We went on opening night this season. They were still working out some kinks but it did not deter from the attentive service and the excellent food. They have an extensive martini list. Very tasty but small, only filling half the martini glass. Rings of Saturn appetizer started us off. I also had lobster bisque which is one of my... More

Yet another wonderful evening at our "go to" restaurant on the Outer Banks. Had the Shrimp Daniel (my favorite) while my husband chose one of the pasta dishes. As expected, everything was wonderful and the friends we were with felt the same. "PJ" is a delightful host and Debbie, our waitress, was attentive, efficient, and just fun! Looking forward to...

I don't write a lot of restaurant reviews, but the Shrimp Daniel I had at Argyles really was one of the best meals I have ever eaten. Ever. This is a nice little place, and the people are all friendly and welcoming, but not overbearing. We've been to the Outer Banks on several occasions before, and I can't believe we... More

My husband ordered the "special". Prime rib from New Zealand. A slab of raw meat arrived that a lion couldn't have chewed. We doubt it had been cooked at all. More distressing was to watch the poor server Debbie trying to catch up while owner PJ preened around the room while doing nothing. He would occasionally lend a limp hand,... More

I am so sorry that you did not enjoy our Prime Rib. I asked Debbie about what happened with your dinner. She said she remembered you and that you wanted your Rime Rib Rare. We served over 16 pieces of that rib that evening and everyone enjoyed it. I asked Debbie why I was not informed, and she said you... More

Just came back from a fabulous meal. The Ahi tuna was the hit of the night at a table of 6. The menu included duck, quail and antelope. The pumpkin cheesecake was the favorite dessert. Friendly, personal service.

Live music had our group, and others, singing along. Pasta with shrimp was great. Salads and burgers also great. Good presentation and portion very adequate. Hot and fresh froes...yumm. Short ribs were 50/50. Two ribs one very fatty and tough the other meaty and tender. We arrived just as it was getting dark, so was the restaurant. Lights on cell... More

While in the Outer Banks we were having a hard time finding a place to eat that had good ratings and reasonable pricing, then we stumbled upon Argyles Sea Salt Grille. What a find! The owner was very friendly and accommodating, taking the time to talk with us and explain the specials for the evening. His wife is the chef... More
