Good beachy restaurant

Fun atmosphere, good seafood, wraps and sandwiches. Great selection of beer. I was there with my husband and two teenagers for lunch. It was a tasty stop during a day at the beach.

Goombays was hands-down my favorite restaurant in Kill Devil Hills. It had everything I ever expected from a raw bar on the Carolina beach. Super fresh local seafood options, friendly staff, cold beer and killer laid-back atmosphere. While the fried stuff is always tempting, we sprung for the raw bar options: steamed NC shrimp in a house jerk rub, snow... More

We visited this restaurant on our last night in the OBX. We ordered crab cakes, soup, daily special (yellow fin tuna, shrimp and salmon) and alligator appetizer. The food was hot and delicious. The service was great and the kids really like the atmosphere with the mural on the wall, the pictures and the fish tank. Thank you for making... More

Colorful restaurant, friendly staff. I thought I was getting grilled or steamed fish, but my entree was entirely fried and not what I had in mind. I probably read the description wrong. After that I noticed it was a lot of fried options, so it depends on what you like. They had a good crab soup though, and my stepdaughter... More

We were looking for a restaurant.....that the locals frequent......Eva better than to ask a beach lifeguard. She gave me several suggestions & asked if you were going out tonight for dinner, where would you go.......Goomsbay Grille! Food and service were both great. We were told an hour wait.....it was only 45 minutes. Waitress was wonderful and spent time talking to... More

From the moment we walked in we were treated as old friends. Sat at the bar with folks who had been coming for 20 years as well as first timers like us. Our drinks were excellent and came with little plastic souvenir sharks containing grenadine. We ordered the sampler appetizer with fresh mango chutney. I liked it so much I... More
