Very wide menu choices for dinner. The portion sizes were very good size. This was our choice for the fair well dinner of the trip and was a great place to enjoy the last dinner and evening sunset view.

We stopped here for dinner after spending a few hours bear watching in the Alligator River Wildlife Refuge.

We expected just an OK meal, but we were very surprised by the variety on the menu and the quality of the food.

I had Tuna, and my wife had the scallops. Both meals were seasoned and cooked perfectly.

Basnight's became one of our top 5 places to eat in the Outer Banks.

We arrived at Lone Cedar very hungry after a day of fishing.
Our waiter was very personable and well versed on the menu.
Our salads very fantastic, and were delivered very quickly.
Our entrees were excellent, including shrimp and grits, grilled Mahi, flounder and shrimp.
Great atmosphere, great views of sound, clean, and bright.

This is a very nice restaurant with a great view. The restaurant is located on the bypass bridge between Nags Head and Manteo. I ordered the fish combo plate and it was delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
