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 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.

If you want a sports bar, this works. If you are looking for gourmet this might not be your spot. The bar was full, it took a few moments to get seated it the empty restaurant. Food was good enough, the 5 dollar desserts seemed pricey. I am always irritated when the drinks don't have pricing....so just didn't order any,... More

Happy hour never disappoints. They have great food specials on wings and steamed shrimp, it's always a good time. They have pool tables and shuffle board. At night they have corn hole on their deck. One of my favorites in kitty hawk.

We had a bad meal at this joint. If you were not there for the college game or to drink at the bar you were put in the back in the corner. The food was worse than the service. No matter if you are staving DON"T GO>

I wished we'd taken time & looked at reviews before we choose Longboards to eat. Service was adequate & food was prompt so there's the good side. Bad side was employees smoking on the front porch as we made our way inside, the grill obviously needed to be cleaned, & there was a fly in my drink. Ehhhh
