Great food... well worth a visit
Excellent food. An oasis in a desert of over-priced tourist traps. The specials were well presented and the desserts were awesome. Excellent wait staff.

Fresh, Delicious, and one of a kind food with a great enviroment
I read reviews and all I heard was good things and the reviews were right! I had a fried flounder sandwich and their "soon to be famous" wings and all if it was so good. It was very busy so service was probably a little off of its normal game, but non the less the food was prompt getting to our table and it made my beach trip much more enjoyable.

I See Why It's Rated #1
My wife and I recently spent 4 days in Kill Devil Hills and as usual I previewed the top rated restaurants there via TripAdvisor before going. When you first pull into the Kill Devil Grill it looks like a quaint old diner with a room attached to the back ... in fact, that's all it is. But OMG is the food great !!! We ended up eating there 3 times dutring our stay. The only thing that might make the place even better than it already is if the jukeboxes really worked and if they didn't run out of stuff. If you like crabcakes you HAVE to go here, they are the best. If you like key lime pie you HAVE to go here, it is the best also. The grilled ribeye is exceptional too. The place is small enough and the food sooooooo good you'll probably have to wait for a seat. You may shorten your wait if you can get a seat at the front counter and don't mind eating there. (Doug may be very busy but he'll take good care of you.) When we were in the backroom our waitress Shayna was excellent; very friendly, helpful and a local. My only regret is that they don't have a place near where I live in Pennsylvania ... I'd be there at least once a week. I miss those crabcakes and key lime pie already.

100% Satisfied
While visiting the OBX, my wife and I ventured to this vintage diner on the recommendation of the hotel staff. First, we went there for dinner and we had a great all around experience. We started with the steak and chesse eggrolls. Yes, it sounded unusual but they were great. Next, we both decided to try somethong from the specials board. I had the grilled veal chop and my wife the jumbo lump crab cakes. We shared each other's meals because both were so delicious. To complete a perfect meal we opted for the key lime pie (and yes) that was delicious as well.

We enjoyed our dinner so much that we went back for lunch and dinner day or so later. I'm sure if they served breakfast we would have gone for that as well.

The only thing I would recommend is that you order from the specials board. Be quick though since they sell out fast. It was a real shame when we returned for lunch and I tried to order the souhtern fried chicken only to see a catchy lable "No Mas" placed over that particular special indicating that it was sold out.

Great atmosphere, service and food. You can't go wrong with this establishment.

Dont judge a book by its cover, this Kill Devil Grill is awesome!
After reading all the reviews here I knew we had to check out this restaurant. Driving up to it I thought it had to be a mistake, it looked like a little diner I'd see in New Jersey but we decided to try it out anyway. It was amazing. The food is top of the line and the atmosphere is a mix between locals and tourists. This is just a great restaurant for anyone since it has something for everyone.

Yummy, Fun, Kid Friendly - BEST MEAL ON OUTER BANKS
You will LOVE this place. Casual (as all places in Outer Banks seem to be) but the food was top notch!

Best Fried Chicken Salad ever, wonderful 'real' crabcakes - kids menu had best chicken my kids have ever tasted! Seafood chowder was great too. Desserts were awesome - service nice and very enjoyable.

Try this place for the best meal you will have while visiting the Outer Banks.

We could eat here everyday.
The next time we come to the Outer Banks, we will stay close to Kill Devil Grill so we can eat here everyday. The specials board changes everyday and everything is excellent. You can tell someone cares about preparing good food.

Fantastic food!
We ate lunch here in May 2009, and it was so good we can't wait to visit again in June. Had grilled chicken sandwich, fresh fish sandwich, fries and KEY LIME PIE! Great service too.

Top Notch!
KDG has been our favorite for several years and this year they remain number one with our family which is a group of 20. Its not easy to get 20 people to agree on anything except KDG. The prices are great, service is wonderful and the food is outstanding.

Don't Miss this One
Food was excellent and the prices are good. Had Sunday brunch and ordered crab cakes with poached egg and hollandiase sauce. It was delicious. The crab cakes wre the best I have had. Also, the cheese/steak eggrolls are a must. Service was great too.

Don't Be Fooled By the Outside!
My family and I ate at the Kill Devil Grill for the first time and was amazed! At first glance, the outside does not appear to be much but what you get inside is beyond compare. The menu is small but the food they do...they do well. The blackened Mahi is the best I have ever tasted. The spinach dip is fantastic. The waitresses are top notch. Will definitely visit again next summer with my vacation. This is the best food on the outer banks!

Unbelievable!
If your goal is to experiment with several restaurants around Kitty Hawk, do yourself a favor and don't bother. Once you've eaten here, it will be impossible to try another restaurant in the area! These guys have perfected what they serve, and deliver it with exceptional servers! The have the best crab cakes, wings, and fried shimp you are going to find anywhere. And if you are lucky enough to go there on a day with the Fried Chicken Special for lunch, don't even think about trying anything else. Although I'm not much of a dessert eater, their Key Lime Pie and Apple Crisp will have you lusting over them for weeks after you leave. I'm drooling just writing this review!

Great Food!
I have eaten at Kill Devil Grill many times and the food is fabulous. The steak and cheese egg rolls must be tried because they are better than any words used to describe them! They also do brunch on Sundays and had some egg dish that was quite good... the devils mess?? Anyway, I enjoyed all meals I have tried here and will keep going back.

What a great surprise!
So lucky we stumbled upon this place without reading the reviews. I NEVER eat fries so asked for the cheese grits to go with my perfectly fried shrimp. After a taste of my granddaughter's fries, I wished I'd gotten the fries -- they are what fries are meant to be. I didn't order the key lime pie because at most restaurants it's about as good as what you can buy in the frozen food section of your grocery. Not here -- it was the best key lime pie ever! A huge, tall slice with the tartness of real key limes -- whether they were real or not, I don't know, but they tasted like it. Everyone was wowed by the food and just sorry we hadn't found it earlier but happy that we did.
