Week in the OuterBanks

The restaurant is on the water with beautiful sunset views, service was excellent and the food was outstanding. Well worth the price. They could not have been more accommodating.

Highly recommend. Everything we had was excellent...Canoe salad, fish of the day, shrimp and grits. Excellent selection of craft beers. Tables in bar offer great views of sound and sunset

This is a wonderful restaurant. Fine food but in a somewhat relaxed atmosphere. We ate in the bar and had a terrific meal. It is a bit bustling but in a nice, fun way. Food is delicious, well prepared but not pretentious. Go for the specials, if you can. Also, book in advance to be there for sunset

It the chef recommends it, he/she probably knows best. The shrimp and grits are fantastic! Ravioli has crabmeat added, not inside. The crabcakes are good, but they have a lot of filler... the basil vinegarette dressing on the salad is also delicious. Reservations are required during peak season, and bring sunglassrs during dinner hours prior to sunset.

I wish I knew this the first time I went to this little gem! So, we made reservations for the next night and had a wonderful meal. Our server was attentive but not over bearing. He was very busy, so, the bartender came out and took our drink order. The crap dip appetizer was excellent. I ordered the special which... More

Nice little spot with excellent service. We had reservations & were seated immediately. When the doors opened, it was a steady line to get in. If you didn't have a reservation, forget about trying to dine until later at night. We had several entrees & a pair of wood fired pizzas & crab dip appetizers. All were nicely presented. The...

We had a lovely family dinner at this quaint restaurant. The view of the sunset still burns in my memory, beautiful setting! The food, wine, and service were all wonderful. I appreciate the variety of dishes available along with a good wine list. A great example of delicious food at the beach!

We walked across from the Sanderling for an absolutely wonderful dinner. Our dinner choices were stuffed Shrimp, Shrimp & Grits, Sea Bass, and my Filet. Salad were beautiful and my Key Lime pie was as good as I have ever had. They have a nice bar. The owner and staff were wonderful. Our server was Kim. They are very quick... More

We've been going to the OuterBanks with family for ten years and keep coming back to Paper Canoe. It is the one restaurant that never fails to impress with the selection of fresh local dishes and a great selection of beers. The atmosphere of the restaurant is casual and the views of the water incredible. Looking forward to next year.
