We ordered takeout wings for the Super Bowl four hours prior to pick up time. On arrival, it took them almost 25 minutes to get our order together. Just completely poor service. Wow.

Happy hour never disappoints. They have great food specials on wings and steamed shrimp, it's always a good time. They have pool tables and shuffle board. At night they have corn hole on their deck. One of my favorites in kitty hawk.

We had a bad meal at this joint. If you were not there for the college game or to drink at the bar you were put in the back in the corner. The food was worse than the service. No matter if you are staving DON"T GO>

I wished we'd taken time & looked at reviews before we choose Longboards to eat. Service was adequate & food was prompt so there's the good side. Bad side was employees smoking on the front porch as we made our way inside, the grill obviously needed to be cleaned, & there was a fly in my drink. Ehhhh

We were a group of 12 looking for a place to play pool. This place was perfect because it had three pool tables and wasn't crowded. Since it was a restaurant we decided to eat there as well despite the other reviews. Overall it was good, but was uncomfortably hot in there. So hot that we didn't play too many... More

I've never reviewed a restaurant before but felt the need to. Should have known parking lot was empty. Food was awful I sent back and chose not to order anything else. I ordered tuna. It was frozen something. My husband who will eat anything said his was terrible too. Frozen shrimp out of a bag and steak. Please save yourself... More

Love the food and the staff here. Great deck with tables and cornhole and beautiful lights to relax. The shrimp and grits and pizza are great. They serve food late which is helpful for people that work late.

My family and I have made this our favorite stop on our annual vacation to the Outer Banks. Food is awesome, happy hour prices are the best on the beach. The owner works the bar and takes great care of you. Pool tables, darts, and a great wait staff make this a must stop for all.

The service at the restaurant was great; our waitress was super sweet. My sister and I ordered mixed drinks and they tasted awful and. It worth the extra cost. When our food came, everyone enjoyed it. I had the seafood Alfredo, and it was better than expected. My boyfriend had the "crabby patty" a burger seasoned with old bay and... More
