We had take out here and the food was awesome. Will be back. Even the French fries were hot. Could not believe it. Keep up the good work. Had Shrimp French fries and coleslaw. Yummy. Hubby had scallops French fries and cole slaw. It was great too. Try it. You won’t be sorry.

Dropped in late on a Friday as the crowd thinned out - almost no wait. Great menu exceptional service despite them being understaffed in the last hour of being open. Food was delicious and great value fresh local seafood was top-notch.

We've been traveling to Cape Hatteras since 2009, always trying different places to eat and for the first time we had a 5 stars experience. Both service and food was excellent. Chad, our server, was great and the food was amazing. The best soft shell crab I've had in my life. Scallops grilled to perfection. Crispy crab cake. Super fr ... read more

Have eaten here several times and never disappointed. Again ordered the seafood platter, loaded with mussels, clams, shrimp, snow crab and lobster. Fish bite appetizers are delicious. Recommend eating here, you will not regret it.

Soft Shell Crabs - Yay or Nay
I was super excited to try a soft shell crab and found out their either 1. I don’t like soft shell crab or 2. This is not the place to get a soft shell crab.

The food was amazing, and the service was spectacular. Coming from PA where there are more COVID restrictions, we were happy to see them enforced at this spot.

Ordered for takeout in person. It only took about ten minutes. I ordered blackened drum fish with a salad with bleu cheese and collard greens on the side. The fish was good as was the remoulade sauce on it. The salad and dressing were good. The collard greens were a little different than I had expected: it was much less smoky and muc ... read more

Overall, food was good. They are taking precautions due to Covid which we appreciated, to protect people and their staff. First they have outdoor seating only, serving in to go containers only to limit what goes back in the kitchen- fair, again I appreciate they want to protect their staff.

Food was good here. Wouldn’t call it mind-blowing but certainly have no complaints either. Wasn’t a long wait to pick up our order.

Went to this place because it was close to where we were staying. They add an automatic 18 percent gratuity because maybe it has to do with covid. Anyways it beats me having to do the math for tip.

Great food, one of the servers was in a bad mood, not sure why. They had interesting rules because of COVID-19, they charge 18% gratuity on all order, you order your food as takeout and can eat it out side on one of their tables.

We ate here one night of our vacation and it was wonderful! We wanted to dine in but we're told the only option was to eat outside and be "served" but with to-go containers due to COVID.
