“Love the steamers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

this is a really great place for steamers. While the place is small, they do not hesitate to allow for large family groups. It does help to call and give warning. they will set the tables to accommodate. Good service, plenty of food and fun atmosphere.

“always one of our stops”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Conveniently located in Timbuck II, it's a very small restaurant though so normally there's a 30-60 minute wait if you try to eat at normal meal times. The service is friendly and quick. I usually indulge in either the crab or shrimp cake sandwich and they are always delicious. Their clam chowder is delicious, very creamy.

“Great Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

We vacation in Corolla every year for the past 12 years. We've been to North Banks several times but this is my first review. On our most recent visit, we just had appetizers. I had the she-crab soup and it was great. My husband had a crab cake and he really enjoyed it. Corolla is a tourist town and high prices should be expected. If you want a delicious meal while saving some money, try North Banks at lunch or just get appetizers.

“Great Seafood and Steaks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Our group wanted seafood and especially lobster on our last night in the OBX. I wanted staek. We visited North Banks and loved it. It was a little pricier than our daily restaurnats but worth it. The food and service were excellent.
