BEACH NOURISHMENT - Posted By: paobxlvr on 7/18/2018
I apologize for starting another thread about this but I've been combing through the other threads and am getting all kinds of different info from rental companies and am not sure what to do. (I'm frazzled, lol!) I'm in the process of booking our 2019 vacation and I am being told that beach nourishment for 2019 may not happen. Is that true? For many years, we've stayed in S. Nags Head, but af... [Read Full Post]

LEONARDO'S PIZZA - good
This crust (crispy) pizza with fresh toppings. Service was noticeably very friendly.

THE MAD CRABBER - very good
We ate here last month & thoroughly enjoyed our meals and service. Generous portion sizes. Casual/friendly atmosphere. Pretty darn reasonable for what you get too.

GOOD WINDS SEAFOOD AND WINE BAR - off night?
While this place gets decent reviews, we were pretty underwhelmed when we ate there last month. All of us agreed that our meals were 'okay, but not great'. They were out of several menu items. Service was slow (to be fair, they were slammed) as though they needed more help. The water view is nice and I appreciate the paper straws (vs. plastic).

BOARD WOK - Very good 4.5 stars
We ordered carry-out as our 1st night's dinner. The food was all very good. I would give 4.5 stars if I could.

COLINGTON CAFE THE - A Grand Dame
This used to be one of our favorite places to eat. One thing we liked about it was that it was open out of season, and the food was always thoughtfully prepared and creatively prepared. When we went in April, it was busy, as usual. We were seated upstairs, which was new for us. I got crab cakes and was so disappointed in its preparation. The crab cakes looked like they were large hush puppies... [Read Full Review]
