My husband and I visited this place few days ago based on the TripAdvisor reviews and other reviews posted online. We had blackened tuna nachos that were really delicious to start. We both ordered fish tacos as we heard the bar is famous for it. The fish tacos were disappointment. They were really salty which made me think the fish... More

Apparently the bartender who served us as we ate at the bar was not happy to be working. He ruined our experience. He wasn't outright rude but only smiled at the end of the meal as we were handing him our signed receipt. The food was nothing special, and the drinks overpriced. I think it could have been a much...

My family and I just had dinner here. Everytime we visit, there is always a short wait. The staff is extremely friendly and drinks and the meal were both delivered to us quickly. The garbage plate is my personal favorite and you can't visit without trying the fried greenbeans. Mama Kwans is kid friendly and have fun drinks for kids!... More

I have to say the food and drinks were on point. The décor and atmosphere (I thought was very lovely) however my son who is on the spectrum found it very overwhelming. We had to step out for a little while so he could deal with his sensory issues. However, he was able to come back to the table and... More

My family and I stopped at this restaurant every visit to the Outer Banks. It is one of our favorite places to eat. The atmosphere is a lot of fun and the staff is very friendly. This visit was a little disappointing as they were sitting a party of 23 people prior to our arrival. This was the first time... More

Went there for lunch - was pretty crowded on a weekday. Food was ok, nothing great or exceptional. Service was good. We had fish tacos, salad, etc.
