We came to Lucky 12 (thanks to Trip Advisor!) in search of an afternoon out-of-market Phillies game. We liked it so much that some of us made it back a few more times throughout the week. They have all the TV sports packages you could want. The bartenders were friendly, served some great beers and cocktails, and were happy to put the game on for us.
Lucky 12 reminded me of some of the local places back home. When I walked in, I thought it looked like a total dive. But I was shocked to find that their food was really great! We ordered a bunch of typical bar food to share: mozzarella sticks (awesome!), nachos (they were a bit stingy on the cheese, but I'll let that slide), crab bites (soooooooo good!), and pizza. We were so impressed with the pizza that later in the week, we ordered a couple of pies for takeout. It was great!
The atmosphere was a typical bar and way less touristy than most places in OBX. Quite a few locals were there late on a weekday afternoon for beer, conversation, and sports. If you're looking for a place for great drinks with the bonus of great food, definitely check out Lucky 12. We'll be back on our next vacation!
