“Not impressed”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Went here on our family vaca. The prices were expensive. Tables were too close to each other. I knew going in they didn't have much other than seafood... Not impressed. A definite tourist trap. Would rather have subway!!!!

“Food was good, pricey targeted at tourists”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

As title says food was good, pricey and the restaurant theme is target for fun loving tourists. We were traveling with teenage boys. Enjoyed a fun restaurant environment. Food is seafood focused. Price is a little more than our usual casual meal price but what we expected just over $100.00 for 4. The boys ordered a large seafood boat that had crab, clams, shrimp and fixins. they enjoyed. I had shrimp and grits-found it good but a little bland. Husband ordered fried shrimp but found better up in Salvo. Our waitress was very nice. She was busy with many tables so service was adequate but we were not blown away. To her credit, she was always on the floor doing something for someone. Hushpuppies were good that come free to the table.

“Overpriced and not that great”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

This place is pretty terrible. Between the outrageous prices (2 people = $80) and the monstrosity of a menu (when asked what the catch of the day was they responded "which one?") I was not impressed.

We enjoyed the company, but the food left much to be desired. The only reason we went was because it was the closest restaurant to our rental and we wanted to drink and relax. We did both, but definitely paid for it!

“Good times and great food”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Great kids menu and our guys loved the Shark Drink for kids. Loads of fresh fish. We ate here twice during our 9 day stay. Mahi one day and Tuna another for me. The vegetable medley isn't your usual corn and green beans. Zucchini, squash, onions - it was yummy! All 5 of us left full and happy with our meal choices.

“A Little Pricey”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We went for our first trip to the famous Dirty Dick's Crab House during our trip to the OBX. We were tired from our drive to the island and were very hungry. We were not impressed with the decor or seating upon our arrival. It took a while to get our order taken and even longer to get our food. The food looked impressive when brought to our table but in actuality it was quite average and very overpriced. We paid nearly $40 for two burgers, the cheapest thing on the menu. They had a nice gift shop, but not good service, price, or taste. There are other restaurants in the area that are much better for the price.
