Very good

Husband and I stopped in for dinner after a recommendation from the local tackle shop and were very happy we did. We both had seafood baskets (shrimp and fish). Both were really great. Also had a wasabi bite appetizer that was the special that was to die for. It is definitely a local hang out... read more

Capt'n Rolo's is a VERY casual restaurant and bar. We have a place nearby and go there often. They serve very good fresh seafood sandwiches and baskets and the beer is always cold. The only criticism is that they use plastic utensils. There's always a crowd of local people at the bar. Service is excellent and very courteous. It's a... More

I loved this place. Friendly service. Amazing food. I had the steamed scallops and they were incredible. We had a great server. She manned the entire place on her own. Quickly received our food and drinks.

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...

The place was about half full when we got there for dinner and soon after we were seated the whole place was filled with a line out the door! Its not fancy but it has a nice... More

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
