The swordfish and crabcakes were wonderful here. Top notch service matched with high quality food with proper presentation. Prices are higher than most, but its worth it!

Your pick - outside on their deck, sometimes with live music-for a casual feel, or inside in the dining room for a great meal and good service. Try the crabcakes - they are great!

Mike Dianna's restaurant suffers from too much noise, tables very close together, less than attentive service, but offers a wide range of steak selections. They do honor reservations, and have other choices on their menu. Since they always seem to be crowded, I may be in the minority in my opinion.

We were staying in Hatteras and they kicked us out for the Hurricane. We got a room in Corolla and found Mike and Dianna's grill and what a good find it was. I had their steak for dinner and wow it was a very good steak. I have ate at many restaurants and this steak ranks up at the top.... More

We were a family of six (small by many OBX house rental standards,) and had no reservation. Every restaurant we tried informed us they were running close to an hour-long wait. We called Mike Dianna's and the hostess had a table ready in 15 minutes. The restaurant has many large tables so is convenient for large groups. But best of... More

Went there with 1 other adult and 4 children. Had very good food with steaks all round (kids menu steak kabobs were good). Service was friendly and good if sometimes a little fast on the food (we're European so prefer longer meal times so perhaps that is not typical). The atmosphere was good too and not just for 'fmailies'. I'd... More

Met the chef and owner, mike, who cooked for us on a private restaurant tour. The food he cooked for us was so good and he was so nice we went back for more the next day. Menu changes daily and everything is fresh and made from scratch. He uses local seafood and makes very tasty dishes. He also serves... More

The staff (waiters, waitresses, manager and bartenders)... More

While vacationing in OBX early May, a friend of ours suggested checking out the Grill Room. Tucked away behind the Timbuck II shopping center and nestled next to a mini golf course and go-cart race track, it looked like it was going to be just another rowdy local bar/restaurant. We stopped in with another couple for dinner and we were... More

We went to this restaurant our last night in OBX. We had never been there before. The prices are high which worried me at first but after I took one bite of my filet I understood. It was the best steak I think I've ever had. They had 5 different butters that you could have on your steak if you... More
