Waited for almost 2 hours only to notice the hostess sitting people that came after us. Another lady told me same thing happened to her. I confronted hostess nicely and she was very rude. Then told me I was next but it will be another 45 min. Very Unprofessional behavior. Take your Business around Corner to Mike and Dianne's Restaurant.... More

We were fortunate enough to get to go out for a seafood/steak dinner while in Corolla, NC, last week on vacation. All 11 of us LOVED the North Banks restaurant. It was a bit noisey but the food was FABULOUS!!! I had the best lobster tail I've ever had (and I've had Maine lobster before!). Our waitress was delightful and... More

Nothing special, just average seafood, however service was pretty good. Flounder lacked seasoning, pasta was good, blackened tuna was ok as it could have used more seasoning (better can be found further south in Nags Head). I would probably try another restaurant if I return to Corolla next year.

We loved this restaurant! Great food. Great service. We had the tuna bites appetizer, the yellowfin tuna entree and a seafood pasta special. Nothing could have been any better! Super fresh seafood!

My family waited for over an hour and a half and we were very disappointed. This is more bar and alcohol focused. Very small seating area to eat. Call ahead seating not allowed nor is advance reservation. Go elsewhere.

My husband and I visited this restaurant several times when we stayed in Corolla over 5 years ago. We returned to the Outer Banks and couldn't wait to share our experience with our children. We were sat at a great table. The drinks and food was fantastic- virgin mango coladas for our boys, amazing scallops and chicken sandwiches along with... More

We ate at North Banks 3 times last week. Great Atmosphere, Friendly Staff, Huge Delicious Portions that are fairly priced and the bartenders are the best! We will recommend to all our visiting friends and we will be back in August

Northbanks is always our first choice when it comes to dinning out. The bar is always full and exciting, not to mention the charming bartenders. The food here is always worth whatever the wait time may be. Definitely a favorite!

My husband and I went here for a great date night. The place is a bit small but the food was really delicious and it was almost a sleeper. We sat right down and got great Tile Fish. Lots of gluten free options too!
