While vacationing in Corolla recently my wife and I enjoyed dinner one evening at North Banks. We arrived early evening and we were promptly seated. I need to make note that the beach season was over since it was after Labor Day when we dined here. We enjoyed the evenings specials of Tilefish and Puppy Grouper. Both were prepared to... More

Efficient service. Had chipotle crab dip (good flavor), hush puppies (just ok), and fried onions. For entres:The crab legs were meaty and cooked well. Almost... More

We waited one and a half hours to get in (small place) but the food was really good. Because it is in a kind of shopping area, we were able to occupy the time. Our waiter was nice and did a great job of getting everything out expediently.

Place is small but nice. My wife had the crab cakes and I had the scallops and we shared. They were both up there with the best we've had anywhere. $29.99 for either but well worth it. Had seafood at 3 others places in Corolla and this was the best by far.

My family really enjoyed this restaurant. The kids loved the popcorn shrimp and calamari. My oldest had an excellent fish taco platter - it was fresh, not fried, and tasted great. My wife had a salad with shrimp skewers. I had the fresh tuna sandwich...it was really good. A smaller group of us went back a couple days later (kids... More

North Banks is one of my favorite restaurants in all of OBX. Great seafood including several fresh local catch and some not so local options. There are usually a couple oyster options from around the country. They do offer entrees such as steak and pasta but seafood is what most people come to North Banks to enjoy. There is a... More

For such a small place - this restaurant has a BIG reputation for great food and excellent service. What a great evening we had - even though we ended up seating at the bar since there was an hour wait for a table. I'm glad we decided to sit at the bar. Our server, Brady, was so friendly and had...

The soups and appetizers we tried on multiple visits were all great. We thoroughly enjoyed their fish selections - particularly ahi tuna. The service has been excellent for each meal, we highly recommend this place!!
