I was so looking forward to this place. It was horrible --because my shrimp were bad and the mushrooms were rancid. I am well versed in food service since I had my own catering company for 15 years. The waiter's antipathy was such that he never noticed or cared. I would not return.

Bad shrimp and rancid mushrooms in the stir fry. I was so excited to eat here after the reviews I read. The others' food was mediocre at best. I definitely do not understand all the positive reviews.

Gia & Ty have a great menu, and all items whether seafood, vegetarian, or chicken dishes are freshly prepared and beautifully presented. They accomodated a large group at the last minute and their service is outstanding. Worst thing is they are closed on Sunday.

I am one of those "locals" and I think that the food is excellent and I don't understand what one person said about expense? I think the prices are great! Maybe, you haven't tried to get a simple hamburger in the other places in town. It IS located in Waves, not Rodanthe, so please make sure you find them. You... More

This seems to be a place that the locals hang out and for good reason. The food is great, the beers are cold and the atmosphere is friendly. If you like fresh food, Boardwok is the place to go! Save room for dessert...

They call themselves an Asian American restaurant and in the past I have eaten Asian. On this trip, I ordered "Steak and Cake), You can pick from 3 steak options and the "cake" part of this is a delicious crab cake. Hands down, best steak I've eaten from any of the restaurants on Hatteras Island,

The day we went the restaurant was very warm. They opened the front door for more ventilation. During our visit, one of the waitresses went outside to smoke and the smoke came back into the restaurant through the open door. The other waitress smelled like smoke also. The restaurant does not have a children's menu and would not accommodate adding... More

We've been staying in the area for summer vacations for years and more often than not, cook most of our meals because we have great cooks in the group. Everyone takes a night and we eat really well. This year, more eating out and we just found this place by accident looking for a place to shop and buy seafood.... More
