Ordered takeout on 10/22/23 for a group of 4. I ordered Garden Salad w Chicken, and NO olives. At home I saw the worse salad I have ever seen- lettuce was already going bad- small rotten, black pieces that I had to pick through. Cucumbers...were very old, filled with small pieces of olives. $18.49 which 3/4 went into garbage. Other 3 friends that were on this order thought food was TERRIBLE also!!!More

Food was BAD. Zero stars. Food was over cooked. Chicken bbq sandwich had bones in it. Mozzarella sticks were dry. No sides came with the sandwiches. Will never order from here again!

Food is good but does not make up for the unfriendly, and dismissive attitude of the staff (women). Began to place an order of the exact same thing.... staffer talked over me and said...LET GET ONE ORDER IN FIRST! in a rude manner. after the...second order was given, the staffer said "it's the same exact order" which is what was said from the start on another visit to give them the benefit of the doubt, we arrive 15 minutes before closing. as we approached the door we here a "NOPE!" from the parking lot. And then a second time followed by "we're closed" to me these examples scream unfriendly. and definitely would not expect from service industry. This a vacation spot and people are generally in a good mood and may dismiss the rudeness of workers and staffers but eventually it will catch up unless they changeMore

We stopped to eat before heading to the beach and we were not disappointed! You order at the counter and then we ate outside. The young man that placed our order was so professional just wish I could remember his name to give him much...appreciated credit. We chose to have deli sandwiches, the Philly, salads, and chicken salad sandwich. All were amazing and served very quickly. They were pretty busy! Will definitely stop in here again if we get back to Duck!More

We popped into Duck Deli on a whim and it really hit the spot. They have a lot of different options on the menu which was great for our large group with some pickier eaters. I loved the mahi tacos! It wasn't the cheapest spot,...but the quality of ingredients is apparent and it's a very convenient location. The staff was extremely friendly as well.More

Food is ok but pricey. For example a chef salad costs $17.99. It was definitely not worth that. Staff is friendly but got multiple parts of our order wrong and one item was missing completely. All orders are packed to go as there is no...indoor seating. There is a courtyard with picnic tables but it was very buggy.More

We were told by one of the store clerks on the boardwalk that this was a great place to grab a bite to eat as pretty much everything was closed. No seating inside just and outdoor area that is shared with an ice place out...back. You order then wait outside It was close to closing time the food was brought out quickly but was just ok, overpriced for what we got. 2 of us had cheeseburgers, one chicken tenders and I believe my husband was BBQ 3 fries and bottled drinks This was just over $70 hard pass next time we are in the areaMore

Stopped here for lunch on our way to our Outer Banks house. The sandwiches were delicious and service was quick. Lots of variety to choose from, so it was hard to decide. The Reuben and BBQ were great. Look forward to visiting again.

Stopped to grab some lunch before finding our house and were surprised to find more than a deli inside. Fresh salad, NC BBQ, tacos, and sandwiches. Everything was very fresh - the salad was incredible. BBQ was very good! Staff was extremely friendly and welcoming,...lots of smiles and cheer. Esp Lori who was at the register and brought food out to tables! They hustled and food came pretty fast. Highly recommend this for a delicious quick lunch!More

No inside seating, only small patio outside with a handful of picnic tables and small tables to seat two. Thankfully we got a picnic table, since we had five in our party. We ordered the tacos, which were pretty good. The “smoked” tuna tasted like...it was from a can. No smoke flavor at all and tasted very very bland. The hamburger was decent. Very very mediocre food. Much better places on the outer banks!!! PASS!More

We stopped for a quick lunch while taking a motorcycle ride today. It was quick and delicious. We are very picky eaters and they were gracious about changing up their standard fare to accommodate our tastes. We will be back!

A great family restaurant. Make sure to get ice cream from Holy Cow (attached). The outdoor seating is perfect for families with wiggly kids. The food we ordered was quite tasty.

This was always our favorite place in outer banks for bbq but the ribs were dry and burnt very disappointing. Could only eat 2 ribs. Sides were good and staff is friendly.

We decided to eat at our timeshare tonight, because a lot of the restaurants are closed on Monday. We chose to do take out at Duck Deli. The person in charge was wonderful, charming, helpful, and working at lightning speed to crank out multiple orders...without getting the least bit flustered (shorthanded.. one new kid that was holding his own!) The food was good! Grilled chicken sandwich’s with fries and potato salad . We we very satisfied.More

We didn't see any breakfast items on the menu we were handed. Maybe you have to ask for one.
