Great fish tacos. Wonderful crab cake sandwich. Friendly service. Every dish that came out of the kitchen looked good, and everyone eating there was smiling. Great credo to strive to serve fresh, healthful, delicious, food, and drink. Can't wait to return.

As a former resident who went back to visit this past summer I was glad to find that no matter what changes on the island this place hadn't!

A friend raved about Buxton Munch so we decided to give it a try after another local favorite closed abruptly in the middle of lunch hour. The food was plentiful and fantastic! Worth the wait! The decor is Surfy and it couldn't be more fun!

By far the best food I had in the OBX area!. Staff was pleasant, atmosphere was hippish. Great music selection, but the menu was great. I just had to have the crabby patties, very tasty. The fish taco was the best seafood we had on our vacation!

There doesn't seem to be anything overwhelmingly delicious in a fried shrimp and guacamole wrap, but when the guacamole is fresh, the SHRIMP are fresh and lightly fried, and the wrap is cheddar, it jumps above average. The substantial wrap was delicious, and the pear smoothie (pear, vanilla yogurt, honey, from what I recall) was exquisite. Not too sweet, definitely... More
