Lots of food, great staff!

We barely made it here for the early bird special, but the manager was nice enough to let us use our coupon though! We had a large party, and ordered a lot of food and drinks, and our waitress was fast, efficient, and very friendly. The portions were large, and the sides were reasonable, they were... read more

This was by far one of the best places we ate at during our vacation. The food is great and the portions are plentiful. All of the staff were really nice.

The name is funny, the retail store is cool, service was great and wait staff was friendly and informative. The quantity and quality of the food was average but priced as if it was exceptional.

Great service, limited wait, great food. My drink glass never went empty. One server for our party of 11. She never fell behind. Food was great with large portions. We'll definitely return on our next visit to OBX.

I wanted seafood for dinner, and we arrived a little late to get reservations anywhere. We were seated quickly and service was prompt. I enjoyed the Mariners Platter, but wish there were more steamed options for dinner.

We went to Dirty Dick's on a drive-by, looking for somewhere to eat without waiting an hour. We were seated immediately and the staff was awesome; however, the food was mediocre and the prices were very high - turns out this was our most expensive dinner all week and we certainly ate at "finer" establishments... The atmosphere of the restaurant... More

Good food in a fun atmosphere. Prices are reasonable and you do not go away still hungry. Good menu choices/options and fun can be had by all as well. Crabs and seafood are good as are sandwiches and good drink menu.
