Sandwiches are excellent. You order at counter and food is brought to you, so if you want a place to have a lunch meeting, this would be it. Once you've seated yourself, you're on your own and there is no waitress interruption while eating. The other nice thing is that if you're watching your portions, this is a good place... More

Very good place for breakfast in the Outer Banks! Very good omlettes, excellent chocolate chip pancakes, fluffy tasty biscuits, and great peasant potatoes. We hunted and hunted for a great breakfast in the Outer Banks - this is it!

To the owners, your place has so much potential but the staff needs to be trained to smile and to maybe suggest a thing or two?… I ordered the shrimp salad sub and it was the WORST SHRIMP SALAD I have ever eaten in my life. Suggestion….run to Harris Teeter and get some from their deli….you can get great ideas... More

I had the hot beef & cheddar sandwich, Chocolate Ecstasy cake, and a cheese bagel to take back for breakfast. So many good choices, had a hard time deciding... sandwiches, salads, bakery, desserts, unusual sodas, and much much more. Everything was SO good! I wish I had found it before our last day there. Order at the counter, then find... More

So that oceanfront house we got on the fly turned out not having Wi-Fi of any sort and we ended up breakfasting and lunching at the Good Life even more often than usual. The food was good, from pulled-pork samwich to crab omelet to hummus salad (vegetarian, heh). Craft beers at decent prices didn't hurt either. Staff didn't bug us... More

What a fantastic find! The food is made from scratch and very flavorful. This is not fast food people, each order prepared individually. We enjoyed The Good Life so much, we ate there three times in three days. Definitely plan to visit again!

Fine food, clean, bright, inside and outside tables, serves breakfasts in small frying pans (not black cast iron but French omelets pans), good coffee, wonderful fresh salads, sandwiches. Kids pancakes in the shape of Mickey Mouse with choc chips were wonderful. Sausage gravy over excellent biscuits were my favorite. Absolutely no one in the group had a complaint about anything...

Our breakfast was good once we finally got it but the staff was awful. Of course you pay in advance (adding tip) and then you get terrible service. We are local so they turned off good potential customers.

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience with us. I would appreciate knowing how the staff was rude to you so we can fix the issue. I would also appreciate knowing the time of day you were here so I can check my computer and see exactly what was going on at that time to explain why... More

We arrived for a late dinner around 7pm. We thought the place was closed, but the door said they closed at 9pm so we went in. One had marinated salmon with a cucumber salad and one had the applewood turkey and bacon panni with apples and chips. The food was GREAT! We loved every bite! But it was sad how... More

Stopped in here later in the evening on a Saturday night after an afternoon on the beach. Interesting selection of wines, microbrew beers, eclectic soft drinks, old school snacks and desserts, gourmet chips and such, as well as deli-style sandwiches. I had an Italian sandwich while my son had the half-sandwich and cup of soup. My sandwich was fantastic, and... More
