I love going to Boardwok! The service is warm and genuine, and the vibe is relaxed and accommodating. We went for dinner a couple weeks ago and had the ahi and seaweed salad appetizer, crab soup and the dinner special. Radio Hatteras was the music of choice which we loved! Excellent value for the price, and there is something on... More

We read the reviews and decided to try this place. It seems to be very clean and nice inside but we were not impressed with the food. Some in our party thought the slaw was too spicy. I had lo mein and it did not seem to be fresh made (noodles were stuck together) and everything was an upcharge. We... More

We shared the sashimi tuna appetizer, and were astonished that the portion was so generous and tender. Amazing! Then came the crab cake and scallop dinner with a huge side salad. The crab cake was lightly seasoned and packed solidly with nothing but luscious crab meat, and the five huge juicy scallops were equally delicious. We also enjoyed watching the... More

We stopped in unannounced and we were seated immediately. That's good but makes you wonder with a party of 9. The tuna tacos were done perfect with a red center and fresh taste. The spring rolls were good. The teriyaki chicken was tasty. The General Tso's and sesame chicken were way overdone and jerky. The crab cakes were excellent and... More

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.
