Went for lunch. Prices the same as dinner and way too high. Purchased fish basket, chicken sandwich, one sweet tea and a strawberry daiquiri. There were 2 small pieces of fish with fries in the basket and slaw. The chicken sandwich was good but fell apart. The daiquiri tasted like a strawberry slushy-- could not taste any rum. The cost...

My friend and I stopped here for some dinner and decided to split the Mariner's Platter. That was a wise decision on our part. The serving is HUGE but it was probably the best seafood we've eaten. My friend always likes to have tartar sauce with his fish but this meal was so good, he decided the fish didn't need... More

We easily got a table for 10 and orders were taken right away, which was good with a toddler and starving adults. We were thrown though that the menu did not offer lunch specials we had studied on the website, causing me at least to change my mind. I wanted just a lunch-size fried shrimp basket. Not available. So I... More

One of our favorite experiences during our trip to OBX was visiting Dirty Dicks for dinner. Infact, it was so good we went back again the next night. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is clean and fun, and service was unbeatable. Our server Nick made us feel not only welcomed, but we went away feeling like we just made... More

We stopped here on a whim with two starving kiddos after climbing the Cape Hatteras lighthouse. The portions are ENORMOUS! I wish I had read more reviews earlier so we could have shared plates. It seems pricey, but with the amount you're given, it's worth it. Seriously - share plates unless you're just starving! The hushpuppies are some of the... More

My family sat and read reviews of this restaurant on Google and Trip Advisor. It was a 50/50 chance of either good or bad. We tossed a coin. At first it appeared that the staff were not on the same page as far as the early bird appetizers and where you must sit to order them. Finally, with a alcoholic... More

Stopped in here for lunch today with my husband and mom. I ordered the Planet Burger and WOW, talk about a huge burger. My husband had some kind of seafood pasta combo and my mom had the lunch special which was a swordfish sandwich. We also ordered appetizers - gator bites and fried pickles. Everything we ordered was great. There... More
