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.

We had the good fortune of visiting Route 12 for lunch a couple of times on a recent family vacation. First, the restaurant was extremely accommodating for our daughter's peanut allergy. The restaurant only has one item containing peanuts on its menu and the peanut sauce for that item is maintained separately. The kids menu was appropriate and our kids... More

My 9 yr old son and I stopped in for lunch last week while my daughter got a hair weave. It was my boy's first oyster endeavor. We discussed getting the steamed but played safe and he had a fried oyster sandwich (special)-and devoured it. I had a dozen James River raw-plump and tasty. Our bartender/server Jodie was top rate.... More

First visit to OBX - Very clean and great food. My husband is allergic to shellfish and they were very accommodating with the cooking method. Highly recommend.

The steak and shrimp dinner is always good. Good location, vibe and staff. One of the restaurants that we always eat at during our annual Labor Day week vacation in the Outer Banks.

I agree with other reviewers, by the name and look of the exterior I thought this would just be an overpriced place with mediocre food. But my niece wanted to go here for her birthday so off we went. What a nice surprise, great food, service, atmosphere. I had the filet and lobster tail, so hard to be dissatisfied with... More

Seafood was a bit over cooked and dried out. Good service and a nice place inside. Better places for seafood nearby.

We almost didn't eat here because it doesn't look like much on the outside but let me tell you the food/seafood is awesome! We will definitely eat here again! Give it a try!

Ever been to a hole in the wall where it served just your average food? This is another one of those. The workers were just standing around doing nothing, my drink was dry 3 times each time 5-10 mins without a refill. The only person working was the bartender which I think was the owner, but no one seemed to... More
