Reviews for Inlet View Bar and Grill
Free dockage, good restaurant and bar, nice folks, 2017-02-19
Captain: , Annapolis (141)

I'm giving this five stars because it's free and the people who own and work at the restaurant are very nice. There are now floating docks, narrow and without power but perfectly serviceable. They are "dock at your own risk" due to the current through here which can run 1.5 knots, but you can stay overnight or even for several days, within reason. There is 10-12' of water at low tide, but the creek shallows very rapidly to the east, dropping to 6' within approximately 100' so stay to the west as much as possible when maneuvering. Was here duing the off season; the restaurant is popular and I assume the docks fill up with local patrons by late afternoon in season.

Given the lack of anchoring options for deeper draft boats on this stretch of the ICW, this is a great resource.

What a great place!, 2016-11-17

We read about this place and decided to stop today for lunch and were very happy that we did. The floating (free) dock is more stable/less wobbly than we experiece at a lot of marinas, and the restaurant is very welcoming and the food we had was excellent, and not overpriced like a lot of places. They really make you feel at home here. Now back to the food, first of all the bloody mary was probably the best we have had anywhere, the she crab soup was excellent, mahi wrap superb, the house salad was huge and fresh, and the half pound of shrimp was actually more like a pound. Server was wonderful and John (owner???) makes you feel very welcome. The tide does rip through here, not really a problem as the tide is parallel to the face dock. They will be closed for a while after Thanksgiving for the winter months, so best to call in advance. We will definitely stop here again, it was truly a fabulous meal/experience.

Great Food & Free Dockage, 2016-05-10

We had a great meal on May 1st and stayed the night at the dock. Great restaurant with great prices and portions. Be very careful docking and leaving. The current is very fast through here. Enjoy!

We were having engine trouble on our sailboat and they let us stay all weekend at no charge. They even provided power, advice, help, and friendly faces. The waitress even offered to take us to the grocery store. I can't say enough wonderful things about this place and it's kind staff and owners.

Nice area, docks have no power or water, and strong current. Nice people. The view from the restaurant and the food served was great and plentiful. I understand they are installing new docks and hence the lack of power and water now. I'd like to stop here again.

Oysters is a speciality, Great Staff, Great owners. Make you feel at home, Be careful of the current can run upto 17 knots at peak. Stay in channel, Islands form at low tide.

Fun place to eat., 2011-11-14
Captain: , Denver NC (329)

The bar on the top floor gives a great view, Hence the name inlet view. The current runs strong here so caution needed to dock up. Be aware of the shallows in the center of the inlet.

Good Food here, 2011-05-03
Captain: , Sunset Beach, NC (1136)

Food is good here and they claim the kitchen is run by the same folks who ran the resturaunt in the old Hughes Marina. It was good then and it is still good. Scallop Burger is superb.

Dockage is first come/first served. Be careful of the current.
