Our contemporary coastal cuisine is driven by locally sourced seafood, meats and produce. The fresh fish served each evening is delivered daily from the docks in Hatteras Village and many herbs and fruits are harvested from our on site gardens.

Whether dining in our intimate dining room, at our elegant copper topped bar or on our covered patio, you will experience exceptional food and service while surrounded by the natural beauty and grandeur of the Pamlico Sound and the Cape Hatteras National Seashore.


  • Dallas provided excellent service and he gave great wine recommendations that complemented the meals we ordered. I ordered the filet and it had a nice flavor and my husband ordered the fish special of the black drum. It was moist and flakey. We will definitely be back the next time we visit Hatteras.


  • Wonderful experience. Being waterfront, right on Pamlico Sound, the view is hard to beat. We dined here 4 times during our stay...twice for dinner and twice for breakfast. The Fresh Catch was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend the seafood bisque. It was was so creamy and flavorful! For an appetizer, we had the Brie Bites, and loved them so much, we ordered them again the second night. For breakfast, I had the avocado toast with eggs, and it was very good. They were very generous with the avocado. The French toast with house grown pears was also excellent.


  • This was amazing. Every person in our party enjoyed their meal. From the duck to the steak, seafood pasta to lamb, everything was delicious. Excellent service, great views, nice facility. It's expensive but worth it.


  • Great atmosphere, superb service, outstanding food , excellent value. Checked all the boxes. If you want a finer dining experience this is the BEST place in the outer banks.
