My wife and I are not huge oyster fans, but there is plenty else on the menu to satisfy our need for good seafood. I had the shrimp and grits which were quite delicious. The beer selection was very good as well. Unfortunately, our crab...More

Fun place with excellent food and staff. Everything was fresh, properly prepared and professionally served. We enjoyed dine-in so much we ordered steamer pots for our cottage one evening. Awesome!

Excellent fresh oysters. Both local and distant. Good service. Fresh fish. Enjoyed Atlantic Halibut. Not a tourist trap. One can be taken in by many subpar seafood establishments in the Outer Banks. This however is not one of them. A very pleasant and charming place....More

Got a variety of oysters and steamed clams. Very good. I liked that you could pick out your own bottle of wine from their deli area to drink with dinner.

Disappointed because at 6:30 on a Wednesday night they were out of clams, scallops and mussels. Had the crab appetizer, mushy crab in a fried coating. The side of fries was lukewarm and limp. The noise level made it difficult to converse with the other...More

I'm sorry you were less than impressed with your dinner experience. Because of our half price on the half shell oyster special every Wednesday, that day between 5-8PM is generally our busiest time of the whole week. So yes, I imagine it was a bit...More

Gourmet Market turned restaurant featuring fresh local seafood, steaks, crabcakes to die for, creative sandwiches of house roasted meats on fresh baked bread, and one of the best selection of oysters on the East Coast. Outside dinning in season, extensive wine selection and best prices too.
