  • 4

Need some input on Nags Head, NC. Specifically a good sports bar, good places for breakfast/brunch and a good casual seafood place. Thanks for any help you can provide. The sports bar is top priority :-)

  1. Lucky 12 and Red Drum in Nags Head and Barefoot Bernie's in Kitty Hawk should take care of the sport's bar needs. Just about any place with a bar will have a TV on.

    Lucky 12 Tavern @ 3308 S. Virginia Dare Trail, Nags Head, NC 252 - 255 - 5825.

    Sam and Omie's has outstanding breakfast. Lone Cedar is great casual seafood place. It's right on the water with good view and plenty of space. Blue Moon is much smaller but casual with outstanding seafood. It's in a strip mall off the beach road. There are several TV's at Blue Moon. Tortugas Lie is a great casaul caribbean seafood joint with a nice bar and TV's.

      Just got back from the Outer Banks. Would highly recommend Sam and Ormie's for breakfast as well as Mama Kwan's - great blackened fish tacos and a cool vibe. Went to Kill Devil Grill for dinner one night and it was good as well - had crab cakes but liked Mama Kwans better and it was less expensive. Duck Donuts is good as well as they make each donut to order.

        We just got back also. Had lunch at Kill Devil Grill and it was very good. Dinner at Ocean Boulevard which was OUTSTANDING.

        We went to Sam & Omie's and I just didn't get it. Ordinary breakfast, long lines. We were quickly seated at the bar but it took over an hour to get our food.

        Our last visit to the Lone Cedar was a disaster. The two of us were seated in a section with a large group, and we were completely ignored by our server. We made our concerns known, but no one seemed to care. My husband had to get up to get his own tea refills several times. It took forever for each course to arrive, and nobody ever checked back with us to see what else we might need. To make it worse, there were several employees who just stood around, doing nothing. Our worst Outer Banks experience ever.
