Always look forward to going here!

We come to OBX at least three times a year and always make sure we eat here! It's always busy so that tells you it's that good. I think they have the best shrimp. Hubby usually has the crabcakes and says they are delicious! Our waitress was very attentive and efficient. Can't wait to come back in... read more

Me my wife and a friend ate there, and the food was mediocre at best. the ribs were dry, and the wings were average. I will say there cheesesteak rolls are on point, but that's about it. I also felt like i was rushed and im a local and it's off- season so figure that out. Im not trying to... More

Great super fresh fish and really friendly service, oh, and reasonably priced. We had Mahi~mahi served over cheesy grits, and gumbo. Both were superb.

My family loves Kill Devil Grill. The food is always delicious. They have great daily specials. So good that they often sell out of the favorite specials. Great service. If a wait staff walks by and sees you need a refill or plates cleared they do it even if they are not your assigned server. It is a bit cramped... More

We visit Kill Devil Grill every trip to OBX. Never leave disappointed; today was no exception. Chili was awesome, as always. Grilled Mahi special over cheese grits with arugula was amazing. Service was extremely attentive. Thanks for another great meal!!

Fried chicken Friday is a must for lunch. It sells out quickly. All he entrees we have had have been filled with flavor.The service is excellent. Take out is easy.

So... I have been here once for lunch years ago...and never came back. Everyone raves about going here but I just did not seem very impressed. They prices are a little steep for the portion. I went for lunch and got this angel hair pasta...don't make the same mistake. It was all clumped together somewhat thrown together and did not... More

This is a great place. Good atmosphere, nice bar, and very friendly and competent waitstaff. The food is very good. Good traditional dishes and interesting specials. All of the fish was fresh. I can't imagine how busy the place must be in the summer. The wait on a weekend in February is 30-60 minutes. Give it a try.

We had lunch at the Kill Devil Grill and had an excellent meal of beer battered monk fish. It really was one of the best dishes we have ever had. We finished up with the key lime pie, oh so good! This is our favorite place to eat in the obx and they never disappoint. We usually pick a meal... More
