Visited Awful Arthur's for the first time on 20JULY2014. Our group chose to sit upstairs at the bar. Ordered shrimp and oysters. Selected a Pina Colada as my beverage. The shrimp and oysters were an hour wait and upon arrival, they were average at best. My beverage was mundane. The service was less than average. I concluded that one of... More

Great menu from pasta to burgers and salads and sandwiches. For the real sea food lovers you can mix and match and the prices vary on your choice. Nice PLACE without seeing rude loud customers and excellent customer service from the staff. ENJOY your FISH AND SEA FOOD WHILE OTHERS DID ALL THE WORK AND DISHES

Waited 90 minutes for a table, which is a sign that it's a good place. Got steamed shrimp and oysters as an app, both were fantastic! Had grilled wahoo as an entree which I think is a special so it may not be available all the time. Can't wait to come back!

We really like coming here. The locals here are always friendly and treat you like family. The atmosphere is what you would expect from the beach.

We went for dinner on a Saturday night, there was an hour wait which was to be expected. While waiting you are free to go to their gift shop next door or the bar upstairs, we did both. We got drinks from the bar, which were good. The staff was friendly, knowledgable and helpful. Customer service was a obvious priority.... More

Intrigued by the name! Drew us in and we were glad. Went early for supper and didn't have to wait. Service was fast and great. Busy place! Would eat here again.

We arrived at 4:45 and there was already a line forming for a dinner table. No problem; my husband and I just ate at the bar, which was great fun. The bartenders were charming, and it was a treat to watch them shuck the seafood in front of us. The food was very good.

Our family is on vacation in Kitty Hawk, NC. We have 8 Adults, and 5 children. This restaurant is small, but they have an impressive menu. Our waitress did a great job taking car of us, and the food was great. We will go back!! They also have a local "Awful Arthur nutty brew" on tap that is a must!!
