Jess & Derik's Guide to the Outer Banks

Local Favorites- LO & LO
Local hot spots from restaurants and bars to quick eats & take out. These are all LO & LO (locally owned & locally operated) establishments & we hope you'll support them during your visit! These are spots where you’ll see year-round locals working & frequenting.
Duh, we’re right downstairs, it’s the whole reason you’re here right?!

We also have a great selection of vintage and new clothing and lots of locally made items to take home to your friends and family!

Walking distance! Just a block or two away- can grab a drink (or three) and walk home! Huge craft burgers, Yummy southern appetizers like fried pickles and green beans, plus their chicken brine sandwich is insane!! Top notch oysters and bourbon selection if that’s more your thing.

Best breakfast!! (Art’s is small and will be packed!) Great burgers. Ocean view bar & deck...Monday night jazz. They stay current on their Instagram, check them out there for events and specials! And absolute hands-down, local favorite hot spot.

Nothing fancy here, just a good ol' hot dog and some cheese fries. (The Chicago dog is a perennial favorite but I go for the Surf Doggy aka bacon dog!). Fast- even when the line is out the door- cheap, and they have outdoor seating!

One of our favorite things to do is fill a cooler with snacks and drinks from Cahoons and then head to the southern beaches for the day! They also have a deli where they make subs & sandwiches.

A local icon. Get the Dolphin boat, it's what they're known for (burgers aren't bad either, but you're here for the vibe, the experience & the beach). If they have fried okra and that's yo' thing, give it a try! Many people love it, I'm not one of them LOL. Skip the milkshakes and get those from us! We don't love the amount of styrofoam used here. But they're good LO & LO people, so check them out! (walking distance)

Breakfast & Lunch
With the exception of Duck Donuts, these are also locally owned & operated establishments. Most of the places we share in our guidebooks are LO & LO (locally owned & locally operated) with the exception of only a few. Several of these places also serve dinner, so make sure to view their full menu. Henry’s is closest spot for a diner style breakfast.
One of our favorites, a local hot spot! Great sandwiches & coffee plus a good beer & wine selection. Hit them up for breakfast or lunch! One of our favorite daytime spots! I get the Bud bagel and Derik usually gets the Chuck sandwich. Yum!

Breakfast in walking distance! Nothing to brag about but we love their “captains” breakfast… With eggs, your choice of meat, a couple pancakes, choice of grits or country hash browns or baked apples…A basic, filling breakfast to get your day rolling. Lots of locals!! Very inexpensive.

Foodie scene
For such a small town there really is a lot of good foodie options here. And lots of chef-owned restaurants which may surprise you. Some of these are super low-key spots, don't discount them or judge a book by it's cover (or curb appeal). But most of the restaurants in this category are what may be considered "fine dining" for the Outer Banks; though nothing here is super dressy, so don't fret if you don't have a jacket or dress- you'll be just fine! And please let our other visitors know [in our guest book] if you try somewhere you’ve really enjoyed! We love to get your feedback!

We have still not gotten a chance to go to Duck & try chef Wes's newest restaurant… Please let us know what you think! The menu looks amazing!! Open for lunch & dinner, but we'd try it for lunch- basically the same menu but less expensive plates. Then take a walk down the Duck boardwalk!

Chef driven fare with a changing menu; located on the water. Take in a sunset while you wait for a table. Nicer/fine dining, you may want to dress appropriately.

You won’t regret a day trip to pea Island, or the southern beaches! Worth the drive… You’ll likely have the entire strip of beach to yourself! Avoid this area if you are not a good swimmer (or stay in the tidal pools or  shallow waters.) Great for walking, birding, picnics, photography & nature!

Must visit!! (Take a water!) It’s a longer walk than you think to get to the top, but don’t give up!! The view is well worth the effort. During the Summer months the sunset view will be enjoyed with hundreds of other people, so get there early to make sure you’re at the top for sunset! PRO TIP: The walk is shorter if you park across the street (At or near Kitty Hawk Kites), crossing at the crosswalk and hiking straight up. If you park at the state park entrance, the walk is much longer!

A sunset you'll never forget! The view is unbeatable from the top, but if you're feeling sluggish, keep driving to just south of the Dune- take a right on Soundside Drive. At the end on the right, there's a small parking area on the sound where you can dip your toes in the water and take in the sunset (But AGAIN- the view is worth it from the top!)

Actually, Lucky’s has decent food & pizza too (they serve pizza until 2am). Huge beer selection on tap.
Good food and drinks. Nightly shows and music during Summer months (sometimes year-round, check their Instagram) and a nice outdoor area with games, etc.

Filed this locally owned spot under “bars” as it’s one of the few places open til 2am. They also have a great variety of nightly music [nearly] year round. It’s a brewery, bar & restaurant & they’re leading the way with their “green” initiatives. Good food, a few vegetarian & vegan options.

Outdoor bar. Can get pretty packed upstairs at happy hour & beyond. Decent food, good happy hour specials. It's kind of the "Happy Hour" crowd.

Another Local hot spot in walking distance. AKA “beer pier”. There’s a bar (and soon to be, a 2nd bar upstairs on the deck) There’s an arcade inside. A hangout for surfers, fishermen and old salts. If the surf is big or there’s a hurricane coming, this is where the action happens and everyone will be!
