So, my group of 10? 11? went to have dinner together at the recommendation of some locals. I had veggie-something but I really wanted all the crab cakes ordered by my friends. All of them. Even the New Englanders raved about how good = make that great - the crab cakes were. I'm having crab cakes next year. You must... More

After a week long of eating seafood, fried food, fish tacos even my teenage son started to crave for rice. Found this place accidentally while shopping at store next door. Simple standard Chinese menu. But served our cravings right with delicious fried rice. Liked the veggie version. Service is great.

This is the place where the servers and kitchen staff take time to make great food, serve it well, and , despite being crowded treat you like a friend. What more can you ask.

My husband and I were recently in Rodanthe and we wanted to grab a bite before beginning our weekend at the beach. Since it's November, we ran into the issue of most places being closed for the season. Then, we found BoardWok, open for business! It is small and cozy with kind of an "island" feel. I got a crab...

We love going to BoardWok and go at least twice when we visit OBX. We were not disappointed this time, the spring rolls are to die for, very fresh salads and entrees were devoured. Would have tried to make room for dessert if they'd had the chocolate egg rolls but they weren't available this visit. That was the only disappointment.

This was some of the best food I've ever eaten! We decided to stop here after a day in the sun and on the beach. My kids were 'starving'. I am glad we stopped. Seriously some of the best food we've had!

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.
