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. I spotted this place while driving through and turned around to check it out. It is a small place with not a lot of seating. One of our party needs a wheelchair to... More

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

Went there at the recommendation of local friends and left disappointed. We had the day's special, BLT, which was little B, lots of L and little T. Good draft beer though!

Came here after being told that the restaurant next store was out of everything for lunch. We were sat promptly and had the waitress with high energy. When I ordered a special beer, she said she wanted to check as they were low (had it!). She recommended the fish sandwich (delicious) as was the clam chowder. Excellent food and service!!

All was prepared well with very generous portions. Our server was very busy and. Did her best to keep up. We had a key lime pie for the... More

My wife had told me in the past how much she and her sister liked the clam chowder here. I finally tried it and now I know why so many people were waiting for their quarts to go. We ate in and our server took care of us in a timely fashion. Who ever does the prep for the chowder... More
