My family stops here every summer on our way into town for lunch and it has been a favorite. This year will be out last time stopping there. The food was so salty I could not eat it.

We enjoyed this place on a rainy evening in Duck. We typically stay in Nags Head so we showed up right at 5 expecting a wait, and we were the first people there on a Monday night in July. I'm not sure if this was...More

Excellent dinner. I had the OBX trio - shrimp, crab cake and fish. The ambiance isn't great - a little noisy. Colder beer would also have been helpful!
