Hungry? Finding a place to eat has never been easier. The best OBX moments can happen over the course of a meal. That's why when it comes to places to eat, the Outer Banks offers the best variety of dining in North Carolina and beyond. We're known for our independent and locally-owned restaurants, so be prepared to try something new and delicious. From seafood specialties to steak, pizza to beach barbeque, every tasty meal has its place here. For discriminating palettes and pocketbooks, Outer Banks restaurants serve a variety of fare; Southwestern, Steakhouses, Buffets, Grills & Pubs, and Cross-Cultural cuisine to name a few more. And yes, you'll find fresh NC seafood harvested earlier that morning by an Outer Banks fisherman, working the waters as his or her grandfather and father did generations before. Consider this your official OBX dining guide. If you want to truly immerse yourself in the culture, try local ingredients including farm-raised oysters in Hatteras, unrefined honey from Wanchese bees, or even a sprinkling of sea salt straight from the Atlantic Ocean. Do as the locals do and check out the first windmill powered brewery in the US or NC's oldest microbrewery. Try the rum that was thought to "kill the devil" from our very first Distillery in Manteo. Even rainy days can be diverted by indulging in handmade fudge, salt-water taffy or hand-made cones along Duck Boardwalk or Tanger Outlets.
