Almost every year, sometimes a couple times a year we make a visit to the Outer Banks and have made it a tradition to visit Owen's Restaurant at least once which becomes my reference point when going to other restaurants. This year we attended the Owen's Thanksgiving buffet (outstanding) but decided to go to Pamlico Jacks the following night encouraged... More

After experiencing First Friday Festivities and Tree Lighting in Manteo, our group of ten was treated to good food and excellent service by our waitress, Rachel. I highly recommend Pamlico Jack's. Manager Doug Tutwiler was very attentive to our group.

Our table tried the fried green tomatoes, she-crab soup, wedge salad and steamed oysters. All were very good. Would definitely return.

We wanted scenery and a quiet, romantic atmosphere to celebrate our anniversary and found it at Pamlico Jacks. Watched the sun go down while eating oysters on the half shell, then enjoyed fresh rockfish with roasted vegetables. The waiter was very helpful with menu selections and local stories. Afterwards, we walked along a boardwalk on the premises. Everything meshed together... More

Pamlico Jack's is a place very near and dear to my fiancée's heart. He used to visit Nags Head twice a year with his father before his passing. We make sure to uphold the tradition of a visit every October, and they do not disappoint. There is a pasta item that is no longer on the menu, and the long... More

Pamlico Jacks is a lovely old fashioned restaurant. The rear of the main dining room is large windows that look out on the sound. The view is very picturesque, especially in the evening when the sun is setting. Service is also a nod back to the days of fine dining. The mixed drinks are simply fantastic and creative. I had...

Don't expect gourmet food, excellent service, or a WOW menu. But for an ok place for dinner with a view (only if you score a good table) this is an ok dining experience.

Great tasting food, be prepared to pay tourist prices. Long wait for seating in high tourism season. Off season usually very little wait. Visit here once a year while in the Outer Banks of NC.

Pamlico Jack's has been a favorite for years while visiting at the Outer Banks. The she crab soup is to die for as it is so creamy with chunks of lump crab meat and a touch of sherry. unfortunatley, the price of a bowl has increased to $11.00. It is worth the splurge! The seafood is always fresh and the... More
