Located just off the Boardwalk, this is a fun spot to drop in for delicious fish tacos. It's dining outdoors on picnic tables under umbrellas or at the funky bar. Great place to bring the kids and strollers.

The food is average but a nice spot at the Duck Waterfront in Outerbanks. The margarita I ordered was poured out of a large plastic storage can, hardly a margarita as it was all premixed and also did not seem to have Tequila to it. I did not care to ask since I did not want any trouble with my... More

Nice view from outdoor seating. Staff was very attentive. Relaxing atmosphere. Had the fish tacos; they were made with pieces of heavily battered and deep fried fish, no option to have grilled. They were also served with mayonnaise; not really Mexican cuisine.

Enjoyed a sunset meal at the Coastal Cantina on the last night of our summer vacation. All outside seating, and the atmosphere is very casual. Service was fine and the food was pretty good. The Cantina seems to be a very popular place, likely for the views as much as the food. While the food wasn't to die for, we... More

Quesadilla with chicken was excellent and cooked to order. Fish taco was very good according to wife. Service was fast and to the point. This is a good, fast stop on the Duck boardwalk. Crab goes fast here, so get there early. I believe they are owned by the same folks who own Coastal Cravings.

We sat at the bar and enjoyed fish and duck tacos as we listened to the live music and watched the sunset. Even though they did not have our usual beer and wine we still loved the experience. The live band was great and we will return. Next time hoping to drink Blue Moon, Heineken and Chardonnay.

Food was good and plentiful. The outdoor seating, kind of hot. Music, good but loud. Burrito - both chicken and beef were wrapped well....it was.so large it could have been spilt. I got a take away box (recycle friendly...great thing). Hubby had the fish taco (fried) he loved it. Daughter got the quesadilla she enjoyed it as well. Service was... More

On our OBX vacation our group of 10 with 4 children under 6 are always in search of a restaurant - play area This is it. On a boardwalk over the sound. Small but very nice with live music in the summer. The food was good and quick. Very friendly owners and servers

We went around dinner time.. There was a line out the door.. The servers seemed flustered with a line.. They messed our order up and the server actually got a little attitude when they brought the good out, and I let her know something was missing.. BUT.. The food was amazing!! Made it worth it.. Fish tacos were the hit... More
