Picture online accurately reflected the place. Didn't like the spice used in the rice. Curried chicken was ok. Crab cakes were heavily breaded.

The food was excellent, but our drinks weren't refilled and after the waitress brought the check, she didn't come back to pick it up. I ended up taking it to the front counter myself and was told the waitress would need to take care of it. I told them if she ever came back I'm sure she would have. The... More

We visited twice while on vacation and the first night was great. The staff was courteous and attentive, the next day, we were all but ignored. So I guess I would have to say if at first you don't like it, give it another chance.

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
