Description: Welcome to Amos Mosquito’s Restaurant & Bar – or more affectionately known by locals as “Skeeter’s”. Established in 1999, Amos Mosquito’s offers a family friendly environment with a menu of fresh seafood and a wide variety of creative entrees. While in our first location on the Morehead City Waterfront, and here in our present location on Atlantic Beach overlooking beautiful Bogue Sound, we’ve had one primary goal in mind – to create the most unique, fun, and high quality dining experience that can be found in Eastern North Carolina. We have a seasoned staff of chefs, servers, and hosts who are passionate about making customers happy. Although we specialize in local seafood and offer at least two varieties of fresh fish every night, our menu also features chicken, pork and Sterling Silver beef.We make all our salad dressings, sauces and desserts in house and have a great children’s menu loaded with fun games and mosquito facts.Thursday nights are sushi nights at Amos Mosquito’s. We offer a full menu of fresh, made to order sushi in addition to our regular menu.Amos has a full bar and a wonderful, reasonably priced wine list.Reservations are not accepted, but you may call us to place an order for take out.

Amos Mosquitos is such a fun place for our entire family. Sit on the patio and watch the boats and dolphins in the intercoastal waterway. Such a fantastic theme with fantastic food. My dad liked it so much he bought us all "Skeeters" pub glasses and a "Skeeters" hat for himself. We go back every year!

We thought everything about our meal was just "ok". That is everything except for the price, which we thought was high. Wouldn't go back.

We dined here Nov. 2006 and are planning a trip to return to the area this fall and are looking forward to the excellent food and service again. My kids loved the t-shirts and wear them all the time.

My wife and I dined at "Skeeters" this week. She ordered one of the nightly specials which was a ribeye with rum glaze ($26). Half of the steak was fat and gristle. I had the crab cakes which were average. After complaining about the steak we were told the check would be discounted. They knocked a lousy $6 off the steak and apparently thought we should be pleased. The manager asked if we saw the discount but not if we were satisfied. We weren't and won't make the mistake of returning..

I've lived in Atlantic Beach for over 20 years, and we are actually pretty lucky to have some outstanding restaurants in the area. Tourists normally come to eat at the Sanitary, a huge, on-the-water spot famous for its views and history. Unfortunately, the food is not very good (lots of dishes are microwaved, and many dishes are literally fish sitting next to french fries with no frills) and worst of all, expensive!

Amos Mosquito's, while also expensive for the area, is a different story entirely. Food is beautifully presented, the little details are on-point (the sound of mosquitos buzzing from a hidden speaker in the bathroom is a great touch, each server wears a gas-station shirt with fake names embroidered like Bubba and Honey, etc.) and everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, is absolutely delicious.

I probably sound like I have something to do with the place with this rave--I wish! They are doing great. Make sure to show up early on Thursdays (sushi/karaoke night) and the weekends. A joke around town is that you either eat at 5:30pm or 8:30pm. Showing up at 6:00pm will result in at least a 45 minute wait in the high season.

Enjoy!
