I have been here many times and it is always good. The fish is fresh, the salads are great, the service is fantastic. Parking is adequate. The view is good. I completely recommend this restaurant.

Very good food and a pleasant atmosphere. On the water just off the main waterway, and reachable by boat and by car, it lacks some of the views and open atmosphere of other waterway restaurants and so it is not our favorite. If you are on Wrightsville Beah and want to eat just off the "island" this is a good choice.

We hadn't eaten here in over 20 years but the food is just as good now. Great location and an awesome meal.

I was a guest of friends from Wilmington, and this was a wonderful treat. We went for for lunch and sat on the beautiful deck. The Horseradish Encrusted Tuna---perfect. The other three ordered different items, and all tasted delicious. For dessert we had the Key Lime Pie--which should be called the Key Lime Cloud. The best ever. We also had the brownie with ice cream---which satisfied the chocolate cravings. The service was attentive and the server was very helpful and knowledgable. There were so many dishes I wanted to order--I will be back next year when visiting again. A hint--for those who find the dinner prices a bit high for their budget, go for lunch!

We dined at the end of September and enjoyed a perfect experience. The inside dining areas are lovely but we were lucky enough to dine outside. Phil provided the best service and offered good suggestions. The seafood (fish and scallops) were fresh and prepared perfectly. The bread and bread pudding are prepared on site and are simply delicious. We will definitely return the next time we travel south.
