Awesome pizza and always great to eat on the water. There is not a lot of places to eat on the water and this is great!! The pizza is wonderful too. We ate here twice for both lunch and dinner.

Pizzas were different (Blackbeard's Revenge -- yum and spicy), fun, and delicious. Great for takeout, but the sound view is great too.

What could be better than hanging out, eating a pizza, drinking a beer, and sitting on the deck watching the paddle-boarders going back and for on the sound? I can't really think of anything either. The pizzas were good, and the wait was a little long, but nothing to get upset about. We visited here several times during our stay... More

Decided to pick up a pie for the little one while the adults indulged in steamer pots for dinner. Ordered a large peperoni and was pleasantly surprised. Good blend of sauce and cheese. NY style crust and overall quite comparable. Adults enjoyed having a slice with the seafood. Took about 20 minutes for take out. They have a number of... More

The pizza here is ok but definitely not worth the wait. We waited over 90 minutes for three pizzas. A huge rain storm came while we were sitting at the tables outside. We went in to get out of the rain and the waitresses cleared all of our drinks. We had to go back in and talk with the staff... More

First let me apologize as I am deeply sorry that we were not able to serve you to your satisfaction. The night you came in we had an unexpected rain storm with strong gusts of horizontal winds. I cleared the vacant tables quickly as everything on the deck was soaked with items blowing off tables. It is my hope that... More

We discovered this place later in the week after ordering not so great pizza from elsewhere. Dine in and enjoy a view of the sound or order out. Pizza took an hour so call early if you want take out during dinner time.

Having been to the Outer Banks numerous times over the past years, I was always surprised at how poor the pizza quality is on the north end of the island. My family and I have tried several but all were pretty poor, until our last visit when we hit the Wave Pizza cafe while out in Duck. Good sauce--not sweet,... More

Been coming to Duck for years and just ran across this pizza restaurant, great pizza, view of the bay and can order a beer or wine. I agree that you have to get here by 5:30

I read a few of the reviews before going to the Outer Banks. The pizza was very good. We also bought the cheesy bread which was good also. I thought the price was better than average for a shore point. I would go back again if I return to Duck. Only down side is expect to wait for your pizza.... More

Best pizza in the area. Even the salads are gourmet with not just lettuce but other greens like arugula and also red onions. The pizza is not greasy,easy to digest which means they use good quality cheese. Go for the fresh tomatoes, ham, and black olives. The best time to go is by 5:30pm the latest, otherwise it gets packed.... More
