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...

Not a bad place to grab a meal if you're in Kitty Hawk. Servers and staff are kind and the menu is good. Had a seafood dinner for a good price. A decent place to stop by instead of the chain restaurants along the road. There's also a small pool hall attached to the restaurant. Outdoor seating is also available.... More

We went here for dinner after encountering a 45 minute wait across the street. It was pretty typical bar food/scene, but the two standouts of the evening were the fries (perfectly salted and nicely battered) and the pizza, which the kids ordered off the kids menu! The crust and sauce are perfectly seasoned for a very tasty pizza. I wish... More

Everytime I go here I have fun. Sometimes I meet locals and sometimes I meet people on vacation. Either way, we play some pool, have some drinks and always a good time. Good service and good food.

We have visited here twice so far this week drink specials 3-6 for happy hours! Service staff is friendly and helpful! We really enjoyed the warm crab dip... Have a kids menu as well.

When we travel with our family of four, we rarely try restaurants without checking its reviews first (one too many tourist traps with mediocre food for gouging prices). We stopped here by chance, breaking that rule when our planned place turned out to be closed. I was immediately charmed by the friendly staff. With a heavily attended full bar and... More

We have contemplated patronizing Longboards on a few occasions and I haven't actually gone inside because every time we've driven up in the parking lot it's empty as if no one is there or else there are drunk people in the parking lot. However, they've recently renovated the restaurant, updated their branding, and changed their menu altogether. After noticing the... More
