Not a good day

The place does not live up to its name. The service was slow. They made the menu complicated and for the cup and half they couldn't do an Italian sub, but they could do an Italian panini.

We went here for a late lunch on a Thursday afternoon. It's off seaon, so we were the only ones in there. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My wife has some pretty strict dietary restrictions and they were very accommodating and patient. I got the Reuben Special and I'm very picky about Reubens beacuse not everyone gets it... More

My husband and I were in OBX on vacation and tried this eatery at the urging of our son. When you enter, you will see a beautifully arranged store with a large selection of fresh and prepackaged gourmet food items. You are immediately greeted by the aroma of heavenly baked goods and freshly brewed coffees. You can order from a... More

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...
