REVIEWS OF Diamond Shoals Restaurant and Seafood Market IN North Carolina

Joe Orsolini

I have never once had a bad meal here in the 5 years of coming to Hatteras. The sushi at dinner is amazing, the seafood is so fresh and prepared perfectly. Staff is awesome and friendly, I've been a repeat customer since the first time, will definitely be coming back.

Jonathan Edwards

Wife enjoyed the Sushi. Surf and Turf was okay. 6 shrimp and a 6 oz. Steak for 28.00 was a little pricey. Overall was a nice spot to eat. Also we we got there just after 8 and they close at 9 so we were in a hurry so they could get out of there.

Lisa Williams

Took a few minutes to get a seat but it was busy. Hushpuppies were good. Ordered fried shrimp and crab cake. Shrimp was good, personally not impressed with the crab cake, tasted fishy. Mashed potatoes had green onions in them, surprise. Overall it was good and lots to pick from on menu. Oh and menu says Coke products but they recently switched to Pepsi.

Ryan Richards

Not great at all! Service was extremely slow and did not come around very often. Waitress would disappear for quite a while. I ordered St. Louis Ribs that were very dry and I would guess that they sat under the food warmer for far too long. Lastly, our waitress gave us our check and did not come back for roughly 15-20 minutes! I had to walk to the hostess to pay as I was really frustrated. Despite the positive reviews, I would not recommend this place.

Amy Rabren

We had the Mates Platter (fried) and the Philly sushi roll. Our waitress Kelly was super polite and our drinks never hit empty. The Mates Platter was more than my hubby could eat. The fried clams were supurb! The crab cake had a little more breading than some more premium places we've tried but still very good. The Philly roll was so delicious it tasted practically buttery. Oh and try the hush puppies! They are fresh with little corn nibs in them.

Jennifer Watts

Great food, wonderful service! This is the only place we have been to in the island where the soft drinks actually taste good. Family friendly and great atmosphere. Would definitely come back!

Shawn Buchanan

We come here every year and its consistently delicious and a great family atmosphere!

Ashley Sprague

Ate lunch here today with the family. Very good food and service! Definitely will be coming back.

Linda Fagan

The atmosphere was family friendly with quick service. The salad bar was very fresh. Salmon was perfect. Clam chowder was very good. I would recommend this place.

Michele Prevette

Excellent tasting food and great service. All the staff were nice and welcoming. Kelly was our server and she was great! Neat little restaurant and gift shop. The clam chowder is delicious and the crab cakes we're the best I've ever had. Wonderful!

Vicki Adkins

I eat there all the time if you want great please go there and the people are so nice

Christopher O'Connor

Took the family for lunch, the food was delicious and the staff was very friendly. Will definitely be coming back next time we’re in the OBX.

Kim Wriston

We went for lunch today. The wait was minimal, about 5 minutes, but it was definitely busy. The staff were all friendly and our waitress even suggested a substitution of applesauce instead of coleslaw, since our daughter was eating off our meals. The food was really good. I got the clam strip lunch basket and got sweet potato fries instead of regular. My husband got the fried oysters lunch basket with regular fries. I loved the clam strips, but the regular fries were definitely better than the sweet potato fries. Plenty of food for the price. We would visit again.


Great restaurant with really friendly staff. The food was amazing. They serve fresh seafood and fish.

ashley game

The food was good, we had popcorn shrimp, scallops, fried shrimp and clams. The sushi we ordered was also good. The service was slow due to the number of people. The managers were helping out to help cover for the crowd.

Sanket Tripathy

Diamond Shoals was absolutely a fantastic find - amazing food and service. We ended up having dinner all 3 nights of our stay! Their clam chowder and pesto chicken pasta are out of the world. We had smoking eel sushi and that was splendid as well. Service was great as well.. would definitely recommend this place !!!

melissa williams

Super busy when we went and everyone seemed to be rushing around and not really taking the time to listen when we ordered. A few of our parties orders came wrong and food was mediocre at best. And did I mention that it’s incredibly expensive? I was disappointed in the captains plate which was $30 a plate and all fried in the same batter. They offer a free souvenir in exchange for a good review.

Sarah B

Great location and very friendly. The grouper was the star of the show, but there was also a good selection for those that didn't like seafood.

