Small and intimate. No reservations. Had great food. I had scallops as an appetizer and then nice, medium-rare duck breast. All our entrees were well prepared. Good service. Wine is priced a little high, though.

One of the few spots open after the storm blew through. We got to select from a fairly extensive local beer list. Great service quality food. We had burger and pizza. Both were well prepared and excellent. Would highly recommend this spot. Great prompt service.

We went to my favorite spot for dinner 3 times in the 2 weeks we recently spent in the OBX. I am always delighted with the food and drinks there! Excellent steaks, chops, seafood and appetizers! Be sure to save room for a Roadside Coffee!

Decor is awesome, food is fantastic and the service is the best. The food is unique, fresh and delicious. It's the kind of place you can dress up for or walk in in a t shirt and shorts and feel comfortable either way.

We rented a home on the Outer Banks for 3 days. We arrived on Sunday afternoon. After getting settled in we headed in to Duck for dinner.

Without a doubt the best tasting burger I've had in ages. Seasoning or whatever put it over the top.
