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.

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.
