Always a good dinner. Love the jazzy chicken and the curry dishes. Maria is a really good waitress and always makes us feel welcome!

Stopped here on a Saturday mid-afternoon to chill with a beer before checking in to a condo for the week. We bellied up to the bar with the encouragement of the welcoming fellow patrons. Bartender was friendly and quick. Had some nice happy hour deals....More

Not being able to eat shellfish it makes eating in a coastal town tricky. Goombays did not disappoint. Went for lunch and had the Jamaican Jerk burger. Great spices and huge! And the drinks were good too! I will definitely revisit on a future trip.

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.

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! :)
