We went twice in a week, and we never repeat a restaurant without a good reason. First time was kicked up shrimp, shrimp and grits and a wedge salad - all excellent (they even make a wedge salad that is unusually good) Second time we...went to try the lettuce wraps and peach cobbler - everything they served was top notch. There will be a wait - they had a line notch trips even mid-week - but they were experts at keeping the lines short and serving everyone without rushing. Servers were helpful and attentive both times.More

We got carry out as we are not eating in restaurants yet due to covid and my health issues. Everything was packaged well. We had lobster dip to start that was delicious. I had scalloped scallops (like scalloped potatoes), mashed potatoes and asparagus that was...wonderful. My husband had crab cakes that were also very good. We came back 2 days later for my birthday to get the black bottom, coconut, pecan pie that was to die for. Everything so good!More

The service was great, the wait wasn't that long, the drinks were good. The only problem was the food wasn't really that good. It was not bad but rather just bland, and for the price point I was expecting something tastier.

Our dinner at "Skeeters" was yet another example of why we rely on Trip Advisor to guide us when we are traveling. Our experience validated why this establishment is #1 on T.A. Though their main parking area is on the small side, they have an...employee stationed in the parking lot to direct you to nearby overflow parking. We were initially told that the wait time (a Tuesday evening) would be 40-50 minutes, but we were seated in 30 minutes. The food was delicious, came out quickly, and the service we received from Georgia Mae was excellent. By the way, they have nice, outdoor waiting areas or you can walk across the street to the pier next to the Oceana Pier restaurant. Our only regret is that we live about 6 hours away, so won't be able to return anytime soon!!More

Though there was a 1 to 1-1/4 hour wait for a table, the host was so professional and courteous. Plus, I think there was genuine honesty in that projection, which is not the case in other restaurants peak-season. Every dish ordered was sumptuous and delivered...fresh and hot. Back to the title of my review... we were fortunate to have secured two stools at the bar after we checked in up front. Good thing because the team there - LISA, PATE, MEGAN, & JACOB took such good care of us from start to finish. Best TEAM ever in my book and I travelled the world on corporate business for 37 years. Well done Team Amos Mosquito's !!!More

Got there at 4:30 got in line but didn't make it in for 1st serving. I was given a beeper and about 20 minutes later got notified and seated. The first big plus was this restaurant serves bread, something you hardly see at Atlantic Beach...for some reason. We were given a small bucket with some small portions of pita, french bread, and cornbread. Ellie Mae who regularly teaches math at school was our waitress and she was excellent! My wife got the oysters and shrimp dinner with fries and cole slaw. The oysters were very small and bland tasting, and the shrimp were small but tasted very good. I ordered the pork chops that I thought were going to be pan-fried but when they came they had a big crust and they were deep fried. They were average as the gravy that came with them was not that good. The mashed potatoes & spinach were very good. The chops would have been better pan-fried with little or no crust. The crowd was big but the restaurant is well staffed and customers are served quickly so there is a quick turnover of the people dining.More

This is a great place. All of our food was wonderful especially the meatloaf. Service was excellent, too. We enjoyed the tabletop S'Mores for dessert. I really wish this place took reservations. But since they don't...I highly recommend being there at least 15 minutes before...they open. Get in line and wait. If you arrive any later, be prepared to wait a long time for a table.More

Amos is the best restaurant in town, evidenced by the 90 minutes we waited for a table (they don't take call ahead seating). The wait was worth it! I had shrimp & grits, one of the best meals I've ever had. The service was very...friendly, and the atmosphere is fun. You should not miss AM's while you're here.More

Great place for a good seafood meal. Food is excellent. The theme of a swampy joint is carried out well. All the waiters and waitresses wear old gas station attendant style shirts with names on them like Bubba, Junior, Honey and Peaches. The staff is...very helpful and friendly and it makes for a fun, tasty dinner evening.More

My wife & I are local to Carteret County and have visited Amos a couple times over the years. Last night our experience at Amos was very disappointing. The wait was over an hour, it’s Big Rock Weekend so we expected this. We went into...the bar for a drink while we waited, the bartender was an older lady that appeared to have no clue how to be a bartender. She was rude and frankly incompetent as a bartender. The food was overall ok but not worth the prices or time wasted. My wife’s steak was full of grizzle and the entire plate tasted like cucumbers. Overall we were disappointed with our experience and will choose another date night restaurant next time.More

Finally! An excellent restaurant with top of the line food, service, and staffing. Now I know why there is a huge line to get in and why people will wait for two hours to be seated! Delicious food at reasonable prices. Thank you Skeeter!

Great evening at this restaurant. Tuna Bowl in a pho broth was extraordinary, full of flavor yet light. One of the specials for the day was a 6 oz. sirloin served on a lobster risotto. The steak was seasoned well but was over-cooked and a...slight disappointment. Service was great and our server did an excellent job.More

No, they do not. To tell you the truth I don’t think I would even want to put my dog in that situation. This place is packed from the time it opens till it closes….no matter what day it is. So the short answer is no.
