Ate lunch and dinner here. The food was good and we had great service. Tried a couple different drinks at the recommendation of the bar tender / server and was not disappointed. Spectacular sunset views can be seen from here.

We were just there for a bowl of seafood chowder, which was delicious. Nice place & I expect we will go back the next time we are in Rodanthe. Very clean - nice view. Dog friendly balcony.

My husband & I enjoyed Good Winds Seafood & Wine bar near Waves/Salvo, North Carolina. Their house wines were excellent. We ordered the scallop alfredo & shrimp pesto with salads. Both were excellent. My food allergies were respected by the kitchen. Service was great.

We had high hopes as we walked in and were seated right away by the window with a beautiful view of the sound sunset. Then it all went downhill from there as we waited forever for someone to greet us and take our drink order. We order drinks, hushpuppies and chicken tenders for our daughter. My husband was looking forward... More

We went in the off season (2 weeks after Labor Day) and didn't find the food very impressive. The overpriced ($6/cup) seafood chowder was very good though. The rest of our meals were just ok. Someone needs to tell the cook (for sure no chef) to stop over cooking the Mahi! This is not fresh either, just the usual frozen... More

We had dinner at Good Winds twice during our stay in Rodanthe. Both times the food was excellent and the service was great. The view of the sound can't be beat, all of their portions are very generous and their fried seafood platters are ginormous!

We went in ready to order the deep fried bacon appetizer, the Good Wind's hot mess, and my peanut butter cup dessert. Too bad none of those things were on the menu. The menu listed on TripAdvisor is not current. We ended up with the hush puppies for an appetizer. They were the highlight of the meal. The meals included... More

We are staying at the KOA across the street. My husband has heard of this place and was determined to check it out. Upon arrival the place could use a good flour sweeping and the entry way cleaned up. The place was half empty on a Friday night and it took 10 minutes to get a table. It took another... More

We were there for dinner and loved the drink selection and sunset view. The fried shrimp was fantastic. The server was friendly, but very busy with a large party. We were not in a hurry so it was not a big deal.
