Tasty!

This place was really good.. I had the portobello burger (their vegetarian option) and it was delish. The hushpuppies were also tasty. The waitress was really nice and got everything right in our party of 11. Plus the view over the water was beautiful. We will definitely be back again next year.

Beautiful view of the sound - especially at sunset. We have dined at Good Winds at least a half dozen times and have always been pleased with our dinners.

We just arrived in Rodanthe and we were looking forward to eating some fresh seafood. My wife and I decided on blackened fish tacos. The fish was Mahi, which was fine, but the seasoning just wasn't that good. We expected more from a seafood restaurant. It tasted like Old Bay Seasoning...just thrown on the fish. It came with french fries,... More

The food was pretty good. Music was a little loud, but it was a nice local place with decent prices on seafood.

Party of 7- no waiting, no problem... Sit by the window overlooking the water. Thank you very much! A pound of perfectly cooked crab legs- check. Scallops and hush puppies - both a favorite- both the best we've eaten anywhere in the US. My son's fish platter- phenomenal. Salads- perfectly prepared, particularly my Caesar salad. Crab Cake sandwich a huge... More

Very casual atmosphere with excellent food and very friendly service. The seafood chowder was excellent. Our server was new and our service did start out slow, but ended up fine. We enjoyed our meal

When we walked in the place was empty except for about six people at the bar who were really loud. Turns out they were locals that enjoy their happy hour. Because of the noise we chose to sit on the deck. When we walked by the locals, they were all very friendly and welcoming, and even opened the door for... More

We've been going to Good Winds since they opened and have always enjoyed the food. They used to offer more musical entertainment a couple of nights a week, but seem to have cut back on that. I know they've gone through some owner/management changes, but we have always enjoyed going on a couple different nights for all-you-can-eat fried fish, and... More
