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

We six sat for dinner and ordered appetizers. Clams on the 1/2 shell and presented as little neck cherrystones. Well, there is no such clam. However we ordered a dozen each. THEY WERE THE SIZE OF DIMES!!! We were rushed through courses, not being able to finish an appetizer before dinner was put down. Our server, and THE MANAGER were... More

We went here for lunch twice during our stay. The crab cakes were great, serving sizes are generous. The fresh steamed crab legs, their signature, are delicious. They had the best hugs puppies on the Outerbanks. Good selection of standard and specialty beers. The fish tacos, fried shrimp scallops, all good!

Love coming to North Banks every year. One of my favorite spots on the OBX. The seafood platter is outstanding...delicately fried oysters, huge shrimp and the Atlantic white fish is so light and delicious! I can't eat scallops so they threw on a few extra shrimp. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. Small but great restaurant!

After driving an hour and a half based off of good reviews the wait was short, and we enjoyed the neighboring shops while we waited. Food was average, not really what you would expect for the price. The waitress was one of the worse I've ever experienced. Seemed nice in the beginning however we placed our drink orders along with... More

My husband and I came here 2 years ago and when we arrived for vacation this year knew we had to go back. We sat at the bar and had great service! Drinks were made perfectly and the food was to die for. We both had the king claws shrimp and clams. Definitely would recommend even if there is a... More

The food was normal fare that you get in a bar environment We had the fried oysters and shrimp wrap. They were just ok. The waiter was trying to do everything so he never came back to the table to refill drinks or check on us. In all fairness he was waiting on about 10 four top tables , cleaning... More
