Good food but rustic

A very old fashioned atmosphere and very dark inside. Salmon was very good, homemade bread was perfect. All of our entrees had a nice presentation including an edible flower.

All-You-Can-Eat Crab Legs are huge and sweet. Crab dip appetizer is a must try. Entree portions are plentiful, fresh and well seasoned. Request Brian; he's the best waiter ever.

Always our favorite eating place whenever we vacation in Nags Head. The value is great and the food is always great. Service is also fantastic. Have been going there for over 10 years.

We are spending the summer on the outer banks (for the second year in arrow) and have been trying different restaurants. We decide to try Port of Call as it is supposedly under new management. I ordered stuffed flounder and the fish was not done. The waiter was great and tried to rectify the mistake, but I would not recommend... More

I had the ribeye steak and it was cooked exactly like one should be...medium rare. Our server gave us the utmost attention and made sure everything was to our liking. It wasn't very crowded at all, we ate an early supper, but the environment was welcoming. I had the coconut cake for dessert and it was amazing.

Kimmy behind the bar was sweet and helpful! She made awesome drinks, too. The vibe was a little bit different than we were expecting to find. It was a bit outdated. It looked like a really old hotel but.. With no rooms.

We have been going to the Outer Banks for 25 years and have been constantly looking for a good restaurant to go to when we are there. After a number of over-priced, average meals over the years we decided to try Port O Call. First thing you notice is how cool the inside of the restaurant is. It looks like... More

A beautiful little restaurant that I had only heard about as a bar; I was pleasantly surprised to find a lovely dining room set with linens. The menu offered quite a variety of selections without being too overwhelming and the chef's specials all sounded tasty. Our server, PJ, was prompt, delightful and engaging. He and the food make this a... More

I have been to POC a number of times over the last few years. It's always been good. My husband and I went tonight, and the food was excellent. We generally eat seafood during the week, but we both went for steaks this meal. I'm glad we did! I got the filet Oscar, which was good. Now to the prime... More
