We dine there every year for our September Birthday celebrations while vacationing and are never disappointed! Ocean Boulevard is always our first suggestion to family and friends visiting the Outer Banks. Food and ambiance outstanding!

This place was such a lovely find! It’s very cute inside, feels local, and the food was spectacular. Having spent a lot of time living nearby and regularly eating my way through NYC, not many meals impress me. This one did. Give it a try!

Great spot in the OBX. One of the best. Great views and value. Excellent food with a locally infused application. Easily accessible and in an area very close to an active beach. Service is good and value is good. Give this restaurant a visit if you are in the area.

Way over priced for the food. Our waiter only came 2 times to our table. My lamb was cooked wrong.. asked for it to be cooked again to medium..still came out with blood dripping... nkt happy at all. Alsi, need new bartenders.. they don't know how to make drinks.

A pure delight as always. Both our dinners were excellent- my snapper was particularly outstanding. So new wines on the list - had a nice dolcetta. This is one of the few places where we get dessert - the nut tart with house made ice cream this time. The service was superb (well, it also happened to be the owner Donny - always a pleasure!)

Amazing food, bit pricey but worth it. I would remind the manager to stock up on Duvels next time I arrive...they ran out of it after our 5th beer.

I was dining alone at the last minute and was able to secure a table. My server was attentive and helped me with the difficult decision of which wonderful appetizer and entree to select. She was right on time in terms of checking in on me without hovering and everything - from my martini to the bread to the burreta cheese salad to the grilled Corvina ... and the macerated strawberry shortcake with honey ice cream ... was DELICIOUS!
