You cannot beat the view over the water and the food is very good. Arrive early if possible to beat the crowds. It is a Kid friendly place as well. Moderate price to eat you will not go broke feeding several family members.

Not much more to say, good quick, nice people...most likely as it was designed to operate. Definitely not white tablecloth or gourmet, but understand this higher rating for a very beach-appropriate venue with enjoyable fresh quick meals. Go here for an appropriately priced quick bite.

Views are great especially at sunset. Pizza was fine and decent price for OBX at $16 for large one topping. Great beer selection. It's a casual dining experience good for family or friends. Pizza was all we got so can't say much about the rest...More

Pizza was great, so much so that we came back a second time. Location on the sound was perfect and we enjoyed dinner one night while the sun was setting. Take-out was a perfect option for us a second night. Pizza was great both nights!

I picked up a nice fresh pizza here one night to take back to the beach house. Very tasty under $20. You can eat there on a deck overlooking the sound.
