    I had a lovely time at Seabird. The ambiance was really inviting with its coastal-themed decor and the open kitchen was a neat touch. The food was delicious, and the drinks were top-notch - I especially enjoyed the Aperol Sours! The service was a bit slow at times, but Chef's attention to detail made the experience enjoyable. I'll definitely be back for more.

    We very much enjoyed our dinner at Ruth's Kitchen. We save our visits for special occasions and are never disappointed. Michael was great , very attentive and made sure we were not wanting for anything. Thanks for a great experience and food.

    I was treated like royalty at Tarentelli’s! My waiter Gavin was amazing!! Best service I have had in a while! Everything was homemade, piping hot and cooked to perfection. I recommend the Caesar salad! The blueberry mojito was refreshing and so delicious. Bread was soft and melted in my mouth. Pricey though! Alittle pricey but totally worth it, as the portion size makes up for it. I just had to set the record straight after seeing a disturbing Facebook review. My experience was nothing but pleasurable so you. An believe everything you read. Sometimes you just have to try places out for yourself! Thanks Tarantelli’s for such a wonderful dinner! But as it was packed on a Wednesday night, I recommend making reservations.

    My wife and I were out for a date and it is about 10 minutes from our home. We have been here 3 times and each time we are greeted with smiles and a warm welcome! Our server, Grace, reviewed the specials for the night and made sure our drinks were ordered. Both my wife and I ordered the Filet with carrots and Brussel sprouts. The filet was grilled perfectly to our choice of rare! We will continue going here for special occasions. Grace is a great server!

Discover Coastal North Carolina

The coastal region of North Carolina is a vacation magnet, and food is big business all along the shoreline. Fresh seafood establishments abound in this area, with many of them catering directly to the visitors as much as the locals. Steakhouses are also very common along the coast for those looking for a great cut prepared just right. The South is barbeque country, and you can add the North Carolina coast to the list, as barbecue smokehouses are plentiful and usually found in a bar-and-grill setting. International food is also a very popular choice along the North Carolina coast. Selections include Thai, German, Indian, and even Peruvian cuisine. Of course, there are many national chain establishments as well as locally owned family restaurants and combination eateries for those wanting something quick.
