Checked this place out for dinner this evening. When we first arrived, no one was at the door to greet us. It took a minute for the hostess to finally appear. Once seated, the hostess ended up taking our drink order because our waiter was busy with other tables. We received our drinks and I had already finished my first... More

My friends and I have visited Lucky 12 Tavern during 3 different visits to the Outer Banks and it's one place we keep coming back to. LOVE the atmosphere, love the food. We have had their wings and brag about those as well.

At mile 12, is Lucky 12 -- a great place to support the local businesses and find some yummy craft beers. A little above average bar food.

We've driven by this bar for years and never stopped, because the parking lot is usually full. Now I know why. Finding that Lucky 12 is one of two Pittsburgh Steelers bars on the Outer Banks piqued my interest. A couple friends and I stopped in on a Tuesday afternoon; after a morning of power shopping we were thirsty and... More

I was looking for a fun place to take my son for his 21st birthday and did the right thing by choosing the Lucky 12 Tavern. The menu was diverse and everyone got what they were looking for. The server was very friendly but as he had only been there a week he couldn't answer my questions, which was not... More

Best bar on the OBX. Kyle, BJ and the rest of the bartenders are the best. Food is also pretty good. Always a good time with plenty of big tv's to watch all the games. Great atmosphere.

What a cool little bar/restaurant on the OBX. The owner came by and gave us a proper hello and the staff as a whole were very friendly. It is decorated with great retro style memorabilia such as Gulf Gas signs, or coke machines and there are several televisions to watch sports. We had the crab bites, southwestern chicken salad and...

We have been to OBX many years and this is has yet to disappoint. The fish n chips or fish sandwich is the best any of us has had-ever. The buffalo bird-grilled or fried chic sandwich- is amazing too. The flat iron steak is to die for. The fries are fresh cut and are delicious. Daily specials too. Casual bar... More

We stopped one evening. Only had one parking space left and thought "we will wait forever to get a seat." Walked in and hostess sat us right away. Waitress came right over and took our drink orders. I ordered the half pound of steamed shrimp and a toss salad. I have never seen shrimp so big. Dressing was homemade as... More
