We stopped in for drinks late one evening. Place was very busy and noisy, fun, "island" atmosphere. A 3 piece band was playing, mostly "Jamaican" style music. It was raining heavily that night, but the bar was fun and the rain didn't matter. Only negative comment is that I ordered a "7 and 7" (Seagrams whiskey) and was told they... More

Relaxing place to enjoy ocean views with family and friends. Steamed Shrimp one of the best on beach. Friendly staff. A must while in OBX.

Can't believe this was our first time having lunch at Fish Heads! We have been to Nags Head many times but this is the first year we walked to the pier for lunch. Enjoyed the food and drinks. Service was good. Atmosphere was fun and lively. Will definitely be back next year!

The peel n eat shrimp was good as well while listening to live music and enjoying cold drinks. Beautiful... More

This was a rare occasion and could not think of a better place to see this than the deck at Fish Heads! We had a few drinks, some great shrimp, some coch fritters, and some fish tacos. Add the sound of the ocean and a full moon- a perfect evening!

We sat on the pier & had lunch.The only negative, if you call it that, is that it was SO windy the umbrellas could not be put up. We had our tasty seafood meal & cool drinks & had our time in the sun all at once. We will go back when we are in OBX again!

I heard of this place from years of advertising listening to the radio, and wanted to give it a go. We went for lunch, and enjoyed sitting on the pier open air. Lots of outdoor seating, but the windy conditions kept us near the bar. Good selection of draught beers available. The food was just average to us. Nothing that... More
