“Excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012 via mobile

The food was excellent. We had a shrimp and crab cake sandwhich. We decided to get it to go. What service we did receive was mediocre but the food was excellent. I would certainly go back. Fabulous crab cake sandwhich. So fresh!

“Excellent Food, unbeatable service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

The Old Nags Head Cafe is a wonderful transformation of the old Jockey's Ribs. The cuisine is southern seafood with the dishes, especially the lump crabmeat fettucine as one of many star attractions. The food service is superior to much of the service on the beach and the bar is a great place to sit, relax and enjoy a cocktail and some conversation.
All in all, a great little restaurant where I will return frequently.,

“Best Hidden Secret On The OBX”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

On the beach road across from Jockey's Ridge in Nags Head, there is a little restaurant which used to be "Jockey's Ribbs". Just this season they changed the name to "Old Nags Head Cafe" and they have a new menu. The food is incredible!! I had crabmeat fettuccine with diablo pasta as my entre and creme brule for desert. It was the best meal I have had on the OBX hands down!! My husband had the pan fried jumbo lump crab cakes and said they were phenomenal. If you have a chance you have to check it out!! It's fine dining in a quaint, hometown atmosphere. We will be revisiting for sure!
