AAA Inspector Notes
Rebuilt after a devastating fire several years ago, this large restaurant has been beckoning to travelers for 20 years and is run by a longtime local family raised on the ways of the watermen. From a prime spot on the causeway, they offer panoramic views over the Roanoke Sound, and visitors enjoy strolling the grounds and the chef's herb garden. All the seafood is locally caught and super fresh, as is much of the produce—nothing frozen is ever served here. Specialties include soft-shell crabs and oysters in season, shrimp and grits, jumbo lump crab dip, she-crab soup, clam chowder and more items that mix local tradition and modern inspirations. Be sure to view the osprey nest just out the south window.
