If you love pancakes, then you will love this place. Prices are creeping up this year, but it did not stop me from my annual trips to Ships Wheel for breakfast. Service can be slow if they are packed, but it will be worth the wait!

Great service, and food. The pancakes were yummy! Our waiter was a male, forgot his name, but he is so nice, and did a great job! Small place, but great for smaller parties. Located on the beach Rd.

I ordered one egg over-medium and received two eggs over-easy. My boyfriend found a hair in his food that was definitely not his. When we told the waiter, he insisted none of the cooks have hair and said "What do you want me to do about it?" He didn't take my boyfriend's meal off the bill! Are you serious? Worst.... More

My husband and I two days in a row. They have all of the breakfast staples, good service from a pleasant staff. Really good hash browns, I never eat them ... these were really good. Nice thin hotcakes and good sausage. It's a good breakfast and worth the stop.

The service was HORRIBLE! I always liked this restaurant when my family came to the outer banks when I was growing up, so I wanted to bring my wife on our first year anniversary. She does not like eggs, so she wanted to order "the Ship's Mast" (2 eggs, hash browns, and hotcakes for $5.99), with sausage instead of eggs.... More

We were walking distance and our Property Management Company recommended them. Food is good, service is even better and they have a good selection of food to order.

My family ate here for breakfast on a Friday morning, no wait at all for a table. We all got french toast and it was very good. The hashbrowns were great, which i appreciate! It is a casual place, and the servers were very friendly. decorated with a sea theme. The atmosphere and food are nothing fancy, but it is... More

In all fairness, I should have sent the food back and given them a second chance but we were in a hurry to get on the road to our next stop. The food was probably delicious, 10 minutes before we were served. When I looked st it, it didn't even look like hot, fresh food, then I tasted it...UGH! I... More

Went for breakfast on the beach. Had a 5 minute wait which was nothing. Ordered and had quite a wait for our food to arrive. Everything was as ordered. The pancakes are awesome. Enjoyed everything. Hubby had the country ham and grits with his eggs. He said all was very good. We will add this place to our must do... More

We were blessed with great weather for our Outer Banks vacation, so we were in good spirits to begin with. Our visit to Ship's Wheel just upped the ante. Starting with very pleasant employees, we were treated to a breakfast that will be remembered above all other breakfasts. The hotcakes are huge! They're in the shape of a ship's wheel... More
