Very friendly service

We had lunch here on a bike ride to Historic Corolla. It was a good time with very friendly service and lots of fun signs on the walls that make you smile and even laugh. The food was good, we had the burrito and tequila chicken and shrimp. It was a cool dark place to take a break and relax... read more

Good food that is a combination of Mexican and Seafood. The crab cake sandwich was very good as was the Margarita. Staff was very friendly and patient - especially since we had three busy children.

On our last evening at the beach, our group of 13 decided to have dinner at Carolina Catina because it was nearby and had great reviews on TripAdvisor. We were seated outdoors but the sun was beating down on us. We were told we could eat inside by a waitress only to find out the long table was already promised... More

The food here is really good, but our waitress was overly helpful and would be a reason to come back. Come early because the seating is limited.

We decided to go there for lunch after touring the Light House it's just across the street. I had the fish Tacos and friends had the mahi salad. Everything was great from the service to the food. If it is a nice day sir outside.

We stopped for an early lunch at Corolla Cantina. We try to stop there whenever we are in the Outer Banks. You can eat inside or they have tables set up outside. Our waitress, Morgan, was very friendly and funny. We ordered the chips and guacamole appetizer, the guac was very fresh and the chips were nice and crunchy. For... More

I work in the Corolla Light shopping center and we eat here at least twice per month. The seafood nachos are my new favorite and one serving is enough for 2! Which makes the cost very reasonable. The salads and quesidias are also great too!
