Rundown is a great local spot for lunch and dinner. The appetizers are awesome there (coconut shrimp, chips and queso etc.) and the food is great too. We always sit at the upstairs bar because you get a great ocean view!

The Rundown Cafe is a nice, little restaurant. Whatever you do, make sure you come here and get their Rundown soup. It is delicious. It's fishy, and sweet and all around excellent.

Awesome coconut shrimp! It's a smaller place, and nicely decorated (not rundown) and priced reasonably. They offer unique soup selections that are worth trying

We have vacationed in the Outer Banks for since i was 6 years old (21 years now), and of all the restaurants and all the places that I have gone to eat--The Rundown is my absolute favorite!! The atmosphere is so chill, and the food is amazing. I have never had anything that I didnt LOVE...however, my all time favorite is the rundown, its probably the best soup/bisque I have ever had. Nothing compares. I love going to the Tsunami Bar and just relaxing with my husband or eating down stairs with our children. It's a great place, and it puts a smile on my face. (wow, that rhymes). It's just rad.

Pros: Excellent food for a really good price, healthy cuisine, not greasy

For 3 years in a row we have eaten at Rundown. We love the casual atmosphere, and love eating upstairs to view the ocean and feel the breeze! The salads with grilled tuna or chicken on skewers are wonderful, and the Journey's End dressing and homemade Ginger Vinagrette are soooooo good. A great value, 5 of us eat for under $60, the service is terrific as well as the food. Our favorite place to eat every year !

The Rundown Cafe has been a local's favorite for many years. It has a pacific rim/caribbean/seafood based menu, but there are plenty of meals for "American" tastes as well. Prices are excellent (entrees top out at about $16, and the tuna burrito is a serious bargain at about $7), the ambience is friendly and the beers are cold. Make sure to meet Mike, the hard working owner. The specials of the day always feature the best of local seafood. You will find the Rundown near the Kitty Hawk pier. I have been to this place more than 50 times over the years, and it is by far and away my favorite OBX restaurant. If you are just visiting, or an Outer Banks regular, do yourself a favor and try the Rundown Cafe!
