  • Awesome oysters
  • Limited menu in the upstairs bar but well worth it to have that great atmosphere & view!
  • to get the best seat in the house, sit at the bar
  • Get the Crab & Lobster Bisque. Seriously!!
  • A "peck" is roughly 4 Dozen oysters. I dare you to finish one...
  • Bad Barracuda is an AMAZING dish. Crab balls and raw oysters are good as well.
  • Get the lobster bisque. Better than anything on their menu.
  • Absolutely HORRIBLE experience. I understand a long wait in summer but it is NOT worth it. 2+ hr wait, bad bar service, "preferential" seating for locals. Go to Tortugas Lie instead.
  • This is where the locals go for excellent seafood. Sit at the bar-great service.
  • Amazing staff. Manager really knows how to run a Restaurant!
  • Gotta try the hush puppies & the crab & lobster bisque!!! They are delish!!!!!!
  • Steamed combo #2. Do it!
  • The Raw Bar.
  • The Clam Chowder is some of the best ever. We always love the shrimp and crab leg combo and hushpuppies! Send 1 person to get on the list and play games on the pier across the street.
  • Excellent "dive". I have to go here every time I am on obx
  • Do not recommend!! At the beach & wanted oysters. Asked bartender that was shucking where and when they were harvested. She said out of the James River 10 days ago. Seriously? A mistake!
  • The! Beer oysters and steamed shrimp! That's what you really want here!
  • Freakin awesome food! Wahoo was a little dry but the Mahi Mahi was cooked to perfection! Try a happy clam with their house brew!
  • Great fish.
