This place holds a special place in my heart because we eat here every time we’re visiting Ed’s parents in Oak Island, and more importantly, we had our post-engagement dinner here. Everything is always amazing – I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad meal.
This experience was no different. We started with a platter of oysters that reminded me a bit of mini pizzas – so cheesy! They came served with cheese melted all over them, with the blue cheese being most prominent. They were pretty good – not the best oysters I’ve ever had, but definitely pretty good. Though I much preferred the other appetizer we ordered – the tenderloin canapes, which came with flat bread crisps a layer of creamy goat cheese under the extremely tender tenderloin, and packed high with a homemade salsa combination. The flavors are a great combination and this was definitely something I’d order again.
For my meal, I went with the special which was Mahi-Mahi with a honey barbecue glaze. The fish was good – even with the glaze, it still seemed plain and was missing something on top. For my side, I got the Brussel sprouts which are totally delicious. I had them around this time last year and when they were an option again, I knew I had to have them. They were flavored and fried with caramelized brown sugar and spices. You likely lose all the nutrition (so don’t order these to be healthy!) because they are doused in oil as well. I even had to pat down some of the oil before eating. They sure are delicious though!
Good tips – they have 2 bottles of wine nightly for $15.00 (great deal!) and they cork bottles you don’t finish so you can bring them home. I can’t wait to go back!
