This is our 4th visit to Paper Canoe on our annual vacation trip to OBX. This was our third year of having Brad as our server. He was terrific, very informative about meal options, and wonderfully responsive throughout our meal. Since we plan to annually return to this outstanding restaurant, I am hopeful that Brad will continue to be a fixture. Our group selected various appetizers and four different entrees ( scallops, shrimp & grits, special fish catch of day and steak). Each was superbly prepared and lent to a very enjoyable evening at this five star restaurant. I loved my scallop dish and our group raved about their selections We all enjoyed the crab dip and our other appetizers ( special salad and spring rolls). We topped our evening with desserts ( creme brûlée and a 4 berry custard dish) that were scrumptious! I highly recommend this restaurant and we plan to make it an annual stop when we vacation at OBX.

Paper Canoe was our only opportunity to enjoy great dining in OBX . We showed up early with our two kids (5years) about 5:30 and they were able to seat us before the big reservation rush at 630--and with kids our ages we don't get more than an hour in a restaurant. There menu was curated with something really great in poultry/seafood/steak and not really huge and a great high-end pizza our kids enjoyed. Craft cocktails and great wine list with efficient informed staff! Their website can show you the prices, you decide if you think it's expensive--it had the most relaxed meal with the best service of anywhere on our trip so price is subjective. A couple of cocktails and three main courses, a salad split and a pizza with some vegetables came to about $150 which is what I expected---and fast service outstanding food

On our last night of vacation at the Outer Banks, NC we wanted to go our for a nice dinner. We found the Paper Canoe. It was an excellent choice!! Local place located on the Sound side of the island. Chalk board menu, which we love and nice view of the Sound. The service was very good and the food was outstanding. The presentation was beautiful and everything was fresh. We will definitely go back when we do a return trip.
