Liked the vibe, the local beers, and the raw bar. Oysters fresh and tasty. A little tight for the servers. And the servers not spectacular. They kept bringing items destined for another table. We went for lunch and had a 45 minute wait. But you can shop while you wait. They give you a little lobster that lights up and vibrates when your table is ready. Worth a visit to Timbuk II Shopping Plaza and North Banks.

We decided to order takeout from here while on our vacation based on the great reviews the restaurant has received. So glad we did! It's a little hard to find the restaurant in the Tim Buck II shopping area, but it's all the way in the back. Going in to pickup the food, the restaurant seemed really nice and pretty busy too (glad we ordered takeout). I had the North Banks Chicken Breast and it was awesome. Loved the flavors that came from everything that went into this. My husband had the Ultimate Steamer Combo and loved it as well. If you're looking for a great place to get seafood from as well as chicken, this restaurant seems to have it all. Definitely check it out when in OBX!

Stooped in for lunch while shopping the surrounding shops. The menu was thorough but average. I had a flounder sandwich. Nothing special. They have their own basil cream sauce instead of tartar sauce. I wish they had tartar. Petty, I know but being a seafood place, I would expect to have the option.

My wife and I went there for lunch. There was a wait for a table so we decided to sit at the bar. Turned out to be a good choice - the two servers at the bar were friendly and efficient. We chose fried oysters and fried shrimp for our lunches - both were very good. I could have handle a shrimp or two more but the serving size was adequate. There was a nice selection of beers on tap - some local.
