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!

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!

My daughter and I stopped in for lunch and we both had the grilled chicken club. The chicken was grilled perfect, it was juicy and NOT over cooked and dry like you get at most places. Make sure you ask for their sriracha aioli on the side soooooo good!! On a side note, for the area the prices are reasonable!

Had eaten here in September 2014, enjoyed everything. Ordered Rib eye dinner for $19. Brochure stated early bird specials before 5pm. We were the only ones in the dining room at 4:40pm. No early bird specials offered. Our waiter was mentally somewhere else this day. Ordered Caesar salad and cole slaw. Waiter disappeared until our meal came. The salads came... More

Emphasis on local fresh seafood. Wanchese scallops were outstanding as were the shrimp. Inventive deserts as well

The restaurant is on the water so the views are amazing! We went during sunset... It was incredible to see. The food was great as well. I got the mahi mahi fish tacos. It was so fresh! I wish I could have gotten 20 orders to go. Would definitely go back again!!!

We enjoyed boiled shrimp and a "hot mess" here today. Craft beers and a lucky viewing of kite surfing just off the deck were a special treat!

Views were great and the sound was calm when we were there in April. The fried Mahi sandwich was great and fish tacos were yummy! Fries were good. Watermelon beer was tasty! Seating available inside and out. Would stop by here again.
