Saw a great review in the local "Coastal Times" about how "Stack 'em High Pancakes" was ALSO a terrific place for lunch. So with 2 'locals' who'd never been there before, spouse and I went for lunch. We arrived about 12:30 pm -- 90 mins before "Stack 'em High" closes at 2 pm. As we expected, there were only two... More

Hands down, this is the place to eat breakfast when you are visiting the Outer Banks in Kitty Hawk. The French toast is delicious, just get your strawberry toppings on the side. It's a busy place because the secret is out. But the servers are busy getting you what you need and are very friendly and attentive. Check it out... More

Even though it was nearly 11 am, I really wanted breakfast. This was one of the only places we could find that serves breakfast all the time. There was a bit of a line when we went in, but we ordered and were seated within about 10 minutes. They had very good iced tea, perfectly cooked over medium eggs, and... More

We ate breakfast here and thought the food was good but nothing spectacular. Wait staff was very friendly and we got our food quickly. Seemed to bea place that a lot of the locals eat at.

This breakfast/brunch place closes at 2 pm, so arriving for lunch at 1:30 found the place empty and the owner ready to accommodate. He whipped up delicious sliders for my wife and an excellent grilled Reuben for me. The sliders were tiny Big Macs, only better. The Reuben had caramelized sauerkraut and homemade rye. This place might be hectic for... More

Overflowing parking lot, long lines, but average food. You walk down a cafeteria-style line choosing fruit and ready-made food and/or placing an order. You are given a number which enables a server to bring your food to you. Unfortunately, our server did not bring part of our order and had to return later once I was almost done with the... More

This restaurant has been a tradition for us for many years after staying at the Outer Banks and on our way back home to Virginia. The food and service here is fantastic! It is truly amazing how many people come here and how fast we are served.
