Very good seafood

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

We stood at the bar until a table opened up for lunch. The bartender was prompt and accommodating and moved with us to the table. We shared a shrimp appetizer that was fresh and tasty and not too spicy. My wife loved the Jumbo Lump Crab Cake. They were out of the game fish for the taco; so I had... More

North Banks is hidden in the back of Tim Buck II shopping center. The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff were great! We had wonderful service and the food was great. I recommend the steam spiced shrimp and the cold beer. My husband had the panko crusted shrimp that were wonderful too. Everything was cooked perfectly. We will definitely be... More

I'm always visiting the area in the winter and never miss an opportunity to visit my favorite store Mustang Sally's. I primarily stay in the Nags head area but always make a stop in Corrolla. This restaurant is a must stop for me and my husband. The food is excellect.

We were referred to this restaurant by someone at Currituck Golf Club. He was so right! It was excellent! We all had seafood except for our kids who had pasta. The seafood platter was amazing! Flavorful and the portions were huge! Our 13 year old ordered an adult portion of pasta and had a ton left over. Seating wasn't a... More

North Banks has been a fave for years -- probably 15-20 visits annually since we have a second home nearby. Always find a warm welcome and some great specials. Never a bad meal -- but some offerings have prompted us to usually go with them. The Grenades appetizer is one of the best starters anywhere. Great flavors, well presented. The... More
