“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We had a wonderful luncheon at Dirty Dick's. The Shrimp and Grits and Shrimp Creole were delicious and bountiful. The menu is incredible. The service was great and the prices are inline with the area. The place is fun and clean.

“The food wasn't that good!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

They give you a lot of food but it has that watered down seafood taste. The service was great. The kids liked the frisbees.

“Food is okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Was disappointed in the menu. I thought there would be more on it. The prices were ok.
I don't know if I would be back.
I thing the sighs on the road make if bigger than it is.

“NO SERVICE”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

We stopped by Dirty Dick's for lunch during our vacation in OBX. We were seated promptly, but that was it. After waiting well over five minutes for a server, we got up and left. I might add that the place was not busy at that time. Of note, the prices on the menu were high for what was offered.
