Capt'n Rolo himself has been on Hatteras Island for 30 years, and has had his own place for half a dozen. Once pretty much a sandwich shop, his menu has increased and this has become one of our favorite restaurants on the southern Outer Banks - simple, unfussy, excellent food, good portions, friendly waitstaff, and for those who drink (I...

I wish I could say something about the food, but we didn't even get that far. We walked in around 8:45 (they close at 9:00). My husband was trying to be considerate (we understand that it's difficult on restaurant employees when people walk in the door right before they close), so he walked in and had a seat. (There was...

The crab cake sandwitch is delicious. You can have fresh cut fruits on the side. Also french fries are good.

We had a wonderful dinner at Capt Rolos. I had called at the last minute for seating for 9, and, even though it was Friday night and peak season, they had our table ready and waiting when we arrived. They promptly took drink and meal orders, and had it out to us in no time. They served fabulous food, from... More

After a long day waiting on ferries and the rest of our group deciding to eat on Ocracoke without telling us, we got off the ferry at Hatteras about 8:30pm. While driving up Hwy 12, we were desperately trying to find someplace to eat. Two kids were starving in back, I really think the headaches my husband and I had... More

Nice place, variety on the menu. Orange crushes were great, staff attentive and friendly. I would defiantly go back... Only downfall, they ran out of crab cakes.

We had a restaurant.com certificate and stopped by on a Friday evening about 10 mins before they were set to close. They were very nice and still seated us and gave us a delicious meal. Also no issues with the certificate whatsoever. We had steamed shrimp and raw oysters for appetizers- both were very fresh and good. Then for dinner... More
