A congenial host and proprietor, David H.

Particularly delicious was his seafood soup featuring local specialties. Wow, was that... read more

Quaint downtown eatery with eclectic charming decor. Very attentive and friendly service and a diverse menu with many upscale options. Nightly specials, Friday is seafood. Try the house made blue cheese dressing and save room for one of the decadent desserts. Freshly brewed unsweet tea, crisp and refreshing. We ordered a fish entree and ham entree, both were delicious and... More

We were staying at the Hilton Garden Inn on our way home from vacation and asked for a recommendation on a good place to have dinner. They not only told us that David's Restaurant was a great place to eat, they also gave us a coupon for 2 free appetizers or desserts. When we saw good reviews on Trip Advisor... More

While traveling thru North Carolina on Rt. 95 we were looking for a place to stop and grab dinner before continuing on our journey. About 10 minutes off of route 95 in Roanoke Rapids, NC. David's restaurant is a true find with great food and exceptional service. What a welcome change from the usual fast food stops we normally make... More

Went with another couple, friends from our neighborhood. They had oysters on the signboard but were sold out. Told the owner that we were disappointed and he said to give him a few minutes to see if he could locate some bivalves. He was successful and we had a great meal with good wine and imported beer. Not a big... More

This restaurant may look old fashioned and a bit dowdy but don't be fooled. The food was really good and there was a great selection to choose from. Waitress was really friendly and food/wine was reasonably priced. Would have no hesitation in recommending Davids to anyone.

It's sad to think that this place has so much potential. This is the only "fine dining" establishment in the area and boy, does it lack.

My wife and I went in for early dinner on a Thursday night. We had a great experience. David, the owner and executive chef, was present and up front engaging with patrons and ensuring quality. Our waitress was very friendly and a real restaurant pro who knew the menu, specials, and wine list. It's a peculiar old facility, having once... More
