Great!

We love this place. When we were billing our home, they really took care of us ad we would get in late on a Friday and they would always fix us cheeseburgers. Thanks Steven. Shrimp Gaboroni (sp) are fab. Great steaks and daily lunches. Always consistent.

My husband and I decided order some take out for lunch and decided on the crab cake sandwiches. They were huge and delicious. It also came with some homemade tarter sauce and potato salad which were both delicious as well. I can not wait to go back next year!

We walked into this place for dinner. There were only 2 people at the bar and a family of 4 at another table. It took some time for us to get a menu. Then our drink order was taken and we opened the menu. Nothing in there was under $30. We left before our drinks were even brought to the... More

This was our and last experience at Route 12. Honestly I only remember two things. The crab bisque was watery and possibly a crab ran through it but I couldn't swear to. It. The second thing I remember is the noise level. I'm very sensitive to audible and this was A nightmare for me.

This was a very disappointing meal. The oysters on the half shell I was served were dry, shriveled and contained an unusually high number of chunks of shell. I am accustomed to some shell (it goes with the territory) but I am not used to finding large chunks of shell. We ordered an assortment of appetizers for the table all... More

My wife and I recently while vacationing in Corolla, had the good fortune of enjoying breakfast at Route 12 located in TimBuck II. We enjoyed pancakes and eggs, bacon ( really tasty and fried just right ) along with the best oven roasted potatoes I've ever had. The meals were delicious. If your vacationing in the area, then this is... More

Nothing fancy, but decent food and service. We had reservations for 8 o'clock but we were in the area at 6:30 and stopped in and they accommodated us as they were not busy (Friday night). Location is good. Lots to see and do within walking distance.
