Dine outside on a patio overlooking the Cape Fear River. Look one direction and you can see the USS North Carolina battleship; look the other and you see traffic moving over the lift bridge crossing the river. If you’re lucky, a sailboat or other large vessel will come through and you can watch the bridge move up and down.

Kids receive a fun little coloring sheet when seated that includes their menu: shrimp, chicken tenders, hot dogs, pasta and the like. Fresh fruit and sautéed vegetables are available as side dishes. Everyone gets a basket of cornbread muffins.

For adults, any of the seafood and shellfish dishes are very well done, but duck breast and pecan chicken cutlets are equally popular on the menu. Come in the evening hours for live music.
