Really great food not far from Sea Sound. Nicely decorated interior with a great selection of Asian food with seafood added.

We ordered takeout for an easy beach night. Shrimp and broccoli was as one would expect...same as any Chinese restaurant. Panko shrimp was fried perfectly but under-seasoned and there's no sauce (I just didn't notice that in menu description); broccoli was very good.

Very small menu for food and limited beverages. Had Generals Chicken, not spicy at at all and chicken very chewy. Wife said her vegetable lo mein was good. Staff was pleasant.

Very respectable Chinese food at a reasonable price. Somewhat limited menu, but everything we got (shrimp, sesame chicken, lo mein, and egg rolls) was good. Would definitely go back.

First, the service is excellent, very friendly and extremely helpful in explaining the menu. I live here and eat there a lot. The steaks are delicious. I have had some of the best dinners there than anywhere on the island..

We ate at BoardWok on our previous visit and eagerly return tonight. I ordered the crab cake as I did before. When it arrived it was TERRIBLE! Tasted old and my husband agreed had a metal taste . The waiter took it back and I...ordered the tuna (just like my husband had) cooked medium rare. When mine arrived, it was barely seared and ice cold in the middle, the waiter took it back apologizing. I reassured him it was not his fault! He returned the recooked tuna and said he hoped it was ok “I tasted the crab and thought it was fine but I am the customer” He totally de validated my opinion as well as my husband!! UNACCEPTABLE ! What a terrible night! I certainly will not go back! THEY CHARGED US 70$ for a terrible meal I loved it the first time.More

6 of us stopped in for dinner. Very sweet staff. Nice atmosphere. I had fish tacos with tuna. Very good. Rest of our crew had sesame chicken, general Tso, Panko Shrimp, and Salmon. Everyone's meal was good, no complaints. Decent selection of beer and wine....Prices are reasonable. Would definitely go again.More

My wife and I broke away and left the kids with the rest of our family so we could have some much needed alone time. I looked around at the options close by to where we are staying. This seemed to be the place for...us. My wife is a vegetarian, so we can't just go anywhere. The place was empty when we arrived. My wife had some vegetable something, and I had General Tso's chicken. The food came out pretty quickly. The waitress was very nice and attentive. I would definitely return.More

This place was highly recommended by locals so we gave it a try. My husband and I got the steak and we're not impressed. My steak was hard to cut and very chewy, definitely not a good cut. My husband's steak was fine, it just...didn't have a lot of flavor. We got a scoop of white rice and slaw on the side which I found to be a very strange combination. If we go back, I'll definitely order something different. The service was great and the tiki bar is cute. We'll give it one more try.More

As locals, we eat there often. Everything on the menu is great and very fresh. I have a difficult time deciding between the rib-eye, the Scottish salmon, and the rockfish. They all melt on your mouth. I haven't found anything on the menu that is...not really good - I've never been disappointed. I always recommend the Boardwok to visitors.More

Make sure you try the cream of crab soup, it's outstanding! Great oriental food too. It's a small place but everyone is friendly and there is a bar too.

We arrived on the OBX the 1st day visitors were allowed in after Hurricane Florence passed thru. There were no restaurants open & we were thrilled to see the deli open. They were out of a lot of the options but still had deli meat...& a few bread options. There were 2 guys there trying to do everything & they were so busy I felt sorry for them. Turned out their sandwiches were great & the fries & onion rings with their special white sauce were excellent. Kudos to the guys weathering the aftereffects of the storm!More

It is a small place that went over and beyond to accommodate our large group of 15 that walked in. The food was amazing, prices were good and the service was excellent. If you're in the area, I highly recommend it

Lovely little restaurant with excellent food. They do not take reservations and there’s only 8 or 9 tables so we went a little later and had no problem getting a table for 12. Panko scallops were out of this world!

We discovered the Boardwok South at the end of a little shopping center on our recent visit to the Outer Banks.The atmosphere was very pleasant, the hostess/server was excellent and the food was very good as well. We shared vegetable spring rolls (excellent) and I...had the Mahi and my husband had the chicken with vegetables - both were very good meals and there was plenty of food. My fish was a bit overcooked, but still tasty and my husband was very happy with his selection. We will definitely stop here again on our next visit.More
