Requested seating outside and were given an excellent view of the intercoastal as well as Bald Head Island. I ordered the soft shell crab sandwich which was fantastic , My wife had the fish sandwich which she thoroughly enjoyed . Will definitely return

There are 3 different areas to eat outside, plus a smaller inside dining area. Pretty view from each dining area. Food was fine but not that impressive to our family.

Always find ourselves eating here after a wonder ferry ride and aquarium trip. Experienced the dinner menu this time and not as impressed. Many of the great options on the lunch menu are missing on the dinner. Limited choices, but the chowder was quite good....More
