Three of us enjoyed a fabulous meal at Hatteras Sol. We all shared apps of blue cab dip and fried pickled okra. Both were very good. The ladies each had an order of shrimp, scallop fettuccine. It had artichoke hearts, red peppers, kalamata olives, and...capers. The dinner looked and tasted wonderful. I had the shrimp and grits. The grits were presented as grit cakes. Great presentation and a terrific dinner. The service was great as always. I love a good traditional martini. Unfortunately they didn't have onions for a Gibson and had olives. I suggested that if someone wanted a Gibson, substitute the cocktail onion with a picked okra. A very enjoyable dinner. Hatteras Sol is always my favorite finer dining restaurant on Hatteras Island.More

We finally got to have dinner at Hatteras Sol. It did not disappoint. Southern rockafella is a must!! We also had a tuna poke bowl, corn and seafood chowder as well as the Parmesan clams. All was very good and so was the service! We...will be back!More

Hatteras Sol WG is located in a scenic spot by the dock of the ferry to and from Ocracoke. Despite its big dining room, the wait is from 30-90 minutes to be seated. Their outdoor waiting area is relaxing with a fabulous view of the...sun setting above Pamlico Sound. My crab cake is superbly toothsome with lump meat! My Mango A go go cocktail was delicious and reasonably priced. My husband’s chicken marsala with mashed potato, mixed veggies, mushrooms and pieces of ham was quite good. He normally does not favor saucy dishes and yet he was quite satisfied with his meal. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. Food did not take ling to be served.More

Restaurant might have decent food but on several occasions they weren’t able to service people. Open at five stop serving at 6. Open at 5 stop taking orders at 505. Not a good way to operate a business. Or have people wait 3 hours to...get served.More

Frequent visitors to Hatteras area and had always intended to give Hatteras Sol a try. Finally did this year and wish we hadn't waited so long! Sat at the bar and had crab dip (fabulous!!) and the tuna special with crabmeat on top with some...sort of sauce (Just WOW!). I'm not even usually a fan of tuna, and this blew my socks off. Between bites, Hubby said absolutely coming back! Don't know if they take reservations, and there was a long wait at arrival, so the bar was a score. Wish I remembered the waitress at the bar's name, because she was excellent as well. Friendly and very efficient. If you have to wait for a table, you can get drinks at the bar and take them to a deck out back with a lovely view.More

Went to the Hatteras Sol on May 24, 2022. I was expecting a good meal but what I got was a great meal. Our server Julia was awesome. She went out of her way to make our meal delightful. The she-crab soup was awesome. The...fried shrimp and scallops were the best! Would highly recommend taking in a meal at the Hatteras Sol.More

I wish I could give a better rating, but I was not impressed with the food. We went with high expectations based on location and reviews. First off, appetizers, calamari rings were small and no flavor, maybe even overcooked, Crab dip was good. Fried okra,...very salty. The soups, seafood corn chowder was excellent. Clam chowder, not so much, salty, lots of bacon flavor, not much on the clams. She crab soup, the worst of the three soups. Dinners, I had the shrimp and grits, not impressed. The tomato cream sauce was good, the grit cakes, I didn’t enjoy, and lastly the shrimp, no flavor whatsoever. It was almost as if shrimp were pre steamed, thrown in a fridge and then quickly warmed to put on the meal. Two others had caesar salad with shrimp, Again, shrimp no flavor. The Cajun rub appears to be added after shrimp were cooked, almost liked spooned onto the shrimp. The other asked for the shrimp no Cajun, they added no flavor and were not tender. Then pasta dishes were large. The special of fried sheepshead, probably best meal at the table. Our server was very good, staff friendly, but food, over priced for the quality. Sorry to say we will keep looking for another seafood restaurant. We are in Rodanthe about 6 times a year and are on the lookout for a good seafood restaurant.More

My wife and I are not seafood lovers, so were hesitant to try this "seafood" restaurant until the owners of the inn where we were staying recommended it. First off, the location is amazing. The restaurant overlooks the harbor so you have a view of...the water from every table. The dinner salads were large enough that they could have been a meal in themselves. We shared the Chicken Marsala - 2 large chicken breasts, mashed potatoes, and fresh vegetables, in a delicious creamy sauce with country ham pieces. Topped it off with dessert - carrot cake and Key Lime pie. Amazing!!! And the service was outstanding as well. Would definitely go back next time we're in Hatteras.More

Great view while dining or waiting for a table. Almost didn’t come because was a bit high priced for my budget but so glad we did. Quality was very high and ingredients fresh above standard. Size of portion was large and you could tell chef...was highly trained. Only con was that dining room was very loud. Had trouble hearing others at my table. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves though!More

While a little on the pricey side, Hatteras Sol is most definitely worth it. My daughter got the seafood in alfredo and linguini and I could tell by the way her eyes lit up when she dug into it, it was heaven on a fork!

Hatteras Sol just consistently impresses. They have the most creative cocktails and delicious dinner specials. We had the seafood corn chowder - amazing with big chunks of tuna and other seafood, andouille sausage. So tasty. My husband got the Tuna Oscar special and I got...the Parmesan crusted Red Drum special served with shrimp risotto. Everything was perfect and delicious. Waiter was outstanding. We finished with a slice of cheesecake that they get from the local bakery. We weren’t even hungry but nevertheless managed to nearly finish the massive slice off. I really recommend ordering off the specials menu at this restaurant. Everything is fresh and delicious and the quality of the local seafood is outstanding.More

Amazing food and awesome service! A friend recommended Hatteras Sol to us and we were not disappointed! You know it’s a great restaurant when people are lining up at the door 30 minutes prior to opening. We didn’t know to do this our first night...there, and had to wait an hour in the outside bar u til a table became available-so be forewarned and go early! We were there 3 x in 10 days. The blue crab dip appetizer is fantastic. I ordered the swordfish special, and am not a big seafood lover, but was blown away by this dish. Came back a few nights later and had it again. Even my husband ordered it the second time because I couldn’t stop raving about it-and he detests eating large gamefish. We brought his parents in the 3rd time, who were down visiting for a week, and they loved the tuna steak special. All of the waitstaff was wonderful, I’m horrible at remembering names, but I do remember Gabe-thank you for your service!More

As expected, the main offering is seafood. On our visit, they offered several excellent choices. The food was cooked and seasoned correctly. The wait staff was very attentive and considerate. The atmosphere was very casual. The restaurant is very popular with the locals. There is...no need to dress up to go. If you have one place to visit, this is it. If you have more, make this one of your visits.More

You’re going to wait to be seated here because it’s the best restaurant in the Hatteras Village area. And it’s worth the wait. Situated on the water, the place is operated very smoothly. Staff was great and constantly moving. Wife loved the crab cakes and...the shrimp carbonara had at least a dozen very large and obviously very fresh shrimp. Highly recommend and if you get lucky enough to have Shannon as your server you are in for a treat from a great personality who doesn’t forget anything you ask for.More
