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

Stopped in for lunch and we were surprised. Very friendly staff, great food and good prices. It's a Sports Bar primarily from what we could gather, but they make the BEST Black & Blue Burger I've ever had....crusty on the outside and juicy inside...also they have a great fish chowder too.......GO THERE!

OMG, the pizza was to die for - little pricey, but well worth the bucks. Our last night we wanted to sit by the beach altogether and enjoy our time so we ordered the supreme and the pepperoni and sausage. Best pizza we've had in a long time.

Had a good time but really, the place could be cleaner - floors, tables, chairs, glasses. Food is marginal at best. I thought the place, since recommended by military friends, was better - ocean side bar with the seedy look, but if you are looking for a place to eat, this isn't the place.

Our family has been there twice within the past week. The first night was for burgers the second night we had pizza and both were great. AJ our waitress was awesome. We always dedicate a trip to lucky 12 when we come to box.

Tried getting into "Captain Andy's" across the way @ Nags Head Pier for dinner - well that experience will go into another review but Lucky 12 saved the night. Got right in - the hostess was awesome. Ordered the pizza we always know is great, plus a couple of appetizers. The wings here are OK, I swear one whole wing... More
