Amazing find on our first trip to the OBX! We had breakfast, and we are not typically members of the clean plate club, but if we were not in public we would have licked our plates clean!!! Amazing food and delightful service…getting dinner tomorrow

We were looking for a place for a quick bite to eat after our oyster farm tour. This fit the bill. There were five of us and we all fit at the bar. The bartender was very nice. She gave us ice for the oysters...that we had in the car. That afforded us the time to have a couple of beers and some apps. The grouper bites were fantastic! So were the sushi rolls, tempura shrimp and calamari. Obviously others know how good this place is as it was packed by the time we left.More

We stopped while exploring the OBX. Both got grouper, perfectly cooked. This restaurant is also a fish market so fish seems fresh. Has a local dinner feel, which is great. Good friendly service, too.

My tomato crab bisque soup was not as loaded with crab as last year but was toothsome. Their complimentary hush puppies were as delicious in August 2021. My husband’s mahi mahi was also good but he wasn’t raving about it and the teriyaki rice. The...presentation of the fish, mashed potatoes and rice wasn’t appetizing. My top rating is for my crab bisque and hush puppies.More

We enjoyed our visit to the Diamond Shoals Restaurant for lunch on a Tuesday about 1pm. Although there were plenty of customers, we were seated and waited on promptly. Kally was an excellent waitress. The salad bar was fresh and well stocked with all of...our favorites. We will come back again.More

We came to the restaurant around noon, we were seated quickly, & politely greeted by our server, Trisha. The menu had a large variety & my fish wrap was really good. It was a great overall experience.

Friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Fast seating. Waitress was very friendly, prompt and professional in her service. I had the Grouper Basket. It was a 12 on a 1-10 scale. Food was hot when brought to the table and service was excellent.
