We went to Dinky's at the recommendation of a friend, and we are so glad we did. The filet mignon wrapped in bacon was as good as any fancy NYC restaurant. The pasta with Gorgonzola sauce and chicken and spinach was amazing with a portion so large you can share it. There were 8 of us and the accommodated us in less time than it took to order drinks at the bar and get them. A definite place to enjoy dinner!

Been going here every summer since they opened. Words cannot describe how good their food is. The seafood comes right off the docks, and the chef is very creative in preparation. All fresh and tasty. We spend the rest of the year, talking about our next annual visit to Hatteras Village, most importantly, to visit Dinky's. Pleas note, they are packed every night, so get their when they open. They expanded the place a few years back, but still full. You can also sit at the bar and eat. it is a nice place to socialize with locals and visitors alike.

My boyfriend had the Tuna with wasabi sauce and he said it's some of the best he's ever eaten. I had the prime rib and it was delicious. It's not a cheap place to eat--we spent about $120 including tip for one beer, one martini, Tuna dinner and prime rib dinner, and appetizer of Oyster's Rockerfeller but we anticipated the cost and enjoyed the dinner a lot! I'll go back there for sure!
