A Nice Meal

When we arrived, we were a bit concerned about the crowd and the speakers for the live music on the front porch were blaring at the entry way. But once we got in the door, we were pleased to discover it was much more quiet and they were able to seat us right away since it just the two of... read more

This is the third time we have eaten here over the years and Mike Dianna's never disappoints. We ate here with a group of fifteen people on vacation (including many kids) and we all had a phenomenal meal. Steaks are perfect, seafood is delicious, fun, creative drinks, many craft beers, awesome wine list, desserts that are worth every calorie (the... More

After driving all day, we just wanted to get something to eat and relax. The desk guy at the inn where we are staying recommended a restaurant, so we went and there was a 2 1/2 hour wait. Obviously, no way...we were doing that. Mike Dianna's Grill Room was in a complex with a lot of little shops, ice cream... More

We had an amazing meal here. It is a bit pricey, but the service was excellent & the food was amazing. I highly recommend this place & I will visit there, again.

If you go any night of the week, expect to have very little conversation without shouting. We could barely hear the waitress (who was terrific)... she had to stand in between tables and shout. We had a family party of 8, from 20 somethings to 70s. Aside from the ability to talk to family, the food was very good and... More

We waited a very long time to get served & waited longer to get our food. The diet Pepsi tasted horrible - the kids thought it had root beer mixed with it. I could not finish the glass. Crab cakes were good but don't waste your money on entree. I got the entree and my sister got the sandwhich. Her... More

Food was amazing and so was the service. We had a large group yet the service was quick and pleasant. If we are ever back in OBX this will be the first place we go.

We were looking for a good seafood place in Corolla and saw some great reviews on Trip Advisor. As no menu could be found online, once arriving we found the menu un-impressive with the usual crab/salmon cakes and steaks. Nothing unique or special. The worst thing was that two specially drinks cost more than my meal. Restaurant location being on... More

We felt that the drinks were overpriced, and the food was on the high side as well. Good service, but experience was not what we expected, based on reviews. $14.00 for an average drink with unremarkable ingredients. Keep looking...

The food was good, the atmosphere was good, the drinks were outrageously overpriced. 14.99 for a drink was sticker shock when the bill came. This was for a drink with top shelf gin but mixed with cucumber and simple syrup. Go for food but not a drink.
