    Wonderful hidden gem. Everyone was so friendly from the front door all the way through to the farewell goodbye. The food was exceptional with some choices offered beyond u you our standard fried seafood platters. Items such as fried green tomatoes, magi magi grill with Korean sauce and sticky rice. Even the breaded seafood items were lightly coated with a gently not oily fry. Such a nice new place to add to our ever growing mist visit lists for OBX.

    The food was overall good. They were out of a few items but had specials in addition to the menu. We had someone in our group that had dietary restrictions and they were not able to accommodate them. Basically they needed food that was just broiled which seems like it should have been easy enough to prepare. Server was new but very friendly and did a great job even though she started out nervous. We had a few questions and what she didn't know she willingly found out.

    Fantastic experience and food. Laid back atmosphere. Owner and staff were outstanding, gregarious, and welcoming from the second we walked the door on a very busy evening on Fourth of July week. Capped off the meal with some of the best desserts I’ve ever had.

    Quickly seated and xcellent service. Clean and laid back ambiance. Menu choices somewhat limited for a family, but the mahi mahi and shrimp linguine dishes were tasty.
