January in OBX

I'll be staying in Nag's Head the last 2 weeks. If they are open, I plan on

Blue Moon Beach Grill
Mama Kwan's
Roadside Grill (Duck)
Kill Devil Grill
The Sugar Shack
Food Dude's

Any suggestions to add to the list? Last year I wasn't impressed with Lone Cedar at Whalebone Junction. Sam & Omies isn't open in January. Otherwise...all ideas are welcome!

  1. Hi! We went to Tale of the Whale - it was fantastic!

    1. Blue Moon is the newcomer in town and is fantastic. Try the Mahi BLT.
      Mama's is always a great option. I believe they are closing the 17th though.
      Roadside is fabulous and does a great lunch too if they are open.
      KDH Grill is reopening on the 20th I think.
      Sugar Shack - I could take it or leave it.
      Don't miss Food Dudes. My new favorite. It's amazing and very reasonably priced but a hole in the wall.

        I developed a fondness for Sugar Shack's steamed oysters and shrimp. Perfectly done.

      2. I think Blue Moon is closed this month- reopening in February. I think they are expanding.

              Sam and Omies is closed, per the OP.

            2. Blue Moon, Mama Kwans, & apparently Roadside Grill (no answer) are not open.

              Thoughts on Tortugas Lie?
              South Beach Grill?

                Tortugas Lie is a fun, casual place. The food is good - I've been there for a late lunch several times and get their fish tacos or grilled fish sandwich.

                South Beach Grill gets great reviews - have been wanting to go for a while but unfortunately hvae not made it yet - maybe on my trip this year.

                1. re: SweetPea

                  Roadside is open like Thursday - Saturday

                  1. re: SweetPhyl

                    I was in Duck on Monday & saw that on their sign - thanks! I'll go back up there. Food Dudes didn't make my tastebuds sing out like I wanted. I had fish tacos that were just OK.
