Location & Hours


Things are going to be a little different this 2020 season as we adjust to a TOTALLY TAKEOUT / CURBSIDE PICKUP routine. We’ve had to slim down our 2020 menu just a bit. We’re accepting orders by phone as usual – and now, we can also take your order online! Of course, we are following CDC and industry guidelines for cleaning and sanitizing all aspects of our operation, facility management and food safety. The biggest change is that we can’t serve you inside, chat with you and enjoy the great vibe you bring into our restaurant. But we’ve done great takeout for years, so overall, we feel like “we’ve got this.” Here’s how it will go:

  • ORDERING PROCEDURE – Simply place your order by phone or online. We will take payment at that time and provide an estimated time your order will be ready. Or you can place your order early in the day and request that it be ready later in the day. 

  • PICKUP PROCEDURE – We will bring your order out to you – directly to the parking lot. Staff will be wearing face masks and gloves. 

We’re working hard to make sure you can continue to expect Great Food ~ Awesome Service from the ACC! We’re all in this together, so we’ll be counting on you to let us know how we’re doing – the good and the problematic. Our goal is to make this work for everyone so that this “new normal” still feels like a great day on Hatteras Island! 

Hours: CLOSED for the 2020 Season
