Imaginative and pleasing, with a local focus. Fairly noisy due to lots of families. Go at 'off' hours to avoid a wait.

Our family vacations include some family members that are vegan, some that are pescretarian, and some that eat almost anything on the menus... So... we researched and found that The Rundown Cafe offered options for everyone... The Best News was... all were so pleased... we have returned numerous times... Even the traditional family members have loved the vegan options as well.. Hats off to the Rundown Cafe for reaching out to healthy eating....

I ate here twice on this year's trip to the OBX. The Rundown stew is a "do not miss!!" Everything is good and the service is always attentive. And to top it off, the view of the ocean is amazing. I can't wait to go back!!

The reviews of the Rundown Cafe on Tripadvisor were very positive, and it was just a short walk from our hotel, so we gave it a try. We were not disappointed! The service and atmosphere were excellent, but the food was stellar! The menu has a nice mix of items. We tried the Game Fish Burrito and the special of the night--Mahi-Mahi Tacos. Both were delicious, and we I could have made a meal of just the sides--black beans, coconut rice, salsa and guac.
