A must-visit.

Great lunch with my family! They quickly accommodated our large party with ease. We'll be back for the people, food, and atmosphere.

This is a good casual beach restaurant. There's a good variety on the menu. I had the buffalo shrimp which is an appetizer but I had it for a light meal. It was delicious. This is a surprisingly good place for kids too with a good kids menu.

We carried out pizza and it was delicious! We had the Italian Stallion and just a classic Pepperoni pizza. Both were good.

Every summer vacation I return to Lucky 12. The food is one of the best on the beach. This was my 8th visit in as many years. I stumbled upon it by accident in 2007. The staff are just great down home folk. Congrats to the owner. He should be proud.

Great place for a late night dinner and drinks. The bar staff were wonderful - very good service (Saturday night). Outstanding pizza selection - we ordered three different pies. Excellent beer and drink selection. Security was very diligent about ensuring everyone in the bar area was over 21. Our "kids" were carded three times.

We had a bit of longer wait due to a fluke and they went above and beyond to ensure we had a great experience. First of all, it's a fun joint - and if there's a bit of a wait on a Saturday night, hang out on the back porch, have a beverage, play some cornhole and enjoy yourself. Next,... More

Pizza and wings here are excellent! Do yourself a favor a stop by the bar... drinks are delicious and you can even take in a game of ski ball! Super cool place while at the beach.

Great casual fun place in Nags Head. The place to go for drinks, wings, pizza, to play pool, skee ball, or just hang out. We went there on a rainy day and had a blast. Great beer list and fun drink list including the cougar and bikini martinis. Highly recommend this place.
