''The last 2 visits to Emerald grill I ordered Hot wings and they had ran out. I ordered a cheeseburger to go with fries and soda. The owner/cook took my money and proceeded to go back and prepare my food without even washing his hands. I walked out without getting my food....''
''This will mark the 11th year my family and I have vacationed in EI, NC. Flipperz is the most kid-friendly restaurant we've found (and with 3 under the age of 10, we've done our research.) The fun decor reminds us that we're vacationing at the beach (check out the restrooms!), the service is fast and fantastic, and the food is just fine. Price is so reasonable you don't notice you're dining out. Seating is limited so go early- it's worth it!...''
''A few years ago, my family stayed here, we were driving around, and found it. The rooms really need fixed up and modernized badly. But, it was clean, and the service was excellent. The staff were friendly, and made the entire stay so enjoyable. The restaraunt is awesome. We didn't leave the whole week we were there. We are definetly coming back soon. This motel is very difficult to find on the web though....''
''I read some reviews online about this place and heard a lot about the fritters, so my family and I decided to check it out. DON'T order the fritters unless you like over sugared fried fruit. Although I did enjoy the omelet, and the prices were fair....''
''The wraps are great! Glad to see Harkers Island now has more options for dining. Service was good and I liked the bright atmosphere. I also liked that I could stop by and pick-up a lunch to take with me to Lookout. I was told that if I called in I could dock my boat at Barbours Marina and they would deliver the box lunch to me. Sounds like something I will do the next time I am out boating....''
''I love this place for breakfast and lunch, the best BLT's and fries around and the service is good too! Very nice waitresses.
It is worth the wait and it is a place where the locals go. I enjoy going there....''

''We used to dine at the Gourmet Cafe regularly until they changed their menu. Most of the pasta dishes were removed. I was so disappointed at how many of the dishes were changed that I actually didn't find anything I wanted to order. I ended up getting something I normally wouldn't have ordered. The dish was very good; however, I probably won't be back because I miss the seafood pasta dishes. Best of luck to the restaurant....''
''My husband and I eat here often when we are at our second home in EI. We stumbled upon it about 3 years ago, and decided to give it a try when we heard the owners wer originally from the NY/NJ area. The food has always been awesome. From hamburgers and appetizers to very gourmet specials. It really cannot be beat. We went by last week and found that they were repaitning the interior and putting in a full service bar. We are so excited as now we can enjoy a martini with our meal. I hated p...''
''My wife and I have enjoyed Kathryn's since it first opened. We vacation every year in Emerald Isle and have always had an outstanding dining experience -- from the appetizers, entrees, deserts, and of course the martinis! As a resort restaurant, it offers the same quality and dining experience as some of the finer restaurants in the Philadelphia area. It is a ''must do'' on our list while vacationing. Ken, the owner, always makes us feel welcome and though busy, takes time to say ''hi''. Th...''
''This is a fun place to eat cheeseburgers, chili, etc. The staff is the best! More than likely, they will remember you on your 2nd trip and also what you like to drink. This is definitely a favorite with the locals!...''
''My family has vacationed in EI, NC for 10+ years. We will NEVER forget 2003. Our ''farewell dinner'' was at the Clamdigger. My sister-in-law had the Chicken Parm. Took 1.5 hours to bring out the food, service was horrible, bill was $120.00 for 4 adults, 1 child (no drinks- we're driving home.) By the time we returned to our rental, my SIL was puking. We called the restaurant, and they said, ''You can't prove it was us.'' Classy! We moan at the memory each year as we drive past this horrible plac...''

''If you want to experience the old days today, stop by Els. I had my 1st experience 30 yrs ago and will still drive to the Atlantic Beach end of the Island just so my 8 year old and her dad can stop at Els. The Seagulls are always there for their meal and the food is AWESOME. Still true to its roots, never changed for the tourist! Excellent!!!!!!!!!!!1...''
''We live in the area. This is my favorite place to eat! Definitely make reservations. The Crab Bisque and Bread are wonderful! It is a gorgeous restaurant with freshly prepared food. It is a bit pricey, however, the food and atomosphere are worth the money! You must try this for a special occasion, or just because!...''

''You can not beat the Monday/Tuesday specials! 2 for the price of one. The stuffed steak is one of the best steaks I have ever had. An incredible wine slection and the staff is extremely well versed on wines. Good selection of beer but nothing on tap....''
''We live in the area. This is a delicious restaurant, especially for breakfast or lunch. There are plenty of specials that even include homemade dessert...for around 5.00-6.00 for lunch and around 12.00 for dinner (that's for a steak). WONDERFUL food if you just want a small home town place to eat! One of our favorites!...''
''My buddy and I wandered in off the beach and met the frendliest bartender, owner, and patrons who made us very welcome. A local fisherman shared his recent catch of trigger fish, freshly cooked and it was great. Will miss ''Our Place and Your Home'' when it is gone....''
