Pamlico Jack Ferrell, known from the cold waters of New England to the aquamarine depths of the Carribean for his passion for pillaging, and his obsession for the cargo he so desperately sought... spices. Longing for the adventurous life on the open sea, (and having no better options as a poor lad), young Jack Ferrell signed on with none other than Captain John Rackham, better known as "Calico" Jack, a pirate so named for his penchant for colorful cotton garments as opposed to the velvets and silks so popular in that day. Working as a galley assistant under the renowned chef known only as "Frenchy" Miller, Jack soon found the thrill of adventure he was seeking, for Anne Bonny and Mary Read, women as fierce as any male pirates of their day, were also part of Rackham's crew. Those adventurers encountered the infamous William "Captain Kidd", whose ruthlessness appalled the young Jack, and the most notorious pirate in the history of seafaring, "Blackbeard". Jack's contemporaries found him quite clever as well as engaging when socializing with the ladies.
based on the many positive reviews that I found online, I made reservations for a birthday dinner for my adult son. What a disappointment! The food was not good, the waitress was not good and attentive. We had to keep reminding her what to bring us. Very disappointing. And for the cost! not worth it and will not go back there again.
I have been going to Nags head for many years and
for the most part the restaurants are below par.
But I just got back from a dinner with my wife at Penguin Isle
for the 1st time, we both were delighted. We ordered the
variety penguin choice appetizers, oysters 3 ways, blackened scallops with a wasabi style steak, all for $16. This is
a good starter for 4. I had the chicken/tenderloin/and shrimp
mix for $21.I must say the steak was really delicious and the wait staff was very efficient, next time I will get an all steak dinner.
My wife had the complete oyster dinner for 15$, this in
included ceasar salad with pieces of anchovy in the dressing
with very fresh and sweet Romaine lettuce with at least 15 fried oysters mashed potatoes and your choice of dessert, she got the cream brulet.She loved it.
We will definately go back there again.
after 15 years of visiting and now living part time on the Outer Banks, PI is the place to go if you want the best of the best. Casual dining room suits the beach area, food is always top notch and wait staff is knowledgable and friendly. Great sound views only add to the great food. Daily specials usually offer the best value and the freshest local fish available. A must stop for fine dining for your vacation
