My husband and I stopped in for a midday lunch and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I could not decide on my choice so the waitress was very helpful and gave me an excellent recommendation to order. She was right. It was fantastic! They have an outdoor deck and pools tables to enjoy. Prices were affordable and food was delicious.

Service was amazing. It was bike week and the place was packed, even live music and lots of bikes. Even with that we had service as soon as we sat down. The music was great but the food even topped that.

So places were closing early or not serving food because it was off season time so one of the places recommended this spot. A little further out but Heyyy we were HUNGRY!!! It was nice..live, upbeat, and most importantly they had FOOD :) Lol! Bartender was cool, food (pizza and nachos) was good.

A must to visit in the OBX, awesome service, excellent food, amazing people - employees and customers... I'm very partial to their "Blackened Wings" but also love their specials and Happy Hours. I've been a regular now for over 5-yrs and will continue for many years to come. Come on out - Love seeing and meeting new and old patrons!!!

Great atmosphere! Fantastic specials! Live music, huge deck, pool tables, lots of parking. The staff is wonderful. From the owner, to the dishwasher, to the regular customers, truly a great place to hang out. My Outer Banks home base!

My wife and I went here for lunch and the service was decent, but the food wasn't worth the price. Maybe they were having an off day but we haven't been back since. We got a new england clam chowder that was so bad we didn't even finish it.

Stumbled in here after a wedding in the OBX. Had a guy playing music who was pretty good. Good bartender and good late night menu.
