Appetizer of calamari was mediocre, their cilantro sauce was tasty. The tuna entree was small in portion but properly cooked. Blackened seasoning was nothing special, very salty. The buffalo wrap was middle of the road, nothing special, nothing bad. Service was great...our waitress was prompt and also offered recommendations and fielded questions.

I went in a few times. Not really impressed. I got a burger and mashed potatoes and they were quite horrible. It was my 2nd attempt. Doubt I'll go back.

I have been going here since the early 80s, once was RVs, Frisco, etc. Food is still good, great service. We had a gathering of friends and we ordered just about evey app they serve, winners! Bar tender can really hustle. Pool tables and games for the kids. It was too hot to eat outside, but that is a good... More

I was really there for the beer but the meal was great. Everyone at our table was impressed with their meals. The service was very good too.

We arrived at about 130pm, our house was not going to be ready until 4pm. The ten of us had a relaxing lunch of burgers, sandwiches and pizza. The burgers were large and delicious. I had the Kansas City burger and loved it. My wife has the club sandwich and another person in our group had the pizza. The pizza... More

Their chicken fingers are breaded by hand daily and out of this world! They have tons of beer on tap, a large bar and game room with pool, darts and shuffleboard. You can play corn hole on their huge outside deck.

Our family of four showed up around dinner time and there were not many people in the joint. Looked like a neighborhood sports bar kind of place. We had some burgers and fries and they were fine. No complaints about the food or service. Prices were typical of the OBX in summer. Had a member of our party with a... More

Very few customers when we arrived at ideal dinner time. We were seated in a booth, that quickly became a melting zone. After we placed our order, we asked to move, and we're able to move to a cooler location. Food was adequate and service was ok. Thankfully we had coupons to use for our meals. Probably not a repeating... More

We have been coming here for years and Longboards has always been a great place to eat, drink and have fun... Prices are good and there is always a special drink of the day, food is always good and just about every type you could want...

We ordered takeout wings for the Super Bowl four hours prior to pick up time. On arrival, it took them almost 25 minutes to get our order together. Just completely poor service. Wow.
