Place does not look that good but when you start eating you will jump for joy how good the food is. Do not judge a book by it's cover.

Had lunch here. Looks to have a lot of local patrons. Visited in off-season so no outside service- which we were OK with since NC was having unseasonably warm weather. Had the 'five alarm burger'... It is not a burger for the weak..but was awesome none the less. Spicy burger with jalapeños, grilled onions, pepper jack cheese, and hot,spicy mustard.... More

The first night we got into Kitty Hawk I saw the reviews for Art's Place and that they had the best burger, and boy did that hold true. My husband and I both got burgers and they were cooked to perfection, I did think it was a little greasy and I thought I would feel bad from it but it... More

The food is fabulous. The breakfast is delicious and reasonable. A fun place to hang out and play corn hole. Great jazz band on Monday night and fun karaoke on Wednesday.

If I eat five hamburgers a year it's a lot. Sometimes you just have a hankering for a burger. Art's Place hit that urge with a mouth watering, flavorful creation. I had the Swiss mushroom burger and fries. Good people, funky environment--looked like a casual, local joint to go with friends for drinks, burgers and a good time.

Want to watch the beach while you're sipping a beer or wine? This is the place in Kitty Hawk. Climb the stairs and sit on the rooftop deck. No beers on tap though and a thin choice of wines. Good friendly crowd and you can have a game of Corn Hole while you're waiting for dinner. Just a casual, local... More

OMG! These are the best hamburgers and hand cut fries. We added bacon to the burgers. Best burgers we have ever had. Hot and fresh. Loved the fries. Everything was great. Friendly service and the prices were great.

Art's Place is a Kitty Hawk institution and makes the best burgers on the island. Their staff is accommodating and friendly. 11 of us showed up and though there are only 4 tables they made it work for us to sit together. We go every year and always enjoy the food and the company.

My husband and started out to go to John's Drive In but they were closed for the season. That was our gain because we fell across Art's. From our car, we could hear Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Eric Clapton and the Stones as we walked in. We sat at the bar, ordered drinks and food and felt very comfortable... More
