Absolutely nothing new or up scale. Even the ice comes from a cooler. Excellent food, excellent charm and best service. They serve the best of the basics. Come in your overalls and enjoy the old world charm by the river.

This place is a great example of where the term "fish camp" came from. Building is slanted and seems like little has changed over the years except the patrons. Food was a little dissapointing. Tasted good at first but everyone in our party paid for...More

We loved the herring, perch and flounder. Great fish. Great service. Hush puppies were too bland, but the pies were to die for! Incredible setting. Nice folks. A real NC gem.
