One night in early 2005, Sandy and Hallock’s friend, Dave Brumley, came in for dinner on a visit from Raleigh. Dave had been working and managing the Glenwood Grill in Raleigh since 1998. Dave had been contemplating moving to the beach, and Amos Mosquito’s turned out to be the opportunity Dave had been looking for. After a brief discussion the next day, Dave said “yes” to joining the Amos family as a manager and business partner.
Over the years, some things have changed; we’ve seen Hallock and Sandy, to Pam’s delight, have a couple of kids and Dave married Mollie. With her growing family and home life, Hallock stepped down from Executive Chef but still gets in the kitchen as needed, whether as the chef, line cook, or sushi chef. Sandy and Dave continue to team together to run the day to day and night to night sides of the business, and either one or both can be found at the restaurant nearly every night.
Anne Johnson joined the Amos Mosquito’s team as our Sous Chef in the spring of 2020 and was named Executive Chef in March 2021. Anne received her culinary degree at Stratford University in Virginia, graduating Summa Cum Laude and top of her class. Anne executive chefed at the Kenmore Inn in Fredericksburg, Virginia prior to moving to the Crystal Coast with her husband Will Speights.
At Amos Mosquito’s, we always have our eyes AND taste buds on the latest culinary trends, taking those trends and transforming them for our restaurant’s styles. Though we continue to roll and change with the industry’s tide, we remain focused on presenting delicious, only housemade creations while delivering detailed service in a fun environment.
