The food is excellent! We enjoyed everything, the steamed spicy shrimp was our favorite. Our food came out quickly and everyone was very nice. We weren't planning on being in this area other than today, but we enjoyed it so much that we are going to try to get there again before we head back to CT.

We only had drinks at the bar, but my stomach grumbled anytime a plate went by. Food looks great and atmosphere is nice. The bartenders are hilarious as well. If you're looking for a nice meal in Corolla you've found the place

We returned to the Outer Banks after an absence of 12 years and were eager to have another dinner at North Banks since the meal there 12 years ago was so memorable. Of course I didn't expect the restaurant to be exactly the same, but I was very disappointed in the atmosphere. It didn't even look like the same restaurant,... More

This restaurant is the go-to place in Corolla! Hands down the best seafood in Corolla! Seafood was fresh and was not over cooked. My husband and I ordered the fried seafood and the seasoning was on-point. We ate our's with a spicey tartar sauce that was delicious. The coleslaw was also very good. What topped it off was the wait... More

My wife and I visited Corolla this month and stopped in for lunch. The service was great, seafood was very fresh and we enjoyed the décor. We will definitely be going back.

The staff at the welcome center suggested this restaurant and we were quite happy they did! We stopped for lunch, had very good sandwiches, with beer and mimosas. Sweet decor--the mosaic wall is gorgeous. Friendly staff, quick service. We enjoyed our afternoon...

The service here was excellent, but the food was average at best, and a bit overpriced. We ate here our first of six days in Corolla and did not return.

We had a rainy day shopping in Corolla last week and decided on lunch here (it's location in the Tim Buck II Shopping center and TA ratings is what made us decide). It was not busy and we were seated in a decent time and manner (nothing noteworthy here though). It was so dark, I had to use my phone's... More

We traveled from Norfolk down for the weekend and stopped for lunch here before going to the beach. Save your money and your taste buds. We have traveled the world and this wasn't worth a $100 for lunch. I could have made the salmon tacos at home for a lot cheaper and definitely tastier. The crabs legs our son ordered... More
