Freshness is the hallmark of dining on the Outer Banks of North
Carolina. Offering much more than just seafood, the barrier islands are
home to over 160 locally owned and operated restaurants. You'll be
delighted by a diverse offering of culinary delights in unique settings,
with menus dreamed up by the finest-trained chefs.
Nothing beats locally caught seafood - you can taste the difference in
ours. We have the finest Watermen in the world who bring in plump
oysters, savory shrimp, fresh Gulfstream tuna, East Coast scallops,
and many other fresh fish daily to our docks. Locally caught means
it's the freshest it can be, it's affordable, and it's prepared by trained
Chefs that know it well and prepare it often. Expect to enjoy the freshest
seafood available when you dine on the Outer Banks.
There are some additional Outer Banks events usually planned for this
weekend, The First Flight Cruisers Annual Shamrock Car Show
and Poker Run, the Kelly's Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade and the
Annual Running of The Leprechauns 8k.
