Excellent. Safe. Food fresh and wonderful.
Great new sound side restaurant in the heart of duck. Great seafood options including steamed shrimp, crab legs and clams. Topped it off with beignets as the sun set right in front of us.
Such great food! And the servers were very attentive! We will be back!
Absolutely fabulous! First time here, excellent food.
We enjoyed shrimp n grits but the beignets were outstanding. All good!
Delicious food, superb service & unbeatable view. Highly recommend the crab dip appetizer & the shrimp and grits entree. The Painkiller was the perfect, refreshing before dinner drink. This is the place if you want to impress!
Metal chairs were a bit uncomfortable but great dinner and appreciated their masks and table distancing
Last night in OBX for us, so we decided to go out to a nicer place. Man, did we nail it. The food was so good that I had to stop and thank the chefs. The view was amazing, and the overall interior of the restaurant was fantastic. I would highly recommend.
Enjoyed the restaurant. Great view! Very good food - a bit eclectic- large portions.
Great dinner got the specialty chef board featuring four great appetizers and four dinner specials.
Sadly, a catastrophe. We were looking forward to a great evening out ... one of our first since the pandemic ... but it definitely didn't live up to reviews or expectations. While the food was very good, the service was a disaster. We were barely seated when the server rushed to our table asking us to order quickly before a "big group" arrived (which ended up being just 6 people at the table behind us). We eventually ordered drinks and a starter as well as entrees, but the entrees arrived in minutes, ahead of the starter and far ahead of our drinks which arrived nearly halfway through our meal. Making matters worse, while we were eating the server brought a 'complementary' dessert (not of our choosing), placing it down on our already crowded table, to 'sit' there while we finished our meals. The bus staff were not wearing masks, and the whole affair was quite disappointing. Hopefully things will improve.
Our waiter was excellent.
The Blue Point continues to be our favorite restaurant in OBX.
Excellent waterfront location - beautiful sunset views! Real nice open kitchen concept interior w high ceilings. Our server was excellent!
Great location, with lovely views of the Currituck Sound (both indoors, from nearly everywhere in the dining area, as well as from the outdoor patio areas). Wonderful food, very creative combinations. Seafood dishes, especially, are very good. And a wonderful wine list, both by the glass and bottle. Highly recommend!
Great meal. Chef’s board it’s awesome.
We had an amazing meal at NC Coast - each of us ordered something different and we all left the table happy. Cocktails were fun, appetizers hit the spot and the mains were fabulous. The Yellow Fin Tuna special was amazing and half of us left with doggie boxes because the portions were generous. Service staff was pleasant and inviting and we had a fabulous eveing. Thanks!
We chose to sit outside so noise wasn't a problem.... I have eaten inside before and when full it can be noisy! The little server we had was OUTSTANDING and she made our visit special.... food was great and the benies are sososo good!! Always my favorite.
Excellent food and remarkably friendly service. The dining room/kitchen is wide open with all hard surfaces, so it was a bit loud. Food portions were large. The craft cocktails were well made and did not skimp.
Great overall experience.
Host was amazing, so sweet, got us right to our table. Ashton was a great server and the food was amazing.
Alex was the best. He promised he would put our group on the wall though! Can’t wait to see our picture when we come back!!!
My kids were pleasantly surprised with the entire experience. Fried cauliflower and crab dip were a fabulous start, entrees even better and warm beignets made for a perfect finale.
Food was great, we had the salmon, and the restaurant was nice but noisy. From a COVID perspective the tables were too close and 98% of the staff were wearing masks under their chins most of the time. This made us uncomfortable. We would definitely go back when the COVID mess is over with, but not before.
The experience was not good. Waiters are supposed to wear masks but our waitress refused even though we asked her to. This is against state law. I’m keeping my fingers crossed but I’m not happy we ate here.
I highly recommend the pork chop. Best one I ever had.
Hands down the best food we have had in obx!!! Great views!! Live music! Thanks for a wonderful night!
Service was great, it’s way too loud in there, the food was OK; small portions but large price.
Beautiful view, amazing food, great service! We ordered blackened scallops, Mahi over a beer salad, and gumbo and all of it was done perfectly. Will definitely come back every year when we are in town!
First time at NC Coast. Saw it being built and excited. We know there is a Red Sky connection and we like their food. First impression: They have a far inadequate parking situation. 11 spaces including Handicap. At 50% occupancy there were zero spaces. Second impression: Which door do you use to enter. No signs, we walked into someone's dining table. Multiple people did this. Once inside, it's waterside cool. Open. RE:COVID 19: Some were wearing masks, others not. Patrons were told via signage, mask required til seated. Some staff wore them, others not. Some wore a mask around their neck???? All surfaces are hard. Metal chairs. Chefs, person standing next to chef area, no masks. She served our apps, one right, one wrong. I heard every clink of glasses, every metal on metal in prep area. No sounds are muffled. But the food is GREAT!!! Specials, both fish, were terrific. Soup and a salad were very nice apps. Beignets for dessert were Cafe du Monde-like. So, I'm conflicted. It's early for NC Coast. They are not the Blue Point, not close. They are not Aqua, either.
Our waitress, both inside and outdoors, was extremely accommodating and friendly. Food was phenomenal and setting was breathtaking at sunset.
Excellent food and service! We’ll definitely be back.
Excellent, fresh food and gorgeous view!
Outstanding all around. Great food and a perfect view. The best in the OBX.
Everything was very good as always. The cauliflower app is to die for, must try it. Clams were very good, and the grass fed ribeye was surprisingly tasty. Nice upbeat feeling.
It was good seafood and everyone enjoyed their meals. I liked the ambience and overall think it was a very nice place.
Wonderful meal as usual!
Love the decoration and set up
Clare was an outstanding server. Cocktails are worth a visit in and of themselves. Only complaint is that crab cakes are NOT served with cabbage as the menu states, and I don’t think they have ever been served with cabbage. Change the menu to brussel sprouts or buy cabbage! 😬. Prob our fav place in OBX. And yes, We Own A House in Duck! Hahaha. Love the drink!
Amazing. Will make this an annual dinner. The chefs board is top 10 meals I’ve ever had.
