Very good food, limited space for seating though. If you are lucky to get a table outside the back porch, very lovely views! Onion rings very good, sandwiches are stuffed! Excellent pricing and good for families.

Homemade pimento cheese was a little lacking in pimento, but very tasty, especially with added bacon (yum)! Clam chowder was excellent!

A very good chicken philly, cold beer and friendly staff. The live entertainment was solid and fun. We visit here every chance we can. I even mentioned this place in a song I wrote about Manteo.

This place can put out some food! They were very busy but it did not take long to get our order. It has a great variety which I'm sure anyone can find at least something to eat, vegetarians or meat eaters alike. It is close to all the shops and had a great view of the water. Reasonable prices also.

Great food with a very casual atmosphere. Back door leads to a outside deck and a great view of the boat docks and the bay. Food is always good, fresh and reasonably priced. Many sandwiches and soups to choose from. Serves cold beer.

Great place to grab a beer, eat some good food and listen to local music talent! We got the feeling that this was the local hangout as many people knew each other. It was very casual and the wait staff was very friendly and welcoming. The bar is a great place to sit and drink a cold beer while taking... More

This is a small café -- from street side, enter down a long hall (bar is to your right), and you will finally come to the cashier. I believe you can also enter from the boardwalk (back door).
