We were here last fall after being "crowded out" from our normal go-to place for dinner at the bar. We opted for outside seating and enjoyed it even more than our initial visit. We ate tapa-style, sharing apps. 3 apps total. All good. Especially enjoyed the flatbread of the day and the trio dips. Delicious. Staff was attentive, didn't hurry us ... and we were enjoying the sun and people-watching! Food, service and value were all VG. New place to enjoy in Corolla.

Stopped here for lunch on a Friday with a friend. When we indicated we wanted to eat inside (heat wave outside!), we climbed a flight and a half of stairs to the small dining room/bar. Both of us have crappy knees--I wonder what would have happened if we had been using crutches or wheelchairs.

The server was very professional and friendly. We ordered "Grilled Corn & Pabalono (sic) Hushpuppies with House Butter" ($9) as an appetizer. They were ok--a bit underdone in the middle. My friend said that the Buffalo chicken grilled cheese ($13) with avocado hummus and chips was good. I was not superimpressed by the fish (grilled mahi) tacos with corn salad: the mango-pineapple salsa completely overwhelmed the flavor of the fish and rice. For $17, I expected better.

I think there are better places to go for lunch in Corolla.

Very unique. I was a little skeptical at first but it all turned out amazing. The Crab Cakes made with homemade Mac and Cheese as the filler, topped with chorizo sausage and spice buttermilk dressing was awesome! The hush puppies with the homemade garlic butter is a must as well.

Went there during a sightseeing trip. Nicely renovated with great appetizers and a nice beer/wine selection. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly.

The panzanella salad is a winner. Don't pass on it. My fish special was mahi with pecan crusting. The crusting was too much and the fish was very dry. However everything else: setting, food, service, drinks, etc was excellent.

You have to try this place at least once. Sit outside and it may become a favorite.
