Stopped here on spur of the moment decision for dinner out. Food is great! From the fresh hush puppies when you are seated, the fresh catch of the day, and attentive service, this was a very enjoyable dinner for the family.

A favorite for my friends and family for years. We stop for several dinners anytime we are in OBX. The fresh seafood can't be beat. And who doesn't love a basket of freshly made hush puppies? Always a highlight of our vacation.
