Unpretentious, retro bar reminiscent of what you might find in a corner neighborhood bar of a large city is the Lucky 12. Decorated in gas and petroleum company signs along with at least 25 Televisions, the Lucky 12 is a great choice to eat, drink, hang out, visit with friends, meet new ones while you are at or near the...

Incredibly disappointed. Was so uncomfortable amongst the dirt, grime, and flies that we had to pay the check and leave before eating our lunch..

Really surprised by your review, wish if this were true you would have asked to speak to a manager on duty or the owner to voice your concerns instead of writing something that can really hurt a business and it's employees. We pride ourselves on a clean establishment and constantly receive compliments on how clean our restaurant is. More

We stopped here because we're from Pittsburgh and wanted to check out Lucky 12 to watch the Steeler home opener in September when we are here again for our beach wedding. We heard this was a Steeler bar. The food was good, I wasn't impressed by any Steeler atmosphere though.

Stopped by at lunchtime to grab 2 pizza's to take back to condo for hungry kids. Grabbed a drink while waiting, friendly bar tender, quick service. Right at $40 just for 2 pizzas, (paid separate for drinks) good food, not "amazing", not bad, just pricey for what we got.

We stopped here after looking at the reveiws on the web. We were loved it . There were six of us (2 adults , 2 teens ,2 children) .......all happy with what they ordered ! They have a very large variety of food. The cook (maybe owner) and waitress were a lot of fun .

Great service. Pizza was burned on the bottom. Very expensive for the quality of food. Wings were ok. I still looking for a place to eat in the outer banks that I would go back to.

I want to apologize for your pizza being burnt. I hope you pointed it out to your server or the manager of duty. As we would have gladly replaced it. More

Everyone enjoyed their food . My daughter and I liked our drinks. Our waiter was very nice and attentive to our needs. It is a popular place. We picked it because it had a good rating and it was close to our hotel. It was a little noisy though .
