Fatty's treats and tours is an exciting new business on the outer banks! We have 24 flavors of Hershey's ice cream, milkshakes, smoothies, shaved ice, gifts, toys, and our always popular T-shirts with Fatty the seagull! If your looking for a way to burn off those calories or just a fun way to spend the day with the family Fattys is conveniently located on some of the best kayaking grounds on the entire outerbanks! Our tours take you on a trip through time to visit the very spot the English first landed in the new world. There are sting rays, and fish at play in the water, and egrets, pelecians, and heron to watch in the air! Fattys is an experience for everyone of all ages so come out and support locals, and have a great time!

We loved it here! Lunch options in January are very limited, when we spotted this restaurant and noticed it was open we decided to give it a try. Very interesting menu options, just had to try the daily special. There were 4 in our party and we each ordered something different. No one was disappointed. Only 1 waitress working but... More

We were looking for a place to get a light lunch after leaving the Hatteras lighthouse and Fatty's was right there as we were leaving Buxton. We stopped and were not disappointed. It's worth the stop just to read all the sayings they have hanging in the restaurant. Service was exceptional and the food very tasty. The french fries had... More

So many choices of ice cream and they were all wonderful. You can get a small cone with two different flavors so we did that for a few day to try all of our flavors. The service was friendly and quick. Would return and try one of their tours.

We are huge fans of Shrimp and Grits, and Fatty’s has the best, hands down. They are perfectly cooked with a creamy mushroom sauce, with pieces of sausage and peppers, absolute heaven. The portions are generous and the staff is amazing. The owner/chef comes out to check on the patrons and is extremely approachable and friendly. This is our new... More

We needed a late lunch after climbing the lighthouse and this was close and quick. The location is nothing to write home about and the food is overpriced because they know people will pay. In any case, the staff was great and we were taken care of more than anticipated. We had a sampling of items from a hot dog... More

Great kayak tour of the Sound with owner Jeff. Very relaxed and informative. We were contemplating renting on our own but didn't have much experience and would have never learned so much about the Island. Also added bonus that there is a great ice cream shop attached! Both are must-dos.

Had a wonderful ice cream treat at fatty's, then stayed at camp hatteras motel and just loved it! Close to the ocean and the sound. It was clean, beautiful and the owner is very friendly! The owners are father and son. Would highly recommend these places to everyone.

Jeff, the owner of Fatty's, served his ice cream at my daughter's wedding reception from his ice cream cart and was a huge hit! Everyone raved about how good the ice cream was but Jeff was also just such an upbeat, fun addition to the evening! He made sure that each guest felt special and was happy! He was also... More
