For the price we expected better food. Got the seafood combo and it was small and not seasoned very well. Service was friendly but slow. The view is great, but you can spend $1.50 to walk the pier and save the other $70 to eat somewhere better

I've been to beaches in FL where there are lots of restaurant choices on the beach. Not in Nags Head. This was the only one we found and thank goodness it was perfect. Great view, very attentive staff, okay food. Go for the view and get some appetizers.

A very popular place and well deserved. The food was fine and we had a view of the pier and ocean as we ate. The service wazs excellent and our waitress was super. A singer entertained as we ate and it was a very enjoyable experience.

Im local and come here pretty much bi-weekly customer, I love it. The food and the view are a great way to start the day- the service is always different but the food is always great!! It's a beach town and the energy is relaxed so if you're in a rush this probably isn't the place for you. Candice is... More

Wait staff fast and very organized and efficient. Cooks also fast and efficient but omelettes just average. Not much taste, content or fluffiness.

Did a take out order for 14 people. Person on phone was perfect, however, the kitchen staff couldn't seem to get much correct. Our orders were incorrect, and while waiting 45 minutes for them to be corrected, we noted that the in house waitresses were having similar problems. Almost every order went back because it was incorrect! Food was nicely... More

We stopped here looking for a place to eat on the ocean. We were seated in the open air section with the ocean at our backs and a colorful umbrella over our heads. There was a stiff breeze and the place was packed. Service was a tad slow, but we were so comfortable, we didn't mind. Cold beer and a... More

The Nags Head Pier has been in operation for decades. The Pier House restaurant has also been operating for decades and offers excellent air conditioned oceanfront breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We stopped in for a Monday morning breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast. The hostess and waitresses were superb and made us feel welcomed. We had a delicious American breakfast... More
