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.

Good menu selections, reasonable wine prices. Friendly and welcoming. Waitress could have been a bit more attentive.

David's Restaurant is one of those great local restaurants that make a trip. 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.

My wife and I have eaten at David's 3 times and look forward to more. The restaurant is less than 10 minutes from I-95 and yet is light-years away from the chain restaurants perched right at the exists. The staff and decore have probably changed little in the last 30 years, which is all to our pleasure. The menu is... More

My husband had the recommended Rockfish. It was cooked beyond well, rock hard! I had lamb chops. They were tough. My husband told the owner our concerns and he seemed unconcerned. Don't think they will survive.

Enjoyed a chef's special, consisting of crabmeat stuffed flounder (large serving by any standard), boiled shrimp served cold, fried oysters, a baked potato, and a salad with house made blue cheese dressing. Wife had chicken piccata with salad and pasta. Very satisfying. Our server, Michelle, made our dinner very enjoyable by her welcoming and friendly manner, accompanied by a thorough... More
