My husband and I reviewed TripAdvisor before picking a place to have dinner. We came across Lucky 12 Tavern and based on the reviews we decided to give it a try. We are so glad we did!

We had SO much fun at this bar! Fried oysters were good for being my first time er. The fish & chips were amazing and the beer was cold! Such a fun atmosphere too!

Highly recommend. Food tastes great and a good atmosphere for family (separate dining area) or those looking for a pub.

The special sauce with the oysters was wonderful, pizza also best around and it is so much fun at the Lucky 12 with very friendly patrons. Warning: get there early as they fill up fast and you may miss a great meal.

We had a wonderful meal.the service was spot on. The whole family enjoyed playing video games and pinball prior to our entrees being served. Will be repeat customers in the future. Huge beer selection.

I wasn't sure how it was going to go because they're closing up for 2 months in 2 days. Tuna bites were well seasoned. Not too spicy but just right. The Outer Banks seafood chowder was VERY good. Lots of seafood and seasoned just right. Would be interesting to go in season. They had probably 20 beer taps but only... More

Been driving by this place for years. I guess the look of the exterior didn't do anything to pull me in. I read somewhere that they focused on having a good selection of beers so we decided to check it out for lunch. So glad we did! I had one of the best burgers I have had on the outer... More

We stopped in here for lunch. We had a couple of drinks and fried oysters with hand cut fries, cup of soup and a bq sandwich. Bar like atmosphere with good food. I am sure it would be rowdy at night but it was fairly quiet except for the tvs.