Matthew Grimm

Best clam chowder ever great people and service.great food.must stop before lighthouse.4 th year here and have to stop when down from pa

Re Grisafi

Great spot for breakfast. Nicely sized portions. Food came out quick and hot. Good coffee too.

Greg Wittmeier

I came with a party of 18 people fifteen minutes prior to their lunch close time. Not only did they seat us we got great service and food! Waiter (Kenny) was exceptional and staff was very friendly.

maddie runkle

This is one of my favorite restaurants in OBX. I’ve been coming here since I was 6 weeks old. Very family friendly, incredibly patient wait staff, and very accommodating. 10/10 recommend!

Lucy Duckworth bill

Annoyed!!! No where does it state that sushi is only served after 5. We arranged for our parents to watch our children so my husband and I could have a nice anniversary lunch on vacation but were told no Sushi until 5. I will say the waitress was very nice, but did not stay and we will not be coming back.

Jacob Rudolph

Ate here on the way home. Very good and great prices. Definitely coming again.

Schyler Stout

From start to end this place was very pleasant. First off, we had 12 adults, a toddler and an infant. We didn't call ahead and they didn't bat an eye at our request. Then, our server Kenny was the best! He was so friendly, and patient with all of our shenanigans. He was even very friendly with my son (the infant). Lastly, the food was awesome and fresh! This is my second time at the Outer Banks, and I will definitely be back for the food and good services.

ssocrowder1 .

Came by here for Dinner and our server Vince was excellent. The award winning clam chowder was exquisite. We will be by again in our travels.

Tom DeFalcon

An amazing family friendly environment. Delicious breakfast and outstanding sushi.

Cheryll Sherman

Came recommended by our Campground. I had the grilled mahi, husband had the blackened grouper. Full of flavor and delicious! Would visit again!

Christopher Torrey

Excellent coffee. Excellent food too at fair prices. I had eggs bacon hash browns and french toastand a buttermilk biscuit! All of it was well seasoned and cooked properly. Also they have filtered water that tastes great! Good place for a cheap breakfast for any foodie.

Haley Marie

very nice staff, got the clam strips and was really good!! definitely coming back

Becky M

Breakfast was good, service was a tad slow that day but they were busy so no problem. Visit two was for dinner, three adults and one kid. It took forever to get drinks before and after the order was taken. We ordered one order of salad bar and cup of soup, one salad bar adding a piece of grilled salmon, one kids chicken tenders, and two sushi rolls. It took absolutely way too long, well over an hour. The sushi and soup was out long before a piece of grilled fish and chicken tenders(salad bar was self service).Several parties came and went before we even had our table served. Management took my complaint with not even an offer to comp the teas. They give you these comment cards and ask you to fill it out so you would think they would expect some feedback and be prepared for it. The service made the 85 dollar bill (not including tip) a bit disappointing. We were planning on breakfast again but I don't believe I want to chance a two hour (or longer) breakfast. The sad part was the food was pretty good, but who wants to be at dinner for hours?

Karen Fernandez

Plentiful portions for decent prices, excellent service. Good, solid menu. Recommend!

Hayley Black

Amazing food, breakfast and dinner! And the service is always amazing! Kinda pricey, but it's the best cup of coffee you'll ever have!

Ryan Logue

Clean and comfortable restaurant. Seated and waited on promptly by courteous and kind staff. Food was delicious and reasonably priced.

Tracey Yohe

Good food, good drinks, comfortable atmosphere. Our waitress was very helpful with deciding on food and drinks.

Paul Taylor

Great find! Seven of us came for dinner and everyone loved their meals. Mashed potatoes were phenomenal! Fish was amazing and kids even enjoyed their food.

Julia Prousalis

Best restaurant in area. We come back every year! Captain's platter is to die for and sushi is outstanding!!!

Derek Pflieger

Great food and great atmosphere! Would definitely recommend. Try the crabcake and shrimp!

Orion Joynes

I ordered the full back of St. Louis BBQ ribs. They were juicy and seared to perfection. This place has a great atmosphere and kind timely service, as well as free before-meal hushpuppies!

Carolina Lara

Delicious food and friendly service. I had the shrimp and scallops and it was tasty! Brought my mom for Mother’s Day and she really enjoyed It as well.

