Not a place to come with kids - bar is right in the middle of the dining room with people swearing and yelling. Food was good but overpriced.

We stopped at Fishbones for lunch on our way to Corolla. We were traveling with a dog and learned that you can order carry out food from Fishbones and then eat it with your pet outside on a nearby picnic table. This was great as we have yet to discover many pet friendly restaurants. Unfortunately, ordering carry out was very... More

My husband and I stopped in for lunch and I was pleasantly surprised. At first glance I was a little nervous because there were only a few people there. But we decided to stay and give it a shot. The food was excellent, although we had to wait a bit to actually get it. I would recommend for the food... More

The waiter was ok. food was ok. nothing special. the best part was the view of the sound. I don't think I will be back. It appears the place rather be a bar.

We come to the OBX once a year and used to enjoy this place. It has gone downhill. We stopped in and were seated for dinner. The place was nearly empty - one table of diners and a couple of barstools occupied, the rest empty. It was early dinner - maybe 5:45ish. We sat and perused the menu to find... More

By far the most affordable place we ate at in Duck and it matched the food/service. The night we went they were short staffed (no hostess or bartender) however the waitress wasn't exactly motivated to provide speedy service. The place seems to be more geared toward drinkers with specialty glasses geared toward a multitude of tropical drinks. My son was... More

Where do I begin?! As soon we walk in we come face to face with what should be a hostess counter but honestly I thought we just walked in a staff entrance. We follow the wall down to the dining area. We stand there waiting to be seated as their sign says. Waitresses look at us and even walk right... More

we have been coming here for years, with little problem. tonite, however, was a different experience. the restaurant was terrible, basically a complete and total failure. the oysters were beyond disgusting, putrid, almost beyond explanation on the taste. frankly, they should never have been put on the plate, the kitchen staff should absolutely have recognized that these were bad. my...

You could take a sunset cruise on a pontoon for two hours and anyone over the age of 18 can drive the boat. you go out to the bridge which is ten miles away from where you start. You can also get an appetizer for the boat ride. After the boat ride you get seated at a table and waited... More

The food was horrid and too many drunk people at the bar. I ordered a dish with mango salsa and neither mango or salsa was on the plate. My wife's order was inedible.It is almost seemed like the drunk people may have been cooking. This is the first review I have ever posted, but I felt compelled to let folks... More
