Elise ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
A brilliant guide through gastronomy, fresh local ingredients, and a chef that delivers unique dishes!

We devoured our key Lime martinis, appetizers, entrees, and Desserts! I am reviewing far too late and cannot remember the menu items outside of the special Lobster Roll. Made with a fresh homemade brioche bun. What a treat! It was a costly adventure, but worth the experience and the notch quality!

Brava, this restaurant is bringing us back to North Topsail!

Delicious stop when in Topsail! We went for a bachelorette and they did a great job accommodating our party if 11. While we waited for our table we were able to stop at the bar for cocktails and shopped the fun home goods boutique attached to the restaurant. Our server did a great job and took the time to speak to each side of the table so everyone could hear her. There were multiple staff throughout the meal helping with our drink orders and busing.

For food we got a variety of small plates that we loved. For our entrees most got the burger, snapper, shrimp and grits or steak. The burger was insanely yummy and insanely rich. Definitely recommend splitting it. Between the fondue and lobster it'll have you ready for a good snooze when you get home. The sauce on the shrimp and grits was so unique and will definitely be my order next time. The steak was well cooked and seasoned. My one complaint was my meal took quite some time to come out so was left waiting while the others got started. I got the snapper and when it arrived the top wasn't crispy skin but rather very soggy and made the meal eat very one note without texture. For the high price point was just a bit disappointing.

All in all a great meal and great experience! Would definitely go back when in Topsail.

Blair ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
We made a reservation for 8 people at 7pm for a weeknight in December. The restaurant was packed, and food delicious. Everyone loved the crab cakes and crispy flounder. Milk bread is a must to share at the table. The oysters had no grit, and tasted fantastic with the accompanying vinegar sauce. Crispy Brussels Sprouts were a hit, soaked in a thick yummy sauce. The shrimp and grits pack flavor, but was too spicy for some. Three of us really enjoyed sipping on Ridley's Relief, and the bar tender made them hot for us which made the drink super aromatic and soothing. The ambiance is nice, clean and relaxed with tasteful beach decor, and the attached store is fun to explore while waiting on food; right now most things are 50 percent off! Definitely recommend this restaurant. Super cute and fun, with amazing food. A great night out with family!

Mitch ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Wonderful experience here when we were on Topsail Island 2 weeks ago. Biggest recommendation, MAKE RESERVATIONS! This restaurant is very popular

Service was excellent, food was creative and delicious. I was a big fan of the pork belly and the waygu and lobster burger!

The ajoining gift shop is well worth a stop
