I go here every time I visit the Outer Banks an am never disappointed. Doesn't look like much from outside but the service is fast and friendly and they have the best pizza! They also have full bar and pool table.

We went here late Friday night to get something quick to eat. The bartenders did not seem eager to serve us. The 4 of us got a round of drinks and a large pizza and it was over $50. The pizza was boring, nothing unique or special. I would not return.

It has been a tradition to have our first meal on vacation from Lucky 12 Tavern. Had the grilled tuna, while my wife had a crabcake. Both were EXCELLENT choices. We were not disappointed and will return again.

I did not find it clean or the food worth much at all. The clientele seemed more interested in drinking for effect than eating.

Stopped in for a drink and a little snack. Style is between a 60's diner and a bar....outdoor area to eat/drink. Staff were very friendly and the bartender helpful. Definitely would love to stop again

The service wasn't bad but the food was nothing special, certainly not a place to take the family. The prices were about what you would expect.

Great find- came back on several vacations. Kid friendly menu plus adult friendly tap selection means everyone was happy! The crab balls were great, as were the salads- with a hot dressing- cheesesteak and fries cooked in peanut oil. A lot of other tables got pizza and it looked delicious. Get there early to get a table, at 6 our... More

We watched the final four game here. The wings were quite hardy and the pizza was delicious. Service was very accommodating to our family. Fun local place for a beer!
