We ate here around 3pm, which is probably a slow time for most restaurants, and there were only a couple other people there, which was nice! Our food came out really quickly and it was delicious. I got the Caribbean creole pasta and it was very good. It had the right amount of spice to it. The other people I... More

The crab dip was great. The fish and chips was not oily,crispy battered, clean tasting treat. We had an issue with one ordered item but the staff made it right quickly and efficiently. Mistakes happen, they did a great job taking responsibility and ensuring it was right.

We were there 8/11 or 12/14 craving some oysters. The bartender who was extremely unfriendly to the tourists, told us oysters not in season. Ha, they were at other restaurants. The bloody Mary was HORRIBLE. Food was average.

I love Goombay's and always make it a point to have at least one meal there on vacation to OBX. This time we had the crab dip app and it was the most amazing thing ever! It was served with pita that was crispy and soft at the same time with a light seasoning that was delicious. The dip itself... More

Be warned, this place can get crowded for dinner! It's got some great food specials and a decent bar. The service was excellent, but the food was just okay - standard American fare. It's really the location that sets it apart: after a day at the beach, it's a nice dinner spot in a casual atmosphere.

My family went here for our weekly outing. We have had lunch here many times over the years. The chicken quesadilla is outstanding. It's enough for two meals. My husband loves the fish tacos even though they were not that generous with the tuna this time around. But all in all this place is great and we will definitely return!

Personal attention from server to assure us of getting food we would like. She asked the chef to customize our order and he did...adding something and leaving off something else. His work was well worth the cost, which was very nominal. My mahi was the very best I have ever eaten, and I was just getting over a bit of... More

Goombays is a family favorite when traveling to the outer banks. Very kid friendly with specialty kids drinks. I have not had a bad meal at Goombays. Would recommend steamers, fish tacos or pecan crusted grouper. These are some of are favorites. Excellent craft beer selection also. Service is always good.
