This is my daughter's favorite restaurant on the OBX. They have a menu that really caters to kids and families. But that doesn't mean they are a seriously good seafood restaurant for adults too. It is very relaxed and friendly with excellent choices and alcohol...More

This winter, Goombays In Kill Devil Hills will be open almost all year. They are closing from roughly mid-January to mid-February only! Not many restaurants here take that short a winter break! :)
