“Awesome Breakfast overlooking the ocean!”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Great servers, fun signage, hot cakes are terrific! But you can get fried herring here too ... unique little restaurant perched on a pier (it moves when the waves are rough!) Kids love it.

“Worth the couple bucks!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

It wobbles a little but def worth the price to walk out on and my girls loved fishing off of it!! We make the pier a "must do" every time we go to the Outer Banks!

“Shallow water”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Paid my first visit to the Nags Head Fishing Pier today. The prices for fishing, bait, etc are reasonable. Like many piers, this one is old and a bit rickety, but suffices. I fished during a bad period during the day, not the fault of the pier, so I caught little. But I certainly enjoyed viewing the dolphins playing off the pier a ways. Maybe that's why the fish were so few.

I found the depth near the pier to be rather shallow. Don't know, but suspect that may not be conducive to luring fish. There are lots of benches to sit on when you choose to sit. There was also a water pipe the length of the pier ... great for washing fishing gear before departing the pier.

And the shop seems well stocked, too.

Not the best pier in the world, but worth a trip or two. No regrets.

By the way, they have a decent restaurant ... and are building a bar on the other side, too. Something for everybody.

“Great Pier”
Reviewed 19 May 2014 via mobile

I can remember seeing this pier when I was a child 30 years ago. The views are great. The people that are fishing are always very nice and will answer any questions you have and will even tell how to catch the most fish. The staff inside the bait shop are wonderful. They gave us a lot of information on things to see and even gave my son a hat.