Jade White

The food was delicious!! Service was great!! My favorite place to eat breakfast at the beach!! Highly recommend!!

Erica Cousins

The restaurant was dim, but largely pleasant. I had crab cake sandwich with fries and my friend had popcorn shrimp basket with sweet potato fries. Fries were crisp and well seasoned. The crab cake was tasty but there was too much bread for the size of the crab cake. The bathroom was clean but out of paper towels. There were a number of flies annoying us during lunch though in this climate that is hard to avoid. Our waitress was friendly. The food was very quick to come out. Overall good experience.

Hendrik Burger

Great experience, FAST SERVICE Really good onion rings and fried grouper! Did forget to bring out my hushpuppy order though probably due to busy hour.

Lisa Reagle

Food was great! Fish of the day was flounder, mahi and tuna. I had flounder and it was great! Sides were wonderful as well! Nice staff and great service! Sushi was awesome!!!

Vicki Hale

So disappointed, drove 25 miles to arrive at 8pm. Arrived at restaurant, the lady at front counter immediately told us they had just closed even though they're open until 9. Her explanation was, they were short on help, the kitchen was backed up an hour and they close at 9, so therefore she wasn't sitting anyone else. I'm sorry but if you're open until 9, you continue to accept customers upto that point. She apologized and was concerned about us having to wait an hour for food, but we expect to wait when dining out. It just felt like she was ready to go home and made a decision to stop taking customers.

Mike Fisher

Great food. Friendly staff. Definitely a place to check out for sea food

Dale Anne Featheringham

Great place and food. Emily is the best server!

Meghan Keeter

We're going to love your restaurant for a long time. The food is delicious eat in or take away! A great family restaurant!

Sven Sauer

Had a very delicious breakfast there. Would go there again any time! Omelet people: try the salmon omelet!

Lori Noack

Great friendly staff and out of this world food. So good, no photos. Ate it all.


Get the crab bisque! So good. Local and eat here often. Sweet staff up front. Sushi is great, so glad they expanded it. Expensive, but that's island life. Local discount would be nice because we eat here so often. Overall we love it.

Jennifer Kooy

Excellent breskfast egg whites only seafood omelette. Really, really good. Service great. Will be our go to for lunch or dinner as well as the lunch special sounds wonderful!

Skip Leezer

Staff was very friendly, service was quick, and the food was out in a reasonable amount of time. I had the scallops and shrimp and both were excellent. My daughter had a cheeseburger which looked pretty good, too. Prices are a little higher, which is to be expected on the OBX and Hatteras. Just sit back, have a good conversation, and enjoy the food.

josh einsig

We went for dinner with a large party . Once seated we waited for at least 10 minutes before anyone greeted us. The food took another hour to get to our table, the sushi was very good however my entree was with out flavor.

Shannon Mueller

I like how you are always checking in on the tables to make sure they are content.

Kevin Ormand

During our yearly fishing trip to Hatteras we always start the day at Diamond Shoals. Very good and satisfying breakfast that is not at all greasy. Plus they have very nice waitresses and serve the best coffee ever.

mark waybright

This is our second year staying at the Lighthouse View and this is my favorite breakfast spot almost daily. Friendly staff and great food to start my day. Thanks

Cecily Grigson

I really enjoyed the hush puppies and sweet potato waffle fries! Waitress was prompt and nice.

Denise Gerspacher

Captain’s potatoes are the best! I eat them every morning we are staying in the Outer Banks

Brian Tillery

Delicious food, portions were just right, and great service too!

Christina L

Thay were polite and fast.we had 15 people and had very good servis.

Jessica Keeton

Excellent food, we had lunch and dinner here. The sushi was also excellent. Service was great both visits. We would definitely return!

Ricky Winters

Excellent food! The Spanish omelet and steak and eggs were delicious! My son thought the seafood omelet was great! Pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff. I highly recommend it!

EpicFires .

TL;DR: Good for breakfast on your last day at the beach. A bit noisy. On our beach trips, we always come by here on the day we're leaving for breakfast. On the mornings I've eaten here, it is noisy and very populated, but the food comes quickly enough and is delicious, especially when you're a hungry kid who'd just lifted and carried a bunch of bags from cottage to car over the course of half an hour. They have souvenir items for sale at the door, and the wait isn't too long if there is one at all. Gender neutral bathrooms (individual) are a plus for certain folks, and there's also a cozy bar with a television in the corner. Staff are always pleasant.

