Highly recommend!

Stopped in for dinner on a Thursday evening- had a great time! Lively atmosphere, you can tell they are well liked in the community. The food and the service were on point. I will definitely be returning!

So I will begin by saying we didn't actually eat here but I felt the need to post a review about my experience tonight. With a group of 7 friends walking distance I was tasked with checking on wait time...which was an hour due to season and popularity. When I told guy taking names that I was the advance scouting...

My family and I ate lunch here, its a small place, so it can get crowded quick...especially at dinner. I had the "famous" fish tacos, they were ok, if I went again I'd try something else though. The service was good for how busy the servers were. I'd recommend checking this place out if you're in the area.

I dream about the fish tacos and tuna steak sandwich for 364 days! We vacation in OBX every year and this is one place we always make sure to visit! The place is a little small so make sure to get there at 5:00pm or sooner to avoid a wait. If you have to wait, however, it would be worth... More

We visited Mama Kwan's for dinner last night, and it was fantastic. We had a wait of about half an hour, but it was worth it. The service was great, and food was excellent. The fish tacos are amazing. One of our favorite restaurants at the OBX.

I really wanted to like this place. Wait was over an hour to be seated. My blackened fish talks were so salty and very dry! My son got the fish tacos that were not blackened and raved about them. I think next year we will try this place again. Great waitress.

This is a fun place to sit up at the bar and have a sandwich and some drinks. Very low-key, fun, and friendly atmosphere. I have also been there with family and sat at a table and that was nice as well.
