had the fish tacos-should have gone to taco bell. The fish was fishy and they covered it up with some kind of seasoning that caused heartburn and distress. The steak sandwich received rave reviews from my dad. The chips and guacamole had the same problem....More

We are sad to hear that you didn't enjoy your meal at Barefoot Bernie's but at the same time pleased that your father "RAVED ABOUT OUT STEAK SANDWICH!" We are always very opened to constructive criticism and go out of our way to accommodate our...More

Like many of the OBX vacationers, we arrived too early to check in and tired after battling incredible traffic for several hours. The atmosphere was very pleasant, but the service was slow considering the late hour (around 1:30 PM) When we did get service the...More

Had lunch here last week, and it was very good. Was surprised how busy it was at lunch, and the service was a little slow, but the food made up for the delay. Best fish tacos I've ever eaten- I would definitely eat here again-

We have been to the Outer Banks a few times and decided to try his place after reading the reviews. The food and the service was really good. Their menu has a great variety to pick from and the prices are reasonable.

Family of 7 had no problems getting a table (short wait). Parking is a little tight. We enjoyed our meals (and when there were tiny discrepancies, they were handled quickly, and complimentary). The kids enjoyed their meal, as did the adults. Scallops, shrimp and grits,...More

The food is about what you would expect from a beach restaurant. Ok quality but nothing special. Good variety so there is something to please everyone. Pricing is midlevel, quantities are pretty large. Service is super-friendly and efficient-- my ice tea was never allowed to...More
