Never leave hungry.
Memorable moments take place while sharing food and drink with friends and family. Fortunately, the Outer Banks has over 170 independent local restaurants of culinary delights in unique settings, with menus created by the most passionate chefs along the Atlantic Coast. For discriminating palettes and pocketbooks, Outer Banks restaurants serve a variety of fare; Southwestern, Steakhouses, Buffets, Grills & Pubs, and Cross-Cultural cuisine. And yes, you'll find NC Southern-style BBQ and fresh seafood harvested earlier that morning by an Outer Banks fisherman, working the waters as his or her grandfather and father did generations before. To protect this deeply rooted heritage, our local commercial fishing industry has formed a partnership called Outer Banks Catch. Ask for it by name. It’s the only way to be sure your seafood is local.
