While the waitress was nice and patient and service prompt, the menu is not very appetizing and not a lot to select from. Doubt I would return. Did enjoy the décor.

Waited an hour for a table of four....we were told 40 minutes. The waitress was fantastic and the food was piping hot. The crab dip was watery and bland....more like a seafood flavored dip. The shrimp and grits was good, but I don't care for a grit cake in my dish. The oysters were good. I probably would spend this... More

First stop when we got into Duck, and we were just looking for a painkiller and some raw shellfish. They advertise middlenecks for 13 a dozen but what I got were about 3/4" hinge which makes them tiny littlenecks. The coconut shrimp app was five small shrimp lying in a rum sauce for $9. The drinks were also nothing special...her... More

We decided to have some apps and drinks while waiting for our group shopping. The nachos with jerk chicken and queso were right on with our beers. The cheesesteak eggrolls were the bomb as were the steamed shrimp. BUT...we found it kind of hot in the dining room and saw table after table get up due to the heat. We... More

The crab cake sandwich was really good a touch Salty, but the over all flavor was nice. Fries were seriously soggy. Too bad. The coco shrimp was not very flavorful, just coconut and oil. This place use to be... More

We were staying in Nags Head and my sister's kids wanted to go here (why children are choosing restaurants is beyond me). The food was average, the service wasn't great and it was very loud. Next time this is suggested, I will stay on the beach and make my own cocktails.

Driving North on Highway 12, touring the OBX, we decided to stop at Fishbones for a bite of lunch. They had plenty of free parking which also helped our choice. Their location on Currituck Sound, with outside seating overlooking the water was perfect for our needs. The hostess was great and found us immediate outside seating. Our waiter too was... More

Great lunch on the sound with great seafood. Softshell crab was the special and not as expensive as other restaurants in the area. Food was great and the view was even better.

Ordered mushrooms stuffed with crab meat -and topped with prawns....no way. The shrimp was small and very salty. No evidence of crab. Went with someone who said this place was good last year ----not this one. Wait person not friendly, nor engaging. Not going back.
