We came here because of the positive reviews in TripAdvisor and we are so happy we did. The food was excellent, service was friendly and efficient, and the drinks we too notch. The piña colada was one of the best I've had and the Sour Apple Rita, the drink special, was a fun twist on an old favorite. The fish... More

We arrived right as lunch was starting so we (party of 10) were seated quickly. The place is small, but ecelictic, vibrant, and clean. The menu had a nice variety of non-typical fare and was cooked to order. The kids menu (again) was cookie cutter, but the popcorn shrimp was so fresh I found myself snacking off of my kid's... More

Went here our first night in OBX. It was a short wait for excellent food. We had fish tacos, shrimp and tuna, all of which were wonderful. The service was good and everyone had a good time. I'd definitely go back.

We tried to eat here on Saturday night, but there was an hour wait. Came back the next night and it was only 30 minutes. So worth it. (It is a small restaurant which is why the wait is long). Everything on the menu sounded awesome. Delicious onion rings and homemade veggie burger. Quick service.

There is a little something for everybody. We chose this restaurant based in reviews from trip advisor. Quick service, generous portions, and fun atmosphere. Had the pad thai. It was spicy and delicious. The chicken that came with it was not seasoned and was a bit dry, but overall, very pleased. So big I had to take a box home!

This place is really good. Tuna nachos, fish tacos, wings, shrimp and grits, friend green beans and the like are on the menu. Everything seems to have a little kick to it. Service was friendly and attentive. Great choice for a casual, but quality, dinner in an area where the latter is few are far between.

This was a surprising find on the outer banks for us. Most of the places we went to were either too expensive or had unappealing food. Kwan's was a restaurant we would go to, even if it was in the neighborhood where we live rather than in a vacation spot. The food was pretty good (not outstanding but good) and... More

I compare all other fish tacos to Mama Kwans. They simply have the best you will find anywhere. The place is clean, and the service is prompt. They have lots of great menu items, but seriously, don't miss the blackened fish tacos.
