We walked in and sat down quickly. A waitress was with a grin and the right attitude. I ordered a Wedge Salad and a Potabella Sandwich. Started with a dozen oysters fantastic. My Bride had the Grouper basket all well. Maria was the chipper gal and still had her attitude. We enjoyed you will too

We’ve been here many times over the years and this time it just seemed OK. Fish was over cooked a bit and other food items were good, not great. Great service and atmosphere. Will try again next week.

This is a review that is conflicting for me to write. We stopped in twice during our vacation. The first time was mid-afternoon, and seating was plentiful. My Coconut Curry chicken was outstanding, and the rest of the family loved their food as well. Our waitress, Hayley was absolutely fantastic, and the owner was attentive. That visit meant that we stopped back in before our vacation was over. The 2nd visit was later and they were quite busy this time. This time, our wait for 7 was horrible, so we split our party up to lessen our wait time. The hostess, who was more interested in selling merchandise, seemed to lose track of this. They called a party of 3 with our daughter's name, so she double checked and it was confirmed & they were seated. Come to find out that the hostess NEVER wrote the party split down, so she then accused them of stealing somebody else's table. This is after stepping outside to loudly yell at somebody else's children. The owner assured us that everything was good and seated us. Again, the food was great & we got Hayley again as our waitress, and she was awesome again. After the interaction with the hostess, however, we avoided going there again, as we will in the future - there are far too many options there to deal with ungracious, classless, angry hostesses like that.

Across from the beach and the perfect place to hang out any time of Day. Chowder is perfect. Clam strips were best ever. Friendly familiar staff. They steam things right in front of you.

Goombays was a great restaurant very family friendly and right across from the ocean so if you're looking for something close try it out. Goombays had great food and if you come to the Outer Banks you have to get seafood and trust me Goombays has just that. From their delicious steamed crab to their outstanding hot soups anything you try their you will love. A fun little thing they do is if the kids order a Shirley Temple the will put grenadine into a toy shark and then let the kids pour it into the drink, so not only is fun they also get a little souvinear. They have more kid drinks where you can do other things just like that. They also have a bar inside for the adults. Whatever your looking for Goombays has it. It's a terrific restaurant you have to try!
