Get the crab cake bites!!

Had a lovely dinner meal and pleasant and attentive server. Yes, it's tucked behind a gas station ( they even share a bathroom), but it's a gem.

Gas station aside (I get that no one cares but you do have to use their bathroom which is gross, so yes it does matter), their food was pretty good but compared to some other local eateries we went to, this one just cannot compare. I'll put it this way, I'm writing this a month later and I can barely... More

Located in a BP GAS station, it would be easy to ignore this little gem. Opened in 2009, this restaurant specializes in fresh seafood, reasonably priced and cooked to perfection. There's a reason Guy Fieri from DDD made a stop here - it rocks flavortown.

On many of our visits to the OBX we will pick up a Lobster Pot and take it home for dinner. This year on our way in we decided to stop by Cravings for lunch. The atmosphere is fun, the food is fabulous, and one of best Bloody Mary's I've ever had, garnished with a crab ball, a hash browned... More

We stopped in for bloody Mary's for breakfast and decided this was where we wanted to spend our last day of vacation for dinner. There was a small jazz band (which was great!) and the food - I really cant describe how great it was!! This is absolutely a MUST TRY

Stopped by for lunch as we biked around the various shops throughout Duck. Very good sandwiches and service. Very casual and relaxed. Decent prices.

Unadvertised restaurant we found that has great quality. Our waitress was very friendly, not pushy, food was very fresh. Probably the best roast beef sandwich I have ever had with amazing french fries. A large selection of draft beers .

Our fist night in Duck we tried Coastal Cravings. Its a surprisingly delightful and small restaurant tucked in behind a gas station. The food was awesome. We tried shrimp, scallops and filet mignon. Everyone loved their food. There were a few server mishaps where an appetizer was not served, two ladies were charged for a bottle of wine instead of... More

For several years this former fast food restaurant in a gas station parking lot was nothing special. Then Cravings took over the facility and maximized the offerings for all meals. We had a wonderful lunch with their Ultimate BLT, made with the best Pepper Bacon, L and T along with alarge portion of Brie cheese and home baked Ciabatta bread... More
