My wife and I ate here based on a review from a local. The steaks were particularly recommended. I had the seafood chowder and thought it was okay. It is cream based but seemed greasy to me. My wife had prime rib, and I had a filet with bleu cheese butter. Her prime rib was 22 oz (the "double deuce"),... More

The restaurant was only open for 3 days and I ordered a lot going Island ice tea and it was not made right...the excuse was "we just opened, they are making do with what they have." Three of us ordered surf and turf and we're not satisfied, for one the filet mignon our son ordered was bigger than the adult... More

We are repeat vacationers to the Outer Banks but had never been here before. We stumbled across this restaurant the first evening and glad we did. I enjoyed the Double CrabCakes, my wife loved the Salmon and our daughter enjoyed the Lobster Tails. The restaurant sets back off the road and wasn't overly crowded and you could actually talk to...

Excellent menu, great wine list selection, friendly staff. Stopped in for dinner post season in mid October, pretty much had the place to ourselves. When they say their sea food chowder is award winning, they weren't kidding. Some of the best I've had anywhere. A bit pricey, but worth it for great service and a higher end dining experience

I am writing this review just based on the service we did not stay long enough for a taste of food the hostess was so rude and wanted to do with us. We are seated and the waitress comes to take drink orders and the rudeness and unwillingness to want to work was enough for us to say we will... More

We were there while on family vacation. Quite pricey and everything is a la carte. Least expensive steak was a 6 oz. filet mignon for $29; next was $41. Food was good, but not amazing. Waiter was friendly but not super attentive. It was extremely loud in there even though they did have the squares on the ceiling to buffer... More

On vacation in Carolla (Outer Banks) we went to the Tim Buck II shopping center planning to go to North Banks which was recommended to us. We found that was a small restaurant and had a 45 minute wait, so we decided to try Mike Dianna's which was located in the back of the property. There was no wait and... More

Most importantly, if you're there in season, arrive early. They do an excellent job of seating as promptly as possible but parking can be at a premium. That havng been said we were a party of 4 adults and 2 kids aged 4 and 6. They are prepared. The kids were perfect gentlemen because they were never bored. Our wait... More

Wife and I rolled in on a whim. No reservation, but the place was very full. Sat at the bar and ordered dinner. Food was great and the atmosphere was good. The bar tender was great and very attentive!

Dinner last week at Mike Dianna's was a pleasant surprise. This place has a nice atmosphere with low lighting, a lot of tables to accommodate couples or groups (in booths or at tables). Tables were nicely set with white table linens. The restaurant was crowded (6pm) but we did not have to wait for our table (suggest reservations). Our waiter... More
