Eh

We ate here late August. Place ia small. The service was ok, the food was decent, prices too high and the presentation terrible. Felt like Mc Donalds had a better atmosphere

Don't judge a book by it's cover- it can easily be mistaken for a gas station, and please don't let that deter you. when you walk inside the floorplan is open, clean, and well lit. The staff is courteous and it is one of the few places that caters to large parties. I highly recommend the seafood bloody mary- and... More

Ignored all of the negative reviews, and decided try dinner with a party of 10. Service was attentive, including drink refills etc. Food was tasty, a mix of seafood and steaks. The standout was the baked salmon. All in all a good meal, a good value.

Our group of 13 adults and 10 kids showed up an hour before closing time after we got shunned from the restaurant right across from this place. The staff was warm and friendly and the food was great! Would go back again in heartbeat!

Spent the week in Corolla for a family reunion. Decided to get to out of the house for a nice dinner that was close and didn't require me to get stuck in the Route 12 traffic. Big mistake. The service at Route 12 Steak & Seafood was unimpressive. Our wait staff came by less frequent than a blue moon. We... More

The food was really good. The staff was helpful and responsive. Nothing to write home about, but a good place to eat with friends

Food had no taste and extremely overpriced. We had the calamari and all the places I have been to they always put the sauce on the side but this one for some reason decided to put it under the calamari, why??? My kids don't like the sauce! Guess what? They didn't eat it. I wasn't too hungry so I ordered... More

We have eaten at this restaurant pretty much every time we have come to OBX - probably 6 or 7 times and it has become kind of a tradition. After our last visit we are taking it off our list. It is not horrible, but not great either. It is very loud for one thing. Also, we made a reservation,... More

Every trip to OBX starts with lunch at Route 12. The menu is small, wish they offered their breakfast menu all day. Service is slow but they are good at keeping the drinks coming while you wait. We had small kids with us who got bored so we took turns waiting for the food and taking the kids outside to... More
