Excellent take-out!

I've eaten at most of the popular restaurants around Corolla by now, but never ordered take-out from this very well-known destination. Verdict: very good food, super-fast service and although the prices are a bit on the high side, not so far out of bounds that I wouldn't return for take-out, or to... read more

my husband and I went for dinner and while the place was small and crowded (and noisy) the food and the service was great! we both had evening specials, a pasta dish and rockfish and we couldn't decide which one we liked best. can't wait to return next year!

On our week long vacation we ate here twice and it was excellent. Fish tacos were awesome, raw oysters especially tastey, and great drinks. The Mahi was fresh cooked perfect , loved it.

Intimate seating, yet very dark. The drinks were good and the oysters were fresh. The entrees were worth the price, but the filet mignon was not worthy. Great place to have drinks and an appetizer. Not the place to choose over some of the great restaurants in the area.

We were pointed to this restaurant by our hotel. It is off-season and many places not open. The crowd was young, the noise level pretty high. The food was great. Not a cheap place to eat, but worth the visit. Signature cocktails were also very good.

The North Bank has wonderful fresh seafood. Every night the serve at least two different kinds of oysters, along with shrimp, crab legs, lobster, and clams. They also have specials every day and great beer and wine.

North Banks is one of those places our family has to visit at least once year during our vacation. I don't even look at the menu, everything I need to know is the specials of the day. There's always a gourmet treatment of some fresh off the dock catch and that's what I want. I know we've been coming back... More
