    The food and our waiter were fantastic. The hostesses need training on how to make guests feel welcomed. We asked for a table outside and she said it would be 2 hours. She sat us at the busiest area in the middle of the dining room and 10 min later there were two tables available outside. Service is a major part of any dining experience. They certainly failed and we will not be back.

    We thoroughly enjoyed the food and the initial contact with our server. She did try asking on our behalf, for one of the specials that had recently sold out prior to our arrival, but to no avail. We greatly appreciated the extra effort. That being said, it took quite a while to get an iced tea and it seemed other tables and specifically locals were receiving a lot more attention than us. We would probably go back, based on the quality of food alone.

    What an enjoyable experience! From Waiter Tom to delicious meals and great cocktails, we will definitely come again for our next trip out to NC. I ordered the pan seared scallops with risotto. It was delicious! We have some dietary restrictions and they were so accommodating! Please “no this” and please “add that”. No attitude, just pleasant accommodations. It was our last night in NC and they made it perfect.

    We celebrated my parents 50th anniversary while staying in Nags Head and wanted to take them to a nice dinner. This restaurant is amazing! Each of our dinners that we ordered were amazing. Great drinks and wonderful service. Brought a nice bottle of wine with since they allow it for a small corkage fee. Definitely recommend dining here. We will definitely go back.

    We had early 5:00 PM seating for five friends. Restaurant is attractive. Service was excellent. We shared appetizers of the Fried Chicken Livers & Shrimp Bruschetta. Both were very good. I had a South Beach Martini which was very refreshing. Four of us had the crab cakes & the other had salmon. We all enjoyed our meals & the experience very much. I had eaten there before years ago but it was the first time for the rest of our party. We all would go back!!

    We have been dining at OBVD for years and it never disappoints. Food and service are always top notch and the wine selection for reds excellent. One improvement would be to offer a greater selection of select white. It was rather noisy this trip as we had a large table nearby that was rather "loud." But ... all in all we will be back.

    We love going to this restaurant every year. The food is always great and the servers and staff are always friendly. The only reason I rated the food a 3 is because our fish was dry. I know restaurants are having issues with getting staff and new chefs etc. so I definitely give them a pass. We look forward to going back next year. Don't forget to order a dessert martini. They are to die for!
