Great food. Best to make a reservation though. The grouper was great, the burger as well, and the ahi tuna was massive! A definite repeat

This restaurant was awesome. My husband and I dined there for my birthday celebration. Our waitress, Morgan, was exceptional. She recommended the Eggplant and Shrimp Stack and it was one of the best meals I have ever eaten. The calamari appetizer was delicious and my...More

Decent price for decent food. Not a lot of outside availability. Overall worth going if in the area.

Locally owned and operated fine dining and casual destination. You can have gourmet food by a top chef or a perfect "Cheeseburger in Paradise." Indoor and outdoor seating. Free parking in their own adjacent lot!!

Went for a beach dinner and was not disappointed. Menu is varied and incentive. I had the flounder crusted in sweet potato. Sounds a little strange but it's really wonderful - slightly sweet but delicious! And whoever thought to add chunks of peaches to baked...More

Two visits in 4 days on a family trip to Wrightsville Beach says it all! The first night, a late Sunday dinner, they run out of flounder but my carbonara was a nice twist on an Italian classic, with Tasso Ham and cheese-filled tortellini. Others...More

Difficult to review, because virtually everything is just amazing! Found last year, took friends back this year, for late dinner. One was allergic to shellfish - not easy @ a beach side cafe...but they accommodated her very detailed requests. Food is amazing. Fried Maple Bourbon...More

Ate here two nights on our vacation. Fish tacos are amazing! Good service and fun atmosphere. Good for families even though there is a bar but location makes it doable.

No reservation needed.

Your restaurant came up in a gluten free restaurant search. Do you have a dedicated area for gluten free? If not, can you suggest a restaurant that does? My grandson has really bad celiac and it is difficult to eat out. Doing a beach day trip with him and would love to give him a treat by taking him out to eat. Thanks. Susan

We are overlooking the scenic anchorage on Banks Channel, located on beautiful Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. Our restaurant has been the Local's favorite since 1997. We welcome our guests with consistent, creative cuisine served in a friendly, casual atmosphere. You can enjoy a great burger sitting outside on our patio for lunch or experience the unique, eclectic, regional cuisine at dinner of our Chef. His menu highlights the bounty of Sea and Land, locally sourced.We also have Gluten Free/ reduced items.
