Good Winds Seafood & Wine Bar is known as The Hatteras Dining Experience. Each table has a view of the water. The cuisine is superb--with Chef Joel creating new menus seasonally. Food served here is local and fresh. We have the largest beer and wine selection on Hatteras Island. Reservations for large parties are recommended. Live music weekly, daily specials, and open more days than any restaurant on Hatteras Island!

Great stop for lunch

Great views from the balcony and the food was pretty good. Edaname and spicy Asian shrimp hit the spot. Would come back next time we are down this way

My daughter & I sneaked out of the beach house that we were sharing with 15 other people. We shopped in Kitty Hawk Kites, and the guy working told us that you were open :) We were looking for somewhere to eat and kill some time, before returning to that noisy house full of relatives. We were greeted by the... More

We had to hunt to find this little gem of a restaurant, but it was well worth it. I always surprised at the prices. They seemed a little high, even for OBX standards. But my husband and I shared a Plate of fried, fish, scallops and shrimp. It came with slaw, hush puppies and fries. Overall, a very good meal.

We visited here when they first opened a bunch of years ago and were not impressed. That has all changed. The formerly slow service is now efficient and friendly. The food was always good-but now it's GREAT, and comes out fast. I took a little while to decide what I wanted because there are so many things on the menu... More

This place is all about atmosphere! If you want lunch or dinner while enjoying a great view of the sound, it doesn't get better than this. The food was pretty good, a bit expensive, but the portions were large. They made a martini for me that wasn't on the menu and it was great, I would have liked to try... More

This is an amazing location on the sound in Rodanthe. Kite boarders flying along the water, entertain you while dining. The lunch prices for huge portions of fish and chips or Spinach Salad with crispy mahi bites were a bit high but the scenery softened the blow:) A tiny locale with amazing sites. A scenic, fairly long drive from Nags... More

My advice would be to stick to the appetizers, the entrees are so-so at best. Mahi Mahi bites and calamari were delicious. My salad was drowning in dressing. I'd asked for red wine vinaigrette and got a creamy caesar type dressing with some red wine vinegar mixed it. Not a good combo. Dinner partner's fish was dry and practically inedible.... More

Decent food, friendly service. Brought water foe the dog. Supposed to take dog up outdoor stairs in back but we had already walked inside. They were very nice about it and let us walk through to the deck.

A nice place for lunch or dinner overlooking the water and kite boarders. Sit on huge deck if weather permits. Fish and chips are usually excellent. Dark & Stormies are the perfect choice on a rainy day.
