Description: The most laid back beach grill on the Outer Banks featuring bistro quality Coastal Comfort Food all with a throwback to the surfboard shapers and wave riders on the break! The Shack has an inviting and warm old school driftwood atmosphere with an awesome sandy yard with outdoor games and tables located right on the Beach Road at Mile Post 9, just across from the Sand and Surf.

Cool beach themed atmosphere. Had the barbecue bacon wrapped shrimp, and they were delicious. Bonzer Punch was a good bar specialty drink. The wings were also very good. Defiantly going back next year. They had an area outside with cornhole games.

My husband and I stumbled upon Bonzer's Shack in Kill Devil Hills and it is a must. When you go, you have to try their gorgonzola grits and Jamaican jerk chicken wings

We drove over to nags head and kill devil hills and kitty hawk as total tourists visiting the OBX for the first time in 35 years. We are staying on Roanoke Island in Manteo, thank goodness, as the beachside here is way too busy for our liking. Stopped by chance at Bonzer Shack due to the outside musician which always appeals. The menu is fine for foodies with no caloric worries- but we are not among them. The salad choices which I was seeking still had fried components and the crab based soup was way too heavy cream for a tomatoe crab bisque as advertised. Delicious, yes. Healthy, no. My husband's fresh tuna sandwich was yummy but they would not allow substitution for french fries as the included side which is deadly to those of us watching our caloric intake. Our waitress was from Pennsylvania and could not have been nicer, so they hire nice people. .. a nice beachy surfer theme atmosphere. Just too fattening all around.

Formerly known as Mexicali Brewz, this used to be one of our go to spots for awesome fish tacos and live music outside with corn hole. So of course, we had to try it out. Still has a relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. Bartenders still have a very generous poor. My kids enjoyed it and loved their speciality drinks with surprise toy. I had the flight simulator chicken wings, delicious and different from the norm and a salad with house cilantro lime, also yummy. Husband had the fish tacos which were okay, doesn't like deep fried. Was hoping the tacos were what they used to be...the best in obx just like Mama Kwans (Bonzer's sister restaurant). Please go back to your original fish tacos or we'll have to opt for Mama Kwans. All in all, will go back. Good food, good price, good vibe.
