A fresh approach to regional, coastal cuisine & southern hospitality alongside spectacular views of the Currituck Sound.
Inspired dinner & lunch menus served in a warm and inviting atmosphere by a professional and natural staff. Exceptional and friendly Wine Menu + Full Bar.

There are very limited reservations for groups larger than 5 and must be made by phone. Reservations can be made to have dinner at the bar by phone.
We do have some seating available on a first come - first served basis so it is always worth checking in by phone or in person to see if you can get a table. In season we have a large outdoor bar area on the sound where you can enjoy a cocktail while you wait.

No better place for good food, good wine, good friends and spectacular sunsets.

Once again we had a fabulous dinner at Blue Point on Valentines day. The special menu was great, and the new salad addition was outstanding. Our server seemed less table focused than the usual service provided. It was very busy, but a little more warmth from our server would have been nice.

No need to quibble over that since the service was fine overall.

Still highly recommended.

Excellent as usual; our go-to place in the OBX. This place has been consistently stellar in the 2 decades that I have frequented the restaurant.

Staff excellent and friendly. Menu too classy and limited for me. Too many ingredients I don't care for so ended up getting burgers which were awesome. Great cocktails. Wonderful water view! Will come back when warmer and enjoy the sunset and beverages :)

Make your reservation early! Popular restaurant fills up quickly, even in off-season. Excellent food. Fabulous waterfront views. Romantic sunsets. Couldn't get any better!

This is a wonderful restaurant with great food and good service. We have been here many times and it's always a great experience. It's especially nice around sunset when it's warm enough to sit at a table outdoors, have a drink and relax before dinner.

The crab cakes and gnocchi were outstanding, and the wedge salad was a fabulous kickoff to a great meal. Thanks Felicia for excellent service!

This is a large establishment on the sound. It's very close to other stores but on the end of the row of shops. The inside was charming, seating wasn't that comfortable but we were happy to have picked this place to eat and could have seen a nice sunset had the weather cooperated.

As always the food and service were great. Noise level was excellent but it was January in the Outer Banks so it was far from crowded. Wonderful selection of liquor and wine but a limited on beer options.

Great for 3 of our entrées, but, appetizer ribs were not up to taste. His soup was great, but, disappointing ribs. (This is a person who doesn't normally fuss.) Something was said to our server and item was deducted from the bill. Quickly and with an apology. Overall, our experience was wonderful!
