“Small place but very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Cravings is a small place with about 10 booths, some only for 2 people. It's airy and pleasant even though it is an older building. The food is overpriced, yet it is delicious and the service is good, though not great. The grilled tuna was excellent as were the pork carnitas and the mini-crabcake plate. The latter cost $12.99 for 6 small crabcakes with remoulade sauce. The waiter got one order wrong but quickly admitted it and went back to get the right order cooked for us. I have to laugh at the review below which advises to go up the street to The Roadside Cafe. Just the opposite! Well, I reviewed that already.

“Dog-friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We were looking for great food in an unpretentious, but comfy, setting. Coastal Cravings was just right. Twice we sat on the porch for lunch with our lab. Both times, the wait staff brought him water and even a bone. The final visit was later at night. The booths are cozy, the beer selection interesting, the dinner satisfying, the fish fresh. This has become a favorite.

“I had the Rockfish and it was outstanding !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

This place is great. We had Oyster Rockefeller, Rockfish and Lobster and it was all as good as it gets. Did I mention that three of the best Jazz musicians were playing while we ate! Best place in Duck to eat !

“still great food, but prices up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Coastal Cravings has undergone some changes. They have renovated and now have wait staff service. Food is still great (especially crab cakes), however prices have increased.
