We visit Duck often and try to eat at Fishbones while we're in town. The waitstaff is always friendly and helpful. The food is delicious. The drinks and the sunset view are terrific! Worth stopping by the next time you're in Duck!

Stopped in Duck prior to our check in. Enjoyed some conch chowder, lobster bisque, and an average crab cake sandwhich. Not amazing but it went down well. Wings were way overpriced, avoid them. Not bad for a quick stop but not a must visit when in the OBX.

We stopped in for lunch with out three small children. They loved the special drink cups that you can get the kids drinks in, but I thought they were a bit pricey for drinks. The food was good. It is a small place, but they were not busy when we were there. Would eat there again.

Great location and fun drinks. Spectacular Sunset and bay views and a good variety menu. A little pricy for portion sizes and kids menu could be larger. Service was hit /miss

Fishbones is a fixture in Duck. The seafood is great along with some really good burgers. The bar is a fun place to relax or watch your favorite sports on TV. The service has always been good. it is a nice place to enjoy good NC seafood. Try the clam chowder.

Luv Kelli, the bartender/waitress, she is awesome!!! But when I come in for a cold drink- I don't want sweat to death in 80+degree restaurant !!!!!! Drink should be free just to compensate the sweat!!! Ridiculous and absurd, for the $. I'm paying for ice to keep my drink Luke warm. Owner should be ashamed to expect top pay and... More

Had a great time here. Cold beer, slaw was great. I had pork bbq special, really good and my wife had a shrimp app which she said was good. Waitress was excellent. We had a party of 8 . Enough TV's to keep us sport fans happy. Going again while we stay here.
