My family of four including teens liked everything we ate here, but I felt that it was a little overpriced. The service was excellent and the food was good, but it was not a really upscale restaurant, however it was priced like one. I got stuffed shrimp and the shrimp were small and the "stuffing" was mostly breading and was... More

We couldn't miss all the ads coming into the outer banks and laughed at the name so we had to go there. Affordable food that was average quality. Wouldn't be a top restaurant, but it was plenty affordable.

We have been here a few times. We were at the old location which was nice. The new location is bigger and better. The wait staff is amazing. If you go request Sylvia! She was the best server we had while at the OBX and we had a lot. She took care of our party of seven with ease. Made... More

We have ate at DD's multiple times while on vacation and I have never been dissapointed. It can be quite pricey so I recommend you tubing how to catch and cook your own crab. Go to DD's for some more exotic seafood. And the t-shirts are a must to take home.

Nothing was as advertised. Started when we walked in, the atmosphere wasn't at all what we were expecting. It was boring the advertisements created an exciting feeling. My son ordered their special shark bite drink that was supposed to come in a collectible cup, it just came in a regular cup. My wife ordered what the menu describes as a... More

Glad we didn't base this eating experience on Trip Advisor reviews. All TA reviews have been spot on. Dicks is much better than average rating. When ordering Bloody Mary, waitress made a point of asking if I had any shell fish allergies. Why? Dick's mix has shrimp, lobster, and clams in the mix. Garnish is celery, okra, dilled green bean...

I was extremely impressed with our waitress during our visit to Dick's. She was extremely friendly and knew a lot about the menu, and really made us feel welcome during our visit. However, other than some killer hush puppies, the food was average at best. I also thought it was way overpriced for how so-so the food tasted. Fun place... More

Very good with our group of 6, explained everything well, even came back to offer one of us a better... More
