Stayed across the street at a rental house on Ocean Isle Loop. This place has been there for awhile and we never knew it! Great beers on tap and atmosphere! Food was free (they don't have a kitchen, but they make soups, stews, etc.). We...More

Great place to relax and try the many mixed drinks. The Melon Felon was delicious! There is a $1 cover to become a member as this is considered a private club, but anyone can become a member and bring up to 5 guests.

Went in for a drink & to listen to the Blues Band. Great drinks, nice bar tenders. It's a social club so you have to pay $1 to become member prior to getting served. Great atmosphere

Bought their ground coffee at a local farm stand in Salvo. great stuff. I can't speak much to their facility, but their coffee (grounds) are very good. The Nicaraguan coffee is a favorite of mine.

Hi! Just curious where you were, because we are definitely not a coffeehouse! Cheers!

We stopped in Turner's for a quick drink. We stopped in on a Friday about 6PM and there were only a couple other people there. The beer selection was excellent. They also had a shuffle board.

This was a nice late afternoon getaway from the heat. Turner's has a fantastic and eclectic beer selection with a knowledgeable staff. There are only a few multi-tap places in the small town of Avon and this heads the list. There is a limited food...More

Turner's High Moon Bar is located in Downtown Avon at Kinnakeet Corner at the traffic light and intersection of NC 12 and Harbor Rd.
Our atmosphere is eclectic and stylish while remaining warm and friendly. You'll find 21 craft brews on draft, 8 draft wines and an impressive cocktail list made with fresh ingredients.
Since opening in June, 2014, we have attracted many of the island's very talented musicians and artists, as well as bands from all over who want to include Turner's on their tour, which honors us and makes us feel pretty cool. During the summer we generally have music 5 nights a week. In the off season we have live performances on Fridays and Saturdays. There is plenty of room to mingle, dance and shoot a game of shuffleboard on our gorgeous 18' table. We are also hosting the Hatteras Island Poker League every Sunday with sign in at 7 pm. We plan to make our outside deck even more appealing since everyone loves to be outside in our lovely island weather.
We hope to have a bar menu offering small plates starting this spring. We are a bar without a kitchen, which makes us a Private Club. Membership is required and the annual dues are $1.
Turner's is the locals' favorite gathering place and a destination that guests to the island won't want to miss. You'll have a fun time while being treated with respect and kindness. Open year round.
