My husband and I were staying nearby & had some exciting activities planned so we were on a time schedule and decided to grab a quick lunch. We were actually planning to try a different place in the same shopping center, but they were closed, so we decided to try Rt. 12. That was a great choice! I got the crab cake sandwich, and it was huge & delicious! My husband got a salas and he said it was great. From the time we walked in, until the time we left the staff was super friendly & eager to help. We will definately stop back by the next time we are in Corolla!

We took our large family here on our last night and were very disappointed. Seafood was overcooked, strange portions (the scallops were microscopic and shrimp very small). All of it was badly overcooked. Had 1/2 dozen hard steamers and shrimp and scallops overcooked and rubbery. One of our teens ordered prime rib and the fact that they served a piece of meat with literally 5/6ths of it it pure fat was unbelievable to us. And fat all the way through it. They took it back and got him something else but it just showed their cooks have no clue. The mashed potatoes were good. Three of our large party had stomach issues that night too. We ate here 5 yrs ago and it was good but we will never, ever return. When the kids are walking out saying we should never eat here again and the adults all agreed - that tells you all you need to know.

The prime rib was excellent, juicy and full of flavor. The sides were adaquate but nothing to write home about. The restaurant was cramped and hot. I would go back for the prime rib but not much else.

Sorry...the service and atmosphere was great but the seafood platter we had was pretty bad. I could not eat the crab cake (which was grayish) , the shrimp too small for a platter, the mahi was tasteless. We are originally from MD so maybe we just expect too much.

We were vacationing with a group of eight adults with different flavor palets and we all enjoyed excellent meals and service. The pork chops were out of this world. No one had a complaint about their meal and we all had different entrees.
