New Restaurant in KH, THE PONY AND THE BOAT. Opening in the old Russos space, formerly Good Earth and something else. The signage says Comfort Food. Okay Mac and Cheese plus Hot Dogs. The name doesn't fit billing.

Maybe the owners are Lyle Lovett fans...

And if I had a boat
I'd go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I'd ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
I said me upon my pony on my boat

“ With a name inspired by the famous lyrics of Lyle Lovett, The Pony and The Boat Comfort Kitchen was bound to draw a music-loving crowd.

The new culinary concept by Tommy Karole, owner of The Paper Canoe, is bringing top-notch comfort fare to Kitty Hawk when it opens this fall. From local seafood to hand-carved turkey sandwiches to fried chicken, the restaurant is all about high-quality food prepared simply, and the casual-cool space isn’t too hard on the eyes either.”

From my house I just need to cross the 5 lanes of death and I am there. I was looking at the lack of a sign there just yesterday so that new sign must have gone up in the last day. I was never much of a Goof Life Gourmet fan and I only went to Russo's twice. The area could use another nice place to eat.

When we moved here the restaurant was called Beach Bread Company. The problem I have experienced eating out on the beach is I can go one time and have a great meal then go back and order the same menu item and be disappointed. IMO it all depends on who is the chef at that time of day.

Consistency at places here can vary off the chart and I too hate that. Places like Owens and Salt Box are very consistent while many others are up and down depending on this or that. Some of the best meals I carried out were during the lockout, but then when they got busy again it changed. Thumbs down

Not to hijack, but as I read this, If I had a Boat just came on Sirius XM. I couldn't make this up.

The internet algorithm is taking things too far. It can read your thoughts. LOL. Similar things happen to me. I immediately recognized the name of the restaurant must have been inspired by the song. Can anyone say which MP and road for those of us that don't remember the other restaurants that occupied its space? I'm assuming it's on the bypass?

You are correct. Its on the bypass at MP 4.5. Based on google earth, I'd put it between Trio and The Spot. Their FB page is Click to follow link...

Ok so I looked a little more and found this article about the restaurant Click to follow link...

The Pony and the Boat is owned by the same folks as The Paper Canoe. That’s one of our favorites in Duck.

It is a place I have never eaten before (Paper Canoe) but I hear all good things. I am excited to cross the street in KH and try this place as soon as possible.

If the quality of food is up to The Paper Canoe level then it will be a success. The Paper Canoe is one of our favorite restaurants between the Bonner and Corolla.

I agree Robert! Food is great and the location and view is off the chart. Hope the new place does well!
