Disappointing

We had lunch at Fishbones. Be forewarned there is one bathroom shared by all and not pleasant. The food was very mediocre and service was slow. We had grouper and crab cakes. I make better at home. I doubt we will return.

We stopped here for lunch before our check in. I had a Tuna steak sandwich and it was delicious. They asked how I wanted it cooked which I was never asked for Tuna. I highly recommend this place for the food, drinks and views.

Visited 8/6/15 with family of 8. Had gotten take out a few days prior and knew food was good. When we arrived we were told their was an hour wait but we were truly the only people waiting. I was confused. Then the host said we could order take out and sit at the picnic tables outside but there would... More

We found this little spot completely by accident when we first arrived in Duck. We were starving and wanted some adult beverages. The sandwiches here are awesome and a good value. You could easily share a meal between two adults. The staff at Fishbones were very friendly and attentive. We ended up visiting three times during our week in the... More

Sat at the bar while my girls shopped at Scarborough Faire and Lane. Had a few drinks and decided to try the blackened tuna tacos. They were amazing! Haven't had such great fish tacos since I was in Key West last year. The tuna was so fresh and the sauce they used was spicy but not too hot that you... More

2nd floor seating looking over the sound was fabulous. She crab soup was good, calamari and oysters were so so. Grilled shrimp with salad was outstanding and service was great.

Tried to like this place for the better part of 20 years but all I can say is "overpriced, horrible service and sub par food". Hostess walked past my family three times tonight and wouldn't even acknowledge our presence. This was a blessing in disguise because I would be regretting spending one more cent at this place or their sister... More

I would highly recommend that nobody ever eat at this place. Terrible food and service and even worse management. All around terrible experience

Used to be great a few years ago, now food was greasy and oily. Not going back. We used to drive miles out of our way to eat here often several times during our stay. Place has changed.

This place is a trip!! Came here with my friends and when we saw that we could get cocktails in mugs that we could keep, we knew we would have a great time! Not to mention the nice wait staff and comfortable atmosphere. Back to the mugs, we almost wanted to start a collection! They were $10 a piece which... More
