We had the most surprising dinner. The asparagus soup was amazing, the mushroom risotto perfect & crab cakes were light, fluffy and delicious. The strawberry martini, with fresh local strawberries, was refreshing. Meeting and talking to the owner was a bonus.

Tapas were out of this world good. Pleasant, friendly staff. The bartender really really went out of his way describing the food and drinks being prepared. His enthusiasm was contagious. We'll be dining and drinking here again for sure.

We have been regulars here for over 15 years and rave to our friends about it. The owner (Mark) always makes us feel at home and carefully describes each menu. The parking is easy and the atmosphere laid back. A large bar dominates the restaurant...More

Great food, drinks, service; albeit a bit expensive. Spent $200 before tip; would have enjoyed a few more cocktails and plates to share for same cost. Also, selection was limited. Still, ordered a few plates to share and enjoyed everything. Suspect small space could be...More

After hearing so much hype about this little eclectic gem of the Outer Banks, we were sorely disappointed. I don't mind paying way too much for a martini if it is a good healthy poor. These drinks were barley a shot. Our waiter was one...More
