Lived up to the hype!

We have been wanting to try this restaurant for years and never seem to figure out how to avoid the very long wait that develops (no reservations). This year we went on a Monday night and that did the trick! Right now they have live music 7 days a week which is a huge plus but expect very long... read more

Great food and wonderful wait staff. Felt homey and very friendly. I so enjoyed my breakfast sandwich I went back to additional times for more.

We went to Cravings for breakfast on our first day of vacation. The sandwiches were good, service was fast and accommodating (we had a big group that took up three booths). It's a small place with seating inside and out, but even as busy as they were - the staff was friendly and attentive. My husband had a bloody mary,... More

Oh my, we waited an hour for a table at this tiny establishment, BUT it was soooo worth it! Everything was so delicious! The waitresses were very friendly & efficient, also. We ordered a crab dip appetizer, yummy! The warm bread they brought out first was first-rate! For my main dish I ordered the pan seared scallops . . .... More

The service was great, the meal really hit me. I had the Chicken Alfrado (you can sub crab alfrado). The pasta was well coked and the chicken was perfect. Guy from Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, was here and I got a shirt. This place is the best on the Outer Banks.

Each year we come to the Outer Banks we have at least one dinner at Cravings. Snow crab legs and fried shrimp dinners were good. My swordfish special was good. The kids chicken fingers and fries was average. The place is very small so waits are common. There are tables outside with live music. Service was good. Don't be turned... More

Can't wait to go back. Their burgers were huge, juicy and delicious. Bacon was thick and a perfect addition to my burger. Stopped in for lunch on the way out of town. Server/bartender was great.

We visited Cravings last year for the first time and couldn't be more impressed with everything we ordered. We couldn't wait to return for the same experience but were sadly disappointed. We ordered 5 different dishes and only the fish tacos impressed. My fried fish (fish and chips) were so thin and ordinary tasting. My daughter ordered the chicken wrap... More

I am shocked by the bad reviews for this restaurant! We arrived around 7 on a Monday night with 11 people. We were seated outside within 30 mins. It was a beautiful night and live music was being played on the patio. We sampled several beers and ordered the hush puppies, mini crab cakes and crab dip for appetizers. Everything... More