Robin Clendaniel

highly recommended!! when we vacation here we always plan at least one breakfast here for the pecan pancakes

Brittney Washington

My family of five loved our breakfast. Well priced and nice people. Better restaurant then the other one we tried. Thanks Diamond Shoals.


This is a neat place with cool trinkets and wonderful hospitalization. The staff and the food is lovely. The food is perfectly breaded while maintaining that fresh and “seafood” taste. Very efficient service. Will definitely come back!

Aubrey Ramseur

Delicious food, great selection of drinks, awesome environment for a couple or larger groups. We stayed on the beach within walking distance of this place. We ate here a couple times and had seafood one night and we had sushi the other. The sushi was our favorite! Staff was very friendly and enjoyed working there! Overall, this is a great place to eat!

Jason Shillingburg

Awesome food with great service. We had breakfast one day and sushi on evening. Highly recommend!!

Sarah Thoman

This place is awesome! The sushi is the best I've ever had! The seafood is fresh and has great flacor. Good bar selection of traditional drinks and some local specialties. We definitely recommend it!

Stacie Whaley

After having a rough trip in and getting a late start to our day, Diamond Shoals Restaurant quickly turned our trip around. We came in right at 11 and they were happy to still serve us breakfast. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. The staff were all pleasant and swift. I never once had to ask for a refill our waitress was very attentive and sweet. Next stop will be to the lighthouse which is very nearby. I highly recommend this cozy, friendly, restaurant. Good food and good service is hard to come by, so this place should definitely be a go to on your list!

Tim Toth

Great selection of drinks and a very friendly staff. Their broiled grouper is among the best fish you can find. They also offer a delicious variety of turf to satisfy any palate.

Kristin Johnson

Very good service i enjoyed my experience and the food was amazing i would come again! Anyone who is in the area is lucky to have this great place nearby. Brooke was our waitress and she was very nice and we had no problems

Wendy Conner

We went to Diamond Shoals for the first time and I have to say it was great seafood and the staff were all pretty great as well. I ordered the Shrimp and Crab cake platter and it was delicious. And had plenty left over to bring home!

Jennie R. Hensley

I am in love with this place if I can give this a 10 star rating I definitely would! The service is great!!!!

Matt Hynes

Been coming to Buxton for the last 7 years and this restaurant is always our go to place for breakfast. The staff is always very polite and welcoming and the food is always perfect. We look forward to breakfasts here each day.


Convenient location, and one-stop-shop for dining, gifts, and fresh fish. Quick service and friendly staff. Salad bar and kids menu fill in the gaps of an otherwise seafood-heavy menu. The salmon Reuben with fries is a good special worth getting if it's available the day you visit!

D Kime

Some in our party enjoyed their seafood, others found it so so. Nothing particularly special about the menu or ambience. Service was friendly but extraordinarily slow. Order-to-serve was 45 minutes+. Prices are typical for a vacation destination...not a great value but not extreme either.

Bradlee Darrah

Service was good. Crab soup was amazing. Our entrees were sub par for the price. Wouldnt go out of my way to go back.

Brent Wesolowski

Food was absolutely out of this world and Vanessa was the best waitress we’ve had this vacation! The restaurant was a clean and family friendly place to be!

Haley Cordle

If I could give this place 0 stars I would. We had a child in our party, age 8, and the manager on duty took it upon herself to speak poorly about the child to other staff members, loud enough so other guests with us, could hear. The 8 year old asked the check, excitedly, because she was eager to go across the street to have ice cream at Uncle Eddy’s. The manager then proceeded to go speak to other employees about how rude the little girl at our table was and how she asked for the check. Mind you, the child was never rude. When she was confronted about what was said by a member of our party, she was very quick to try and take back what she had been saying. Not sure what the customer service standard is here, but we regularly visit the area and we have NEVER experienced something like this, in such a friendly area. Also, a grown adult talking about a child is immature and poor customer service. We will not be back.

