"Love the Food, Value and Atmosphere"

September 2018

Love the food, value and atmosphere at this place. Shrimp and hush puppies are awesome.


July 2018 - Marianne from Baltimore, MD

FANTASTIC! Doesn't look like much when you pass by, but the service was great, food was so so good, and it was very inexpensive! The patio is pet friendly. Definitely would go back on the way to/from OBX.

Simply Southern is full of yummy surprises for every palate and preference.  Great homestyle cuisine with the southern charm staff to match. Quaint and quiet and a must to dine with on any day of the week.

"Great Food"

June 2018 - Robert H

Stopped here on our way home from Nags Head. Definitely one of the best meals we had during our entire week vacation. Everything we ordered tasted great. Hush puppies and shrimp were some of the best I've ever eaten. All 6 of us agreed that this will be a" must stop" on our next trip to the beach. Waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. They even threw in a free banana pudding for Father's Day.

Authentic southern cooking, fantastic fried chicken sandwich! Warm friendly service from beginning to end!

"Perfect...on your way to or from..the Outer Banks!" 

March 2018 - MBear from Norfolk, VA

Anytime is a good time to stop @ Simply Southern Kitchen!! The food is home cooking..the staff could not be more helpful. Brandi will seat you and Mike will cook for you. The price is right and the food is fresh. My favorite is flounder...always available fresh/fried, grilled, pan seared..breaded or not. The hubs likes fried chicken. The decor is bright/clean/just right for a stop and graze. You can be in and out in a heart beat and not break the bank.. Two of us for $28 including Miller Light. In all, a hard working country style dining experience that we thoroughly enjoyed! See you there!! PS..Easy to miss on 158/the road to OBX..just west from the Big Water Park or going from OBX east past the Honda place. Look for flags flying.
