We saw the review on Diner's Drive Ins and Dives before we went to Duck. The food was just as good as Guy said it would be. We went to Coastal Cravings twice during our stay for the week in October 2014. The first visit was so good, we went back a night or two later. If you like scallops,... More

Ate here twice within one week on visit to Corolla. So good first time we had to return. Second visit are outside. First visit could find it. Tucked next door to a BP station. You won't be disappointed. Seafood best I've had anywhere. Wish there were some where I live. Looking forward to going back next year.

We had taken our dogs for a long walk through Duck along the boardwalk and wanted to have lunch before heading back to our vacation rental. Because we vacation in the off season, not a lot of places are still open, especially those with outside dining that would accommodate our dogs. Cravings did and they were very welcoming to us...

Once again, while visiting the Outer Banks, we made a point to drive to Coastal Cravings. Love their shrimp basket. The shrimp are huge and you get a lot of french fries with them. Ordered a Mixed Green Salad. It was big enough to share with hubby. Excellent Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing. Hubby ordered the Fish and Chips, which consisted of... More

We almost missed finding this restaurant as it is attached to a gas station. Once inside, you would never know, it is a very cute and clean space. I ordered a sampler plate that included lobster tail, scallops, shrimp and wonderfully flavored Mahi. It came with a baked potato, what a treat, they are not on many menus any more.... More

We visited for breakfast. There was nothing special. The food and service were both average. Ok if you need fuel for the body and aren't expecting a gourmet breakfast.

Ate here twice -- first time on the advice of another family that we met where we were staying. Then we went back for breakfast which was wonderful -- I loved my lobster benny -- delicious!

I hate to even review this place because it is so small and next time we might not get in. One of the best places to dine in the area. The food presentation was super and the food wonderful. I will go back every time we are at the beach.

Enjoyed our food, service, and atmosphere. Spicy shrimp and hushpuppies did not disappoint. Outdoor band was fun.

Ate here with some friends for lunch. It took us forever to order because the waitress was making up drinks for the day. When we finally did order and get our food nothing was cooked to temperature. We used to go in at least twice a month but after our last experiance it put a bad taste in our mouth.... More
