You can choose from the seaford in the case to fix yourself or they will whip up your favorites right there. The staff was so friendly, welcoming and helpful! Portion sizes and prices were excellent!

This is a very good restaurant and their prices are decent especially around lunch time. I eat at this place just about every time I go to nags head.

We went to several of the top rated restaurants in Nags Head but this was the best food we had all week. They had mouth-watering fresh seafood (we had the shrimp po boy and a combo platter with fish and shrimp) and AMAZING hush puppies!...More
