The crab dip was great. The fish and chips was not oily,crispy battered, clean tasting treat. We had an issue with one ordered item but the staff made it right quickly and efficiently. Mistakes happen, they did a great job taking responsibility and ensuring it was right.

My wife and I stopped in at Goombays Sunday evening, hadn't been there in a while was told the wait would be about 15 minutes, we were seated within 5 minutes, I had the Curry Chicken, it was melt in your mouth GOOD! the service was great, only complaint was the noise level in the dinning area, but there is nothing that can be done about that. The food is wonderful, great service, friendly staff and reasonable pricing

We were there 8/11 or 12/14 craving some oysters. The bartender who was extremely unfriendly to the tourists, told us oysters not in season. Ha, they were at other restaurants. The bloody Mary was HORRIBLE. Food was average.

I love Goombay's and always make it a point to have at least one meal there on vacation to OBX. This time we had the crab dip app and it was the most amazing thing ever! It was served with pita that was crispy and soft at the same time with a light seasoning that was delicious. The dip itself was creatmy, decadent, and had a crust on top - it was fantastic!

A fun bar and grill. Bartenders & wait staff are very friendly and hospitable. Excellent service. Seems to have a lot of local regulars who know the staff and each other, The place seems to have a slightly rough edge to it but that turns out to be just loud chatter and humor among the many regulars in the bar area and tourists who join in.. Food was above average for type of restaurant. Several draft beers. Many mixed drinks and specials. VERY good Key Lime pie. We ate dinner there our first night due to proximity to where we were staying. We went back another day for a late beer and desert. Staff is friendly and a good source of local knowledge. The bar has a steamer in if public view and steamed food is very popular. We did not have any but judging by the amount served it must be good.
