Food was average at best, place was a little understaffed. Busboys would have sure helped the cause. Our family of 5 ordered two appetizers, the guac and the queso. We also ordered a burrito, fish tacos, the crab meat pizzadillas and ceaser salad withs shrimp....More

Great place to visit and have lunch, dinner and/or cocktails. The dining is on picnic tables overlooking the sound and right on the Duck walk way. Food is ok; reasonably priced.

Beautiful day and sitting on the sound is great. We got the chips and queso which was great. Hubby loves the duck tacos and highly recommends. The rose wine slushy is to die for seriously good. Service was excellent!

Laid back, informal tacos, burritos, etc right on the Currituck Sound. Seating is outdoors at picnic tables with wait service. Good selection of beers on tap. Start with queso or guacamole, then the ropa vieja burrito. Can't go wrong.

Chips were a little stale and margarita was not fresh and made from a sugary mix of some type. Was convenient to shopping with a great view but not worth going out of the way for.

Bad reviews seem mostly about bad expectations. This is a great place for a laid back quick meal. The bar is friendly (no liquor) and the food is decent and fast. Definitely recommend for a good start off to a week at the beach. Fish...More
