Had not been to Goombays for many years, so decided to go for dinner. Probably should have looked up the menu before we went. It was pretty expensive for what you get. 2 appetizers and 2 iced teas were 33.00. Food was okay, not bad...More

Very nice little beach restaurant! My swordfish Kingston (jerked with coconut cream sauce & bananas) was very good, Wife's shrimp salad was nice, too, Very fresh oysters on the half shall, though not the most flavorful we had on OBX. Regrettably, their draft beer system...More

My wife and I ate lunch here with our church friends and it didn't disappoint. I tried the blueberry French Toast and it was delicious. All the other food being served looked so yummy. I would highly recommend this place.

My husband and I enjoyed our first lunch in the outer banks here. I had the mahi mahi sandwich and my husband had the fried crab. Super fresh food and a nice laid back atmosphere!

Was looking forward to blackened swordfish tacos.....but the flies landed in the cheese, tacos and just didn’t relent while trying to eat. This cuts one’s appetite. The swordfish cut up in chunks wasn’t very interesting and just wonder how fresh fish was.

Our food was good. The only bad thing was the chairs. Wooden chairs were very uncomfortable, ok for kids. Crab cakes are worth going back for.

Not many choices for brunch, but the lunch menu was also available. The brunch offerings were awesome that we got. I had eggs Benedict and Hubby had Ms Birdies blueberry French toast. We got evacuated for Hurricane Florence so we didn't get dinner at Goombays...More

We walked in and sat down quickly. A waitress was with a grin and the right attitude. I ordered a Wedge Salad and a Potabella Sandwich. Started with a dozen oysters fantastic. My Bride had the Grouper basket all well. Maria was the chipper gal...More

We’ve been here many times over the years and this time it just seemed OK. Fish was over cooked a bit and other food items were good, not great. Great service and atmosphere. Will try again next week.

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! :)