A Healy

Great little gem of a place. Clean, friendly, good menu. Cute little gift shop to peruse while you wait to be seated. Has some of the best clam strips I have ever had. Friendly staff, good food, good beer choices. Top notch.

Kendra Campbell

This place is busy for a reason. Excellent food. Will definitely be back.

David Sosa

I am local, and had never been here before. I walked in with my wife and we were instantly treated like family! The food was amazing! The best breakfast I've had in a long time! Brooke took amazing care of us! We will be back!

Janae Thomas

GREAT FOOD!! Server was not all that friendly and did not ask us how our meal was. I am giving the food the 5 stars service was 2 stars.

Lori Robertson

Diamond Shoals has been our family’s favorite stop in Hatteras for YEARS! Weather we stay in Buxton, Avon, or Nags Head, we do NOT leave without having stopped at Diamond Shoals at least once, and we have been known to eat there every day of our trip. The food is ALWAYS delicious, the waitresses are the best around, and I highly recommend eating here any time of day. I’m partial to breakfast, but lunch and dinner are also great.

Father Fort

Wondwrful breakfast! Eggs, toast, hash browns, hot cake, coffee corned beef hash. Great service!

Mark Murphy

We have been going to Buxton for 20 years and always make Diamond Shoals part of the trip. Keith and crew are always spot on. Great breakfasts (Fisherman's favorite) and sushi!

Sarah Kreis

The clam chowder was great! Some of the best crab cakes I’ve ever had. Picky about restaurants but this was really good. Would absolutely return! Highly recommend. Loved the owner.

Ally Licks

Food: AMAZING! Service: AMAZING! First time here and I am so happy! Great food, great service! Fresh sea food and delicious land food as well! Salad bar looks fresh and appetizing. I can’t wait to come back!!

Hedgecock Builders WC

Popcorn shrimp was great. Good service everyone is nice

Sherrie Walker

I actually hate to advertise this quiet treasure too much...but??? We eat here every time we come to the OBX. This wonderful OBX day #5 morning, after shelling, it is just me and my sweet granddaughter! Bring on the pancakes! Service is quick and genuine, and "...would you like to color?" great kid-friendly service. Come in, you wont regret it!

Randy Morrison

Very friendly and attentive staff. Super fresh seafood. We were a group of 10 and were allowed to get separate checks. Place was very busy and we we never left wanting and waiting. Our server Kelly was very friendly, patient and attentive to all our wants.

carie holbrook

I enjoyed this restaurant, we got here as soon as they opened so there was no wait. Staff is friendly and quick to attend to needs. We had the broiled crabcake and shrimp and fried scallop and shrimp and everything came out perfectly, definitely warrants a repeat trip.

Natalia Rivera

Excellent food! The side dishes were especially yumalicious! A little pricy but its quality sea food so you definitely pay for what you get.

Candace Edmonston

Clam chowder is fantastic! The freshest salad bar we've seen in a while. Big selection too. Super friendly folks!

Ola Black

We were here last year and we were back in the area so we decided to get lunch and it was really good. The food is nice. The clam chowder is good.

Kailey McCann

Great place to get lunch! Great Quality food. The service here is great, the waitress was very friendly. Definitely Recommend!

Jim Balog

Excellent food and great service. We had the shrimp and scallops, a burger and sushi and would recommend all.

Debbie McClay

Just had a great experience at Diamond Shoals Restaurant. Katie ,our server was friendly and very attentive. I can definitely recommend the grilled tuna, the sea scallops and the crab legs! Highly recommend stopping when you are driving south on 12!!

nancy mayberry

Best shrimp and flaunder on the Outer Banks. We come back every year to eat here. Service is outstanding.

Darlene Mackey

Great place for breakfast. Food was great as was the service.

Maria Wilson

Family style restaurant. Good and fast service and the food was delicious. Reasonable prices.

Ashley I

The coffee here was amazing!! The service was great, and the workers were always helpful and kind. I would definitely come back again! All the food was very good as well!


The best seafood ever!! The grouper was so tender and the chipotle ranch is the best i wish i had food that good near me

David Scruggs

Great Eye Opener — 2 eggs, home fries, toast and coffee! Simple-sounding but hard to perfect. This was! Prompt service and great coffee, to boot. Definitely will be back!

