When I go to Hatteras Island and choose "more" under any restaurant it fails.

Thanks for the good work!

Will,
Within the last month the owner of Rusty's Surf and Turf , Buxton, Hatteras Island, announced on FB that he was closing permanently, getting out of the business to perhaps pursue other avenues. I notice the FB page no longer exists (.not a good omen) although the website is still up. Perhaps a local can verify before you mark it closed...and who knows, maybe someone will take over. Shame, we always enjoyed the food there, but time marches on. Just a heads up.

Judy,

I am going to add a button to allow members to flag restaurants as CLOSED. This will be coming soon and will help clean the listings up. Thanks again for your input.

Cheers,
Will

RE: Restaurant Section Is Finished




Will, I love the new restaurant section. I left a new review for Diamond Shoals and got a 404 error when I finished. The review did post though.


RE: Restaurant Section Is Finished




Hatteras Sol Deli & Cafe is now Hatteras Sol Waterside Grill.

Also - Why not delete restaurants that have been closed for a few years?

Will...The Hurricane Mo's listed under Kitty Hawk, which says closed, is the one that used to be in Nags Head at Pirates Cove. If you click on the name, you can see that in the info listed.

It needs to be moved under Nags Head heading as to not be confused with the Hurricane Mo's in Kitty Hawk which is still open.

The location in Kitty Hawk is the Beachside Bar & Grill location.

1718 Brewing is in the old Cafe Atlantic on Ocracoke. My understanding is that they aspire to be a restaurant in the future. Technically it is a brewery today, I think. Beer


RE: Restaurant Section Is Finished




Single Fin OBX at NH is missing. MP 10.5 Japanese Sushi restaurant. Fish


RE: Restaurant Section Is Finished




Hatteras Sol Deli & Cafe is now Hatteras Sol Waterside Grill.

I flagged Hatteras Sol last night.

Will, perhaps you should have a ‘closed but not forgotten ‘ section for those now gone places?


RE: Restaurant Section Is Finished




Could you add a button that changes the name? For example in Southern Shores the Meridian 42 is closed but Steamers is there now. And in Kitty Hawk Argyles is closed but it is still there owned by the same people, but they changed the name to something else (sea Salt) and now back again to Argyles.




RE: Restaurant Section Is Finished




Wow. Managing the restaurant list sounds like a full-time job!

Would like to add:

Pangea Tavern, Avon
La Fogata, Avon
The Point, Buxton
Kat's Deli, Hatteras Village



RE: Restaurant Section Is Finished




FYI - my favorite lunch spot in Manteo was the Hungry Pelican. The restaurant listing is out of date. They moved from the waterfront and are now Budleigh Street.


RE: Restaurant Section Is Finished




Yeah, managing the restaurants is no fun.

But, I promise to get it up to date. Tim - I'd love to let people update the info themselves, but that can lead to mischief. If you use the form to report it closed, it also allows you to make suggestions to Add and Update.

Thanks for everyone who has taken the time to pitch in! It really makes the job easier.

Cheers,
Will


RE: Restaurant Section Is Finished




I wouldn't allow name changing. Create a new one and mark the old closed. The reviews are pretty much irrelevant after a name change. It's usually a different menu and most likely different people.

"Hire" (for free of course) a couple of active locals to moderate and maintain that section Will. Theeth smiley

RE: Restaurant Section Is Finished




The closed ones could be in smaller print, or relegated to the bottom of the page under a CLOSED header, and no reviews would be needed. Don't know if that helps or not.


RE: Restaurant Section Is Finished




Okay, here's where I am:

+ All the Closed restaurants that have been flagged have been marked closed.

+ All Closed listings have been sorted to the bottom of the list.

+ I am working on other things as well.

Thanks a million for all the help and support. I literally couldn't do it without you.

Cheers,
Will

Correct. They may be experimenting with some food during the winter, but, the plan is to introduce foood in the spring. For now, it’s BYOF.


RE: Restaurant Section Is Finished




Add: Bad Bean Grill and Roosters southern kitchen

Going to be be putting up some reviews for some others we've been to recently.
