Fodor's Review

Hearts were broken when this restaurant, owned by powerful North Carolina Senator Marc Basnight and family, burned in 2007, but the rebuilt contemporary setting with simple pine tables, large windows with waterfront views, and a huge glass-walled wine rack in the main dining room is sleeker and more spacious than the original. North Carolina produce and seafood star here. Soft-shell crabs in season come from an on-site shedding facility, and a stunning, extensive herb

garden provides fresh seasoning. Try local favorites such as clear clam chowder, pan-blackened bluefish, or whole fried flounder. Beef, chicken, pork, and pastas are also on the menu. Brunch is served on Sunday.
