We chose to eat here but should have known when they didn't print the prices in the menu guide. My husband had a broken foot and was using a knee scooter and they asked him if they could take it out and put in away for him. Must have embarrassed them. They bring out cheese and crackers at first Cheese... More

This is my 3rd trip into this restaurant over the course of 6 years. It is a very busy place with crowded dining. Charlotte was an excellent server this time. Food came out when it was supposed to and no inordinate waits in between. They bring out some cheese spread to start things off cheese is good crackers were boring... More

We had dinner there twice, and both times it was very good. This is a surprising big restaurant, which consists of a number of smaller rooms. The menu is varied, service efficient and friendly, and there is a good wine list, many available by the glass. We can recommend Owen's.

There's a reason this restaurant has been in operation for 60+ yrs. Service is impeccable, menu sophisticated and wonderfully prepared and presented. Small shop filled with small, elegant gifts. If you can only visit one restaurant in Nags Head, make it this one!

Every time we visit Nags Head we always enjoy dinner at Owens. Every meal we have had has always been exceptionally. The salads are so fresh and all the dressing are made in house. We normally will order a daily special. I have never been disappointed. I just remembered the hush puppies are so good.

The food was fabulous. Very vintage outer banks feel to the décor. The prices are high, would not recommend to a family, but makes a nice date night. try the lobster bisque!

This is my wife and my second time at Owens and we wanted to take our two sons there this time. We told them how great the food was and they were skeptical until the food arrived. The service was excellent the food even better.

Here with group for meetings all week. Reservations for 30 were easily accommodated as Sept is past peak tourist season. Deceptively large but cozy seating area with lots of spar varnished wood and nautical theme throughout. Bar upstairs had one daft selection - Natty Greene, a beer from Greensboro. Escargot, scallops and crab appetizers were excellent. Calamari was average. The... More

we went to Owen's which is right across from the motel we were staying at, the Sea Foam. We had a great meal and they were very accommodating to my gluten free needs. we will definately go back the next time we venture down Nag's Head way.

This is a long established restaurant with a good reputation. We have dined here from time to time over the years and recently returned with friends. We were fortunate that it was past the high season and had no trouble being seated. The décor is quite interesting and I am particularly fascinated with the wide selection of oyster plates on...
