Big Oak Drive In in Salter Path, NC
Anyone know if it is open during the off season. We are going down next week, and I would love to have a shrimpburger. I know a lot of restaurants close for the winter.
Closed for the season (and my mouth was watering, too!) along with almost all of the fresh-seafood markets - it looks like most places will be opening back up early or mid-March.
Red Barn Grill in Swansboro, NC is still open (and perhaps even the attached seafood market). It's something of a local legend down there - open 6 a.m. - 9 p.m. every day. Apparently they serve great seafood platters and fresh and local whenever possible (straight from their market, which is straight from their boat). See blog: http://viewfromthemountain.typepad.co...
If you're going to be down that way anyway, you might want to check it out.
You may want to try the Croatan Cafe in Newport, especially if you like oysters.
Worth a visit, or twelve....
Thanks for the replies! I called and they are open on weekends from 11-3. So, hopefully I can get my fix.
Mikeh, I will try and hit the Red Barn Grill. As many years as i have been going to the island, I have never tried it.
