Great restaurant, lovely staff, but vegan options are few to none

There were some great options for vegetarians, but almost everything had lots of cheese or aioli, so hard to convert to completely vegan. A note that the the beet squash salad has a fig vinegar vinaigrette dressing that the waitress told me is NOT VEGAN … it actually has beef stock in it! So good reminder to ask and not assume! 😝

Friendly Staff

The options for vegans are very limited, but the Beet & Butternut Squash Salad was exceptional. Staff was affable and eager to please.

"A" for effort

I love the fact that there is a restaurant in Ocracoke that not only offers vegan options but also proudly uses the word "vegan" in the description. I just wish they would have been a bit tastier. You could tell that all the intention was there but it just didn't quite do it for me. It needed some spice. I should have asked for salsa, though they weren't those kind of tacos. Anyway, "A" for effort. The old bay chips were very tasty, tho.

Otherwise, great setting. Beautiful patio. Also had a grilled vegetable salad that looked yummy. Didn't ask if any of the desserts (homemade) were vegan.

Pros: beautiful dining area, at least 2 vegan options , prob other things that could be veganized

Cons: food a little bland
