We enjoyed dinner here our first night on the OBX. The crab cakes were great, generous sides and delicious key lime pie. A bit noisy and warm inside, but the servers were friendly and there wasn't a long wait for our food.

Came here for dinner on the recommendation of friends. Had good food and I enjoyed the specialty drinks. We liked it so much that we had dinner again a few days later. Interesting little place.

This winter, Goombays In Kill Devil Hills will be open almost all year. They are closing from roughly mid-January to mid-February only! Not many restaurants here take that short a winter break! :)
