Place was good and fun but it is more bar than food. Food was good, but nothing special. What you would expect at the beach. In short, if you are looking for a very good meal there are better options. As a bar it is very good, good tap selection and environment.

We love this place and so does everyone else on the OBX. I think they may be expanding and I think they should as our wait time would have been over an hour if we did not get a seat at the bar. We enjoy their raw bar and fish tacos. Great food!

My husband and I are casual fun bar people. We like to sit at the bar, talk to the bartenders and people around us and eat good food and have a few adult beverages. This is the best place in the Outer Banks for just that. There was a wait for a table both nights we went, but we prefer the bar anyway. Both nights the bartenders were attentive and friendly and poured a very good cocktail. The steamed shrimp there is THE BEST!!! We weren't impressed with the crawfish app, but that didn't bother us, nor did it stop us from returning a second time! If we should return to OBX we will absolutely visit Tortuga's again!!

Loved this place, great heat to the foot...try the clam bisque...amazing. The atmosphere had a lot of character (dive bar but very nice)....and the food was delicious. Will definitely go back!

This is a small place on the beach road most will pass. But if u want great food great atmosphere for a reasonable price this is the place to go. Get there early either for lunch or dinner or you will be waiting in a long line. But it's worth it.
