Good seafood, delicious crab but if you have a picky eater it is hard to find something on the menu to suit.. Clean and helpful staff. A little pricy but it is expensive at all the restaurants in the outer banks.

Try one of the platters with all different types of seafood if you're really hungry! The service was great, the sweet tea was perfect, and the fish, shrimp, crab cakes, and chowder were tasty.

We make it to Dirty Dick's Crab House every OBX trip! The food has always been great, and that's why we keep going back. The staff is so friendly, efficient, and they all work very hard.

While visiting the Outerbanks we stopped in at Dirty Dicks crab house. The food was delicious and we all enjoyed it. The only downside was when the check came it was fairly pricy. All in all we enjoyed and would most likely go back again.

The billboard ads along the way catches your attention. The food was okay but the staff was not very friendly. The waitress seemed to force a smile and there was a lot of gathering in the kitchen that you can see from the dining area. They were open when other restaurants in the area were closed so our choices were... More

We ordered Shrimp/Scallop/Lobster kabobs. The plate was very small, but it have to be for two people. I ordered other plate Creole stuffed crabs for one people, but plate had the same size. So, all dishes have small size and it is very expensive.

Showed up late with a gang of seven, Seated immediately with a friendly smile. Was told the specials and took our drink order and appetizer right away. They came quickly and were fresh and hot. Food was good but not great. They were out of a lot of crab and choice was limited. Price for crab was high, but it... More

I went here with my GF on our first night in the OBX. I have been to DD before and liked the food and value. This time was no exception. My GF and I split a seafood platter for 2 which had a little of all the seafood they offer. Everything was very good with plenty to fill both of... More
