On a recent stay our hotel recommended this. They told us not to be put off by the location which is connected to a gas station. The good and service were so good we ended up eating here several times. Have the scallops for sure!!

Stopped in for lunch on the weekend before Thanksgiving. Very prompt service and friendly staff. Had excellent Carolina BBQ sandwiches! (You have to appreciate the difference between the Carolina and other BBQ.) Reasonable prices topped it off. A place to 'go back to' for lunch.

Listened to a great local group last night called Aquarium. Great covers and their own stuff. Really comfortable in a small setting although there is other noise from the restaurant.

Was it bad? No. Was it fantastic? No. We stopped in here to grab a bite to eat, and while the food we ordered was good, it just stopped shy of being worth a return visit. Pretty much their whole breakfast menu is just sandwiches, and there aren't any sides. I ordered the lobster benedict sandwich, which was yummy, but... More

Guy Fieri loves this place and we can see why. Whether it's dining in, or taking home their steamer pot to cook (easy to understand cooking directions), the place and the folks there are friendly and extremely helpful. Can't wait to go back again the next time we are there.

My husband and I had lunch at Coastal Cravings, and we both had their signature crab cake sandwiches. Crab cakes are one of my favorites, and this is probably the best I've had. I'm not sure how they held together beause there seemed to be no filler, just all crab. The side of fries were mediocre, but the crab cakes... More

Stopped in because it had been on DDD. Thought there would be more choices for lunch. We had fish tacos and fish & chips. Was tasty but have had better.

Location is very unexpected, but don't let that fool you. Food was great and service was exceptional.
