We found the VT&T on Open Table and we're very happy with our experience. Arrived 5 minutes before our reservation and were seated immediately. We both tried a new dish (scallops and quinoa) that was good and 8 local oysters that were also good. Hoped to get a view of the sunset (too cloudy) but would have been a great venue fot it. Would highly recommend you try them if you're in Duck/Corolla area!

The chili roasted tomatoes is an outstanding appetizer-one of the very best we have enjoyed anywhere! Crab cake sandwich was tender and flavorful, with very little filler. Excellent service. Thanks for being open in January!

Love the live music outside on the soundfront on Fridays. Cocktails were great, and featured local craft distillery “Buffalo City’s whiskey. Owner and distiller Buddy Byrum and his wife Sharon were on hand to talk about their small batch craft whiskey. Followed up with dinner. Everything was excellent.

It was our 44th Anniversary. Was seated at a very small table next to a larger one where fireplace is located. Asked to move and they seated us a table closer to the door. Good thing large party with very small loud children celebrating birthday.
Food came out dry. We had the special with fish and couscus. Fished overly cooked. Too much rosemary/thyme in dish. Asked for ranch dressing to finish eating coucus and spinach. No hope for the fish. We come often so we accepted it was an off night. Waiter rushed us. Manager came to deliver ranch and took off 25% of our meals. It won't stop us from coming back, maybe just order the fried chicken sandwich to be sure we will like it.

Best place on the beach for a family holiday get-together, hands down. There were 15 of us there and Shana and assistants had no problem providing great service and the type hospitality we've come to expect at this well run establishment. There were folks of all ages there and we had a great time. Couldn't have asked for a better Thanksgiving holiday time with family.

Reservation choices were 5:00 and 8:15, and it is easy to see why Village Table & Tavern is very popular. Seafood chowder was a very tasty starter. We enjoyed a crabcake sandwich and the Nicoise for our entrees. Add a couple of desserts to go, and we had a very fine Satruday evening. This has become one of our favorites to visit when we are in Duck, and we will return.

Food and the service was excellent as usual!! It was really loud though. Not sure if different noise baffles would help out or some sort of half walls put here and there to slow the spread of the noise.

We were a party of four, each ordering sandwiches (burgers, crabcake, and fish -- blackened mahi) -- all of which were delicious! Also mixed drinks and dessert. Everything was delectable, and we were pleasantly surprised at the moderate prices. Very, very good place to go, especially when in Duck.

We had a very memorable dinner mostly because we were able to witness an incredibly beautiful sunset. The waterfront location of the restaurant on the sound side made it possible to see sunset over calm waters. The food and service were both good but I cannot rate it exceptional. Oysters were very fresh. The southern fried flounder had a very nice coating but the fish itself seemed slightly mushy.
