Loved this place! Food was fantastic, server was sweet and attentive. Great pricing! We sat outside looking over the sound, and the view was wonderful, kite boarders were out and they're fun to watch!

The waitress was not attentive even though there were few customers. The meal was average. The waitress said on the new menu all refills on soft drinks will be .99. Go further down the road you will be happier.

I have eaten here often. We have a house near here, and as someone with Celiac, when you find a place you can safely eat you go back. I've taken many family members here, and they have always been pleased. The options for celiacs is limited and the food is ok. I rated it very good because I feel safe... More

We saw the signs for this restaurant but, once in the area, we could not find the actual restaurant. The signage was terrible. We almost gave up when we finally saw a sign. Once inside, the food was very good indeed. Mark had fish flounder, and I had shrimp. Lovely, tasty and nice light batter. There was a really nice... More

Ate lunch and dinner here. The food was good and we had great service. Tried a couple different drinks at the recommendation of the bar tender / server and was not disappointed. Spectacular sunset views can be seen from here.

We were just there for a bowl of seafood chowder, which was delicious. Nice place & I expect we will go back the next time we are in Rodanthe. Very clean - nice view. Dog friendly balcony.

My husband & I enjoyed Good Winds Seafood & Wine bar near Waves/Salvo, North Carolina. Their house wines were excellent. We ordered the scallop alfredo & shrimp pesto with salads. Both were excellent. My food allergies were respected by the kitchen. Service was great.

We had high hopes as we walked in and were seated right away by the window with a beautiful view of the sound sunset. Then it all went downhill from there as we waited forever for someone to greet us and take our drink order. We order drinks, hushpuppies and chicken tenders for our daughter. My husband was looking forward... More

We went in the off season (2 weeks after Labor Day) and didn't find the food very impressive. The overpriced ($6/cup) seafood chowder was very good though. The rest of our meals were just ok. Someone needs to tell the cook (for sure no chef) to stop over cooking the Mahi! This is not fresh either, just the usual frozen... More

We had dinner at Good Winds twice during our stay in Rodanthe. Both times the food was excellent and the service was great. The view of the sound can't be beat, all of their portions are very generous and their fried seafood platters are ginormous!
