Live in the area and frequent David's often and have never been disappointed. It is a true diamond in the rough for the area.

If you are looking for a... More

Went there for dinner and was surprised by the cozy setting. The service was great but expected more out of the food, we ordered one pasta dish and one fish dish. They were both quite taste less and there was way to much sauce, which made it feel greasy.

Nothing like kicking back and enjoying a great meal in a cozy setting. Food is wonderful. The Sunday lunch buffet is worth it.

The food was mediocre, but this is obviously the best spot for locals to dine and chit chat. The service was exceptional. It's seems to be a great community restaurant to interact with each other.

My wife and I recently were traveling to Carolina Beach, and had the occasion to have dinner at this great local spot. -We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn, in Roanoke Rapids, and asked the folks at the hotel if they could recommend a place to eat....

My wife and I came here for dinner on a Friday night which is “seafood night”. The specials are the regular menu items at slightly reduced prices with a few additional seafood entrees. The menu doesn’t give you a choice of sides or what comes with your dinner. As the menu indicates, you will get your entrée with a salad... More

Extremely friendly and prompt service. Food was quite good, especially for a small town restaurant. I don't think most people would be disappointed. I suspect the negative reviews were written by people who would never be satisfied, or, perhaps David's just had a bad night. That happens.
