“Good food in a small building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012 via mobile

We had a good lunch here. It was crowded even in the off-season. Based on reviews on chowhound, I got the fish tacos, which were good. My husband had the jerk chicken, which was appropriately spicy. I also enjoyed the key lime pie. I would eat here again.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

Tortuga's is always a favorite! Everything is delicious. You have to get a side of their fries too with cracked pepper, nothing compares!

“Great Food & Beers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

You can't go wrong with the fish specials! I have not had one I don't like. Love the selection of microbrews.

“Best meal of the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

We had a great time. The margaritas were amazing, and the food was spectacular. Exactly the "beachy", laid back experience we were looking for. We will definitely return next time we're in the Outer Banks.

“Best Beach Bar in NC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

One of the original bars on the beach. Their sushi night offers the best example of fresh sushi here. I often pick up the sandwich special for lunch. Will admit, I don't care for their Nachos but everything else is great.
