After walking around Duck, NC shopping we stopped in for a light lunch. I had the Italian sub which I found very delicious with the fresh cold meats and fresh sub roll. Loved the sandwich and my wife loved their salad. The pizza looked very tasty but we didn't have any. I will try some next time I travel here.

The Wave Pizza Cafe is a comfortable, kid friendly spot on the Duck Boardwalk. Plenty of shade for the adults, great Bayside view

WAs down the weekend that Mathew hit. Was looking for a quick bite with a buddy of mine and this place was great. Got a small pepperoni, mushroom and onion. Sat outside to watch the wind blowing in all the clouds. The next day was when it got really bad. Pizza was good, great service.

Wave Pizza is decent. Nothing to rave about, but wasn't at all bad pizza. Nice place to hang by the water and have pizza and a brew.

Very good slices. Pizza was thin crust and cooked perfectly. Enjoyed a slice on the deck overlooking the sound.

This is a great place for some tasty food. We usually go near sunset, have a leisure meal and then walk down the board walk and watch the sunset. The food tastes great. I keep thinking I will get the pizza as it always looks and smells good but I always get the steak sub. It is yummy. This time... More

We came across this place while enjoying the boardwalk and really liked the sun set view while sitting outside. The service was fast for a custom pizza. The place is basic with the benches and tables, paper plates etc. However, the fresh baked pizza and the view is what you get at this place. They also serve all kinds of... More
