When we stopped by for a late lunch we didn't know our hosts were going to bring us right back for dinner. The food was good; the tacos are the way to go. Service was slow both times but we were there for sunset the second go around and didn't mind the wait. Very casual and the place to go... More

Margaritas on a sunny deck (sound side), tacos and chips with friends--all for just a few bucks. It is one of my favorite stops on a sunny day. It feels like a secret tucked in with all the clothing and souvenir shops.

My husband and I stopped in for a few drinks and to enjoy the view. We did not order any food but plan on making another visit next time we are down. The atmosphere is casual and romantic with the beautiful view! The staff was friendly! Cool spot in Duck!!

Ate there on a Friday while biking, sat outside on the picnic table in the sun. Had the chicken sandwich with a slice of ham, grilled pineapple and brie - really good!

Perfect setting for a casual lunch/dinner/drink. The food is good and the staff is engaging. It was a little odd that they sold us a margarita that was wayyyyy sweet. We asked for an extra shot of tequila and they said they do not have a liquor license! The waitress did not seem to know what was in the drink.... More

Open during peak season, closes for off season in early October. Wonderful Duck boardwalk location with fantastic Sound side views. Casual atmosphere and good food - a la Mexican style. Had fish tacos with freshly caught wahoo. SUPERB! Pizza with duck confit excellent! Great local brewed beer selection. Not crazy about the chemically tasting frozen margaritas (I would not order...

We visited Coastal Cantina for dinner on a Friday night. It was during off season, the weekend after Labor Day, so it wasn't very busy, but the kitchen was backed up and not moving very quickly. The server did everything he could to speed things up and help us with our dinner and make us comfortable. Even though the food... More
