Awesome food and great customer service. We visit the outer banks every year for a week and always plan a least two dinners at North banks. The food is always good and the staff are so friendly. We would highly recommend.

The steamed shrimp is perfect and every dinner was excellent. Drinks were awesome as well. I like meeting locals and other travellers. We waited a... More

This is a very small restaurant located in the Tim Buck II shopping center. We ordered the crap grenades appetizer which was so good we should have ordered more. My husband ordered the fried sampler platter and I had the caesar salad with a skewer of grilled shrimp. We enjoyed all of our food and would go back again if... More

North Banks has been a stop of ours for a couple years now. Yes, it is small and cozy, but we always manage to get seated pretty quickly, and have good service. The family loves the steamer combo plate, but really everything is good. I've had the tuna, and the broiled crab cakes and both were delicious. The raw bar... More

Recently ate here with my wife and we had a blast. We started with some Blue Point Oysters and their Crab Grenades. The server recommended those and I think it was my favorite appetizer...ANYWHERE!! Next I had the Filet and Lobster Tail dinner and my wife had the fresh Grouper special. Both meals were on point! Best meals we had... More

It's a cozy place, very un-assuming, but the service and food are fantastic! You will have to wait awhile to get a table, but it's worth the wait! We had the same waitress two... More
