Best seafood restaurant

We are thinking of going to the Outer Banks this spring. Would like recommendations for some great seafood restaurants in the area. It has been years since we visited the area.

Thanks!!

Hey PeachBelle, it's actually been several years since I've been to the OBX, too, but we always liked Tortuga's Lie (can't remember if it's Kitty Hawk or Nags Head or Kill Devil Hills, but right along in there). When I looked recently it was still going strong and had good reviews.

Where are you staying? The Outer Banks is really big.

You are really close to I Got Your Crabs in Kitty Hawk. A great no frills restaurant. They have all kinds of seafood. Check out the menu online. They have wonderful reviews on Tripadvisor.

The Hampton is up in Corolla and not as many places to choose from up there in the off season. Near the Hilton you have the Black Pelican on the beach rd 3 miles south which is a nice place with good food and easy to get in. There is a fine place call Ocean Blvd on the beach road 2 miles south of the Hilton and it is really good and a bit more pricey. Across from the Black Pelican on Kitty Hawk Rd is Hurricane Mo's and you will not be disappointed in the food there either. On the bypass around mile post 4 (the Hilton is at mp 1) is Barefoot Bernie's and the food there is great. If you want BBQ just go across the street from the Hilton to High Cotton BBQ - great!!

One more that's convenient to the Hilton is Rundown. I highly recommend the Coconut Chicken Salad, preferably on the ocean view deck. If you like jazz, swing by Art's Place and see if anyone is playing while you are there.
