    They went above and beyond to help me celebrate my birthday. When we arrived a birthday card signed by the whole staff was at the table, I received a complimentary drink, appetizer, and dessert. Sarah was a terrific waitress and they provided a great experience for all of our group. They brought my niece coloring sheets and a box of 64 crayons to enjoy while we ordered. Lovely experience and amazing food! Would recommend to anyone!

    The Caesar salad was not a Caesar salad at all. A very poor substitute for such a nice restaurant. The other entrees were good though.

    Outstanding meal and service in a lovely dining room. One of our favorites…we only have 2 on Hatteras Island. Last night we both had clam chowder and shrimp and grits, both wonderful. Our waiter was attentive and very personable—a pleasure. I had key lime pie, very good, and my DH had Hummingbird cake for the first time. It was very good but way to much richness after such fine and filling precursors. So sad they’re closing for the rest of our stay this trip or we would have returned at leased once more with our arriving guests. We’ll be back next year.
