Once again, after an eleven hour trip, it was all worth it to get to eat here. The service and the food never disappoint and the hospitality and drinks are an added bonus. There is no better quality or value anywhere.

North Banks is an awesome place! Fresh seafood --well prepared! We had oysters on the half shell--shucked in front of us! The tuna was local and fresh and cooked great--the shrimp an scallops were also awesome.

Yes this is a wonderful place but I hate endorsing it if means I'm going to have to wait to get seated. I would love it if locals could get an inside track during the season. Otherwise, we have to take our money elsewhere.

Recent trip to meet up with family from Virginia on the Outer Banks. Hotel staff recommend this restuarant. Great choice. Food and service were great. Fried oysters were wonderful.

Functions as raw bar also. Dinner menu is average. Shrimp and Andouille sausage soup OK but nothing special with small serving. Preferred seafood entrees are ho-hum, but quite expensive for what you get: the sides are mediocre. Atmosphere is cliché. However, few options this far...More

Being off-season the North Banks is one of the best restaurants north of Kitty Hawk. The food is excellent and the service very warm and professional. Good bar and table service. Dave North

Seems to be a very popular restaurant but not sure why. My wife and I ordered the crab cakes broiled. Seems they had baked the crab cake earlier and then broiled when ordered. It was not hot..just warm. Does not give you a good feeling...More
