A fun place. Good atmosphere and welcming, set up inside what looks like a converted church. Service was fast and friendly, food was decent, and the beer was great. A place I’d love to visit agian, and if in the Outer Banks, well worth the stop. Visited on a weekday afternoon, so it was pretty empty, but it looked like during the nght it packed up pretty quickly.
Originally reviewed: 9/14/09. Stopped here for dinner with the wife the other night. This is a really unique cool-looking building. The interior is pretty cool, though it resembles a barn. There’s a nice stage for concerts and whatnot. The lighting is on the dark side, but I liked it. There’s a nice long bar to the right of the entrance that was packed when we arrived.
They had 6 of their beers available that night. I got a sampler of 4 of them (5 oz pours) for only $6. Not too bad. I tried their Kolsch, Pale Ale, Brown Ale, and their Chocolate Stout. All of them were above average, but I especially enjoyed the Kolsch and the Stout. Very nice brews.
The food was stellar! My wife got the crab bisque and a salad. I got the "Yardbird" chicken sandwich with a salad. The bisque was creamy and smooth with plenty of chunky crab in it. Very good. The salads were good as well as we both really enjoyed their house dressing. My chicken sandwich was good, but nothing special, though they say that’s what people go there for. Meh, it was ok.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this place and will definitely make this a regular stop when I get back to this area. Recommend.
The only food I’ve had here has been appetizers, but I’ve enjoyed what I’ve tried. As a fan of wheat beers/hefewizen style, I must say I was impressed by their Lemongrass Wheat. Very light and easy to drink, and the bartender was very helpful in recommending it to me based off my personal tastes. I’ve also tried their Kolsch which was quite satisfying too.
Stopped here twice on vacation & enjoyed both trips. Plenty of seating options, but I’m sure it gets busy in season. Nice beer selection, 8 on tap & 3-4 winners. IPA & Hefe were quite nice. Food was very good, Bison Burgers, cheese steaks, shrimp & grits were all enjoyed! Bar was a good spot to catch a game at night. Worth the stop if you are on the OBX, particularly if it’s off peak!
There in the off season in October. Arrived early for dinner, the dining room was mostly empty (but the bar was nicely full) and enjoyed a good meal, quick and friendly service. Had a few beers with a nice relaxing dinner. Nice place and a great time of year to visit.
Visited twice the week of 07/13/09. Building was ok, average crowd both times I went. Had lunch the first time and tried the NC BBQ sandwich which was great. My wife and daughter both laughed when I said MMMMMMMM! after biting into it. Had the smpler and the lemongrass brew in bottle as it was sold out on tap. Loved the Santa’s Sledgehammer brew wish I could have taken home some for the holidays. Went back and had some freakin awesome Calamari and Chips N Dip. The Licorice Stout got my attention this time. Nice brew with unique taste. By far the best place to go on the banks.
First visit here. Went on Friday, June 13th. Had dinner and sampled all of their beers. Service was very efficient. Ordered the bratwurst platter and though done well enough, was kind of small for the price. The beers were all well done and tasty enough. They had six on, and I got through them all over the course of the evening. Went left when the DJ started up. Will definitely go back.
