Nice place for breakfast to watch the sunrise

Stopped in with the family for breakfast, we were seated by the windows overlooking the pier and the ocean. What a treat! The food was standard breakfast fare, although the biscuits and pancakes were outstanding. The prices were reasonable and the view was priceless. What a great place to enjoy... read more

Stumbled on the restaurant on the Pier.. A little early, since it was still technically 'breakfast', but we waited it out until lunch. Took a nice long walk on the pier, met and talked to some locals, came back and had our pick of lovely outdoor seating overlooking the ocean. A great location..truly is. Is it the Ritz Carlton? No--it's... More

Absolutely love this place. Have frequented here for several years. The last couple years have seen vast improvements to the outside dining area. A full bar has been added. It is great to enjoy an adult drink and enjoy people watching from the pier. All while grubbing on excellent fresh seafood. We will continue to enjoy this pier

We went for dinner on a Sunday night around 7:30. The place was empty. We were the only ones inside. We decided to sit inside since there was a band outside and my daughter proclaimed it was too loud! I had shrimp and grits...unbelievable sauce and endless shrimp. It tasted incredible until I got to the actual grits. They were... More

My husband and I live here in the Outer Banks, and our favorite haunt this season is the Nags Head Pier. It's not that the food is so good, for it's not. And the service is painfully slow, though the servers are friendly. But you absolutely cannot beat the view from the outdoor deck, which sits right at the ocean.... More

Ordered just appetizers and a couple drinks at the tiki bar. The wings were small like very small and they were $10. The nachos had 1 broiled chicken breast chopped up on it. It tasted so so but once again way over priced at 10 dollars. The drink selection was great but a draft beer is 5 dollars... I spent... More

We go for breakfast at the pier every time we vacation in the Outer Banks. Breakfast was good and the prices aren't bad. Our waiter was decent. I'm giving a 3 Star review because of the hostess. She was VERY unfriendly. They shouldn't let someone so grumpy and with such a bad attitude run the hostess table. Despite her, we... More

We have been eating breakfast here since 1996. Our experiences have been great until the last 2 times. Let me first say that the view of the ocean is worth going all by itself. Amazing beautiful view. We went for breakfast a few weeks ago and we waited for about 45 minutes for a table which would be fine as... More
