A Wonderful Retreat: Could See a Wedding Here for Sure!

This weekend we (Grace Community Church - ) held our annual church adult retreat in beautiful Nags Head, N.C. We arrive on a Friday evening and have activities occurring through Sunday afternoon. As is tradition, we hold our daily retreat activities in Pamlico Jack’s Restaurant, 6708 S Croatan Hwy, Nags Head, NC 27959. Pamlico Jack’s is the perfect place for a larger than normal gathering such as ours. The spectacular panoramic view of the Pamlico Sound surrounding us as we gather in the upper room of the restaurant is magnificent. Some piece of the amazing sunset fills each pane of the restaurant windows. The restaurant is large and is right off of the main road (Croatan Hwy) leading into Nags Head. Each year, without fail, we know that our atmosphere, quality of food and service and overall visit here will be exceptional.

Last December plans were made for our retreat we were having this year, 2018. However, due to a change in restaurant event managers, the church’s pastor realized – 2 weeks out - there was a disconnect. Our reserved space for 45 people within Pamlico Jack’s where we’d planned on having our retreat, had been scheduled to someone else. Ugh!!

Hoping to resolve and remedy the double reservation, the Pastor reached out to Maryanne, Pamlico Jack’s new event manager. Upon realizing the mix-up, Mary-Anne quickly righted the error. She ensured that the restaurant space, the planned meal options and the necessary staff to support our event were in place for the original dates we’d scheduled previously.

Mary-Anne, we cannot thank you and Pamlico Jack’s enough for your responsiveness, professionalism, quality of service and amazing food! To our awesome servers - Nick, Emily, Steve, Estella, & Michael, you were the best!! See you next year!!

We hosted our son's rehearsal dinner at Pamlico Jack's. Doug, Steve, and Raven took AMAZING care of us!!!! Our evening at Pamlico Jack's far EXCEEDED my wildest expectations!!!! I cannot tell you, just AWESOME everything was, down to the smallest detail!!! EVERYTHING was PERFECT!!!! The view, the food, the atmosphere, EVERYTHING!!! Doug was absolutely AMAZING!!!!!!! His assuring and calm presence was exactly what I needed, going to our son's wedding weekend!!! I cannot thank him enough for attending to every single detail of our evening!!!! It was FABULOUS!!! Our guests enjoyed themselves and we all stayed the entire evening!! All our guests enjoyed an amazing selection of delicious food, and we all rolled out stuffed!! After all the heartache, of our original venue not able to take care of us, because of unforeseen circumstances, we are BLESSED BEYOND MEASURE, to have had Pamlico Jack's take care of us!!! It was even more beautiful than anything the other venue could have provided for us!!! I cannot say enough wonderful and amazing things about the quality of food, and the service & hospitality. It was beyond outstanding!!! Doug is a joy to work with!!! I would not hesitate, a split nanosecond, to recommend Pamilco Jack's to anyone else!!!

We had our rehearsal dinner here and everything was so amazing! The staff was very attentive and the food was delicious. They worked very closely with my mother-in-law to ensure that everything was perfect. She had a lot of special touches that they helped her put into place and accommodated our every need. In their large dining room, we had full view of the sound which made for very pretty pictures and a comforting environment. I do not think we could have found a better place!
