I'm only giving Lucky 12 a 5, because there isn't a 6!

On our annual family trip to OBX, we were recommended this place to try. When we first walked in, I was extremely nervous seeing as we had a party of 18 (10 adults and 8 kids). The Assistant Manager Rob was extremely friendly, and did explained he would do what he could. We were in no real rush... read more

Lucky 12 offers something for everyone. They had a variety of foods on their menu from seafood to burgers. The entire place is decorated with old antique collectables on the walls. They have a game room with a pool table and corn hole outside for family fun. They have a bar with a large selection of beers to choose from.... More

Lucky 12 is a reliable place for good food in a casual atmosphere. Good burgers and sandwiches. Haven't had the pizza yet but hear it is good also. Good daily fresh specials also.

Cute little tavern with the intent to mimic a Pittsburgh tavern... a little out of place for a beach community, but to each their own. The wait staff was friendly but not very good at providing service-- it was not busy but there was a game on and she was watching it on one of their many tvs. The food... More

Fast service. Helpful waiter. Daily special entree of grilled tuna was cooked to perfection. Sauce was just right.

Lucky 12 has a nice selection of draft beers with a varied menu from entrees to pizza to burgers and sandwiches. I had the chef special of grilled mahi with a crab cake while my wife had the fried shrimp. Both were excellent. We've had the pizza here before and it is very good. Definitely coming back.

This place has good food. Most of the stuff you see here is what you'll see at other places on the beach. About the same prices too. I had the Portobello sandwich, which was good. Their pizza is also good. Great place to go hang out and get a drink. Would not recommend to people with kids in the evening.

We arrived for diiner on the night of July 4th, and they were very busy, but we got drinks at the bar, and waited only a short time for our table. Our server was excellent, the food was great, and our entire experience was outstanding. The Lucky 12 Tavern is one of our favorite places on the Outer Banks, and... More
