Came here on Tuesday, April 18th, for Dinner with Family. Smaller establishment but was nicely decorated. Felt like a high end bar.

Had the Crab Dip appetizer, Onion Ring app, and fried pickles. Onion rings were average, but the beer batter was tasty. Fried pickles were good. The crab dip stole the show. Grilled Naan bread served with chunks of crab, cheese, and dill served crisped on top and bubbly. Fantastic, don't miss it.

Close friend had the shrimp and grits, said it was tasty but heavy as shrimp and grits often are so that's hardly a criticism point. The real stunner was the tuna steak. Friend of mine had the Sesame Tuna which came with a sesame crust, rice, and Asian slaw mix. I had the real winner which was the blackened tuna special that evening. Blackened tuna steak served medium rare, over garlic mash and grilled asparagus spears drizzled with a red pepper coolee. It was to die for. Ate every bite, and the portion sizes are fairly liberal. It was a gigantic tuna steak.

All in all, it was a dang good meal. I had no complaints. If you're in the area looking for a slightly more refined fare, give Pangea a try.

Nothing fancy, and the service is a little slow, but the grilled shrimp appetizer is outstanding and is enough for a meal by itself.

Finally a restaurant on Hatteras Island is catering to Quebecois. The duck poutnine was the best we have ever had in the States. Really hard to find anywhere for that matter. Gargonzola steak was extraordinary but could not finish because we ate to much of the poutine. Renovations are great and much more room. James was funny and friendly. Merci'

Stopped here for lunch after visiting lighthouses and wow! This place has character. Our waiter was Ryan and he was phenomenal. Very engaging and fun.
The food...delicious, huge portions. Crab cake sandwich is what I had. So good! Highly recommend. We were 2 families, with 6 kids, and they catered to us all.
