Coastal Provisions has great salads, shrimp and grits, and other coastal specialties, and amazing oysters. A great place for a casual yet exceptional meal. Great beer selection on tap. Never disappoints.

This is an eclectic cross between a fresh seafood market, butcher, and wine store. They even have a section with fresh produce! We had great raw oysters (good selection), on tap beer (also a good selection- oyster stout was amazing), fish tacos (very good with unique salsa), salad with their homemade mozzarella (yum), fries, and a very good pumpkin cheesecake...

Well this was not at all like we thought it would be. I expected a restaurant but it is a mini grocerystore and restaurant. Two rooms, one had live music(you could here in both rooms) also an outside section. Tons of wines, and some very reasonably priced. I noticed couples that did not finish the bottle had it recorked and... More

Once there was a delicatessen and fish market that served great meals to go. Next door was a wine store with a great selection of affordable wines. So what to do? Well, you knock down the wall between them and build a great casual restaurant. The result: Coastal Provisions Oyster Bar & Wine Bar Cafe. The food counter still offers... More

We stopped on the way back from seeing the wild horses in Corolla and loved this place! The wine list is amazing and oysters and cheeses were top shelf! What a cool concept of wine bar with gourmet food and live music. Put it on your list!

This was our first visit here and we enjoyed it. I had the scallops with homemade pasta and my wife had halibut. Both were very well prepared and tasty. We like the ability to pick out a wine from the store and not get an up charge for opening . We look forward to another visit

We ate at this restaurant twice during a recent visit to OBX. The restaurant has a nice relaxing atmosphere. The crab bites and crab cakes are absolutely divine and Guy's Scallops are truly the best scallops I've ever eaten.

Tucked away in a shopping area this flagship of the 3 restaurant group which also includes the marvelous Cravings and Coastal Cantina, this provides upscale meals with nice ambiance, an extensive oyster selection, fresh seafood at reasonable pricing for the quality. Beer and wine selection are commensurate with the quality of the food and the service is attentive, informed but... More

Brie-L-T. Fabulous. I get this sandwich every time I am in town. The break is amazing, the brie is so creamy, the bacon is great.

Coastal Provisions is in a small shopping "center" at the turn off just accross the bridge as you head up NC 12 towards Duck and parts north. You either need to stop there or, once you get to your northern destination, come back. It is a terrific little place. We had dinner there upon our arrival--and we plan to do... More

Gourmet Market turned restaurant featuring fresh local seafood, steaks, crabcakes to die for, creative sandwiches of house roasted meats on fresh baked bread, and one of the best selection of oysters on the East Coast. Outside dinning in season, extensive wine selection and best prices too.
