Our waitress had been on the job for three days but she was all smiles and very helpful. The food was very good, and we enjoyed our visit. My husband's beef tenderloin was particularly good. Entrees arrived with delicious, homemade mashed potatoes and perfectly done green beans. A good choice in Corolla!

My husband and I stopped for brunch on Thursday and liked the menu so much, we decided this would be a good place for our family of 10 adults, 2 teens and 2 small children. We asked the manager if that were possible on Saturday evening and he managed to accommodate us all at a single table, which is always tricky. We arrived promptly and were seated just as quickly. Anton, our waiter, was the epitome of patience and precision. He took drink orders quickly, explained the menu and specials, accommodated special requests, and was all you would want from a professional waiter. Food was excellent -- I saw complaints about over cooked tuna in another review, but both my husband and I ordered it rare and it was perfect. The people who ordered shrimp and crab cakes thought they were on the small side, but overall good. Steaks were cooked to perfection. In sum, a bit pricey (but it is the Outer Banks in summer), and we would return again in a minute!

Server was good, very attentive. Hot pepper jelly appetizer, a tablespoon with a dab of goat cheese and a dozen Ritz crackers for $11.95? My 10 oz filet was fine, but my wife’s tuna was just wrong. We always order fresh tuna rare so we know how that’s supposed to come out - seared on the outside and barely warm inside. MD used a good piece of tuna, but it was too thick for a too hot grill, so it was stone cold raw inside. They needed to butterfly the tuna or use a less hot grill. A really hot grill is ideal for steaks not tuna that thick. Too bad, they mangled a good piece of tuna. Not a bad restaurant, but you can a lot better on OBX at that price point. Not unusual to run into overpriced restaurants at vacation destinations…

We began trying to place a delivery or pick up order about 4 pm. Called and was told to use their online order form which would not be activated until 5 pm. So we did. At 5:10 pm we called them back because the web site was not working. They said let me transfer you to our bartender! And oh you’re going to have a long wait!!!! So we hung up. Now we are trying to find another option at 5:30 pm on a Friday night for 10 very hungry people. I am extremely disappointed and angry.

Worse dining experience. Server was also bartender. Reservation at 0700 hrs and at 8:15 still no dinner. Asked the status and was told because I ordered chicken it takes longer. The food was absolutely horrible. Grilled chicken floating in beef broth with mashed potatoes - looked like soup. I paid for it but didn't eat it. My daughter who the a COO of VA Beach restaurants kept me informed on what could have caused the delay but the food was no excuse for poor quality at high prices. Will never go there again.

The receptionist experience was good, but after that it turned downhill pretty quickly. To be fair the waiter may have been new, but in your mid-40s I'm thinking maybe not. The wrong drinks came out, which happens, but the bread oil was spilled over the table, menu and drink menu upon arrival. After taking the menu that was spilled over we were asked what we wanted to eat. A little difficult without the menu. I understand that when in a vacation area you can expect to see higher than usual prices, which I am more than comfortable paying on vacation, but a $14 cocktail that comes in a 8oz glass that is filled to brim with ice seems a little much. To be fair they did bring out a larger glass after a comment was made. Back to the pricing, I think $20 for a crabcake is reasonable, but for one that is bland and underwhelming, again left me thinking there are much better options for a hundred dollar bill for two. I didn't expect an amazing meal, but better seafood and atmosphere than I can get at home far from the beach is something that I did. I apologize for the review, but reviews are why we picked the spot and they were not accurate for our experience, which admittedly are all different.

We had reservations and arrived to a cool greeting by a bored hostess. Waited at least ten minutes before being acknowledged at the table. Had to return the seafood chowder because it was served almost cold, and then the entrees were really over salted. This is not an inexpensive place, so unfortunately cost exceeded value for food.

I will start by saying the steak was good, but nothing great. They only offer you mashed potatoes and green beans as your side, even with kids meals, not a lot of choice and variety, and they appear as a fancy restaurant but served ritz crackers with their spinach dip. We paid $200 for a family of 4, 1 child, 1 teen, 2 adults. I would say overpriced for what your getting and I don’t recommend this restaurant. With all of that said, they were the only place that didn’t have a long wait.

We wanted outdoor seating due to covid, and they have tables but overhead is filled with spider webs and twice a spider dropped down right in the middle of our table while we were eating. Would seem a simple fix to do some cleaning... Food was tasty but portions were really small for the price. $30 crabcake was tiny by Maryland/DC standards. Severely understaffed, as is true everywhere right now, so patience is required.

We had a reservation for 15 on a Thursday night.... it was our first time going there as we usually drive all the way to Basnight's near Manteo out of tradition.... It was excellent and plentiful.... the wait staff handled all the large groups really well. There was not a HUGE variety of vegetables but other than that our crowd was quite pleased. In my humble opinion they could cut down on the quantity of food and still have people happy, especially if the prices could reflect that.

We always dine at Mike Dianna's at least once every trip to the OBX. Great service, seafood, and wine. We tried the pickled platter with cheese added and we enjoyed trying all the different pickled items.

Great food, friendly attentive service, nice to be able to sit with our party of 7. Prices have gone up quite a bit from our last visit - with tip $50/person for entrees only with no drinks. Dining room was very lively and somewhat packed in - our chairs backed into other groups if you weren’t paying attention. Not the ambiance I hoped for for a more upscale obx spot.

Upper scale family-accessible restaurant that easily accommodates groups of 4, 6, 10+ people. Our party of six adults took to the waiter’s recommendations of the crab & shrimp cakes and Amberjack. Each couple ordered one of each to share. Portions are good size, certainly enough share a few bites while having ample to enjoy.

We visited on a Friday evening, which I know can be busy for so many restaurants with Friday and Saturday check-ins/outs. We had a reservation for a large group and were seated right away. Service was quick and friendly. This is that rare place that is friendly to children of all ages and also serves delicious, well-prepared food. We have a toddler and appreciated being able to comfortably share a meal with family on vacation. We will definitely come here again on future visits to OBX.

Sticky table, Old muddy cold coffee, oily deep fried thin potato slices is their home fries. Deep fried bacon. Biscuits were good. We had to ask for side plates and there was no spoon or anything to stir the coffee. Waitress was friendly but did not know the menu or table etiquette. Some of this would have been tolerable and expected at an old school diner or food truck but we paid a high 5 star price.
