“Great food, outstanding service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

Stopped by for a quick lunch with wife and kid. We enjoyed the walk up and order then sit down and they bring the food out to you. Food was great, hot dogs were very good. Selection of food was outstanding! Service was great, no complaints. The dining area is smaller that you would expect, but we were here in winter, outdoor seating was not appealing. We did not wait to get a table to sit and eat. Overall loved the food and the atmosphere here.

“Good Dog”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

This is an Outer Banks Landmark and a must-go everytime I am in Kitty Hawk. My one regret is that I was there for the weekend, and only got to go to Capt'n Frank's once. Two Chicago dogs and a cold beer is quite the treat for lunch. The upper seating deck is new since I was last there, and very nice. You can see the ocean from there.

“Hot dog heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

My boys LOVE hot dogs and they were in heaven at this place. Good dogs, good services, nice place! Although we visited in the off season so the hours were VERY limited, 10a-3p I believe.

Have been going here for years. Hot dogs are good and steamed shrimp is excellent! (Shrimp only served in Summer) staff is friendly and service is quick!

“GREAT food. Weird unclean staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

Food was tops! But costly. The staff were all very unpersonable and i immediately got the feeling that they are unhappy working there. All the staff stood around chatting about partying. One of the waitresses seemed to be under the influence of something, her body was covered in huge red gross welts. Staff really ruined this for me.
