Heard rave recommendations so decided to visit Mama Kwans on our recent trip but left with mixed thoughts ...

Positives
Cocktails ... some with souvenir glass and cheaper refills.
Slow cooked pork - delicious

Negatives
Zero Gluten Free options
Unhelpful wait staff ... possibly because it was late and busy and we had to ask lots of questions about the menu
Cocktails ... despite full bar some are made with 'mixers' - choose carefully!

All in all a mixed review. Glad we found the Black Pelican and Barefoot Bernies for the rest of our dinners out!

This is hands down our go to place when we are in Nags Head. The blackened fish tacos are my absolute favorite. It is a family friendly atmosphere where we can actually take our 3 kids (6 and under) and not worry that they will be too loud! The service is excellent...in fact, I made a comment on this past visit, I was so impressed how quickly and efficiently they cleaned and bussed tables. My kids love their virgin strawberry daiquiris and they always love to bring home their different colored cups! Looking forward to our next trip to Mama Kwans!

Stopped in while we were waiting for our vacation rental to be ready. The food was fresh, the drinks were cold, and the service was awesome. We had a large group and they had no problem accommodating us. I loved the tuna nachos and the garbage plate. If you have kids, they will love the speciality drinks that are on the kid's menu.

What's not to love, the fantastic food or the wonderful service? You get it all here! It's a traditional stop whenever we are on the Outer Banks. The pork plate - coconut shrimp - blackened fish over green salad - crab cake - sesame chicken were excellent as always! It's so nice to have a dining experience where you can tell the staff is happy to be there and does such a great job - smiles all around. Thanks Mama Kwan's, see you next time!
