While there are many opinions on which restaurants are the “Best on the Beach.” There are several that we at the Comfort Inns North and South prefer when we go out or have dinner delivered. Here are a few that we really enjoy.
Sam and Omie’s is a great local spot. You will definitely not go hungry when you go here. They have everything from salads to seafood platters, as well as excellent adult beverages. It helps that it is an easy walk (3 blocks) from our Comfort Inn South in Nags Head .
Almost right next door to Sam and Omie’s, in the middle of some of The Outer Banks’ beautiful vacation homes , is a great little ice cream joint called Fatboy’s. Perfect for that after-dinner treat. They are also open for lunch, serving sandwiches and a tuna-q that is barely legal. It’s that good!
A little further North, you will find Blue Moon Beach Grille. They have a fun atmosphere and a good variety of seafood dishes. Try the fish tacos!
Almost in the parking lot of Comfort Inn North, you will find great pizza and ice cream. American pie is literally right across the street (cross at the crosswalk) and has many delicious options, but the pepperoni pizza and the banana pudding ice cream are employee favorites.
A little further down from Comfort Inn Kill Devil Hills, nestled between a few OBX oceanfront hotels , is The Kill Devil Grille. The Grille usually has a wait, so plan on that, but it is worth it. The fried chicken salad with their homemade ranch dressing is superb.
Not leaving out the furry family members, there are several restaurants not too far from either hotel that is pet-friendly. Mulligans, Blue Moon, American Pie, and Shipwrecks are just a few with great food and patio seating that allows your four-legged family to also join you for dinner. Mulligan’s even has a doggie menu with items such as dog-friendly fried rice and burgers. The doggie dishes are served in a Frisbee so your favorite pup has a toy for the beach! Both of our Front Desks have a list of dog-friendly restaurants, so be sure to ask us!
If you would rather stay in and have something delivered, we enjoy the pizza and subs from Yellow Submarine OBX. The pizza is cooked to perfection and the subs are overstuffed! DoorDash is also available on the beach, so that is always an option.
While these are just a few, there are many other excellent restaurants near our two OBX hotels . There is someone at our front desk 24 hours a day, so feel free to ask for further recommendations while you are here! Safe travels. We look forward to your visit!
