Like others before me, may have kept driving but so glad we stopped. Place is comfortable and clean, like your favorite spot in your neighborhood. I had some of the best shrimp I have ever eaten in the form of a "shrimp burger" which consisted of several large, fresh shrimp lightly breaded and fried served burger style. The hamburger was...

We had a group of 6 on a Friday evening and we were unable to sit together because it was busy and it's a relatively small establishment. No big deal though. The sandwiches are good and the kids loved the French fries and hush puppies. I wish they still had the chicken gyro wrap though that I got in Sept... More

Both times that we have eaten at this restaurant, the food was good. The last time, however, the waitress left a sour taste in our mouth and we will not be back. Although the meal was slow in coming out, we did not mind since we had nowhere to rush off to. When it came to the check, the waitress... More

Went here one evening while on vacation. No wait, which is good for this time of day and this area. Food came out fast and everything tasted pretty good.

After getting caught on ocracoke island later than intended, we had dinner at capt'n rolo's. At 830 pm on a weekday, this was much more bar, than grill. Service was friendly and quick. Range of options both seafood and non-sea food. Total bill was higher than expected for what we got. Not too many choices for a late dinner in... More

Oh my, what a little gem on the Pamlico sound. We were seated quickly. Served promptly and the food was delicious. Great view of the ships. Server was fast and gracious. My family enjoyed all their food. The catfish was the best. A must dine in for all the visitors of OBX. Prices were reasonable. Loved Pops!!

My husband & I stopped in for a late dinner. We were seated quickly even though there were people waiting. The staff was very friendly. I had the fish tacos. They were excellent. My husband had the crabcake basket. Everything was delicious - fresh and house made. Can't wait to go back.
