Excellent food and friendly staff. Ended up there by accident when the spot we chose had a crazy long wait. SO very glad we did! Raw oysters were a perfect appetizer. Crab cakes and a seafood trio for dinner were excellent as well. Highly recommend!

Our server was incredibly attentive, kind, etc. (I'm sorry I don't remember her name, but she had a pixie cut and fun earrings...). I could recommend the restaurant purely based on our interaction with her, but luckily for us, the food was impressive and memorable as well! The drinks and food were tasty and vacation worthy.

The good here is very good. The softshell crab was cooked to perfection. We also had the oysters and crab dip for apps and there were both great. The fried scallops and flounder fish sandwich were both cooked perfectly and delicious as well.

Loved the atmosphere and friendly employees. Hands down the best seafood I have ever put in my mouth. We ate there Aug 20, the end of our vacation. Next trip to Hatteras Island I plan to eat there every night, so I can try out everything on the menu.

All the staff were friendly and happy, even though we arrived during the dinner rush. We opted to sit at the bar and the bartender was attentive, while still filling drinks for tables.

Hush puppies excellent and large! One is roughly slightly bigger than a golf ball. We got the 12 but should have gotten a 6. If you have left overs take them back to your place and top with ice cream and honey for a sensational dessert! Service was great, employees worked together which was great to see. Quiet and large tables. Clean ... read more

It was our first time staying in Avon and we were looking for someplace to eat on Monday night. The first restaurant we tried was a 2 hour wait - no thanks!

What a wonderful place to have a meal. There were 11 of us and we ordered: soft shell crab, to crab legs, steamed shrimp, the fish special, fish Oscar, and even a steak and each loved everything.
