We first heard about this place on the Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” show. It is in Duck and you could easily miss it if you didn’t know it was there. It is attached to a gas station, and the food is wonderful. We ate lunch there after climbing the Currituck Lighthouse. I had the lobster roll and my husband had the crabcake sandwich. We split each in half so we could share. We dined outside, since it was a beautiful day. The servers were very efficient and friendly. Try the raspberry iced tea – it is terrific! We will definitely go back.

“Cravings - not so much after once”
Reviewed May 31, 2014 via mobile

We went for an early dinner and the small interior, behind BP station, was so noisy we couldn't hardly talk to each other in our own party. There were flies everywhere which is something I can't stand to see in a restaurant type setting or anywhere else for that matter. The man who waited on us did work hard to see that we had what was needed. The food was mediocre at best. Just didn't have that "fresh" seafood taste as you'd hope for. Prices were moderate to high for portions but I'd rather pay a few dollars more to get a quality dinner.

“A nice surprise!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

When we went to Duck for Mother's Day, many of our normal "haunts" were not open for the season yet. We asked at our hotel for a nice place for lunch and were told to try the Coastal Cravings "just behind the gas station on Duck Road." HUH? WOW!!! We were pleasantly surprised by the menu choices, quick service and will definitely go back on our next trip to the Outer Banks.

“Great breakfast!”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

Other reviewers are right. It's a random location. But the small interior is really cute and doesn't make you feel like you're in a gas station. We stopped for a breakfast sandwich which was outstanding. They don't have a full breakfast menu so don't expect omelets and a huge variety but what they had was great. Would definitely come back.
