For the weary traveler or for the local townsfolk, this is the place to eat. Arriving here on thanksgiving, they have their annual Thanksgiving Buffet. And that’s an underestimation. Turkey, cheesecake, cranberry, you name it, they have all the classics. Definitely recommend.

The food was good and quick. The waitress was pleasant and accommodating. The place was clean. My first time there and I gather things are are a little more expensive across the Outer Banks, but the value was there. Good place.

We initially ate dinner here and noticed they served breakfast, so we were back the very next morning. We had great service for both meals. Breakfast was especially good and you just couldn't beat the choices and prices.
