No Outer Banks vacation is complete without exploring the unique eateries we have in abundance here on the OBX. Although you might be in love with the kitchen in your Twiddy vacation rental, you MUST give yourself a break and venture out to get a taste (or two or three) of the local fare while you’re here! After all, food is one of the best parts of any vacation and the Outer Banks in particular happens to be teeming with unforgettable restaurants for you to try.
Most local Outer Banks restaurants are independently-owned and operated, allowing them to put their own personal spin and unique touch on your experience. Not only do Outer Banks restaurants provide some of the freshest seafood around, but restaurant owners here really understand the meaning of hospitality. So when you’re dining out on the Outer Banks, be ready to be entertained by live, local music; spoiled by savory recipes you won’t find anywhere else; pampered with cool, refreshing cocktails after a long day at the beach; and in some places, enchanted as you wash it all down while watching the waves crash in the surf, or the sun setting into the sound.
No matter what it is that sets the restaurant you choose apart from the others, there is one thing for sure, Outer Banks restaurants work and plan all year long to make sure to leave you with a meaningful, lasting impression long after your vacation has ended.
We’ve put together a list of some of the most popular establishments from the 4x4 Beaches down to Nags Head and everywhere in between, to help you in your quest for the perfect thirst-quenching, hunger-satisfying delectables to try during your Outer Banks vacation.
