Parking is a hazard. The nose-in parking is off highway 12 and so exiting involves backing into traffic. This situation would not pass highway standards today but this place is grandfathered in. Food is marginal at best. The only blight on a lovely town. Was here ten years ago when building my beach house and nearly lost my life leaving... More

My wife, 7yr old, and I went for dinner while on vacation last week. I had a very tasty BBQ sampler with wings, ribs, and chicken. My daughter had a grilled cheese. We all enjoyed the music outdoors, but could've done without the annoying flies.

Fish taco was fresh and great. Location is cute but small. Definitely would eat here again. Service was quick and everyone in my group loved their meal!

This is a must stop for me and my wonderful husband. We have been coming to the Outer Banks for many years and we always stop coming into Duck, during our trip and heading home to Maryland. My husband and I have never been disappointed in the pulled pork and actually look forward to this stop when ever we discuss... More

We did BBQ carryout the first night in Duck, and the food was fabulous! Moist pulled pork on a bun. However, the return visit was not as good because the pound of meat did not taste as good or as fresh as the first visit...we ended up throwing some of it out and did not return again.

Our BBQ sandwich and chicken breast were OK, but not good enough to finish. Service was slow and the restaurant needs a refreshing. We had just driven in and fought the traffic. A friend on the phone mentioned it, and it was past lunch time. You'll probably want to look a bit more. I think we went there twice -... More

We had dinner here on vacation. There was a band playing in the courtyard, it was a nice evening. There were 6 of us and we all ordered different things. Our food was all fabulous and presentation was beautiful. The service was great and they offered lots of options on our order.

This was our first visit to this restaurant. We did carry out and the food was ready quickly. Their menu is varied from seafood to sandwiches and salads. We all got something different and we were all happy with our choices. We will definitely go back.

Stopped here for lunch with our two toddler children. fish tacos were great, as was the BBQ chicken sandwich. A bit on the pricey side ... but we'd come back again.

Was visiting in duck for the first time and went here for subs and a salad. Subs were pretty poor. I could have made better on my own for the price that they charged. My friend ordered a salad with chicken and ended up getting sick. Not sure if it was related but it seemed like food poisoning. Inside was... More
