Love this place, great view, if you catch a special you will be in for a treat such as crab legs and shrimp. Yum. This place has GREAT seafood and cooked to perfection. You can catch a beautiful sunset here.

Best blackened tuna bites, I've ever had. Really everything we had to eat there was great. Do recommend.

Great view of sound at sunset. Too bad the food was bad and way overpriced. Service was slow. Not recommended. Fish tacos were recommended but fish tasted bad not to mention it seemed to have been prepared and left sitting out while everyone else's meal at our table was prepared. Rice pilaf was clearly cooked early in the day and... More

During our last trip to Rodanthe, we were ready to enjoy some seafood and I wanted something nicer than just a fried seafood basket. We did not want to have to drive too far either. After researching the rather limited options in the Rodanthe area online and viewing the posted menus, we decided on Good Winds. We went on a... More

This was always our "go to" place on our vacation, however, upon this last visit we found the food to be somewhat mediocre and it appears the price has gone up. The service is always excellent and they do have an extensive beer and wine menu. Maybe a better place to get drinks than food. Was a tad disappointed on... More

One night I had a fried seafood combo, was average. The other night I had some great crab cakes. Others had various items, including the various fish tacos and mussels which... More

Staying on Hatteras Island the food options are limited. We were looking for a place that could accommodate 13 people (a few picky eaters) and wasnt a far drive. The wait on a weekday night for our party was 30-40 minutes. This was no big deal as we called ahead and were aware of the wait. Our server was very... More

This is a great place for dinner. They have a great Caesar Salad for me and my husband always enjoys an oyster Po boy, fish tacos or crabcakes. We are local so we don't go slot but it is a favorite! Go early or be prepared to wait as it is a popular place in season. Enjoy!!
