great fish tacos

They served mahi mahi and wahoo fish tacos and though they may seem deceptively small, coming 2 per serving, they were very filling and very delicious. You could sit at the bar or on the deck and look out at the Carolina Sound. It was our first visit there even though our relatives have been there... read more

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

I had the best fish tacos I ever ate in my life and OMG the jicama slaw was to die for! I seriously could have had a monster bowl of slaw and an ice cold beer and called it dinner. The homemade salsa was also really good but the guac was so-so. Go to OBX and stay in Duck all... More

Went to this place on a whim while on vacation in OBX. The location is easy to compliment, but our waitress was very down to earth and took time to talk to my 3 year old. Food was excellent and prices were good. Cold beers and good salsa. Burritos bigger than Chipotle. No joke. Cant wait to come back.

Be aware that this is outdoor dining. That being said the view is great, the fish tacos are fantastic, service was friendly and the beer is cold. Can't ask for much more.

Hard to find but worth the search. Amazing mahi tacos. Waterfront dining outdoor overlooking the sound.
