My husband and I ate here on our first night in Corolla on the recommendation of our hotel who said it was a locals place. The restaurant had a nice bar which looked to be a popular spot. Locals? For dinner I had fried shrimp which was ok.....fried shrimp. The husband had fresh grilled wahoo which was really good. The restaurant also had a really nice selection on craft beers. Worth going here for the wahoo and beer!!

I wish we had actually had an opportunity to try the food here, but the young female hostess evening 4/29/18 was so incredibly rude that we made the important decision to "give her her four-top table back" and then walked right across the parking lot and happily turned over our $100 for a delicious Italian seafood dinner. Someone needs to teach this young person some manners and the importance of hospitality and service to customers. After being shuffled to the very back, dark end of the room, crammed up to the emergency exit door to a tiny table for two, we requested not to sit there. We asked for an empty table for four mid-room and with some light through the window. No reserved card on that table and no other customers waiting for a table. Just us. After a 5-second pause, she let us know that by giving us the better table, we would be really messing them up. And this information did not come nicely. So, we did the only proper thing we could; we left.

We will never have enough of the crab grenades, the bacon-wrapped scallops and other good things at North banks, nor will we even grow tired of catching up with the friendly team that has been regulars at this restaurant for years. the size of the restaurant virtually guarantees that you end up interacting with other guests -- and that is fun, too. We have met owners of local businesses, long time "residents" like us (with houses here for decades even though our primary residences are spread across the nation) and first-time visitors. Fun and great food ... wonderful combo.

Excellent food, great drinks, awesome atmosphere. Saw the reviews for this place and it did not disappoint. The drinks were on point & the chef recommendations were tantalizing to our taste buds.
