Truly a "Beach Grill"

They finally got it right! Best wings on the beach, excellent pizza among many other menu items. Cold beer with excellent specials in a casual atmosphere. If you are looking for the "Beach" experience with the friendliest staff and great entertainment, you will not be disappointed. Thanks for great... read more

Went for the first time on 4/18. It was the beginning of bike week, which I had seen advertised at length in the Outer Banks area. It was a perfectly beautiful day, warm and sunny. Longboards is one of the few restaurants/bars advertised on the bike week website/posters as having DJs and bands throughout the afternoon and evenings so it's... More

We had blackened tuna, oyster dinner, black and blue burger, and crabby patty and they were all great!! The atmosphere is more sports bar but with a surfer twist. There are pool tables to enjoy during your wait, but we had no wait and our food came in a good amount of time, too!

We stopped at Longboards for dinner this past weekend. Hmm.. where to begin. I ordered an Orange Crush - it was made with oj from the carton - not fresh squeezed as it is suppose to be. The bartender stopped by our table to ask if I wanted more oj in the drink - she had some in a random... More

We stopped by Longboards for happy hour. They advertise 25 cent shrimp. Once inside they only sell shrimp by the half pound. You spend more than 25 cents per shrimp that way. Food was average at best. We had a large party and it took the waitress 45 minutes to separate the bill. Overall not worthy of a poor rating,... More

It's like going to "Cheers" everyone knows you so watch what you do. The food is always good and there is usually a beer special or if not beer another drink, ask you waitress. There is happy hour food at a good price, go early so you don't miss it...
