Here's why the service was a little slow................as you state, the Moon was packed. Since 100% of our food is cooked from scratch, it takes time and only so many dishes can go out at the same time. We appreciate you saying we have "excellent...More

We’re been coming to OBX for decades - found this restaurant several years ago on recommendation from a foodie friend & again did not disappoint. Went for a late lunch - great fresh fish (tuna & mahi mahi) dishes & staff extremely friendly. Casual atmosphere....More

We timed our most recent visit perfectly and were seated right away, but that is the rare experience. Even with an expanded seating area, there is still a good wait during high eating times, but I promise the food is WORTH THE WAIT! Blue Moon...More

Came with friends food was not good, over priced. Service was slow. Drinks sat empty several times. Manager who came to the table was not nice, made us feel like it was our fault we got poor service. Will not be returning.

scottyprez, I am sorry you did not have a good experience. While your review is very vague and hard to validate, it surely is not what we are all about. We do apologize.

Our desserts are freshly baked daily. We don't always have the same offerings, however, the flourless cake often is offered. I can't guarantee it, but Ibcan guarantee what we have will be fresh. Cheers and bon appetit!
