Very good, loud, but expensive. The menu is not extensive but the choices were wide enough to cover a family of seven with lots of demands!

Service was good. Hush puppies were also good. The bbq pork was not what we expected. Pork was like it was cooked in oven and no flavor not even smoke. Also it was cold. Sauces were ok.

We ate here for breakfast. Food was really good. Biscuits, eggs and pancakes were all a hit with the family. Service was not good. We got up to ask for tea and waitress came back to make a point to tell us to wait for them to come to table. Odd. Then we had to go up to register to... More

BBQ was good...the staff was great! This mom and pop place accomodated my group of 20 people (incl. kids). The staff was great and really friendly. The food was really good too. Most of us tried the bbq...chicken, pork, wings, etc. All were delicious. Our waitress and waiter made sure everyone was doing good. The waitress even went out of... More

We were here for breakfast. The basic breakfast was good and reasonably priced. The biscuits were exceptionally good. The waitress was extremely friendly and attentive to our needs. It was from her that I learned it is truly a family business: started by her grandfather, the kitchen cooks today were her father and brother.

I love to visit Duck and Corolla in the winter time when it's off season and somewhat deserted! I find the stark beauty of the winter beach with mist and fog or overcast to be lovely for photography. On a weekend trip with the girls in February we ate lunch here. First, I would like to point out that in... More

When I lived in Duck twenty-some years ago; we ate at Duck Deli often....usually buying the steak and cheese sub. My husband and I stopped in Sunday during our weekend trip. We ordered the steak and cheese sub and the fish tacos. The steak and cheese tasted exactly like I remembered at 9 years old! Both were outstanding; however the... More

Duck is a small quite community located on the OBX of North Carolina. Stopped by on a Saturday afternoon about 20 minutes before the scheduled closing time of 3:00pm (Off Season). Asked if we had time to grab lunch - No Problem. Menu had everything from tuna salad sandwiches to smoked ribs. My wife ordered ribs, fries and baked beans.... More

This place had nice portion sizes, not too big and not too small. We were able to get in and get out in a reasonable amount of time. The food tasted great and the waitress was very friendly. Would go there again.

Our family went for lunch several times during our initial vacations to the OBX. And each time it was a "spur of the moment decision," that in retrospect we should have gone elsewhere. Parking and getting out of the small lot during season is a challenge. The interior is what one would expect from a dive - spartan, crowded, and... More
