“We ate lunch here today and loved it!! The food and service were awesome!!!! We sat outside on the deck & the view is amazing!!!! We are frequently in the outer banks but have never tried this spot!!!!! So glad we did!!!! We’ll definitely be back soon


“Best place on the Beach to eat!! We have going to Run Down Cafe for over 10 years. The food is always delicious, the wait staff is really attentive, fun decor with a Caribbean vibe. The owner Michael puts his heart and soul into making it a place you want to return to often. Try the fish burritos or my favorite the huge salad with grilled tuna and Journey's End House Dressing. Yummy!”


“The food at Rundown Cafe is incredibly delicious. They offer a unique blend of dishes with bright decor and a beautiful ocean view. The staff is friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend anyone in the Outer Banks try it out!”


“We first ate here 3 years ago... it was what dreams were made of... We visited again today and AGAIN my food dream was fulfilled. There was ZERO disappointment. Unique, flavor-rich cuisine, you will not find this menu repeated anywhere!! Love... Love... Love...”