Jessica Stokely

Food was delicious. Service was awesome. Atmosphere can't be beat. A must visit


Just had another amazing breakfast here. I had the lox and cream cheese omelet, my husband had the seafood omelet. Generous portions, crispy hash browns (we got ours without onions, they were glad to accommodate) and friendly service. We come here every time we vacation in the Outer Banks.

Breanna Starnes

Overall our experience was very good! We had to wait quite a while for our food but it was delicious! Waiter was very attentive.

Linda Brown

Absolutely the best seafood platter my husband and I have ever had! Excellent service! Went here twice and we've only been here three days. Thanks for years of perfecting your restaurant!

Brenda Rushing

We come to OBX every few years, we found the amazing Diamond Shoals the first year we came. With every visit since then we make several trips to the restaurant during the week. The servers are very friendly and the food is beyond delicious. We missed breakfast hours today so we will definitely need to get up earlier so we can make it for breakfast.

Cissy Leming

The service was excellent. Great sushi and salad bar. This is our 4th visit and we have always enjoyed dining here.

James George

High reviews are most certainly due to their offer of a free sand dollar in exchange for a decent review which is a bit shady if you ask me. Food was decent. Crab cakes had no type of accompanying sauce or topping and ended up being dry for that reason. Shrimp linguini came will shell-on shrimp which was an odd choice . Wait times were absolutely outrageous. For similar prices and distances you can definitely find a more authentic and thoughtful experience.


Been coming here for 20+ years. Very family friendly, great food and laid back atmosphere. Staff is great and make you feel welcome.

Colleen Roy Helgen

Never a bad meal here. We’ve come year after year after our Hatteras vacation and always have excellent service and a delicious meal. The seafood omelet is the best!!

Jhinch _04

The diamond shoals has amazing food and great customer service I recommend coming and trying it out.

Wil Sheppard

Great food, decent staff and a nice environment. The souivineer shop here is small, but covers a lot of cool things. The food is a bit pricey, but not abnormally high for the area

Chris Ruggiero

A full parking lot was the first sign that we’d found a good spot for lunch. The staff handing coloring pages and crayons to our two girls before we’d even ordered drinks was the second. A tasty lunch in a casual setting that was humming with conversation followed. Great place for families.


DELICIOUS! Our party had eggs, pancakes, biscuits , bacon, French toast, and hash browns. Everything was great and the service was super friendly. Highly recommend!

Tay C

Came here with friends and it was an amazing experience! The food was great and the service was awesome!! The coffee was tasty as well and the workers were all kind!! The small gift shop at the front was cute and nice and the wait was very short. Overall a very pleasant experience.

charlotte thomas

We absolutely love this restaurant! All the food is wonderful and the employees are super friendly!!

Beth Ozenghar

Great food. The fish bites were awesome. Did not give 5 stars because we had sushi and I was expecting it to be better than it was.

Dana King

Best food and service in obx. Staff always super friendly! Come here every time were in town!

KT Bombardier

Great service. Amazing chowder - my crew says the best they’ve ever had. Highly recommend.

emily sifritt

Great service and delicious food! I ordered the miso soup and Funky Shrimp sushi roll. Delicious flavor and left feeling very satisfied. I loved that this was our last meal while visiting OBX for the first time, I would highly recommend Diamond Shoals!

Terry Downing

Beth are server was very freindly and knowledgable. Food was excellent, love them grits. Biscuit and sausage gravy, blueberry pancakes yummy!!. we will be back next year!!


Thank you for a nice dining experience. The atmosphere was very family friendly and the service was fantastic. Great food and a great time!!


Great fresh sea food. We bought this morning some fresh scallops and cooked them at home. The best scallops we ever had! Can hardly wait to go again tomorrow and buy some more scallops and some of those fresh tuna steaks and fire up the grill! Our own Mediterranean salad and the wonderful scallops fried in a little olive oil and spices.

Michelle Ross

We always try to find places where we think we'd get good food, and we weren't disappointed! The food was amazing! Too bad we're not staying long otherwise we'd come back already.

Stef Pera

Vast sushi selection but lacks on the seafood. Excellent Clam chowder. The Surfer Girl sushi rolls were extremely satisfying. The Grouper, however good, had one flaw, cheese on fish: Big NO no. The French fries were soggy due to them being placed on the sauce.

