Popped into North Banks Restaurant with casual attire and without a reservation as a last ditch effort to find a decent place that was still open during the stormy, off season. We got a cozy table for 4, ordered raw oysters, oyster shooters w/beer, crab soup, seafood stew, steak filet, broiled crab cakes, and the key lime pie. "Local" oysters... More

If you like salads try arugula with your topic choices... you can create delicious combinations... the "she crab soup" one of the best ones I have ever had... and it goes perfectly with the hush puppies... good atmosphere (it could be a little bit noisy)

Went to the North Banks for a nice dinner. Had a short 20 minute wait off-season but would get there early during the busy part of the year. The do have some daily items that change so its not a bad idea to go there multiple times. They have several draft bears and different bottles as well. The crabmeat hand... More

Can't say enough about this place. The food was outstanding. Great service. You can't pass up the hush puppies. Perhaps the best I've had and I've had a lot of them in my years. The crab grenades appetizer was to die for. Only sorry I didn't take some pictures to post. One of our party of 4 had the fried... More

Had lunch….bloody marys, oysters, and crab grenades. All very good but pricey for lunchtime. There was no wait when we arrived at opening time (1130), by the time we left all tables were filled and more guests coming in.

We have come to Corolla 19 times/years but this was our first at North Banks. Seated immediately. Broad menu. Had the grilled platter and the seafood pasta. Both perfect had us saying oohs and aahs for the exquisite flavors.

This place is very small and was crowded but worth the wait. We waited for an hour but spent the time at the bar around the corner. The texted us when our table was ready and we were very hungry. The food was fantastic. We didn't expect gourmet food at this small restaurant in the shopping plaza. Everything was really... More
