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

Our party of 4 decided to stop for lunch after seeing a too-crowded parking lot at another restaurant. Being from Pittsburgh, we felt at home seeing the Pirates flag flying in the parking lot as well as a collection of Pittsburgh sports bobble heads above the bar. Found out the owner is a Pittsburgh native. The menu had numerous choices... More

Had a great meal here with the family. Tuna bites were great and the seafood chowder was tops on everyone's list. We ate light this night (Southwestern Chicken salad - very tasty; pizza - very good; Caesar salad with home made dressing and a butternut squash soup that was to die for!!!) Sports bar atmosphere, but very family friendly. And... More

Went here for dinner with my family on our last night. My husband and I both ordered entree and my two girls each ordered a slice of pizza. When our meals came out- the girls were both given a large pizza's as well as our entrees! We told the waitress that our order was incorrect and she argued with us... More

We have gone there for the past couple of years for the hang, of course, since it is a tavern environment, but specifically for the pizza! And the fried pickles! By far, in my humble opinion, the best pizza on the Outer Banks, and over the past 20+ years of vacationing there, we have tried ALL the pizza joints! You... More

Went here with friends mostly to watch baseball games (2 times) on their many tv's. Staff ok with finding the game. Service good and food the same. Friendly atmosphere and staff. A little noisy but that's ok. People there to have fun, eat some food and drink adult beverages. Has a "local bar" atmosphere, and it appeared that many of... More

The burgers were awesome - juicy and full of flavor - as well as the fries! Great little vintage burger place to go at the beach!
