Recently visited this restaurant during a quick getaway. Our server was excellent! The food was tasty and fresh. The oysters were delicious. They were a decent size and opened with expertise. No grit! Fresh fresh fresh! The drinks were good and reasonably priced. We will...be back!More

I'm not an expert on hush puppies, but Dirty Dick's has some of the best I've ever tasted. Now onto the rest of the food. I ordered a 1/2 dozen steamed crabs. The server was pretty ambiguous about the size of the crabs, but I...went for it anyway. They were small, but I was given 8 instead of 6. For the rest of my party, food was solid all around. I did order the the she-crab soup, which apparently very popular in this area. I don't have a basis for comparison, but it was very creamy and flavorful. My younger son isn't into crab, but enjoyed it as well. Large spacious dining area, but it does get busy; so be prepared to wait during peak meal times.More

When we vacation at the Outer Banks, NC, there are a lot of restaurants we have tried. But the one we go to a couple of times during our visit is Dirty Dicks. We know we will always get great food, good service and friendly...people. My favorite, the shrimp & grits, Creole style, is the best I've ever had. Do yourself a favor and enjoy an evening at Dirty Dicks!More

We have it on our menu as an add-on to any entree, but if you ask for it as an entree, they will oblige at market price.
