We arrived ten minutes before opening on Saturday morning. There were a few people already waiting. Everyone was seated pretty quickly when they opened. I had the fried green tomatoes with goat cheese and shrimp. This was heaven on a fork. My husband ordered the...More

It was in a cruddy strip mall but excellent. I read the reviews but was not a believer. The service was great. The food quality selection was great. You will not be disappointed.

I beg your pardon.........a cruddy strip mall" is about the most accurate description I have read in a long time. However, it's home! I am glad to hear you are a "believer". Thanks for the smile and cheers and bon appetit!

We had a group of ten on a Friday night - wait wasn't too long (one hour) for restaurants in this area. The food was delicious - the Caesar salad with grilled onions and bacon was delightful. All food was good.

We ordered shrimp and grits and a. Bouillabaisse. We were squeezed into a corner of this noisy storefront restaurant. The shrimp and grits was spicy and ok. I have had better bouillabaisse. The broth was satisfactory. The wait to sit down was too long. No...More

If you don't mind waiting a while, this is a pretty good place to eat. The problem is the wait can be close to an hour sometimes. The place is small and when people come in with 10-12 in their party, it backs up for...More

The best food I ate in the Outerbanks! The food is worth the wait! It’s a small place, so give them time to be seated and for food to arrive.

I've driven by it a million times and finally went in because my brother took me there. The food is fantastic and best fresh fish in town. The portions are big so go hungry. Great beer and drink selections too. Prices are right and the...More

A family owned gem tucked away in a small strip mall. A MUST dinner for ANYONE visiting the Outer Banks. Great food, small cozy atmosphere but must go early or the wait will be too long.

Stopped in for lunch. Short wait (approx 10 minutes). The food was great (shrimp and grits, pulled pork sandwich, jerk wings) and the cocktails were good too. We’d come back.

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!
