I've been staying in Corolla quite a bit lately and I absolutely love it. I've done 4 trips in the last 13 months. I'm partial to Pine Island and Ocean Hill. There's been some chatter among my party lately of trying out a week somewhere from Avon to Hatteras. Honestly, I'm a little on the fence about that idea. Why fix something that isn't broken?

COLINGTON CAFE THE - Anniversary Dinner
My brother and his wife took us here for our 45th Anniversary last night. The She Crab Bisque was excellent. I had the Shrimp and Crabcake Combo - delicious. My wife had the Filet which she really enjoyed. My brother gave thumbs up to his Shrimp and Scallop Tropicale as did my sister-in-law for her Chicken. We all enjoyed the Berry Cobbler with Ice Cream.

Had a wonderful lunch here yesterday. My wife had a Chicken Salad sandwich and I had the BLTC - Bacon, lettuce, tomato and cheese sandwich with a Modelo Especiale. Excellent!

We stopped at Steamers on Tuesday night after a great day at the beach. Great seeing Linda again - we love the new location. Clam Chowder and Shrimp Bisque were excellent. Two had the Wanchese Shrimp Boats, my brother had the Crabcake and I had the Fish Tacos - all were delicious. We also bought a Cheesecake to take home - good for many excellent desserts!

THE PAPER CANOE - Wonderful Meals
Four of us had dinner last night. My brother and I had the Corvina over Cous Cous with a delicious sauce, my sister-in-law had the Fried Chicken with Potatoes Au Gratin and my wife had the Roasted Duck in a Red Wine Sauce and Wild Rice - all four meals were excellent. The Key Lime Pie and Berry Cobbler with Vanilla Custard were also grand!

OCEANA'S BISTRO - 1st time trying
We have been to Avon for many years and have never had the opportunity to come here. We arrived at 630 on a Friday evening and had to wait 20 mins for our table. We were seated and had some local brews and placed our order. Blackened Red snapper and fried Red drum were awesome! Another entree of blackened salmon was equally tasty! Grilled Flounder and a bacon cheeseburger rounded out our orders.... [Read Full Review]
