This is my new favorite restaurant! I have been twice and both times have been awesome. The fried rice they serve with the steaks sounds odd but it's the best I've ever had. The house dressing is super yummy, we even got a bottle to take home. I got a ribeye on my first visit and the filet mignon on... More

My husband & I stayed down the street & were looking for a nice dinner, so after searching the internet for options, we tried the Boardwok South. They had a menu that sounded delicious, and they did not dissappoint! While this restaurant is tucked in a little strip mall & doesn't look like much from the outside, it was very... More

This was honestly one of the only restaurants in Salvo that was open when we were down there but that didn't matter as we went here based on other reviews and it did not disappoint! Great food. Casual atmosphere and local vibe. I had an asian dish that was really good and tasty. The portions are not HUGE either which... More

My wife and I asked around only to discover one of the best restaurants on Hatteras Island. It seems to be a hidden gem for the locals but can cater to any size party (there was a table of 15)! The menu is Asian inspired with additional offerings of hand cut steaks and fresh seafood (crab cakes were amazing). I'm... More

No complaints with the food or the service. Had sesame chicken and chicken and broccoli. Both were fresh and tasty. A little pricey for Chinese. Restaurant with a bar and takeout.

We had dinner at the Boardwok South Restaurant and it was outstanding! It has a great location,plenty of parking. It has a nice atmosphere and very nice friendly staff. They have great food and probably the best crab cakes on the island. I highly recommend them if you are in the area!!

My husband and I were searching for a restaurant that was open during the off season for our date night. We stumbled upon this place and were pleasantly surprised. The Cajun tacos as well as the crab cakes were the best that we have ever had. To top it all off the desert for the night was apple pie spring... More

The food we had for dinner here was not that great. Crab cakes were okay but the chicken in the General Tso's Chicken was subpar. Nice atmosphere but we won't be returning.

Service is good, easy to find on Rt 12 in Rodanthe, decor is ok. Their Lo Mein is one of the best we have ever had anywhere, hands down and we go into NYC to Chinatown and dine. If you get it, choose the combo of shrimp, chicken and pork. My kids love the sesame chicken and the chicken w/broccoli.
