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.

Tried this place for lunch. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Wait staff attentive and friendly. It can get pricey if you are having cocktails. Lots of tvs for watching whatever game you want.

My husband and I stopped by here for dinner on our last night in the Outer-banks. We found it a bit tricky to get a parking spot. We had to park a little down the road. It was worth the walk. We were lucky enough to get right in even though they were very busy. There is a wide range... More

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.
