we have been visiting the OBX for 10 years and have been to Fishbones at lease 8 times. Being that its a beach type atmosphere we know not to expect 5 star food and service, but its close to the shopping and the food was always OK. Over the past few years though the service has gone down hill, but... More

We have stayed in Duck several times and have eaten/drank at Fishbones at least once each time. That's why we were surprised during our last visit when we were never acknowledged by the bar staff after seating ourselves at the (mostly empty) bar. We waited around 10 minutes - no eye contact from either bartender, no "we'll be right with... More

Got there at 7 and was expecting a wait to begin with which was fine. The host told us 30 minutes. We came back a little after 30 minutes and told us it would be 15 more minutes because something about the kitchen having too much going on. Ok fine. 15 minutes later we sat. We had 1 appetizer for... More

Food was okay. Tv's everywhere. Watched Brazil get crushed in World Cup. Server was prompt and attentive and the bill was average.

Sitting outside on the boardwalk and enjoying the view of the sound , made the meal. Contrary to past reviews, we had a great experience. The waiter was prompt and had a great personality - way to go Shannon! We had our drinks quickly with a smile. The food was good - tried the baked oysters and she crab soup.... More

We went as three couples without kids the night of hurricane Arthur. We didn't want to drive too far. Our waitress was friendly enough I guess. I ordered the steak since i had seafood all week. The sauce was too sweet for my liking and there was a good bit of fat. We ordered a takeout meal for the one... More

We waited 45 minutes for a waitress, even asked a couple times. Still never showed up. We left. People who did have food near us didn't have good things to say about the food. We weren't the only people who waited that long ...

We stopped in for a late dinner. When asked about items on the menu, the waitress' reply, "It's good." Her lack of enthusiasm became understandable when our food arrived. I had the crab cake sandwich - not sure, but it looked a lot like a processed cake that could have come out of a freezer. My tablemate ordered the Caesar... More

My wife and I went for lunch. Our table was on the dock. We sat under an umbrella and enjoy the afternoon.... The service was great! Our waiter fantastic! Friendly, quick and courteous. The food was very good. My wife had the Mojo pork, very flavorful and I had blackened Mahi. We spent the better part of the afternoon there... More
