Steamed seafood
Had an opportunity to eat steamed seafood and clams that are not typically available on the Gulf Coast. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is located in a shopping center and is not large. We dined there about 2 PM on a Saturday and had...More ... read more

Consistently good
My husband and I were lucky enough to be given a gift certificate. We were early so we sat at the bar and chatted with the charming bartender. We chose to enjoy our dinner right at the bar and enjoyed everything we had!!

One of our Favorite Restaurants on the Entire Outer Banks.
As a long time property owner in the area, North Banks is one of our favorite restaurants on the entire Outer Banks. Enter through the front door and see a very long bar with several televisions, along with traditional tables. The vibe is beachy with...More ... read more

Each year for last many, we have gone to this place.  The food is fantastic and the people make the place rock.  If I were to ever own a restaurant it would be much like this concept.  What ever it takes to make a dining establishment successful is a mystery that few get.  These guys... get it. See you in Sept 2019!

Very good food with creative menu options
I was expecting the typical beach restaurant in a tourist town. It is off season and they are obviously taking care of the locals all year around. The food was great, the service was great and I was pleasantly surprised. No matter what time of...More ... read more

Excellent Seafood lunch! I'm old - and don't eat alot - so I got the child's plate of shrimp and french fries: Yummy. $6. I couldn't eat it all! … cream shop, small go cart track next door.........Salt Coast Outfitters couple of doors down. 11/7/18 Columbia sportsware sale. Won't see these prices in Cary/Raleigh.

Really good food
Had lump crab grenades for appetizer and tuna bites both very good. Salmon for entree and it was delicious. My husband had the mixed grill he liked it but thought the tuna steak could have been seasoned better. We enjoyed this place and would recommend...More ... read more

We ate lunch here with my wife, cousin and sister. The restaurant is tucked away in a small shopping center and it’s a little hard to find. I ordered the Fish and Chips and it was excellent. The service was good. I would recommend this...More ... read more

Not a Lot of Seating
A friendly place with pretty good service. Fills up quickly at night because they do not have much seating. Salads are huge and very good. Steamed clams are OK. The crab dip was excellent.
TrayBN via - Oct 11, 2018
Excellent seared Cajun Mahi fish. A little strong on the spices but very tasty and cooked to perfection. Scallops were amazing coupled with a corn hash. Great assortment of craft beers.

One of our go-to places.  If you're lucky enough to get in for dinner in the high season you're lucky, but it's terrific year round (except for January and February).  Fresh seafood prepared exquisitely.  Friendly service.  Reasonable prices.  Try lunch, it's easier to get in.  Small, intimate setting.  This time it was crab grenades ... read more

Excellent service and food. Stopped in for beers and apps, as we had a late dinner reservation elsewhere. Beer selection is varied, but no dark beers on tap tonight as they were out of the stout, had a bottle of brown ale instead. Had a 1/2 dozen raw Oysters and the Crab Grenades. One of the bartenders shucked the oysters at the bar.

North Banks was by far my favorite meal in the OBX. Located smack dab in the middle of the Timbuck II mall, it's easy to miss. The space itself isn't that big, but they have a sister bar next door. We were a relatively large group, but the wait was only half an hour. Not a dealbreaker, especially since you can just walk around and ch ... read more
