What a fantastic place it a great part of the world. First time to the Outer Banks for me and it won't be my last. If you are looking for a less commercial, beautiful location this is it.

Chip's is not hard to find as everything is laid out by Mile marker (or half mile marker) on Croatan Hwy. Chips is right around mile marker 6 in the Mile 6 Plaza on the West side of the road.

Quality is great. They have all of the quality product that are available to them. If they can get it, they have it.

Service was fantastic. They had no less than two people walking (not a huge, warehouse store) the floor asking people if they needed help. Additionally, they all wore matching black bowling shirts with red stripes, so it is very easy to find them when you need help. I didn't have to find anybody. I was asked if I needed help as soon as I walked in and had all of my questions answered. Including what distributor handled what beer and even if the last bottle of sparkling sake I picked up in addition to the Starr Hill was the only bottle/kind they had.

Selection was great. Their shelves are stocked to the brim with a great selection. They could carry more, but I don't know where they would put it or if it would turn as quickly. Everything looked fresh and recently stocked. Nothing jumped out at me as being old.

Prices were great, but I didn't focus to much on the price. Just on what I could or couldn't get at home.

Fantastic place that I will visit again.

I was looking forward to stopping here, but I must of just hit it at an off time as I found very little to purchase. Nice people and I'll definitely try again someday.

Good variety and looks to be better than most in the area.
They have a singles and mixed 6 pack area with a good mix of beers. The prices on singles look to be just slightly more than the full 6's and very fair.
Would be nice to see more locals as an out of state guy, but otherwise a nice place in the OBX area.

Super helpful staff that made great recommendations. Great selection that was very well organized. Love the pick a six option. How can you not love a place that will sell you a pint and let you shop?

Will certainly become a staple during our OBX trips.

Reviewed from notes taken a year or so back.

The most diverse offering of beers I've found on the Outer Banks. Fresheness dates were mostly withing code and prices seemed reasonable for a touristy area.

Good place to go shopping for the stuff you won't fined in smaller or less specialized shops.

Service was helpful. Even though the particular beers I wanted to find were not available the young woman running the register was able to tell me that nobody in the area would have the beers from the particular NC brewery I wanted to try since they don't distribute as far east as the Outer Banks.

Good place to check out. Easy to get to and find.

Chip's in KDH is a must for any BA's in the OBX. The staff is friendly, engaging, and knowledgable. The selection is as good as any you will find in the area. Plus, they have a good selection of cold beer in the cooler to your right as you're walking into the store. Since they added the bar area, I have enjoyed sipping on a beer (or two) as I shop. Chip's also has a decent selection of glassware.
