We love this place! We visit a few times every year. It's right across from the beach. They have ice cold drinks and some really good food. We sit at the bar and usually have a few cold drinks and a bite to eats. I love the beach atmosphere and the nice people there.

This place was so good that we decided to have dinner there two nights over our weeklong vacation. The prices were reasonable and the food was fresh. Over the two visits, my group had the fish tacos (spicy but delish), the chowder (a local recipe and very savory), the oyster platter, dinner salad and the amazing key lime pie. The... More

As always our first stop when we arrive at Nags Head. This year was no exception as the food and service was superb. Fantastic Tuna Ruben, Alligator bites, and great Crab Cakes for the family. The first time was so good I had to make my way back for a second Tuna Ruben. I've never been dissapointed and am baffled... More

We visited this restaurant with four adults and three kids. The restaurant is very beach-y and casual. The food was average--boiled shrimp, crab cakes, and fried oysters. The real stand out was the crab dip. I probably wouldn't make it a point to visit this restaurant again-there are too many others that shine at OBX.

This is a great spot to grab a bite while in the OBX. It's walking distance from many vacation homes and the beach. No need to dress up, it's a cool casual place that serves great food and a nice variety of beer. The dinner wait was over an hour, but our late lunch had no wait at all. It... More

Always find time for a meal or two here. Can get very busy, like all places on the beach, but well worth it. Family friendly with great seafood selections.

Overall I had a good experience. We ordered the Al-E-Gator Bites as an appetizer. It was my first time having alligator and I definitely enjoyed it. They have some quality craft beers on the menu. Everyone except for one person in my party were satisfied with their lunches. I can't remember the specifics of the sandwich I ordered because it... More

We went to Goombay's tonight with a party of 10 . Our wait time was only about 20 minutes. Our waitress Erin was fantastic!!!! The food was amazing and the atmosphere was great. We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for family fun and delicious seafood.

We ate here the first night of our vacation. We were staying just down the road, so we walked. We arrived around 6pm and got sat down right away. The food was excellent! I got the Shrimp Cabarete and loved it. Even our kids ate all their food. The service was wonderful too. We will definitely be back!

Our party of nine visited Goombays for lunch today, and very much enjoyed the unique menu and attentive service. Tuna tacos, mahi-mahi fish 'n chips, and grilled salmon entrees were all prepared perfectly and served attentively. Goombays is on our annual "must do" list for our OBX trips, and this year did not disappoint. Enjoy!
