on a Wednesday evening about 6pm. Not very busy when I arrived but by the time I departed the restaurant was at least 50% full. I ordered the 10oz Ribeye MR, w/baked potato and substituted the salad bar for the house salad for an extra charge. They do have beer and wine. Ok, so standard lower level beer and "house" wine but where it is located I was surprised. Back to the food! The salad bar was well worth the extra charge. All ingredients were fresh and the bar itself was well maintained and clean. The waitstaff was pleasant and very attentive. The steak was cooked to order, potato hot, and bread steaming. Note: the steak was a standard quality steakhouse cut so don't expect a gourmet cut...but it was pretty good. The potato. Can a potato be the highlight of a meal? If so this would be it. Very well cooked. Not raw. Not old. They could improve by using ground pepper instead of the "pepper dust" that was available. But again. Not so bad.
For the non-meat eaters. My daughter is a vegetarian and honestly I would had not thought this place had pasta but it does. Didn't try it but I do know that between the pasta and the salad bar she would leave happy.
Final scoop? I have been driving by this location for over 20 years to the OBX and have listened to folks in the car whine about being hungry for most of those. Before you suffer through another drive to a "place that has good food" stop at this place....it has good food!
