food prep very good ,excellent waitress ,
food was very well seasoned, overall a very good dining experience.
Great place to eat. Food always good and staff is friendly and efficient.
This our favorite restaurant in the Outer Banks! Staff are friendly and informative. Local seafood and great wine selection!
The table was ready when we arrived. Need to replace broken/soiled corks in both restrooms - it was old & tired. The place wasn't the FF we've known in the past.
Shrimp n Grits: great
Fried oysters/ remoulade sauce: great
No glasses of Proseco..as advertised- only bottles? It wants to be known as a Wine Bar?
Creme brûlée: turned to a watery consistency.
But we did close down the place.
Disappointing dinner. Ciopinno was far too salty and skimpy on seafood. Fried soft shells were over battered and also too salty. I am not overly sensitive to salt but both dishes were ruined by too much salt. Best thing was Chocolate Hurricane dessert . The ice cream cookie dessert was not good. The cookie had no flavor. Ate here over 10 years ago and it was great at that time. Won't be going back.
This place was awesome. Our server was very friendly & knowledgeable of the days specials. He recommended an appetizer as well as an entree. Very relaxing atmosphere.
Food was good as well as the ambiance. The only drawback was that they seemed understaffed. This may just be due to the time of year.
We've been coming here while on our annual vacation for about five years. The food and service are always consistently good. The filet is a particular family favourite.
We were there last week. We were there 3 years ago and it was one of the best restaurants we tried. This year not so great. The guy at the door looked like he just crawled out of bed, we both had filets, both were over cooked. Our waitress was very attentive and very nice.
We chose to eat at Flying Fish Cafe based on the ratings from a travel web site, but we were disappointed with the quality of food, service, and atmosphere. We have dined at most other restaurants listed in the top 5 in the Outer Banks reviews, and the Flying Fish Cafe unfortunately is not in the same league. The fried oysters were so overbreaded that we could hardly find the oyster. My wife's beef tips were inexplicably also breaded and fried. My grilled tuna was good, but average in every way. The wine list is average. We will not plan on returning, I am sorry to say.
Swordfish was excellent so was the service. Wine list by the glass was above average.
Server was very knowledgeable and willing to work with my wife's food allergies. Food was very well prepared and filling. Great wine list.
A pleasant surprise, the outer appearance is no indication of the food quality and well priced wine list. The service was excellent.
This is a great little restaurant that we try to make it to whenever we visit the Outer Banks. It doesn't look like much from the road, but it is quite nice on the inside. The food is consistently excellent. There's no reason to battle the crowds at all of the tourist traps on the island when you can have a great meal here.
Have been living in OBX for a year and still hadn't tried Flying Fish. Turned out amazing for our noisy group of 6. There were only a few other tables dining that night which is surprising considering the great choice of beverages, the wonderful service, and the amazing food!
