GOOD breakfast and dinner food in Nags Head?

Leaving June 6th for Milepost 15 in Nags Head for a week.Anyone had good experiences with restaurants that serve good country breakfast or seafood dinner meals? If you have and don't mind sharing it would be appreciated? We know Capt.George's is a must for one dinner meal.

  1. I can't speak for breakfast.

    But for dinner Tortuga's Lie and Mama Kwans are both really good.

    1. Sam and Omie's is a good breakfast place. As is Henry's in KDH.

      Also, Outer banks is in NC, so this should be on the Southeast board.

      1. Since you are going to be there for a week, pick a nice blue day to head over to

        wanchese nc. They have a small seafood restaurant over there. The food is good but the view is exceptional.

          What is the name of the restaurant?

            I honestly do not know the name. I believe they have a sign out on the main drag before you turn down that road. Just stay on the main road until you see the bay and the harbor. There is only one restaurant and it is right on the water. Zoom in on this map. A click or two you will see Wanchese. From there keep zooming in to the bottom right. The road basically ends right after the restaurant.

                Have you eaten there and agree with supernc on the good food served there ?

                  it's okay...certainly not the best on the beach. I would eat at Daryl's in Manteo or Lone Cedar before Queen Anne's Revenge.

              Looks like Fisherman's Wharf on 345. Look for the white area on the posted map link.

          2. The dinner highlight of our trip last year was the Kill Devil Grill. Wonderful food.

            1. Have you been to Capt. George's? I'm always skeptical of buffets but they do seem to have lots of variety. How's the quality?
