Today, the best waterfront restaurant Morehead City NC wants to bring you a cocktail guide to learn a bit more about the delicious drinks made right behind our bar! Read on to learn more about how we craft our favorite cocktails!

Blue Marlin

Don’t have a blue Christmas, have a Blue Marlin! One of our all-time best sellers is the Blue Marlin, in homage to the Big Rock Tournament that occurs annually right off of our Morehead City waterfront just steps away from Sugarloaf Deli and Yellowfin Pub! Our bartenders start this drink off with citrus vodka, to add a kick of pucker. Next, freshly squeezed lime juice freshen up the drink and add a truly tropical taste. Finally, Blue Curacao is added, which is responsible for the drink’s ocean blue hue.

This drink is perfectly paired with our Shrimp Burrito! Stuffed with freshly caught shrimp, black bean paste, rice, fresh avocado, homemade pico, and avocado poblano dressing, this burrito is just as flavorful as the Blue Marlin, with a personality to match!

Mango Tango

It may be winter, but our bartenders can bring the taste of summer right to your table! The Mango Tango starts with a base of mango rum. Next, we muddle fresh lemon for a punch of pucker and add cranberry and pineapple juice to sweeten the flavor palette. Looking to pair with a menu item? We’ve got an off-the-hook recommendation.

Try the Mango Tango paired with our fresh Tuna Poki Nachos! Piled high with diced sashimi yellowfin, fresh avocado pico, and topped with seaweed and chipotle aioli, these nachos aren’t your average bite. Try it out for yourself and let us know your thoughts!


When at our waterfront restaurant Morehead City NC, the Mermaid cocktail is a must. mixed with spiced rum, coconut rum, and pineapple juice, this cocktail is simple yet satisfying. There’s nothing like heading off of the sound and stopping at Sugarloaf Deli and Yellowfin Pub for a Mermaid! If you’re going to order the Mermaid, it’s only natural to stick with the seafood theme.

We recommend the Oyster basket, made your way, along with one of our delicious side items! If oysters aren’t your taste, we know another option that might be just what you are looking for! Our Soft Crab Basket is caught fresh in North Carolina and served right to your table.
