The fish tacos were wonderful as was the chicken wrap.....oh but the fries. The fries were perfect and crispy. The honey mustard had a wonderful zip to it and the ranch dressing was tasty. I would definitely go back and I recommend.

We arrived on a Monday without a reservation. There was a twenty to thirty minute wait but the staff was friendly and kept busy watching tables. We were seated and then the staff seemed to forget about us. Other tables seated after us were greeted by their waitress and drink orders were placed. I stopped a waitress who was walking... More

I usually will not write a review, but I had to make a mention. My wife and I had dinner at Coastal Cravings last night and I may have had the BEST shrimp & grits in my life. No, I'm sorry they were the BEST shrimp & grits I have ever had.

We found Cravings on the GF app, with 100% for gf friendliness. We found out from our waitress that a relative of the chef has celiac disease, and so is meticulous about cross contamination. Separate vats for frying, and separate staff working with gf prep, according to the waitress. The crab cake sandwich without the bun and fries was moderately... More

We decided to go to Cravings because of a recommendation from our hotel ( Hampton Inn - Corolla) and we were little bit worried because we were told that it's beside of a gas station. It is physically located next to a gas station but the food and atmosphere is completely un-gas station-like. Our server Kiresty was wonderful - the... More

At first I was kind of shocked to find the this small yet classy restaurant attached to a gas station. However, it turned out to be a fantastic close to the day. My friend and I shared everything and completely agreed on how delicious it all was. The Duck Wontons in a Creole Lobster Sauce were to die for! Their... More

Great lobster roll and fish also returned for crabcakes and they were as great as expected. Restaurant is attached to gas station with limited seating but still great!

We ate here for a late lunch. Food wasn't that great. Fish was sent back as it was hard and dry. Crab legs were good. But, nothing special. Was okay.

To start with, the atmosphere in this restaurant is relaxed and comfortable - a place you can sit and enjoy your food. Booths are spacious and sound levels are perfect. In addition to daily specials, the menu is varied. Our part of four had hush puppies and crab cakes for appetizers. Two of us had the rib eye medium well,... More
