Great pizza and we were able to sit on patio

Pizza was really great, we ate lunch there as soon as we arrived at the beach on Saturday. Kids loved the pizza. I got hummus it was good but coved in onions/pico that I didn't know about :( they are not open in the evening.

My husband I went to Wave Pizza with another adult couple on vacation in OBX. The pizza was great and they had veggie options as well which I loved. So many tasty local and regional beers which the boys loved. The live music was super fun too, the band was laid back and cool. And of course there's the sunset... More

We chose Wave Pizza because it was close and the pizza sounded good, so we took a chance and ordered it. It was great ! Perfect crust, generous toppings, and it was relatively inexpensive compared to other places to eat. We chose three different 16" pizzas, and all of them were delicious. The staff was friendly and efficient, and the... More

Much better pizza than we expected. Fast service with lots of options for toppings. Beware, their large pizza is rather small - 16".

Wave Pizza is located on the boardwalk and has very easy access. Order the pizza, stay and eat or take it out to the boardwalk and find a bench. Tasty and easy.

Fresh ingredients, craft beer, friendly staff and great views! Be prepared to wait an hour or so on a weekend night, but worth it and nice area to walk around. A must for a summer beach trip!

I come here all the time, multiple times a week actually. This place is awesome. The people are super friendly and the pizza is delicious. You also can't ask for a better location. Super cool stuff

It's always tough to find a truly good place to eat at the beach. Too often restaurants at beach resorts know they have a captive audience so they don't try hard. WavePizza isn't a spot like that. It's located on the Duck Boardwalk which is gorgeous (total bonus) but its vibe smacks of local spot that the residents trust. And... More

There's a bigger chain but it's pan pizza. This was thin crust but it was somewhat doughy. I prefer the New Haven style ultra thin crust so it was OK. Sauce was not outstanding. They were able to crank them out quickly at dinner time, though. Very friendly and no mistakes on our large order.
