Sat outside, they don’t take reservations. Parking is an issue in Wrightsville and although there is a parking lot it’s not very big, so be prepared. My husband had soft shell crabs and I had Grouper. Both were delicious. Glad we went.

Are here twice in the last week. Able to keep our dog with us on the covered patio. Food was excellent, everything cooked perfectly . Average price for dinner entree $20-$22 per person. Efficient staff, some friendlier than others. .

We were able to make reservations for two. The flounder crusted in sweet potato was good. The drink of the day $5 and worth it. Corn bread was just okay

They specialized in local sources ingredients including shrimp, grouper, flounder, and others. I had a shrimp and scallops dish that was excellent. It is rather small so you may want to make reservations. An equal amount of seating indoor and outside on the covered patio.
