We enjoyed our dinner. I had grilled puppy drum. One of my friends had oysters on the half shell. The food was excellent. The atmosphere was pleasant and casual.

I had the fried scallops, so good and perfectly cooked. The hush puppies are better than dessert! Interesting craft beer selection.

Came here once for dinner and once to pick up some crab legs and fried shrimp. Staff was super nice and attentive, and our food was great. Will come again on my next visit to the Outer Banks!

Food was great but it's located on a shopping center. Better if it was on the beach! The Bacon Bloody Mary was a great go along with our meal!

Great prices on fresh market seafood. Staff was friendly. Hush puppies are amazing. The brownie dessert is well worth all the extra calories at the end of a very good meal.
