Enjoyed the beer battered fish. My wife had the fish tacos and they were delicious as well. Service was friendly at the bar and the place was packed.

We were on vacation and a party of 8. There isn’t much seating available, so go early or expect a wait. The food is fabulous! The wait staff is very friendly. This is one of our favorites when visiting OBX.

So this is a typical beach setting resturant, in fact in a strip mall. But, the food is not typical, it is fantastic. We sat right beside the kitchen and watch the plates all get staged and go out. They ALL looked very appetizing. I...More

Nearly everything our party of four ordered was excellent. I say nearly everything because the dessert described as bourbon pecan pie, although good, was not your usual pecan pie. It had a lot of chocolate chips, two kind of sauces and not many pecans. It...More

Our desserts are freshly baked daily. We don't always have the same offerings, however, the flourless cake often is offered. I can't guarantee it, but Ibcan guarantee what we have will be fresh. Cheers and bon appetit!
