Waited well over an hour for our food. No apps, no salads. Our entire night was blown and they offered us a whopping 10% off. Go somewhere else if you have other things to do.

We ordered steamed shrimp, hush puppies, burgers, fish tacos, fish and chips and the veggie Philly. Everything was absolutely delicious and served quickly. The shrimp were huge. We had a great indoor table overlooking the sound. Will definitely go back.

This restaurant had some of the best steamed shrimp I've ever eaten, as well as catfish. The portions were very good size and the prices great! Located above Kitty Hawk Kites, they have nightly specials and fantastic service. I will definitely return.

The outdoor seating is in direct sunlight and the inside seating was chilly.

Walked to the restaurant on a Wednesday night. Great drinks specials and half price appetizers. 20% if dining prior to 5pm. We didn't but just a reminder. They had live music. We had a table for 11 and things went very well. A lot of different orders and drinks and service was up to the task. We enjoyed Calamari, Edamame,... More

Nice small facility. Service was great. Food was great. Second floor but there are little blocks along the deck in the front of the building to direct you where to go.

Take the elevator up over the Kitty Hawk Kites store- nice bar and relaxing atmosphere with a nice outside deck. There was entertainment the night we were there - looked like some locals that got together to jam. We had spinach salad and the shrimp dinner - fantastic! Decent wine list and full bar. Also serve Sunday Brunch.

Absolutely horrendous! When we arrived we asked to be seated outside. The "waitress" said "sure" and pointed to the door. 20 minutes later, no waitress. I finally went to the bar myself to get our drinks. Keep in mind the restaurant was nearly empty, so the waitstaff was definitely not overworked. While at the bar two people sent their hamburgers...

With all the great restaurants in Rodanthe, Good Winds would be at the middle of my list of restaurants to go back to. Good was okay, not awesome. Service was friendly but slow, and I couldn't get past the "Nitela" dessert as advertised on the menu board. Lololol!!

Food was really great. Our server was very good and took great care of us... It is a fun environment and a cool place to just hang out and people watch. It's right on the sound and there is no better place to watch a NC sunset!
