Places To Eat
The dining is one of the best things about visiting the Outer Banks.  From local seafood to regional BBQ to Southern home-cooking to amazing fine dining… and everything in between (seriously), finding and eating great food should be a priority of your vacation.  If you ask me about a specific cuisine, ambiance, location, price point, wine list, martini bar, micro-brewery, coffee shop, deli, pizza, breakfast…  I will share my secrets. In the meantime, here are the spots where I eat all the time and where I send guests most often.  They are not my picks for fine dining or specialty situations, like the best breakfast (I don’t have enough space!).  Some are well-known, some are new, some are off the beaten path.  All have awesome food for lunch or dinner meals.  The list is in no particular order.
