First time here, it was busy, we waited for 30 mins for a table, but it was not bad, waited outside with kids and also got a drink from the bar. When seated it was a little crowded around us and loud but that was part of the great ambiance. We were greeted promptly and with a smile. Drink order... More

One of my favorite places to visit in the Outer Banks! The service was excellent and my my kids really enjoyed the license plates. Very kid friendly! The food was excellent! My husband says the fish tacos are a must with every visit.

Service & food were great. We walked in and expected a long wait--pleasantly surprised that even though we were told 10-15 minutes, I'm not sure we even had to wait 5 minutes. Menu is full of amazing choices. I had the steam broccoli & carrots with steamed shrimp. Great choice. Definitely would recommend.

Our waitress was Christina and she did a fantastic job! My wife had the fish and chips.....which she loved. The Portabella mushroom appetizer was a meal in itself. I had the Clam chowder......it was very good....a bit on the salty side.....but still good enough that I ordered some to go.....and froze it for later. The Peanut Butter Pie was very... More

Wait for dinner on Friday night at 7pm was an hour so kids wouldn't last. Went for lunch instead and enjoyed the family appeal. Easy car seat holder koala basket was provided for newborn. Special fruit drinks with toys for kids. Jalapeño crab balls were very good. Fries with coarse sea salt were excellent. Desserts were great also. Large selection... More

My husband and I had wanted to try Goombays based on the info about it in the "sunny day" guide, so we decided to try to go there during happy hour from 3-6 one evening last week. Boy was that a huge mistake!! It was very crowded with limited parking, and when a spot opened up my husband pulled in... More

We arrived for a early dinner before leaving for home, we were warmly greeted. First impression was dining room was very colorful , and seemed like a casual atmosphere . Walls where painted in bold, bright colors. Loved the art work. Our server was so sweet and really took the time to answer any question we had about the menu.... More
