We went in ready to order the deep fried bacon appetizer, the Good Wind's hot mess, and my peanut butter cup dessert. Too bad none of those things were on the menu. The menu listed on TripAdvisor is not current. We ended up with the hush puppies for an appetizer. They were the highlight of the meal. The meals included... More

We are staying at the KOA across the street. My husband has heard of this place and was determined to check it out. Upon arrival the place could use a good flour sweeping and the entry way cleaned up. The place was half empty on a Friday night and it took 10 minutes to get a table. It took another... More

We were there for dinner and loved the drink selection and sunset view. The fried shrimp was fantastic. The server was friendly, but very busy with a large party. We were not in a hurry so it was not a big deal.

Yes, the view is fabulous. But we were extremely disappointed and will not be back. We had just spent 2 days driving up from Florida and we were tired and hungry, otherwise my husband would have sent back the steak he ordered. He ordered New York Strip, that should be good, right? He said it was rancid, not completely spoiled... More

We chose this restaurant because it was close to our condo in Rodanthe. The food was average but we had a window seat next to the water with a good view. We did not have to wait to be seated. The bill for out family of six was about $185. We would go again if we stay nearby. We would... More

It was the view of the sunset that saved my review from being a 1. From the moment we sat down, I felt it was not a good idea. First there were many empty tables but the hostess said we had to share one menu because they ran out. Then we waited and waited for someone to take our drink... More
