I bought the crab cake sandwich and it was really good. My friend bought the homemade clam strips and they were delicious. They were the special that day and I highly recommend them.

We went there off season and noted that numerous locals eat there. Casual bar, food and service is excellent and the key lime pie was one of the bests I've had.

Goombay's is a favorite stop on our OBX vacation. They have good specials so there is always something different. There was less spice this year on the steamed shrimp and in the remulode sauce. Great atmosphere and get a dessert!

We chose Goombays because there is a similar restaurant (not affiliated in any way) in Florida where we had very eclectic food. Even though this one wasn't nearly as eclectic, the food was still excellent. We had their crab cakes, Al-E-Gator bites, and the Goombay...More

This winter, Goombays In Kill Devil Hills will be open almost all year. They are closing from roughly mid-January to mid-February only! Not many restaurants here take that short a winter break! :)
