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.

The crab patty sandwich was full of crab and tasty when grilled, but could have had a bit more 'spice'. The bun could have been softer, but I'd give it, the service, and beers on tap 4 of 5 stars. The fish and chips looked okay (but were not local). The prices were quite reasonable.

Rt 12 was recommended to us by a Corolla local. Tried it for lunch. Two of us split a dozen raw oysters. Price was right and oysters were above average. Draft beer at $5 for lunch is too expensive--but we were thirsty for one. Went back for dinner two nights later and took a local property owner with us. Oysters... More

Loved the feeling of home. Waiter very friendly and food was tasty. Possibly could have more of an expanded menu...looking for steak...had New York strip.

The people in our group who likes seafood seemed to enjoy their meal. I for one didn't care for the pecan crusted burbon chicken. The chicken was glazed with a dark thick glaze that wasn't tasty. The rice and green bean side dish was extremely bland. So I would stay away from that. The chicken wings on the other hand... More

We are staying in Corolla as we speak. We ventured out to find someone for lunch, and by luck walked into this place. It was an honest to goodness awesome lunch. We had 7 in our party (4 adults, two teenager, one 7 year old) and were seated immediately. The menu offers something for just about anyone, but the quality... More

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.
