Our family enjoyed multiple meals at Mike Dianna's. Magi Mahi with wild rice and crisp green beans. Ravioli with Zuccini and artichoke. Filet Steak with pasta. All prepared just the way we ordered.

Our annual visits to Corolla are usually days spent on the beach in a large rental house shared by the families of three friends from college. Days at the beach are followed by shared meals. With the children getting older now, we ventured out without the kids to enjoy a dinner out. Mike Dianna's could accommodate our group of 6... More

All the food we ordered was very good, my husband and I ordered the steak and crab cakes, the steak was perfect and the mashed potatoes were amazing. My only negative comment, was the noise level. Lots of large parties, equals lots of noise.

Seated in booth in area where they can seat large groups and a party of 20 sat down just after we ordered. The acoustics are awful so it made an otherwise pleasant meal into a "eat quickly and leave" occasion. Server was great, food came quickly and it was fine, nothing outstanding.

Best meal we had all week. It's on the fancy side (not a beach dive, although everything at the beach is casual) but the food is great, and the atmosphere comfortable.

We have significant dietary tastes and their menu was able to accommodated all of them, including Glutton free, Pescatarian, the three kids meals plus the regular carnivores (myself included in this group). I order one of the salads with a crab cake... More

Al the meals our 9 person family ordered was great. We stood outside the door of Mike & Dianna's Grill to be seated before they opened, waiting at the bar. They seated us as soon as the door opened w/o reservations and the staff was friendly, crab cakes are not the Maryland style with bread crumbs but are broiled so... More

We were visiting the Outer Banks, NC celebrating an 80th birthday as well as a 50th birthday and looking for a couple of nice places to have dinner during the week. This place had great atmosphere, food, drink and staff. Our waitress, Gidget, was awesome! The place was packed and the staff was flying. We had a couple of disconnects... More

A Damn good steak (when I asked for rare, I got a rare steak), good beer selection, and just an all around great dining experience. The Customer service was very friendly and I'll definitely be back for a classy date night with the little lady. Plus they have a bar on their deck out front and they have live bands... More
