    Crab cakes were good not great. The shrimp and clam bake was pretty good but a little too buttery

    Really good food in a relaxed atmosphere on the ocean. Go early or be prepared to wait. Can't go wrong with shrimp and grits or the bacon wrapped sea scallops!!

    Shrimp and grits are spectacular. Get the crab dip as an app...it is awesome and who can have a complete meal without the corn and crab chowder?

    Tuna tataki appetizer was really good. Frog(whatever) clam bake sucked, seafood had no seasoning...don't get it. Prime Rib was decent and the shrimp and grits were respectable.

    Don't even bother going til noon on Sundays to get your bloody fix. NC State law is to thank for a dry half hour between opening and flowing libations.

    The fish is fresh and well prepared. The swordfish was mouth watering (special of day), and the baked shrimp and crab was delcious. Few cons: the calamari was deep fried too oily, rice was bland.

    Definitely NOT hype. This is an outer banks classic, and worth any wait you may encounter. Check out the ghost stories of the old lifesaving station before your entrees arrive.
