We chose this restaurant because it was close to our condo in Rodanthe. The food was average but we had a window seat next to the water with a good view. We did not have to wait to be seated. The bill for out family of six was about $185. We would go again if we stay nearby. We would... More

It was the view of the sunset that saved my review from being a 1. From the moment we sat down, I felt it was not a good idea. First there were many empty tables but the hostess said we had to share one menu because they ran out. Then we waited and waited for someone to take our drink... More

We had luch the the first day while waiting for our rental to become available. Food was just as good as the first time. They also have an extensive beer selection which made my sons very happy.

We drove all the way from Duck to eat here again. The location is perfect and the food is very good. The portions are big and the service is top notch

We stopped at the Good Winds around 5:30 for an early dinner and were seated without a wait. I ordered a cup of chowder (Chowda as they say) and a Crab Cake and my husband ordered a Drunken Skewer & Flounder stuffed with crabmeat. The chower was excellent ( be sure to ask if it was made fresh today!) full... More

During our OBX vacation, my mom, sister, aunts, and I went on a girls night out and had dinner at Good Winds. It was great! The drinks were good, the sunset outside was gorgeous, the live music was awesome, and the food was great! We really couldn't have asked for a better evening! There was a slight delay on our...

Fabulous view. And that's where it ends. We came here on a mid-week evening and the restaurant was slow with only 3 or 4 tables occupied. Three employees on the floor should have been able to provide at least good service. However it didn't seem they cared too much about us or any of the other tables. One visit to... More

We ate here (8 adults) for lunch and had a great seafood meal. Service was quick and the staff was friendly. Being able to watch the windsurfers from the window when you ate was an experience. Only downside is they have limited seating indoors. They have a patio with seating, however we were there on a very hot day and... More

We visited Good Winds recently for their Sunday brunch. I don't usually visit them in season (little to noisy for my taste, hard to carry on a conversation), but we were entertaining visitors from out of town so I took a chance. Everyone in our party of 5 ordered something different from the menu and everyone loved their selection. My... More