Catherine Pryor

Always a wonderful experience! We love the fish wrap

Vinny Edwards

I eat here every time I'm in obx. Good food. Good pricing and doesn't take long

Abigail Hiers

The food was amazing and the coffee was so good! The waiters were very kind and we got our food pretty quickly! The air was the perfect temperature so I didn’t feel like I had to bring a jacket to eat! The decor is super cool to look at and makes the mood of the place feel so welcoming. Overall, the experience was really nice and I enjoyed it very much!

Matthew Prosceno

Decided to give this place a chance on our way up. It was a fantastic visit. The coffee was hot, food was amazing, and the service was polite and kind. If we find ourselves in the area again we will totally stop by for breakfast again. The fisherman's breakfast and giant hotcakes was the best way to start the day. Thanks so much for the fantastic visit.

gopi krishna vellore govind

One of the best places to dine in. They took very good care of us.

Maite Photography

We stopped by while visiting and their food is delicious! Brandi our server helped us make a selection on our menu, went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed and was very attentive! Staff was friendly and service was prompt♡ Highly recommend!

Kathy Pittser

Delicious as always! Love stopping here while on vacation.

Kristin Holmes

Great restaurant for fresh fish! Menus for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Sushi made fresh every night was delicious.

Charlie Gleason

We came here for our parents anniversary and boy was it a blast I would definitely recommend coming and getting the hush puppies they are pretty good. The service was very good and my parents were both very satisfied with their food. I recommend the delicious key lime cheesecake it was to die for and great but make sure you have a guest with you it is really filling.

Margaret Kozminsky

Ate several breakfasts and dinners here. The staff are wonderful especially Kelly, who works at dinnertime. The food is outstanding. Loved the salad bar with a fresh catch of the day. Everything is fresh and delicious. If you love good food, you won't go wrong eating here.

Scott H

Stopped here for lunch with a party of 12. Food was excellent and the service was great, very friendly staff. We would definitely come again. Family friendly with families that have young kids.

cheryl connor

A wonderful place to eat and relax. Great food, friendly service. The staff makes you feel like they are glad you are there. Hushpuppies are so good. Grouper excellent, and desert the best. Would come a lot more if I did not live in VA

Gwen Goedeke

Great food. We had the popcorn shrimp and chicken tenders. Fast service for a Friday night. Off season and the place was full of locals. Must be a good place if the local police was at dinner. Cute little gift shop area at the front as well. Would definitely come back, but can see it would be busy during peak season.

Anya Johnson

The staff was SO nice , out waitress Brooke checked in to make sure everything was good! Overall, service was 10/10! Oh! And, the popcorn shrimp was top of the line! Love it and will come back again!

Reaper Vibes

This place is fantastic i really recommend it. First off the food is delicious the fish here is very fresh and fries taste good. Second the employees are kind and respectful, Over all it is just a great restaurant for all ages.

Peggy Wesp

Excellent. Made a second visit because this place is amazing. Local color, excellent seafood, nothing fancy just friendly quality food and service.

Bob Hebbard

Food was excellent. Had the seafood platter and blackened Wahoo. Vinnie, our server was great also. Will be back next year

Kristy O'Sako

Great, fresh seafood excellently prepared. The homemade mashed potatoes are delicious. You should get at least one cup of the clam chowder.

Matthew Long Ed.D

Great food, fast service. We had a big group and they got us all right in! A great experience.

Robert Scroggie

Awesome place, great service, great people, great food. Definitely will revisit when we come back!!

William M

Seafood market and the restaurant are both great! Amazing food! We've been going to buxton for years and eat there the majority of the time.

Kristina Daugherty

Diamond Shoals has been a favorite of our family for a long time. We can always rely on them for the freshest catches and generous portions. I highly recommend a visit to this restaurant; it wont disappoint as there is something for the entire family.

Jarrod Just

Very good breakfast, but service wasn't the greatest. Tried many times to get the waitresses attn for more coffee fill ups. Finally got another waitress to fill. Will come back and try again

Came for dinner and it was packed. The staff was moving and cleaning as quickly as they could. Definitely worth the wait. Delicious shrimp and scallops.
