''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...''

''Haven't been there since 06 but it's the best breakfast in town. Looking forward to a visit in 08...''
''There is no better place for lunch. The service is fast and friendly and the food is made to order. Choose your own ingredients or try one of their creative sandwiches. The desserts will please any sweet tooth - ummmm...''
1 ReviewNew York Deli 407 Atlantic Beach Causeway, Atlantic Beach, NC 28512
''We've been going to NYDeli for four years, and it's time fo the owners to redo the interior, and update the menu. The existing menu is good, but needs to be ''kicked up a notch''. Maybe some panini sandwiches. The redskin potato salad is excellent. Jerry, the owner who takes the orders and mans the cash register has plenty of attitude--we call him the ''sandwich Nazi''....''
''We have been visiting a few times a year for a few years now and it has always been just great. We always eat inside. big crowd or small. Everything is well presented and worth the wait. Very nice folks too....''
''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....''
''We live in the area! This is a wonderful place. If you visit at just the right time, the kids (or you!) can watch the staff make HOMEMADE fudge! It is very neat. They offer a variety of flavors. My favorite is the Chocolate Peanut Butter. Go visit!...''
''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....''

1 ReviewEl's Drive-In 3706 Arendell Street, Morehead City, NC 28557
''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...''
''Superb Place with nice atmosphere, very clean with tasty food. Job well done by owners who daily show how hard they are trying to please each and every customer. My steak was delicious and the desserts are amazing. I'm not a drinker, so can not comment at all about the wine list....''
''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 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!...''
Not Rated 1 ReviewCrispino's Pizza 2900 Arendell Street, Morehead City, NC 28557
''I had the pleasure of having the pizza on a recent trip to Morehead City. It was just like the best pizza places in NY. Great sauce, cheese and crust! Well done folks!...''
''My husband is a Marine stationed at Cherry Point, NC. We eat here occasionally. Our favorite is the Crap Dip. The prices are a bit steep for the food that is served, and on occasion I have had slow service. However, comparing to other restaurants nearby, it is decent. (Psstt.. if you like Mexican, eat at El Zarape instead...unless seafood is really what you desire.)...''

''This McDonald's has the WORST service of any McDonald's I have ever been to. It doesn't matter when you go, you can be sure you'll be waiting a long time for your ''fast food.'' I avoid this McDonald's like the plague. It takes less time to go inside the McDonald's in Wal-mart than it does to wait at this place....''
