Wonderful food. We all had something different both burgers and seafood was good. They have a market to buy fresh seafood to take home right there.

This place had good, not great, food but was extremely expensive. No atmosphere either--we felt we were eating in a warehouse.

We had an early dinner at sun fish Grill & it was delicious. Crab bite appetizer was fabulous. Husband had shrimp and grits, I had a lobster roll. That was the best one I've ever had. The chocolate martini was made perfectly. Our server was...very nice & kinda busy plus he was also the bartender. I would recommend this place.More

They took my reservation for 16 people but then when we got there we were at 2 tables of 8. They never told me we would be at 2 separate tables. Very awkward as people decided what table to sit at! Said it was because...of COVID but I only booked the reservation a couple days prior. I wish they would have told me we would have been split up because I would have gone somewhere else!! Also they only would serve water by the bottle (at 1.25 a bottle) because of COVID! But they had no problem serving wine, beer, mixed drinks in regular glasses. I felt like the whole night was a scam. Then automatically charged me tip because we were a large group!!!!!More

We chose Sun Fish Grill because of their varied menu. Our family was very mixed on the results. We enjoyed the shrimp and calamari. The ribs and wings were not good

This restaurant is a joke and should just close their doors. Don’t visit!! When we walked in and the restaurant was nearly empty— it should have been an indicator. This restaurant would would not serve drinks in cups, bottles only (water, soda, lemonade) but had...no problem serving alcoholic drinks in glasses with ice. Yet, a Diet Coke was not allowed “due to COVID.” Sounds like a way to make extra money since no other restaurant in Outer Banks had that rule and cups/ice are allowed for alcohol🤷‍♀️ So we decided to go ahead and suck it up and order. We ordered appetizers and told our server we were ready to order (having 5 kids with us), in which he replied “well, I’m not ready to take your order” and went to another table, didn’t put in our appetizers and took their orders.More

Sun Fish is open during the corona virus outbreak and doing take out. They also have spaced tables far apart for anyone who wants to eat at the restaurant. My husband had the Fisherman's Platter which has a variety of seafood- his only complaint was...that it was too much food. I had the fried oysters which were delicious, and my son had the blackened salmon with grilled vegetables.More

The is a nice bar with all the usual bar food you would expect. Have not had anything fresh only frozen dishes. Wings and burgers are average. Tvs galore. Keep expectations real and have fun.

We came in there for lunch while we were shopping. The place wasn't packed, but wasn't empty. We ordered, got our drinks and appetizers, and then waited, then waited some more. We were about to leave, but our waitress assured us our food was coming....It did finally come, but two of the dishes were cold. Mine was totally wrong, but I just ate it, because we had 3 younger kids and we had sat too long already. The waitress tried to get my meal off the bill, then discounted, but the grumpy old man running the place said no to each appeal. We tipped the waitress well, because she did her best!! Don't think we'll be back.More

This is one of the worst restaurants of any genre that I have ever experienced. The food was greasy and cold. When I complained to the owner (an arrogant and disdainful old man by the name of John) I was dismissed and ignored. Do yourself...a favor and skip this oneMore
