“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

We just stopped because most other places we had planned on going were closed, but it was so good we went back the next night. One of the best restaurants we have ever been to in terms of food quality. The menu changes daily to take advantage of what's available & in season. The view of the sound is really relaxing while dining.

“Special Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

We had a wonderful dinner overlooking the sound. My wife had the largest vegetarian meal I've ever seen her receive in the five years we've known each other and she absolutely loved it. I had a couple phenomenal crab cakes that were accompanied with grilled asparagus and broiled potatoes. The sauce that came on top was fantastic and the crab cakes were broiled exactly the way they're supposed to be!

“Early Spring in Outer Banks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

Had a relaxing two days at the Inn after some windy cycling. Dined at the Cafe both nights. Our server Josh was attentive and a wealth of local knowledge. Food and service were both impeccable. Would heartily reccomend, a nice chat with the owner at Breakfast.
Would love to come back in future.

“Superb food and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012

Eating at the cafe was one of the highlights of our anniversary weekend at the Inn. Breakfast was fresh and filling, and dinners were just amazing. They use all local and fresh ingredients, and the taste reflects that. You will not be disappointed- the most difficult part is deciding what to eat!

“Exquisite Valentine's Day Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

A 5 course dinner offered the best clam chowder, seared Ahi tuna, perfect crab cakes (and I live close to MD) tenderest filet mignon and ending with tiramisu. Each course was finely cooked and presented. Sawyer, the chef, personally visited our table to confirm any special requests.

All this while enoying a spectacular view of the water.
Thanks to Inn owner, Steve, for his dedication to his guests!
