Excellent Fish Tacos

Actually, the Wahoo fish tacos are the best I've had (period). Tha Mahi Mahi ones are also great. They're juicy with just the right amount of toppings and sauce. Awesome view of the Currituck sound and lots of shops and things to do.

Other than the view there is really no reason to go here. The food is pathetic, its way overpriced and the service I received was down right rude.

On the northern end of the boardwalk a great place to watch the sunset in the evening and enjoy a frozen margarita. Food is tasty we got the mahi tacos for about 9$. Just a few tables and a bar so don't expect a full restaurant but a nice place for a casual meal.

We had a challenging afternoon trying to find somewhere to eat while driving through Duck on the way back to Nags Head. The Coastal Cantina is located in The Waterfront Shops in Duck, but not where the sign is on the building. It is at the very end (to the left) of the shopping center on the sound. It is... More

We needed a spot for lunch after just arriving to the outer banks and the Coastal Cantina was recommended. I'm vegan, but no one else in my group is. I can't stress enough how casual this place is, with only outdoor seating on plastic picnic tables and a few bar stools. It's situated on a boardwalk and opens up toward... More

We had a couple of refreshing margaritas and some chips and delish salsa. Great place to catch the breezes off the boardwalk, too.

We stop here every time we come to Duck. Best fish tacos I've had. Open til sunset but it's the best day drinking on the sound. Family friendly and you can fly solo as well. Nice place.

We ate here a couple times last week. Burritos were tasty and of good size. Complimentary chips and salsa were also great. Fish tacos were tasty but very small. Looked like two foil wrapped hoho's. The big disappointment was the beer and live music. In years past there has been music a couple of times throughout the week. Now it's... More
