We went on a Tuesday evening post season...and it was packed at 8:00PM Wow, never expected that! We were initially disappointed that we had to dine in the bar, but that disappointment quickly vanished when our great server/bartender "Allison" gave us such fabulous service! The bar itself was a treat, too, a beautiful cedar with clear coat made for a... More

Reservations are a must, we had dinner at 5:30, earlier than we would have liked, but we were able to see a beautiful sunset. Service was excellent and dinner was one of the best on the Outer Banks. Started with the crab dip and lobster ravioli, both very good. Our dinners were excellent. Had the shrimp w/ crabmeat, grilled shrimp... More

We are not visitors to OBX. We live here part time and know most of the restaurants well. After last nights visit, this is now, by far our favorite. Everything was perfect from the warm welcome to the last bite.

I have been to the Outer Banks many times over the years, and have never had such good food. Plentiful portions, but outstanding flavors. Great service too! They really know how to treat you right!

We're foodies who have traveled the world and tonight's experience at The Paper Canoe was exceptional. Our server, Brad, took the time to explain menu items and steer us to his favorites. Everything we had (7 people in our party) for 3 courses was over the top good in flavor, execution and value. The clams appetizer was simply the best... More

My husband, toddler and I dined here tonight. It was so good I didn't want to hesitate to give them an excellent review! I rarely give 5 stars but the Paper Canoe earned it. UNBEATABLE food quality. Our toddler had the mac and cheese. Best I've had out in a looooong time. We had the potsticker app. Amazing. Even the... More

While the Paper Canoe was extremely difficult to get a reservation between the hours of 6 & 9, we were actually given two seats at the bar for our dinner and it proved to be just as gooas getting a table. The bar provides the best view of the sunset and the prettiest picture I took all week. The food... More

We were looking for a dinner with good seafood on our last night in obx. Paper canoe did not disappoint. Upon arrival at 7pm on a Friday, with no reservation, the host was extremely accommodating. He got a table quickly that was well suited for our group of four plus an infant. The welcoming service continued as we met our... More
