This is my 4th time to Hatteras Island, but the first time I tried Capt'n Rolo's. I was not disappointed. The waitress was friendly and helpful. Plus, she never stopped running. She was working hard to keep everyone taken care of. Meanwhile, the locals at the bar reminded me of the TV show "Cheers" because they seemed right at home.... More

This is very close to the beach house we rent every summer, and has become our favorite place to eat. Food is delish, locals are super friendly, service is great, & prices are reasonable!! :)

Outstanding food, drinks, and people. Sit at the bar for the best Capt. Rolo's experience. The local folks are the absolute best reason to be here. I only order the specials as they are a true culinary experience.

Like others before me, may have kept driving but so glad we stopped. Place is comfortable and clean, like your favorite spot in your neighborhood. I had some of the best shrimp I have ever eaten in the form of a "shrimp burger" which consisted of several large, fresh shrimp lightly breaded and fried served burger style. The hamburger was...

We had a group of 6 on a Friday evening and we were unable to sit together because it was busy and it's a relatively small establishment. No big deal though. The sandwiches are good and the kids loved the French fries and hush puppies. I wish they still had the chicken gyro wrap though that I got in Sept... More

Both times that we have eaten at this restaurant, the food was good. The last time, however, the waitress left a sour taste in our mouth and we will not be back. Although the meal was slow in coming out, we did not mind since we had nowhere to rush off to. When it came to the check, the waitress... More

Went here one evening while on vacation. No wait, which is good for this time of day and this area. Food came out fast and everything tasted pretty good.

After getting caught on ocracoke island later than intended, we had dinner at capt'n rolo's. At 830 pm on a weekday, this was much more bar, than grill. Service was friendly and quick. Range of options both seafood and non-sea food. Total bill was higher than expected for what we got. Not too many choices for a late dinner in... More
