Dinner last week at Mike Dianna's was a pleasant surprise. This place has a nice atmosphere with low lighting, a lot of tables to accommodate couples or groups (in booths or at tables). Tables were nicely set with white table linens. The restaurant was crowded (6pm) but we did not have to wait for our table (suggest reservations). Our waiter... More

This was one of the finest meals that I have had in a long time. My sister and I shared the surf and turf for two which neither of us could finish our portion. Extremely tender steak and delicious crabcake. This will be a regular stop for us from now on! Nice atmosphere :)

My husband and I went here for a date while vacationing in corolla. We were blown away by their service and food. Best aged, dry rubbed, NY strip steak and split Maine lobster tail we've ever had. We recommend everyone going here.

The location next to kid activities should have been a tip off that this place would be packed with loud children. If you like good food and have kids go here. Don't go of you want a quiet relaxing dinner. Food was very good though. Service was pretty good. Very nice server. This was the loudest place we ate at... More

Everyone knows The Grillroom is the place to go for a great steak dinner, fresh seafood and the best live music in the summer, but some folks may not realize that this should be the only place you go to eat breakfast (technically brunch) on a Sunday on the Outer Banks! There's several good places to eat breakfast on the... More

Our server tonight, Mike, was awesome at explaining the menu and specials! Helped us out and made us feel right at home for first timers at the Grill Room! I got the Salmon which was awesome and the blueberries with it made it perfect. My boyfriend got the crab cakes which he said are the best he's ever had!! We... More

Fantastic Place. The outside bar on the deck is the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail before dinner and listen to some music played by a local musician. Once inside and seated managements commitment to their craft is apparent. Enjoy some hot bread and spiced oil while you wait on your appetizers. Then on to their specialties: the steaks! A... More

Went here with my wife and young boys (10 and 12). Food and service were great. Portions could definitely be a little bigger for the price, but it was very tasty and we'll prepared. Would recommend, especially if going out with adults for a nice meal.

We ate at Mike Dianna's Grill Room about 2 weeks ago while vacationing in Corolla. There were 6 of us (adults) and we were seated immediately, even though we had no reservation. The staff was very pleasant, and the food came out quick, and it was excellent! I had surf & turf, and I loved it. Everyone else had steak,... More
