We were here for breakfast. The basic breakfast was good and reasonably priced. The biscuits were exceptionally good. The waitress was extremely friendly and attentive to our needs. It was from her that I learned it is truly a family business: started by her grandfather, the kitchen cooks today were her father and brother.

I love to visit Duck and Corolla in the winter time when it's off season and somewhat deserted! I find the stark beauty of the winter beach with mist and fog or overcast to be lovely for photography. On a weekend trip with the girls in February we ate lunch here. First, I would like to point out that in... More

We ordered the steak and cheese sub and the fish tacos. The steak and cheese tasted exactly like I remembered at 9 years old! Both were outstanding; however the... More

Duck is a small quite community located on the OBX of North Carolina. Stopped by on a Saturday afternoon about 20 minutes before the scheduled closing time of 3:00pm (Off Season). Asked if we had time to grab lunch - No Problem. Menu had everything from tuna salad sandwiches to smoked ribs. My wife ordered ribs, fries and baked beans.... More

This place had nice portion sizes, not too big and not too small. We were able to get in and get out in a reasonable amount of time. The food tasted great and the waitress was very friendly. Would go there again.

Our family went for lunch several times during our initial vacations to the OBX. And each time it was a "spur of the moment decision," that in retrospect we should have gone elsewhere. Parking and getting out of the small lot during season is a challenge. The interior is what one would expect from a dive - spartan, crowded, and... More

Good solid lunch. We both had the Reuben sandwich. It was hot, tasty and filling. The wait staff is prompt and polite . Prices are exactly what you'd expect for a sandwich shop.
