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.

We were directed here by a local hotel desk clerk two years ago. We now go back every time we go to OBX no matter where we are staying - Corolla, Avon, Kill Devil Hills. The food is absolutely fantastic. Try the crabcake with no yucky fillers or some of the best tasting shrimp or scallops anywhere! Never had a bad meal! Water views are incredible from every table.
