A good place to eat in Rodanthe, NC

We stopped for a late lunch in Rodanthe, NC on Friday, July 17. The restaurant is located upstairs, but there is an elevator. We were offered a seat on the deck outside the restaurant at a picnic table. This overlooked the sound and as there was an odor I asked to be seated inside. The ambience... read more

Stopped for lunch, the crab cakes and cheesesteak were both fabulous! Service was courteous and prompt. Will definitely recommend this place.

The staff is pleasant and attentive; however, there were too many mistakes for the overall trip to be "honorable". Our server blamed the cooks for her "losing" our ticket, and we had to wait well over an hour for our food! Even though they comped us half of our bill, the food was down right bland. My fries were over... More

We were seated right away (no wait). The view is gorgeous, and the wait staff friendly. The food was good, especially the hush puppies. I had the fried oyster basket, and it was tasty.

We went there twice in one week. Great food, great service (Jessie was great), & great sunset views. Sits right on the sound side so you can watch the kite boarding FLY around.

Good winds is a nicely appointed restaurant. I tried the fish tacos. They were good but I feel like they could have been better; hot sauce did help though. Everyone at our table ranked as average to very good as an experience. Worth hitting if you're staying in Rodanthe. We hit it en route to our condo in Hatteras which... More

Went out with another couple for dinner. There wasnt anything over spectacular but it wasnt bad. Had catfish and it was more breading than fish. My fiancee had mahi and it was awesome. I would say this is a good restaurant for the money - vacation dining at best.

This is our first visit to the outer banks. We are traveling via a fifth wheeler camper and staying at the KOA campground. We arrived later in the afternoon, set up and waited out a nasty rain storm before deciding to eat out. Read the mixed reviews and decided to go to Good Winds. We arrived around 6:00, were seated...

My family went to Good Winds for dessert. We were trying to find key lime pie. Sadly they were out. We had lava cake and root beer floats. Good service. Good view of the sound. Nice atmosphere.
